~Hello~My name is Deby... ~Thanks for stopping by my page~..... I am 58 years young... I finally reached my goal weight of 140s. I reached it Sept. 2014... This has been a very long journey. I started Sept. 24, 2008 at my highest weight ever 225+ lbs... Finishing Sept. 2014 @ 145-150..
~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~
I put back on over 15 lb. I am now working on getting back to my goal... and then to Maintenance Mode. I would love to maintain 145-155 lbs.

~I have a wonderful husband and 3 AWEsome adult Sons who now have families of their own.~

I was on Sparkpeople a few years ago... Started in Feb. 2009... weighed in at 195 lbs... after loosing over 25=30 lbs on my own (225+ lbs Aug. 2008) my last Sparkpeople experience lasted over a year... ending with me weighing in @ 175+ lbs... I rejoined weighing in @ 167 lbs... Over the holidays 2013, I regained 10 lbs... (175) Since March 17, 2014 I lost 30 lbs, on my version of the Atkins diet... which made me reach my first goal of 146 lbs... I learned alot on Atkins about sugars/carbs... this is definitely gonna help with the maintenance part of my new HEALthy LIFEstyle. After reaching 140, I feel like this is my healthy weight... I am working at maintaining 145-155

I have been Back SPARKling Since August 2013... I am soooo thankful for all the Support I have received here @ SPARKpeople... ~THANK YOU~

I practice the "ART of BLESSings"
Basically... its wishing WELL to all you meet...

Years ago... driving home from shopping. In front of me, a car pulled out in front of another car and almost hit each other.... It was as if time stood still for a moment... I could see all the negative energy being passed back and forth... flipping off, yelling at each other.,... It really upset me... when I got home I prayed and meditated over it... I thought... wow... Are we really sending out all that negative energy around the world... NO WONDER everything is such a mess... then... I thought wow... what can I do to bring a balance of the positive & negative...
then it hit me.... I could BLESS (wish from the heart... everyone all the best) ... this is why... I have chosen to practice the ~ART~of~BLESSing~

~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~

Wishing Everyone the Very Best on their personal journey...

    The truth is.. we hide because we want to be found.
    We walk away to see who will follow.
    We cry to see who will wipe away the tears,
    and we let our hearts get broken to see who will come and fix them.

    I live by this credo:
    Have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness.
    Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.
    Even in your darkest moment, you usually can find something
    to laugh about if you try hard enough.
    ~ Red Skelton ~

    Always remember that in 'Life', whatever we do,
    we are never defeated, unless....we 'give up.'

    When you feel like 'giving up', remember why you
    held on for so long in the first place.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up,
    show up, and never 'give up'
