GO LOVELY LIMES! The most awesome BLC Team!!!

On my 50th birthday I weighed 460+ & was in a wheel chair because I couldn't support my own body. After my doctor said "LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE", I joined SparkPeople in May 2009 & started water aerobics in earnest. It's been an up & down battle. The scale is not my friend.

On my 50th birthday I weighed 460+ & was in a wheel chair because I couldn't support my own body. After my doctor said "LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE", I joined SparkPeople in May 2009 & started water aerobics in earnest. It's been an up & down battle. The scale is not my friend. It's so hard to lose 5 pounds and so easy to GAIN 40. It's been a great 6 years. I still have a LONG way to go but am down well over 150 pounds & teach water aerobics & swim lessons at the Ypool that has saved my life! All I can say is NEVER GIVE UP!

Thanks to my SERIOUS SISTERS & some awesome SparkTeam Families, I am working my "weigh down" the scale. TOGETHER we can do what we could never to alone! Feel free to ask for an invite to any of my teams.
No matter what.... just STAY SERIOUS & LOVE YOURSELF HEALTHY!
GO LOVELY LIMES!

If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.
