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!

emoticon My water loving friend. That is my passion, the water excising. I just don't have a pool or I would live in it.(LOL) The pool I get to use sometimes is not available. That gets me off track and then I have to start over again. Oh well, as long as I don't stop it is going to be OK. I am back in the water again and hope that it can last for a long while. I need it. I sure wish there was a YMCA here, but no. It looks like you are doing so great. That is so encouraging to me. emoticon emoticon

The most sacred place dwells within our heart, where dreams are born and secrets sleep, a mystical refuge of darkness and light, fear and conquest, adventure and discovery, challenge and transformation. Our heart speaks for our soul every moment while we are alive.
Listen... as the whispering beat repeats: be...gin, be...gin, be...gin.
It's really that simple. Just begin... again."
-Royce Addington

Just stopping by to wish you a great day, Spark friend, and to encourage you to give yourself a new beginning every day. You can do it and you are worth it!
Hugs,
