The LOVELY LIMES BLC TEAM FAMILY
my SERIOUS SISTERS
& SPARKPEOPLE are saving my life.

My journey with SparkPeople began in May 2009 when I weighed somewhere around (more than but the scale didn't go that high) 475 pounds. Thanks to water aerobics & swimming, I am healthier today than I have been in years. I not only participate but I teach WA & swim classes daily. Exercise in the water is the BEST way for me to lose weight & stay healthy without too much pain.

One day at a time, my life is changing for the better. I am blessed to be a part of a few awesome team families. The support & encouragement that I find on these teams is wonderful. I am PASSIONATE about leading the LOVELY LIMES BLC team famiy.
I am also involved in an awesome private Spark Team that helps me with my program. The team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends It is a "friendship" team that provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

GO LOVELY LIMES!

    Thank you so much for the goodie. I hear you when you say you are not where you had hoped to be at this time in your life. Neither am I but like you, a whole lot better than when I began. We will keep going at a pace of on day at a time and the goals we have set will be one day closer than they were. Thank you for being a SP friend!!

    Came in to see what is going on in your life, Dawn, & realizing that you are dealing with a cough had me immediately lift prayer on your behalf. I can only imagine how frustrating & annoying such a condition is...especially when it keeps you from the water. emoticon

    God bless!
