This is something I should have written before now, but better late then never. I am not good at this so bear with me.

Thanks to Tamika a friend and co-worker I have lost 30 pounds and counting. She was losing and looking good and always so happy. She told me about sparkpeople and said I should visit. I didn't. We talked about it several times and I finally visited. Nothing serious just tried to look around. Then I went to the doctor and he said my blood pressure was high (it had always been low), and he wanted me to go on medicine. Not good. When who should come down to my area Tamika. Long story short she helped me sign up showed me some of the features and generally encouraged me.

Any time I had any questions, problems whatever there she was, always with a smile and a good word. She gives suggestions but isn't pushy In fact just the opposite. She would say you did bad that's ok do good today. When she thought she was doing bad she would come down and tell me. I saw her when she stared and I see her now, She looks wonderful and has earned it.

I am off track here this is really to thank her because I never would have done it without her. Everyone should have a friend like her to help them reach whatever goal they are trying to obtain. She understand baby steps and never makes you feel bad. Thanks Tamika for all you encouragement and guidance. I am sure I will have many more questions glad I have you to ask Everyone who knows her already knows what I mean.

I feel like I am rambling so let me stop. Just wanted everyone to know what a great motivator she is.

    Penny, on your progress! Even though you're lucky to have Tamika as your SparkPeople guide & co-worker, just remember without YOUR hardwork and dedication, your success would not be possible!
