Today would have been my Dad's 87th birthday,but due to smoking and cancer I lost him 21 years ago Sept. I miss his quick smile and loving heart.He was a family man and strong Christian that loved his wife and kids so.
I also lost my Mom 11 years ago April due to second hand smoke related cancer. Because of the cancer history I worked on keeping a fairly health style except for weight. I have yo yo's dieted for many years. In June of 2004 I weighted my heaviest of 189.5. So in Jan of 2007 I joined Sparks and started working on the weight issue. But only in the last year did I change my way of thinking. I am no longer "on a diet", I am on a healthy way of eating and getting exercise. Jan 1 2013 I weighted 183.4 and on Sat Jan 25th 2014 I weighted 155.3 total lose so far of 28.1 lbs.
Today is also my last day being 59 years old, tomorrow will be the big 60. But that is just a number I am still a kid at heart and love life!!!!
With Sparks help I plan on continuing my journey to the best me possible. I am planning a color walk run this year and a 5 K walk run.
Life here I come!!
