Grateful! Sometimes it's the little things...

I was applying some skin lotion this morning, while sitting on the edge of the tub. I didn't even notice what I'd done until I put the bottle of lotion down: I applied the lotion from hip to toe with my leg completely lifted and extended outward!

I know, to some, it may seem trite, but the fact that I could even lift my leg while sitting let alone extend it out while bending over? I was over the moon! Before I started SP on July 1, 2012, I was on medication for arthritis, I literally couldn't walk up the three stairs of my front porch without pushing off on my own thigh and pausing. I was wearing therapeutic flat shoes to work every day, and everything seemed to wear me out physically...

It's a testament to my inner core strength, which you CAN'T see on the scale and you CAN'T see in your clothes fittings. It's about the strength that I've gained since I've started a consistent program (yes, full of ups and downs) that does MORE than help you "lose weight"!!! I'm THRILLED!!!!!

What are some of the "little things" you've noticed since you've started SparkLing?

    This is awesome!! My "little" thing is walking without my legs going numb. Not really little to me, I think it's amazing!

    Thanks for this blog, I really needed the encouragement tonight!
