It's Been Awhile - Thought I Would Catch You Up

Monday, April 16, 2012

This is directed to my dear friends & family on the Wildflower's Live Its Team:

I am forever grateful to each of you for all the love & support you have shown me. If it wasn't for Spark, I don't think I would ever have felt there was any hope for me to be released from my inner prison. I've seen my sisters meet, exceed & maintain their goal weight over & over again. I learned how to document every morsel of food that went into my mouth. I learned how to exercise (and enjoy it!).

I dropped out of the communication loop for a long time while I was weathering several personal storms. But, as always, the Lord has brought me through to the other side with few battle scars. My mother is now in a nursing home very close to me and thriving. She looks better than ever & that makes me so happy.

My husband recently had major back surgery & it was very successful. Although he has a long recovery ahead of him, we are happy that it is all downhill from here. (He gets his stitches out on Thursday.)

I have joined a local Weight Watchers group. I find documenting everything I eat is much easier for me on Weight Watchers. It's a simpler program & so much is already in the points system. I now have it on my computer & my iPhone. Every morsel that goes into my mouth gets tracked. (Spark trained me well.) I joined on Feb. 23rd of this year & have lost steadily every single week. My biggest loss was 5.2lbs and my smallest was .4lbs. Needless to say, I'm doing my happy dance every week.

I will check in with my favorite team from time to time. And I hope I am invited to any and ALL events that my team participates in. I just won't be tracking on Spark.

Please know I'm sending out HUGE Hugs & warm kisses to everyone. I love you ALL!!!!

In Him,

    Hi Karine! Its so nice to see you again! I'm sorry to hear that you've been through a tough time, but praise be to God who helped you through it all. Thank you for the update. I fully understand the tracking thing, but I do hope you're not leaving spark completely. Just pop by and come hang out with us in the team a bit from time to time :-)

    emoticon for you Karine. I too have had some very trying times lately. And I watched some weight creep back on. I had thought about joining Wt. watchers too, or something similar. I love my Wildflowerr's and usually try to check with what's going on with them but I don't spend as much time on the computer anymore. I try to get on and respond but can't spend a lot of time chatting anymore.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to hearing great things with your weight loss journey.
