I lost about 35 pounds with this website, then I failed myself by not following through. I am not as heavy as I had been, but I have gained much of it back. My new goal is where I was Memorial day 2011 or June 2015 when we took our daughter to Mexico for her graduation trip. I need to learn to balance my time on sparkpeople so that it is not always all or nothing. I KNOW there is a great spot in between that I need to find.
I have learned so much here but these are the top two.
1. Have a clear goal & you CAN achieve it.
2. Do not do it alone, there are so many people here who will help you.
Dive in & make use of all these wonderful FREE tools & get your life headed in the direction you want to be.

    Hi, I was just reading some tips that were posted on my Camping SP'ers team. You wrote the one about the marshmallow guns your hubby made. Is there any way you could write the pattern out. I'd love my DH to make them for our family. I know the Grand Kids would love them. I'd really appreciate it !
    Love ya', Flutterfli emoticon emoticon

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. 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 Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, 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 Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    just a quick note to answer your question...where we live at 6500 elevation, our average temps are 75 everyday and no humidity...so we are very lucky. national geo mag rated our weather second best in the world. that is why we love living here.
    have a great week end.
