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!

    Get well soon! So much going around! I am finally starting to turn the corner or whatever the saying is with my virus. I actually had some energy today and could breathe a little through both nostrils. I felt like a new woman!

    Thank you for your encouragement and support on my blog. I am in Germany this week and having a very chilled out time. I'll be teaching on Thursday and Friday but taking some good walks every day. I am reassured that what went on last Thursday was just as likely to be a migraine, so have relaxed about it, but still taking it as a warning to get fit and healthy again.
    Have a wonderful Valentines Day and week. emoticon emoticon
