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!

    Dawn it is so amazing how the Keto program is working for me. I have struggled so bad with cravings and it always sabotaged my journey. I would fall to it but I don’t have any of those cravings anymore. Thank you for your support.

    Today I am doing some lovely guided meditation MBSR= Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction! And I love it!

    I am also doing the 21 Guided Meditation Challenge put on by Oprah and Deepak Chopra... It is very relaxing... It's Called Shedding the Weight- Not just in the body- but of the mind too... It is an eye-opener! I can't let past experiences weigh me down anymore. the past is the past- I control my present and future... I can write about and try to understand WHY I am effected by past circumstances, events, situations , let downs, etc... But They hold no power over my present situation- and if they do- it's time to take back the reigns... A LITTLE Confidence along with persistence! Right?
