i have a request: yesterday i came across on my Spark people website, an article that popped up for Raising funds for breast cancer. i clicked on it and joined.. I am sending u all the link to help me raise money for Breast/Cancer awareness.

2 weeks ago i was diagnosed with breast Cancer. As we speak, i am going thru what needs to be done to fight this disease. i am asking each and everyone to participate and help me in the fight for my life. Its all free.

all you have to do is join and log in your minutes of walking/jogging daily..Bumble Bee donates 15 cents for every mile walked or jogged to B/C research. i figured we all walk anyway so we can log in at least an hour or 2 walked daily. Please join. its free totally free. it cost only a minute of your time. lets make a difference. Thanks in advance for your participation. Luisa

Okay, posting here so I can gear up for May.
I am doing yoga tonight 1hr-did 2 mile run/3.75mile walk yesterday. My goal for May is to plan and execute. Sometimes I don't plan and other times I don't execute. May is the month to combine the two.

I am sooo in! I need to lose so much more - but to lose 10 pounds in may would be such an incentive for the remaining weight that has to go! Let's Do This!!!

how we do it is by posting. for example ill try something and if it works or not i share it and u can try it may work for u and it may not..there is not site or anything this is all trial and error. everything doesn't work for its up to the individual to come in post daily and share..i hope this helps. thanks for the question. im sure alot of ppl have the same one.
