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!

Thanks for reading my blog. Yes - Neils is fine now. Weavel fish stings are extremely poisonous and painful, so he was very unlucky but very brave. The garage are going to check the car over really thoroughly before I get it back and will sort everything out, so hopefully I'll be able to relax a bit with it. Despite everything it was a lovely holiday and so nice to have the whole family around. emoticon

You know, cutting rock and mountain is a slow work. Sometimes it looks as though nothing is happening.
Speaking the sureness of this work is a must, keeping us focused on this truth rather than what we do not see happening.

Oh, to trust that inner voice rather than the doubt! Speak, speak, speak – let the echoes resound and fill us to full and echo again!

Keep pushing - never give up!
