I am so often inspired buy other sparkers stories I thought I should put some of my ugly truths out there.

I had a strange childhood raised by a con man, drug dealer construction worker step dad. Mom finally got rid of him when I was about 15.

I was pregnant and married by the time I was 17. Just about the time I realized I was being abused my mother had just married and moved to Alaska. It happened so gradually. We were married a year before we had our first real fight. It got progessively worse until I was liveing a nightmare.

It took me 13 years to free myself. By that time I was about 220 lbs.

Became a man hater for a few years after that but now realize he was the exception not the rule. And that I will never tolerate such behaviour again.

I lost about 40 lbs 4 0r 5 years ago when I lived alone for the first time in my life. I cut out soda and quit bringing any snacks in my house. 40 lbs and then got stuck.

Fast forward to SP and here we are. Not only do I think I can lose the weight once and for all I feel stronger, stand straighter and have more energy than I would have believed.

Those are some but certainly not all of my demons.

I am not where I need to be, but thank God I am not where I used
to be. - Joyce Myers

    So what's up mama? I have been less than consistent on my sparking and therefore my monitoring of food etc. This has been the most brutal end of year ever and I've just been mentally, emotionally, and physically exhausted!!!
    Must....get....back...on ...track.......( said with emphasis like Superman speaking against the powers of Cryptonite!) lol
    Congrats on your awesome consistency and success! WooHoo
    Touchin' base...tag you're it!
