Treasure every success no matter how small!

Hi!! I'm Kim. Just a little note that hopefully lets you know that you are not alone. That you can do this. That time and determination do pay off.

It has been a long journey to reach my most recent successes but, I can honestly say the journey is worth every step! It wasn't always easy. In fact I have had many set backs.

Hi!! I'm Kim. Just a little note that hopefully lets you know that you are not alone. That you can do this. That time and determination do pay off.

It has been a long journey to reach my most recent successes but, I can honestly say the journey is worth every step! It wasn't always easy. In fact I have had many set backs.

I quit smoking for 8 months and started again. I lost weight, regained it, became borderline diabetic. I began to have High Blood pressure and struggled with High Cholesterol. But, I never gave up!

Now the blood sugar is well within normal and my blood pressure is very good. I had to have a stress test and the Cardiologist asked if I work out! What? How could he know?

Through all of the ups and downs I was determined to manage my health, take charge of my choices, and not become dependent upon more medication. It worked!

And now almost 6 months later it is still working...

Time, patience, and persistence will get you where you wish to be. If you slip, indulge, etc. it is okay! Allow yourself small splurges and than get back on track. Eventually you will experience HUGE rewards!

Thanks for the goodie. It was so good to hear from you. I haven't been good about touching base with sparkfriends lately. I'll try to do better.

Hi Bebe, so glad to hear from you! I was just thinking about you recently, including today!! I hope you will be on sp for a long while once again. I think you are very lovely and also very encouraging. Let's keep in close contact with each other and help each other in our weight loss battle. Hope your day is a good one. emoticon

Just checking to see how your year is going. We have experienced an earthquake, hurricane (delayed school opening three days), and now we have had so much rain and flooding, that it has been delayed two more days...

I hope things are well with you! I'm trying to exercise (of some sort) every day and eat healthier. It's definitely a mindset change for me. Take Care and drop me a line when you can.

The will power to navigate a world of fried, sugary, fatty, salty temptations.
The peace of mind to not stress about the numbers on a scale.
And the Common Sense to chose food for fuel and accept myself as I am."
