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!

    emoticon for you much appreciated comment on my more recent blog. I had not proofread it before posting it = I had not realized how extremely long it was until I went back to read the first five comments, so changed it to share highlights only. As verbose as I can be & my total enjoyment of the longer blogs of others (the longer the better in my opinion), I don't believe it prudent of me to have put out such an overly long blog, so to that end I revised/edited/shortened the blog.

    My own cherished Mom playfully teased me once saying that I write like I talk = on & on & on! Need I say more? emoticon There is always a trace of truth in such kidding around, now isn't there? emoticon

    God bless your Saturday, November 25th, 2017! A month to the day until we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Christ Jesus!
