Stuff That Was More Fun 40Something Lbs Lighter

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, August 18, 2012

A lot of things are more fun to do, 40-something pounds lighter. Yes, I know. Thank you, Captain Obvious. But there's a difference between knowing something and KNOWING something. Come along for the ride, as I make that discovery for myself. Stuff like this is more fun if you share it.

Oh, here's a couple of quick pics:

    Oh my, you're AMAZING!!! This was more than a year ago, and I can only imagine what you look like now. I'm going to have to investigate this little mystery!!! You've given me new courage to try some things that I've been putting off, and but no longer! I'll go to an amusement park and get on some of the rides, not all of them, but some. I'll be a kid, everyday of my life! Oh wait, I already do that! Thank you so much for your inspirational video and your pictures you so lovingly shared with me.

Be blessed

    This is a recommended site on today's session of Spark Coach/consistency program. I sure am glad they featured it. I may have missed it otherwise considering it is almost a year old.

What fun! Watching is like being there with you and your family.

I live in Colorado and the beauty never ceases to amaze me. You've inspired me to hike a trail I've never been on. (I could hike a new one every day and never in my lifetime hit so much as half of them!)

I'm so glad you keep on sparking! emoticon

    This vlog was used as an example on my Spark Coach today. Wonderful vlog, so much fun. I am so glad you took us around Co. I live in Co., so have been to some of those places you showed, and love them. I am so glad you were able to come here to visit. Life is more fun almost 40 pounds lighter.

    You are such a inspiration. I actually live in Colorado and just love that area you were at. Our favorite camping area is not too far from Chimney rock. It is an inspiration to me because last time I was at Chimney rock, my husband and his family went up and I could not because the climb was too hard. Thanks for sharing. MJ

    This is the first vlog I've ever actually watched all the way through.

Know what I can do 40 pounds lighter? I can go up the big extension ladder to paint my house without panicking that it's going to collapse. I checked the weight capacity and and I'm within it! Just barely, but... YAAAY!

Thanks for your happy inspiration!
