I am so excited that this week, I have reached several of my mini goals. First, I have lost more than 25 pounds and I have now lost 10% in about 20 weeks. I feel like the little tortoise going along--not setting the world on fire but so much closer to that finishing than when I began.
I owe so much to my Spark friends. Their words of encourage help meet challenges head on. I especially draw strength hearing how others succeed on this healthier living journey. I can not say enough how much that means to me.
In addition to the weight loss, my activity level is up, my quality of sleep is better and I feel so much better
I am wrapping up my book on family history; it should be ready to publish by the 20th of this month. The process of writing this has brought me so much closer to my family. I am so glad I can give this to my siblings this summer. Hopefully other relatives will take up the work and move it forward. One of my goals was to include our spiritual heritage, and I feel I have accomplished this in a way that it is there without sounding preachy.
