Hi, IAMAGEMLOVER! Thanks for the welcome. I've joined spark about 6 months ago, and Inygirl was one of the first blogs I've read also. Plus, I live in southern Indiana, so meeting her in person isn't out of the realm. I imagine her to be very zen-like - lol! She always seems so introspective. Anyway, I'm glad to be here. I'm definitely feeling even more motivated, now that I'm part of a team!
Hi. Welcome Jeanne. Beth is a very motivating person. She use to write for the daily spark every now and then. Hers was the first one I ever read and I cried. I received a phone call during it and even the person I was talking to was deeply moved. With all that she has been through she is amazing. I talked to her on the phone and I told her that she was the wind beneath my wings. One of my goals is to meet her in person and give her a hug. I will achieve that goal one day. I have gone from 248 to 131 pounds and I owe a lot of my success to Beth. She wants to be a life coach, she doesn't know that she already is.
I'm joining your team, Indygirl, because your blogs seem to hit me right in the heart, every time. I appreciate your self honesty. I have that myself - although I don't let it out into the light all that often. I've lost about 15 pounds (haven't weighed lately) since starting sparkpeople, and I have to say that a lot of it is because of your blogs. I'll be shopping at the store, or staring in my refrigerator, and something you'd said, some turn of phrase, pops into my mind. I find myself picking out celery, instead of cheese and crackers, or nachos, or whatever. At a restaurant, I find it easier to push the plate away when I'm comfortably full, rather than finishing it all (and I quit with carry out boxes, mostly). So, thanks for that, and thanks for inviting me to your team!
