Hello to ALL my SPARK FRIENDS and fellow TEAM MATES !
I know, I know you are telling your body that it can sit and still lose the weight and make it to it's goal right? NOT SO ! You are also telling yourself that you can feed your body a little treat here and there and it will not gain weight am I right ? Am I HOT or COLD? So C'MON folks, I have been there and done that ! I was 250 pounds before I joined spark on July 3,2011 and I was miserable to say the least and I did the same thing. I would tell myself that it was alright that I sit that it was alright that I eat the wrong foods and that I would lose the weight eventually ! You know what NOT SO ! When I joined spark on July 3, 2011, my life took a 200 degree turn around and I began to see everything in a whole new light ! I began to see results in the first week and tilL this day, I have NOT gone back !!! I refuse to go back to that way of life ! On January 15, 2012 I reached my goal ! I am now a HEALTHY 124 pounds and I am maintaining this weight for the rest of my life ! Yes I said for the rest of my life ! I know that you CAN do it too my DEAR FRIENDS ! So, GET UP OFF the SOFA, and PUT THE FATTY FOODS DOWN, and GET OUT THERE and GET YOUR BODY MOV'IN and GROV'IN ! I DO NOT want to hear that you are to BUSY ! ( If you think you are to BUSY then you need to take a little WALK in my shoes and come spend a day with ME) !! You CAN'T ! I will start TOMORROW ! It's RAINING TODAY ! There are not any EXCUSES that you can come up with that will sit well with ME !!! I am a wife and a mother to 4 little BLESSINGS and they are the reason that I wake up in the morning ! I am also a Bird Breeder and Trainer ! I am BUSY and I still GET IT DONE ! I know that you CAN do this SO JUST DO IT !! I love you ALL ! ((((( Hugs))))) Rose

    How pray tell did you lose 125 pounds in 7 months? That is too amazing! I am shocked. I agree there can be no excuses, but that weight loss is beyond my imagination....

    Sing it! You are so right!
And as an animal lover and owner who has done rescue work, including some wild birds, I can only imagine how much work all of those breeding birdies are! Oh the cages you'll clean every day! But they are so very beautiful and sweet!
Thanks for this! Sparking on, here! emoticon

    You have done a fantabulous job! Wow! What an inspiration. I'm maintaining, too - but I have stress in my life that is far worse than it was when I gained the weight. So I need motivators like you to keep me from falling backwards again. God bless you!
