Nope, it wasn't an accident that I wrote "the" spark people; I was referring to all of you: all of you who choose to log onto this site and share with me every day. I needed that to get started, and I've been making myself read about you all every day--your successes, your backgrounds--and I LOVE looking at your progress pictures!
My struggles are with me, myself, and I. I've had a love affair with junk food my entire life. While I've been blessed to not be obese in spite of my poor eating, I've always wanted to wear a bikini, and I never have. And as if I were obese, I too have shied away from attending certain events and activities, and seeing people in my past, because of weight that I gained, or because I wanted to wear something awesomely sexy but could not wear what I wanted, or because I knew other women with incredible bodies would be there, and I couldn't take the pressure of knowing that I was not one of the incredibles--forget whatever else I have going for myself!
Anyway, I am just getting started, and I still have to renew my mind every day, so I SINCERELY appreciate all of you who motivate me with losing two, three, and four times what I have to lose--yes, YOURS are the stories that I read because my habits have been that bad and that long, and my mentality has me feeling like this is impossible. So I read from you every day. And I haven't had a candy bar, cookie, piece of cake, or ice cream in more than a week. And that is awesome--THANKS TO YOU!!!

Ummm, I want to stick to this and actually see 150# again--and STAY there, unless I decide that a different weight looks better!

I can do ALL things through Christ which strengthens me. Phillipians 4:16.
NOTHING is impossible for God.
God blessed me with a beautiful body and I have to show him I appreciate it by getting it back!
