Hello my fellow Sparkers -
I will have been on sparks for 11 Years on the 13th of January. I can not say I have not succeeded .. I am still here. LOL.. I work at me by walking ... and trying to eat as healthy as possible.
I still have not gotten to my goal weight. Why? It is not because Sparks isn't a great help -- the site the coaches the people the articles --all helpful.
It is because I have lacked the one thing we all need to make this journey successful. It is the fire within that YOU want to do this for you. That is me..
It has all not been wasted time. I have learned how to eat healthy how to exercise .. I have learned what I need to do to be healthy and lose weight ..
Now I have lost 10 lbs. and kept that off. I have also made many friends and have even met up with some of them .. so special.
What do I do now ? Well I have not changed my goal or lowered my expectations.. I still believe I can get down to a size I will be comfortable with ..
I am going to commit myself to do this for me and only me.
This is what I want for me ..
My hip to waist ratio is high --in the danger zone so this will be what I focus on now.
I will read up on this and do what it takes to get this number lowered, so I know I will also achieve a smaller me ..
I know turning 65 this year is my fire in my belly to do it!
No longer might, it is I will do this .. for me..
I am blogging everyday so please take the time to read my blogs and help me or nudge me need be.

Hope you all will follow along with me
thank you all for being Sparkers !

    Be patient. Impatience is only a manifestation of living in the future. However, when you are living in the moment, you create your future. Karen Downing.
