Home & happy to be getting back into my world! 20 Months with SP!

Friday, November 15, 2013

WOW! The changes I have gone through these past 20 months, are amazing! I am just SO happy! Spark People changed my life, my world & many around me, because I inspire my family & friends AND that feels wonderful!

My arm injury in Sept. helped me realize I need to slow don a little bit. I gained 6 above my goal weight, but now I am getting back to it! Already down 2# from then. My arm is almost completely well, just being careful lifting things! This injury showed me I was eating & working off the cals with exercise. I am able to maintain with all the exercise. BUT I need to remember to "BE REAL" with food & exercise. I didn't go over my tracker calories, but not being as active had a toll on my weight. Learning to maintain is REALLY hard for me! But SO worth it!

My friend N*, fell & broke her right arm, as some of you know. I went to help her & she is doing GREAT! She said I have inspired her to contuine her yoga & start walking. I kept up with what works for me, and being around her, she saw how healthy I eat. She has always eaten VERY healthy. Breaking an arm, doesn't make it easier, but we both learned how to use our left hands. She is also continuing with writing with her left hand, also. We feel if we can already do things that way, to keep it up & be more balanced!

My sweetheart is doing well, it was a little bit hard for him while I was gone. He is still healing from back surgery. But better!

So I am off to my world & all the fun things I love to do. Working & playing... a zumba party tonight! LUCY walk, weather is lovely!


LOVELY! Happy dancing!!! Let's go out AND create our lives like we dream of it being! You can do this, we all can help each other!

Sparkling day to all of you, reading!

Here are 2 photos from our walk at the Hunginton Library! Nov. 7

    Congratulations on 20 months with spark. I am having a hard time with maintenance too. It is a challenge and more of a roller coaster than weight loss was. emoticon

    Couldn't agree with you more about this place - it is the turbo boost that we all need to get to where we are going.

    Welcome back home you wonderful friend! It's great that you were helpful and inspiring for your friend. While it's nice to get away -- it's also always nice to come home --- there's no place like home!

Congratulations on all your progress! YOU GO GIRL!!!

    You are so sparkling and so right! You look great in the photos and congrats on your 20 months here. This is the best journey I have ever been on and even while on vacation, I planned what and how much I wanted to eat. Not to mention getting in all the steps that I did while being a tourist and walking everywhere! SP is so much more than just an internet site, the people here become your friends and part of your family and I know I miss them when I am not able to get on and spark!
Keep up the great work and the positive attitude, it is paying off big time!
Have a great weekend!
