Hey guys, I'm new to the team, but I gotta tell you guys that have never been to the spa, you need to go! It's great.
My favorite spa is Burke Williams. It's a chain, but a really good one. I have been to several day spas, and BW is the only one I've been to with full spa facilities: showers, sauna, big jacuzzi, steam room. They have wet rooms for treatments that involve water, and tub rooms where you can relax with one of their signature baths. There is also a nice quiet room and a co-ed room with a big fireplace and beverages and snacks where you can sit with your mate or your friends and talk, etc.
Just talking about it makes me want to book an appointment! But I only go once or twice a year, LOL.
I have the best, best friend. She lives in Centreville, VA. For spring break, I went to visit her and my godchildren. My birthday was two weeks before. So one morning she woke me up and said she had a MD appointment and she needed me to go with her. Well on the way there, she pulled into this shopping plaza and said, "Ok, I lied to you, I do have a MD appointment, but you’re not going with me." She pulled in front of this spa, told me to get out and everything was paid for. This was my b-day present.
It was heavenly. My first spa experience was at 29 y/o, but it was worth the wait. I got a full body massage, it was great. Thank God for friends who aren't in school and have money. LOL. She doesn't realize how much it meant to me, but it was a whole new experience.
Once I hit my goal weight, a full spa treatment will be one of my rewards.

Making the absolute best of ourselves is not an easy task. It is a pleasurable pursuit...but it requires patience, persistence, and perseverance" - Sarah Ban Breathnach
Romans 10: 9,10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS and shalt believe in thine heart that GOD hast raised HIM from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart, man believeth unto righteousness and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.
