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!!!

    The Power of Friends

    Everyone knows of the power of friends,
    The terrific result, when everything blends.
    When people have friends, they don’t stand alone;
    Friends always help, when you face the unknown.

    Friends give you courage to face problems untold,
    So the love of a friend can help make you bold.
    They can help you to live a much richer life,
    So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

    Thanks for being my friend!
