Wow I just reread my page here and what I want to do.
I have been on Sparks for 8 years -before my grandson was born..
I still have not gotten to my goal weight. Why? It is not because Sparks isn't a great help -- the site the coaches the people --all helpful.
It is because I have lacked the one thing we all need to make this journey successful. It is the fire within that YOU want to do this for you. That is me..
It has all not been wasted time. I have learned how to eat healthy how to exercise .. I have learned what I need to do to be healthy and lose weight ..
Now I have lost 10 lbs. and kept that off. I have also made many friends and even got to meet up with some of them .. so special.
What do I do now ? Well I have not changed my goal or lowered my expectations.. I still believe and can get down to a size I will be comfortable with ..
I am going to commit myself to do this for me and only me.
This is what I want -no one else ..
My hip to waist ratio is high --in the danger zone so this will be what I focus on now.
I will read up on this and do what it takes to get this number lowered, so I know I will also achieve a smaller me ..

Hope you all will follow along with me and give me a nudge if need be ..
thank you all for being Sparkers !

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? 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 December. 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 the Fall we had Cardio Hoedown, World Series and Sleepathon. I hope that you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter 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.
