    Thank you so much for sharing this! I know how hard it must have been for you (and probably still is) to give up that part of your life. You are such an incredible person! I consider myself so lucky that I am now on a team with you where you bring your enthusiasm and spirit to help support me and your other Pink Viking teammates. I am so happy to be able to be a part of this new chapter in your life. emoticon

    Yolanda - I will miss you. We have only spoken on-line a few times but your vibrancy and passion for the BLC have always shone through. I hope perhaps in the future you will come back to us.

    Hey there Yo, emoticon
I just joined the BLC for the 1st time (the one coming up in September). So glad you will still be Sparking away.......and we are new friends....you betcha, I'll swing by and cheer you on in your life journey.

I totally respect your decision. I remember when my dear friend KV711LAW ( leader of the Quick Fire Team ) needed to leave...Oh! How I missed her, but things happen & we move on as seasons change in our lives. I am certain you will shine where ever you are!

I can feel how dearly loved YOU are! Thank you for giving the emoticon of yourself to So Many!!

Blessings, Laura emoticon

    I tried to listen to your message but the volume on my computer was not loud enough to hear you. I will try again this weekend.

    What are you two girls trying to do to me??? I mean... I hate goodbyes and I'm so aweful with them emoticon

I must say, my chica:) That I have been one of the fortunate ones that have worked very close to you and as I've told you before, I feel so blessed!! You have thought me SO much and have given me strength when I needed it most. You have given me tools that I treasure and use in BLC.
I'm, of course, going to miss you SO much. And I wish I had the opportunity to work with you in much earlier rounds. Because you are such a beautiful person!
Now that I've seen your Vlog, OMG I love your calmness and way of saying things!!
Seriously, there's only ONE you!!!
You are a great person, and watch out! You might be retiring from BLC but as long as you are on spark you are going to have me hanging around emoticon

    Thank you for all that you have done for the BLC! I've only been in the BLC for 3 rounds but I feel that I know you!! You've done an emoticon job and for that I thank you. You laid wonderful ground work for some one to follow. That is your legacy! You will be missed. emoticon

    I have been part of the BLC Team for the last 3 rounds and recognize all the work that went into making this Team such a help for those of us who struggle to lose weight. I appreciate your taking the time to explain your reasons for leaving and can fully understand ... you are very wise to recognize the needs of your family.

Thank you for all you have done. You will be missed. Blessings on your new endeavors.

    I always thought of you as the "face" of BLC, and you have always represented BLC SO well! You are such a gracious, patient person, always with a positive attitude, and that is SO important to those of of struggling on our fitness journey. We may not have been close friends, but I see your influence all the time, and I will certainly miss that. Your reasons for leaving are so very important...you and your family deserve the best, and I wish you all the best!

    Yo - We will certainly miss you! You have such a way of motivating and encouraging others. I know that your children will be happy to have more of your time. Know that we can't say THANK YOU enough for everything you have done for SO many.

Know that you aren't closing a book, just starting a new chapter. The chapters to come are built on the chapters you have already finished and that means your future will carry BLC with you.

Keep smiling and being the encourager you are to those around you - wherever that may be.

Much love,

Suzanne emoticon

    Thank you, YO for everything you have done for the BLC. I am happy that I got to be an Azurita with you, but regret not being able to get to know you even more. But hey! You're still going to be Sparkin' so there's still a chance. Your passion for the BLC and ALL of the Blc'rs is amazing. I wish you the best! :-)

    No Yo! That is so sad! I cannot thank you enough for all you've done for the BLCers and especially for coming to help out the Bombshells last round when our beloved Cappie Paula was getting married and our wonderful co-cappie Ferne was moving. You really helped me out and I hope you know how greatly appreciated you are!!

I wish you nothing but the very best in everything you do! emoticon

    Oh my gosh Yo, you are just so dang CUTE! I should have known the first part of your video would be 8+ minutes!!!! LOL Heck, your posts take AT LEAST that long to read! :-D I love that you are who you represent yourself to be in your posts - in real life :-) You're just as sweet, just as caring, just invested in this message as any post you could ever write, but I love seeing and hearing the sincerity in your message as well.

You were a fireball from the very beginning, and there was never any doubt that you were a perfect addition to the administrative aspect of this challenge. Your passion for life, weight loss and people is what sold us on you, and come thick or thin, it's always been a cornerstone of who you are.

I loved Yo~Meow, and I sure miss the Meow part, and it's just crazy to see the Yo side leaving too. But you gave me the courage to step away for real this time. I figure, if YOU can do it, "I" can do it :-)

Our rockers are waiting on the porch - it's time to watch the "grandkids" run the company :-D Love you!

(on to the next blog...)

    Awww, Yo, it's ok to cry, I know you're gonna miss it. I found myself tearing up some_(ok alot) while watching this. I"m gonna miss you but I know that there are going to be alot more that miss you as well, namely the administrators like Mel, Nicole and Jeni that have gotten to know you so well. But I understand completely. Being a challenge alone is a big commitment, being a leader like you have been for so many rounds must get overwhelming and very time consuming at times. Thanks for your sparkfriendship and support all these years and for all you've done for BLC. But real life must come first always and you've got your priorities straight. emoticon
