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.

I leave you with a special Easter Poem, hope you enjoy!

Easter Love

On Easter we celebrate love,
love coming down from heaven,
love blanketing the earth
in a transforming embrace;
unique and infinite love,
giving more than we can imagine
for us, to cleanse our sin,
a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
the walking, talking Word.
He is teacher, role model, friend,
this God in human form,
dying, then rising from the dead,
proving all who believe
will also rise
to have eternal life, with Him,
Lord of all.
Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

Dropping by to say hi and wish you a great weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for your support on my blogs, your friendship is appreciated...Hope you enjoy the following poem.. emoticon

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.

Helen Steiner Rice
