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 145-149 during Fall/Winter as my fluctuating wt... Spring/Summer I plan to maintain a 135-140 flux....

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...

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

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~"A SMILE"~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

~~~~~ emoticon ~~~Patience~~~ emoticon ~~~~~
Let's be realistic. You won't drop two jean sizes in a day.
You won't lose 50 lbs. in one month.
You're going to binge every now and then.
You will go a day or two without working out.
Your weight is going to fluctuate here and there.
You're going to try new techniques, and they're aren't going to work.
You're a human being. You're going to fail.
But nothing great is accomplished without a few obstacles.
So, when you come to those obstacles,
tell yourself "I CAN DO IT," and JUST KEEP GOING!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon You CAN conquer the obstacles emoticon

It's a beautiful day here in MN..doing lots of biking, walking!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
