I am so often inspired buy other sparkers stories I thought I should put some of my ugly truths out there.

I had a strange childhood raised by a con man, drug dealer construction worker step dad. Mom finally got rid of him when I was about 15.

I was pregnant and married by the time I was 17. Just about the time I realized I was being abused my mother had just married and moved to Alaska. It happened so gradually. We were married a year before we had our first real fight. It got progessively worse until I was liveing a nightmare.

It took me 13 years to free myself. By that time I was about 220 lbs.

Became a man hater for a few years after that but now realize he was the exception not the rule. And that I will never tolerate such behaviour again.

I lost about 40 lbs 4 0r 5 years ago when I lived alone for the first time in my life. I cut out soda and quit bringing any snacks in my house. 40 lbs and then got stuck.

Fast forward to SP and here we are. Not only do I think I can lose the weight once and for all I feel stronger, stand straighter and have more energy than I would have believed.

Those are some but certainly not all of my demons.

I am not where I need to be, but thank God I am not where I used
to be. - Joyce Myers

    Hi,Beloved! I hope you are well. I was out of the country all of last week; that's the only reason you have not heard from me,however,you & my entire Spark Family were in my prayers. I had a wonderful time touring Amsterdam& Rotterdam. Unfortunately I didn't have access to a gym & couldn't work out as I planned to,& I couldn't do my calorie count,so I put on a few pounds that I am now losing daily. I walked alot & drank quite a bit of water every day,so that helped keep the weight gain to a minimum 6 lbs. Now that I am home,I'll rest &work out. I'm still tired from all of last week's activities. But I thought I would check in with you to let you know your in my Heart. have a blessed day! Connie
