Hi I am Cathe, so nice to met you! Thanks for visiting my page. I joined Sparkspeople to lose weight and for support. Little did I know that Sparkspeople was going to teach me how to be a better me. Sparkspeople has taught me to love myself again.. It has taught me that it's okay if you make a mistake. I have changed so much this past year. Here is how my journey started and what I have learned.

Hi I am Cathe, so nice to met you! Thanks for visiting my page. I joined Sparkspeople to lose weight and for support. Little did I know that Sparkspeople was going to teach me how to be a better me. Sparkspeople has taught me to love myself again.. It has taught me that it's okay if you make a mistake. I have changed so much this past year. Here is how my journey started and what I have learned.
****************************************

* I joined Sparkspeople 1-27-2013

* I joined TOPS so I would be accountable for my weigh in's. 2-6-2013

*when I started my journey. I could not walk more then 5-10 minutes. As of today I am able to walk for 60 minutes.

*At work the break room is upstairs. By the time I got to the top of the stairs I was breathless. Now I find reasons to take the stairs and usually get in 4-5 trips a day.

*I lived on Pepsi...now I drink at least nine 8oz glasses of water daily.

*If I was not working I was sleeping. ....now I have a daily routine. This routine includes daily prayers, exercise and 7-8 of sleep.

*I ate nothing but fast food and junk....now I enjoy cooking healthy meals, planning my meals out and trying new recipes.

*I have now made my way to the onederland neighborhood. I will never see the 200 pound number again.

*I was a very depressed person not really caring if I lived or died. Now I am happy, healthier, stronger, person. I have more energy, more confidence. I am enjoying life.

*I have learned for every negative there is a positive to replace that negative, you just have to open your eyes and look for it.

I thank God daily for holding my hand and showing me the way. Now I can say I am proud of myself. I feel very Blessed to have all my Spark buddies and can not say Thank You to Sparkguy Chris enough for helping me with the process of changing my life around. It's all about lifestyle and I am loving mine.

Morning emoticon Cathe

Thank you for all your prayers this past several days while I was away during my surgery and recovery time. I appreciate your friendship and kindness expressed and your faithful support!

God Bless you my Friend...Hope you enjoy the following poem!

The Gift Of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold -
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It can neither see nor hear,
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand,
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand -
So when you ask God for a Gift,
Be thankful if He sends
Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
But the love of real true friends.

This Halloween there's something new.
A sweet surprise that's called a "Boo".
A friendly "goblin" left it here
To spread a little "ghostly" cheer.
It's not a fright; it's not a scare, it's just a secret smile to share.
To get you in the Halloween mood, you've officially now been "boo'd".
It's your turn, now you're the one to pass along some "spooky" fun,
To friends who'd love a special "treat",
And let them know you think they're sweet!
'Cause it's for sure this little gift will give their "spirits" quite a lift.
Enjoy this latest, greatest way to celebrate this "ghoulish" holiday.
