may God bless your positive efforts. Patience trough the Spark and you will be amazed at the multitude of support and function.
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
glad you are joining us on this journey to a healthy lifestyle. When we have a lot of lose, it sometimes becomes difficult to stay motivate. That when your friends from Sparks help! They help you and you help them. There are days when the scales don't move down, they move up. Just stay connected and you will lose. I have gone from a 3X to a 1X. It does work, it just takes time, we are on a journey not in a race.

, you'll get the hang of it. Any answers will show up on this venue and pay attention to the orange drop down menus near the top which say my trackers, articles and videos and community.
