Hi, Clara, nice to meet you!

...I was in a movie trailer that was filmed at the high school in Whidbey Island a few years ago~ and you are right, it's BEAUTIFUL there~ long drive and ferry ride to get there, though LOL. I LOVE Washington state, and live in Lakewood, south of Tacoma, with my DH, Dawson the watcher (12 yr old lab mix), and Licorice and Isis, my two domestic shorthair felines. ("baby pics" in my photogallery on my spark page...) Check out any of the SparkPages on the team, there's a lot of diversity... and a lot of things we share in common.

We all get a wake-up call now and then, and I for one plan on spending as much time as possible enjoying the beauty this life has to offer~ and I'm not the only one, you're in good company here! LOL

Check out the discussion titles by clicking on the team name at the top of this page, and join us anywhere... or if there's a subject you can't find, start a new thread.

Together, anything is possible~ and SparkPeople is a wonderful tool for making things happen!

Welcome to the team~ and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But I don't think you have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too!

Welcome Clara, you've joined the right group for information and support. I visited your sparkpage but couldn't read the black on purple. Nice pics though.

Hi Everyone,
my name is Clara and I live on the beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington state with my husband, our dog Teddibear.
I weigh 298 lbs and I need to lose 138 lbs to get healthy.
Ive tried off and on for the past 8 yrs to lose the weight, Ive been recently diagnosed with prediabetes and I really dont want it to get any worse. Some things have happened this past week that have impressed on me how major it is to my survival that I lose this weight now.


Psalm 34:18
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
