Heading to the East Coast tomorrow for a little bit of R&R, much needed and much appreciated. I'll be away from the computer for a few days. I'll miss sparking with my team mates, but they will be with me in spirit.

Sparking has helped to change my life and even taking this little jaunt is a reflection of changes in my life; choosing to do good things for me.

I've been sparking nearly 4 months now, I have met and befriended some very generous, supportive and energetic people. I have learned tons about my relationship with food and health. I participated in (and won) a 12-week Biggest Loser challenge in my office; losing 23 lbs, 10% body fat and 14 inches.

I continue to feel good and committed to these changes. This is not about deprivation. I have even learned how to have ice cream in moderation! I am not giving up anything except being unhealthy. I eat the foods that I love, in healthy amounts. Water is my drink of choice and exercise is starting to be something I look forward to. Challenging myself physically feels great and sexy. I'm feeling good in my body and that is reflected in how people are responding to me: friends, family, strangers! This is a pretty cool ride and I look forward to more adventures. I think it's about time for a new picture. I think I'm ready.

...and so it goes

    Well, I can finally comment. God is good. Each time I read something you write in your blogs, I feel a sense of peace and tranquility. Continue to be the you are meant to be. I look forward to the new picture, I don't see it yet, I'll go back and look.
