Memorial Day Weekend 2007 I had a stroke at age 44.

August 1, 2007, I joined SparkPeople. I didn't like the cholesterol medicine or blood pressure medicine they put me on, so I began to make lifestyle changes.

May 1, 2008 - I've lost 25 pounds and decided to challenge folks from my church to do Sycamore Tree Church Biggest Loser to lose the last 18 pounds in 18 weeks.

May 9, 2008 - Dr. took me OFF Blood Pressure Meds and cut cholesterol medicine to 5 mg/day!!!

August 31, 2008 - Someone else won, but I inspired 12 other people to join "the Biggest Loser" and three of those people lost almost 10% of their total weight in the last 18 weeks AND my weight is heading down! Slower than I'd like, but my activity is up, I'm eating more fruits, veggies and complex carbs and the weight is coming down. That's really all that counts!

I will control what I CAN control (eating and exercise) and will NOT WORRY about what I can't control (my weight)

April 24, 2009 - STILL 30# lighter than when I joined SparkPeople in August 2007!

Fall 2009 - I started posting my Healthy Living Bible Study online to share with others - www.squidoo.com/biblehealth

October 1, 2010 - I think I'm finally ready to lose this last 25# I feel motivated. So, I challenged some others to join me. (I like company on this journey). I'll let you know how I do!

March 18, 2011 - I am down another 10# - 15 - 20 more and I'll be at my goal!

    I know what you're saying, what more can we do. I keep saying to myself that at least I feel a lot better, but that is only half the goal. Keep reminding myself to "stick with i!"

    Thank you for checking in. Been off the wagon for a while. I'm plugging back in today! I can do all things through He who strengthens me. I know God will never give up on me. So I can't give up on me.

    Thanks for putting your information out there for all to see. I found you doing a Google search looking for a new Bible study for the small group I belong to. That was over the weekend. I'm now spending WAY a lot of time on Spark People and have downloaded your Bible study information for myself. I know the first step is seeing the good in me. God didn't make mistakes... right?! Thanks again.

    Lynn, Your new pictures are amazing! I didn't realize just how much you had lost until you put the pictures side by side. You're amazing!
