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!

My name is Dawn & I live in Martinsville VA.
I am involved in 2 awesome private Spark Teams that help me with my program. The 1st team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends The 2nd team is called: The Path to Freedom--Loving Ourselves Healthy BOTH teams are "friendship" teams. The 1st provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. The 2nd is similar but geared towards people that HAVE or NEED to lose 200 lbs or more. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

LIFE is an echo,
what you send out,
comes back.
What you sow,
you reap.
What you give,
you get.
What you see
in other,
exists in you.
Remember
life is an echo.
It always gets
back to you!
So give goodness!
