Hello! Welcome to my SparkPage! I am a Christian woman who is also a wife, mother, grandmother and teacher. I thank God for my family and friends.

SparkPeople got the ball rolling, and Take Shape for Life/OPTAvia is showing me that I can be successful. (old - I have lost 21 pounds since May 15, 2014. / current - I had lost 45 pounds and gained it back, but I started a week ago again and have lost more than 8 pounds already.) I went down at least one size. I like shopping more now because I can fit into more, and it is more of a reward for me than food now. (old - My next goal...just days away is to break 200! / current - My goal is to eat well this summer, as I know how to do, so that I can get back to where I was and then some...I also want to add some exercise and medical testing.)

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.
