Welcome to my Spark Page!
Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so.
I am Nora (not my real name) my spark buddies gave me that name and I have grown to love it. I am tired of being fluffy (my church sisters
don't say fat) and unhealthy. I have been battling with my weight for six looooong years.....that is how it seems. I would lose the weight and gain it all back. Three years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes then my BP went sky high and my thing after another, not forgetting menopause. Negative thoughts started to creep in and I began to judge and condemn myself. When I looked into the mirror I was seeing a body I didn't recognise. I panic! A person always in I was slipping, losing control and hating myself
I sought help but all I received was discouragement, I was a failure!!
FAILURE- NO - it is just a temporary set back, a delay, it is not DEFEAT
not a dead end. It was then I became determined to get this under control before it killed me. I didn't know how I was going to achieve this but I certainly know that there is a way to achieve anything I set my mind to. If I don't find a way...I'll create it. I wanted to live and maintain this sacred body God gave to me. I prayed! Then i found S/P Site by accident. Boy! Am I glad I stopped to investigate this wonderful site. Never thought I would be a part f something like this. I thought...Life doesn't provide warranties and guarantees. It just provides, opportunities and possibilities. Grab it! You won't lose anything. it's free! Prayers answered!! Yes. The Lord didn't only give me what I asked for but also the opportunity of meeting people who were of like mind and situations and there is also a Christian Team. Great!
Here I found a place to maintain consistent vigil for new and powerful ways to change the shape of my body while promoting life long health
and wellness.
Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today!!!

    Hope you enjoy the following Poem... emoticon

    Friendship Duet

    We meet new people every day;
    Why we like some, who can say?
    Maybe it's because they think like us;
    It might be because they seldom fuss.

    It's hard to know why closeness grows;
    We like some better; that's how it goes.
    I think you're special; I’m glad we met;
    Let's keep having fun in our friendship duet.
