Just Get Started!

Hello SparkMembers! I've been a new member since September 13th, 2013. I came here hoping this site will help me reach my goal of losing 20 pounds. It's now in the New Year of 2014 and I have lost pounds since being a member of Spark! I haven't reached my goal weight yet... but I know I will sometime in 2014!

I am happily married and have 2 wonderful kids. I'm in my early 40's and would like to meet others around the same age and older but any age is welcome. =)

Hello SparkMembers! I've been a new member since September 13th, 2013. I came here hoping this site will help me reach my goal of losing 20 pounds. It's now in the New Year of 2014 and I have lost pounds since being a member of Spark! I haven't reached my goal weight yet... but I know I will sometime in 2014!

I am happily married and have 2 wonderful kids. I'm in my early 40's and would like to meet others around the same age and older but any age is welcome. =)

In the past, I was a fit and healthy person and had no problem working out and eating right until I hit the extreme lows of depression. That illness changed me and my life big time! It took many years for me to get well again.

I am feeling better and am looking forward to being that "FIT and HEALTHY" person again. I just want that frame of mind I once had of keeping strong, fit and healthy but with a more positive outlook on life.

So here I am joined up to SparkPeople to get that "FIT-ME" back!



JUST GET STARTED!
And so I shall.


I do deserve to be healthy and confident and strong! =)


~ Don't Quit ~

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
