OMG..can you believe this?

When I started Spark, I was full of hope, but short on belief in myself. I had lost a few pounds on my own, always to gain them back.

My total weight balloned quickly to 536 pounds and I couldn't walk, couldn't breath without oxygen and ate to help myself to an early grave.

I am so happy to announce that I busted through the 5's..4's and 3's


Okay, I know some of you are thinking...good lord...she is happy about being 294 pounds?????


Lately so many people have asked me to be friends, they say I inspire them and they feel hopeless on their own journeys to health, but I don't want to inspire, I want to help

EMPOWER them on their own success story. Everyone has a success story in them and I hope to help each of you find that story within yourselves.

Thank you for all the frienship adds, motivational messages, lovely heart felt emails and for the constant support


My life is changing everyday and I am proud to call SPARK PEOPLE my home and so THANKFUL for all my friends here who accept

me for the person I WAS and for NEW the person that is unfolding before your eyes.

I love you all and remember......................

We can do anything we put our minds too...YOU GOT THIS BABY!

Much love and hugs,

from your blog you said "full of hope, but short on belief in myself."

I am hoping that you keep on with the self confidence. Your success is from your starting point to where you are at. You have done a lot to get here. Don't diminish. Give yourself the well deserved pat on the back!!! Yay! emoticon

I am just starting and your blog was very inspirational to me, because I have hope too and am making little changes and giving myself "woo hoo's" for teensy itsy bitsy steps... .

    Congratulations on all you have accomplished .
Of course you should be happy, you have reached another milestone.
I wrote a blog one time that said I was so happy I was 279 lbs. From my start of 335 ,you bet I was happy. For at other other times I would have given up by that time and not reached that weight. I was on Spark and felt empowered to really work at getting my life back.
So happy for you.
Take care, stay positive, believe you can and you will.

    You bet your bippy you are proud to be 294! Nothing compares to breaking a number. I am proud for you! I so look forward to being able to say that I broke that 200 number. Everyone has their own hurdles and each and every single one of them are to be celebrated - like it's 1999! You go girl! I am so happy for you. emoticon emoticon emoticon
