The Best is Yet to Come!

Hi My name is Rachel! Thank you for stopping by my page. December 27th, 2010 marks my first anniversary with "Sparks" I started Sparks 3 days after Christmas 2009 and reaching my highest weight, even pregnant.

When I turned 50 in July, I had quite the day, hence my red hat. I was embarrassed about my weight, but not enough to do something about it. I have used a red hat as my profile picture because it marks that point in time. Many "Spark" friends have encouraged me to have ...
Hi My name is Rachel! Thank you for stopping by my page. December 27th, 2010 marks my first anniversary with "Sparks" I started Sparks 3 days after Christmas 2009 and reaching my highest weight, even pregnant.

When I turned 50 in July, I had quite the day, hence my red hat. I was embarrassed about my weight, but not enough to do something about it. I have used a red hat as my profile picture because it marks that point in time. Many "Spark" friends have encouraged me to have my red hat photo retaken, and I've done just that. This picture reflects me at my goal weight. For those who missed my blog, find out more at "The Story behind the Red Hat," a celebration blog of 50 pounds down!

Sparks is an incredible site! It doesn't matter if you're 50, younger or older, you can achieve your goals. I say goals because I have applied the same principles I've learned about eating to different parts of my life.

For every passion or desire you may have, there are people and teams here that can and are willing to help you, including myself! Know the best is yet to come!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Hi Rachel,

I'm sorry your husband is going through that. And yes, for sure I will.

On Feb. 19th, I am being tested for that type of Arthritis and other types. Blood tests came back and my doctor thinks I may have that type of Arthritis. I am trying to get back in to Yoga because I was told it sure can help and also staying away from Wheat-gluten products and refine sugar. They say both can aggravate and worsen arthritic pain and swelling.

Hi Rachel! The lifetime miles awards are the miles you rack up on your fitness page if you keep track of miles. I don't know why I got them all at once. I really didn't run 500 miles this morning!

Thank you. It is good to be back. I really need to get busy and get back in shape from Christmas.

Did you enjoy Christmas? Are you well and surviving the cold?
