emoticon CC (what is your name?). Yours is an exciting story, both for you and your husband. Read about Raul's successful weight loss in the post on the team's homepage in the first forum. And, Cat said it well, bowling is for everyone -- even blind bowlers, wheelchair bowlers, seniors who just stand at the foul line and roll the ball from there, kids, those needing to use a ramp (where the ramp is placed at the foul line with the ball on top then pushed down the ramp onto the lane), and others. It should help your husband's recovery tremendously.

Joining the league is a good way to enjoy camaraderie while having a night out with hubby and getting exercise at the same time. Don't forget to enter your bowling in your fitness tracker. Browse for bowling then mark it as one of your favorites.

Let us know your practice and league scores and any questions you have about bowling or weight loss and we'll do our best to help you along the way. -- Lou

Hello! I've been Sparking since October 1, 2011. I'm in my 10th month now, and have had a lifestyle change. I am slowly losing weight, and am making strides in my fitness level.
I had bowled about 4 times in my life before July 7, 2012. It was about 20 years since the last time I bowled. My DH's dad was an avid bowler and travelled the country playing in tournaments. My husband didn't go often with his dad, but he was a good bowler, too. Bowling has not entered my mind since 1995 when my FIL died. To cut my story short, my DH has had several strokes. We are just starting to get therapy for him. I was reading my church bulletin three weeks ago, and it mentioned a bowling league would be starting in September. The idea struck me that perhaps DH would like to try it, as it would get us out of the house. I mentioned it to him on that Sunday night. On the next Saturday we went to check out the lanes. We bowled 2 games. DH was so frustrated I thought he'd have another stroke! I could barly walk afterward. WOW! Has bowling changed since we'd been in an alley! All computerized, and there is no "slide" to the foul line either! No keeping score!
BUT! We enjoyed it! So, next day we went again. Played 3 games. I thought I would die! Yet, DH had improved. He was still frustrated, but I told him to consider how the lanes had changed, and he had reflex/ reaction time limitations. I told him to think and adapt. It would come back if he did. We have bowled every other day, and Saturday and Sunday since then.
Today I bowled a 126. He had a 149. I am now consistently making it to 100 pins a game. DH, of course, has had phenomenal improvement! 130 or higher now. His focus and concentration are 100% improved in all areas, not just in bowling. I guess we have bowled 34 games up to today. I am hooked!!!
So, here I am! A klutz with a bowling addiction! LOL!
Sorry, my story wasn't too short after all!

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
