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. 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 & ...

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!

I just love your smile ! It is so very bright. Thank you for stopping by my page to spread your lime & Irish cheer all in one day. I enjoyed that. I hope you are reaching for your goals and getting closer each day. I bowed out of BLC this season but plan to rejoin for summer if they take me back. LOL ! I am pushing onward day by day. TC

I’d like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. I know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! Can’t do it! But I am here to tell u I did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 I got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs. to gain it all back, but I’m back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. If u stay within ur calories that are allotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. I lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure I never went over. I barely exercised ...I am handicapped and I can’t do exercises in the conventional way but I flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. I did very minimal stuff. The idea was to keep moving and I did that. So I know with discipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. So I invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge!
Click on link below! or if that doesn’t work cut and paste it! Please join me on my new journey to begin again!! cut and paste the link below
