The LOVELY LIMES BLC TEAM FAMILY
my SERIOUS SISTERS
& SPARKPEOPLE are saving my life.

My journey with SparkPeople began in May 2009 when I weighed somewhere around (more than but the scale didn't go that high) 475 pounds. My doctor advised me to LOSE WEIGHT OR DIE. Because of that I went straight to the YMCA & got involved with their aquatic department. Thanks to water aerobics & swimming, I am healthier today than I have been in years. I not only participate but I teach WA & swim classes daily. Exercise in the water is the BEST way for me to lose weight & stay healthy without too much pain.

One day at a time, my life is changing for the better. I am blessed to be a part of a few awesome team families. The support & encouragement that I find on these teams is wonderful. I am PASSIONATE about leading the LOVELY LIMES BLC team famiy.
I am also involved in an awesome private Spark Team that helps me with my program. The team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends It is a "friendship" team that provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

GO LOVELY LIMES!

    Hello Dawn! Thanks for the words of encouragement on my blog!

    Purple is my new favourite colour. It was red for the longest time, but I've found myself picking out more purple things when I go shopping these days. I even painted my bedroom a nice dark purple. Got a new duvet cover to match, and even bought a purple print from my friend who is an artist. (Will post pictures on a blog later this week).

    Really looking forward to the challenge and to working with the Lovely Limes!!

    Have a fantastic day!
