I am thankful for stumbling across sparkpeople.com April, 2009. It was a dark time in my life whe. I was searching for a free way to lose weight. Something Imhave done before with help from WW, Jenny Craig, and other ways. I never reached goal and gave up. I never learned to maintain and never understood the importance of excersie.
Here, at SP, I refreshed what I knew. I learned fitness is a MUST in life. Here I have made life long friends, God willing. I have made BFFs and pray for the day our paths cross.
Here I learned to teach my kids to make better choices, to add fitness to their life, and eat what you like in MODERATION.
I love that I have inspired family, friends, and people when I remind them or show them me at (I am putting it out there for those who do not know) 201lbs, size 18 tight (20/22 nicely), and hated mirrors!!!! Now, I am a size 8-10 comfortably, and 139ish. I eat what I want as long as I remember to work off my extra calories. (something I did not do last Christmas and gained 5lbs....not regrets though I loved every bite I took)
Thank you Chris Downie and aalllllllll of SP
