Here's to good friends

Thursday, December 31, 2009




To all the friends here on Spark, you make my day! It doesn't matter how I am feeling, you are there. With help, hope, and sometimes a swift kick. I have had a good year and a bad. Lost some people who I have loved my whole life, and met a goal of going below 200. The good and the bad, we all have to deal with it. Thru it all, have been my Spark family. You listen when no one else hears, are here with a click of the mouse, and you give the best advice.

A team I am on is starting a challenge for the new year. It is MARLAS' MIRACLE AND IS SET UP TO HELP OUR DEAR FRIEND LOSE WEIGHT SO SHE CAN HAVE A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT. She didn't ask us to do this. We are doing it because she means so much to all of us and we want her to live long. In the process , we will also help ourselves ,so it is a win win situation. There will be no try this time. We will do this! I heard someone say yesterday that to say you are going to TRY and lose weight, is already setting yourself up to fail. I don't know if that is true, but there will be no try , just DO!

So for the last day of the year 2009, I wish you all health, happiness, and the chance to take up a little less of your zipcode! Have a great year. You are all the most amazing friends.

    Hey how goes it? I am in Geneva, Switzerland with my daughter and we are walking everywhere and I can walk everywhere and I am so grateful. We are watching the Biggest Loser tapes and laughing and my daughter is such an inspiration to me....she is GOLD!
    As I continue to remember that this isn't not about food or diet or even outsides but about choices, fitness and trust that we can heal our body of the way I used food....I just see the love and magic happening.

    I am learning to be happy regardless of the scale and because I can. It so helps to have Spark friends and especially when they are also your DAUGHTER! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Life offers up some mighty hard things to deal with and 2009 brought some of the hardest yet for both of us but look at us we survived and are getting ready to do one more year of challenges all over again....together as it should be!! emoticon

    Deuce - I cannot imagine life without all of you in it! Your sense of humor is amazing! Your RAVING REPORTER "gig" is hilarious! I miss that! LOL
    To think you all care enough to help me get this weight off so I can get on the transplant list! I'm almost speechless..... It simply amazes me!
    Deuce, your kindness, your laughter, your pranks.. yes, I said PRANKS! They all add up to you.... just a bundle of JOY and LOVE! That's our Deucie!

    Thanks for helping get Marla's Miracle going. This means more to me than words can ever express.

    Love You, Marla
