Thank you for sharing your accomplishments. This was just something I needed to hear. Losing weight is such a struggle sometimes and it's good to hear the success stories to keep people like myself encouraged. Keep up the good work.

What a wonderful story to read this morning, Thank You for sharing with us. And congrats on you success. You are an Inspiration to us all.

11/6/08 3:52 A

Wow, congratulations is easy to say, but I'm sure you had to to do a lot of self-talk & sacrifices along the way. Rightfully you should feel happy & celebrate. I'm a newbie here, and I must say it is one more thing I'm trying out and can't help going into this feeling a bit skeptical but I will give it an honest shot, thanks for the inspiration!

The main ambition I have is to be as healthy as possible. I have two replacement knees which have greatly improved the quality of my life. Now I am in a walking group. We have done a few marathon walks for charity and I feel so pleased to be able to take part in such activities.

Keeping my weight in check is not easy as I am, like many Scots, really fond of sweet foods, like chocolate. My love of fruit and veg. helps.

I am 61 years of age and feel better now than I did ten years ago!

Good wishes to all in their efforts to lose weight and be healthy.

There are many days I feel like doing is one of them. Of course, I have already walked three miles and biked six, ate breakfast, showered and just got home from services with my Lord. Now I would just like to relax a moment. However, I just received my 30,000 spark points and need to celebrate. With 80 pounds lost, a new wardrobe, and 30,000 spark points, I just feel the need to continue spreading the spark!!! Maybe I can help someone else on their journey to success.
Without the help of Spark People, the encouragement and support I have received from my spark friends and family, my DD, and my McKenzie, I would probably still be a couch and computer potato; getting more unhealthy by the minute. However, I now have my blood sugar under control, been taken off several medications, my cholesterol is way down, I am riding a bicycle (something I haven't done in 45 years)and walking several miles a day. I was told several years ago that I would never walk again. Foolish doctors!!! McKenzie has even had me jumping on her trampoline...scared witless because of issues with heights, but I accomplished it and was proud of myself. I have so much to be thankful for these days, praise God!!! and I just had to share.
I have received so many blessings they are too numerous to mention, but I remember each of them...I am counting my spark family and friends among my blessings...each one is such a treasure to me!!!
Thank you Spark People for being here for me as I continue my journey to better health. I am still heading for goal...little setbacks will not stop me. Every positive is a very small step at a time, one meal at a time, one minute, one hour, one day at a time. They all add up!!
God bless each of our spark members and may you be a huge success!!!
