Never Give Up...

I have been a part of Spark since August 2008! I have reached my goal original goal of 182 lbs. I've made many positive changes in my life in the time spent here. I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what ...
I have been a part of Spark since August 2008! I have reached my goal original goal of 182 lbs. I've made many positive changes in my life in the time spent here. I made many wonderful Spark Friends, some of whom I have had the pleasure to meet in person. Without them and Spark I would have thrown in the proverbial towel and just quit trying to do more to lose weight, to do more to learn about nutrition, to do more to better myself physically and mentally, to better understand the why and what of my eating disorder (mindless) to better coup with it.
It is up to me to "Make It Happen" if I don't who will...no one! Always back to those initial small steps to make changes for the better. To battle mindless eating every single day is an ongoing challenge.

I found Sparkpeople by accident too when googling a good diet plan. So glad I found it!

Hi Jo Ann! Excited to be on the Navy Ninjas with you. Looking forward to a great round!

I, too, was a former teacher but I was high school business instead.I gave that up and now am a trainer instead.

Well???? How's the icecream count going. I'm checking up on you you know.
I'm glad we're both Ninjas. I notice that the blc26 team isn't on your spark page. I had the same problem so I asked a question in the chats, and besides learning how to add it to my page, I learned how to properly ask a question. emoticon
I will get the hang of this. Lots of details so I am sure the first few days will be a steep learning curve.
It really does motivate me to be accountable though.
Have a great day!
