~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~ * ~ ~
~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 am still Adjusting to my new weight & HEALthy LIFE-STYLE)

This past Holiday season ... Dec. 18 ... I had emergency surgery ...
apparently... even withOut a gallbladder... I can still produce stones.... So... I have to figure out a new Healthy Daily Diet...
in so doing I gained a few lbs back... I will be making the adjustments Necessary, in the hopes of Not producing stones...
I am confident I will find a healthy diet... along with getting back to my goal weight..... Then... Jan. 2016 I slipped on Ice and seriously broke my shoulder in 2 places

Continuing in Maintenance mode along with making all the necessary changes in my life to maintain this new weight and lifestyle... Lots of Adjustments to make...

Learning how to remove Excess from my Life...
so that I may enJOY the reNEWed ME !!!

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...

~*~ BLESSings ~*~ ALLways ~*~ Deby

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~BEING STRONG~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Being strong doesn’t mean you can’t express what you feel…
    it doesn’t mean you can’t cry when you really want to scream…
    it doesn’t mean you have to be strong all the time…..

    Being strong means that you can smile even when you’ve been crying…
    it means being yourself as GOD has made you….
    it means growing stronger then what we were yesterday…

    BEING STRONG MEANS NEVER GIVE UP,
    SHOW THE WORLD THE REAL YOU,
    AND BE THE ONE WHO CAN SEE EYE TO EYE
    WITH EVERY HURDLE THAT COMES YOUR WAY….
