I am Diane,, and wish to say TY SO MUCHERS for coming onto my page !! I HOPE you leave here ENCOURAGED !

I've been on SPARKS now for 4 yrs, and I've NOT lost much overall,,, at first I was STRUGGLING with MANY HORRIBLE habits,, 6 to 8 pepsi's a day ! NEVER Water,,, I slowly changed that down to ONLY Water now and smoothies with FRUIT of which along with feggies ALSO DID NOT EAT !! I Was a PIGGY HOG of cheese cake,,, triple layer choc cake,, and whoopee pies ! I'd eat them for supper and I was FINE WITH THAT !! AND I was ALSO losing ! I had started out at 288 lbs and was at 256 when I found SPARKS,,, I am now having the WORSE OF TIMES getting down to the 200 in the teens. It's SO AWEFUL !! BUT YET, I WILL NOT QUIT !!! That's a STRONG message to send to ALL ,, DO NOT STOP !! IT WILL WORK IF WE KEEP MAKING THE CHANGES which may take sometime.

I was hit by an 18 wheeler in 92,,,, my whole world caved in. I also had a personal experience which I wish ON NO WOMAN During that yr,, and a month b4 the car accident to the DAY my Mom had died,, and that was her funeral date. 92 was the PITS !!! The worse of ALL and I had seen a LOT b4 that ! but, yet, I have FOUGHT MY WAY BACK thanks to a GREAT therapist,, if you are struggling with ANY issues,, and its causing you to eat more,,,,, I DO Suggest (NOT SPARKS SUGGESTION, but I DO) that you PLZ talk to someone you can TRUST that they ALSO NOT HURT YOu in return. Life is NOT perfect, neither shall it be, but yet,,, we can ALL be FIGHTERS !

:) So though I am in a TON of pain,,, this past Winter Challenge with the SPIRITED UNDER DAWGS, also on the LOSING and DISABLED team,, and another one which I also help lead (I do the first 2 also) is the BELIEVE , ACHIEVE and SUCCEED team !!! between the 3 of these teams,, I am now THRIVING !!! I DO STRONGLY believe IN MYSELF and of course my faith in Jehovah God (Found in PS 83;13 in most Bibles is his name) and that aids me JOYFULLY though I WILL NOT talk about my faith hardly at all,,, feeling that SPARKS is separate from this.

In the WINTER 5% Challenge the DAWGGIES were #1 in the WEIGHT LOSS (I need to update this as the other stats come in) but, MANY TIMES on the Exercise Challenge,, and awaiting to see how we placed with the LTGL (Living The Good Life) such as drinking 8 glasses of a water for a week,, than the next week,,, to eat 5 to 7 freggies (FRuits and vEGGIES),,, to maybe eat enough Protein,, or NO caffeine,, the list go on and on. If you are NOT a part of the 5% challenge (Which runs for 8 weeks and is a PRIVATE team) PLZ let me know,, we can invite you for the next one.

Also the LAD (Losing and Disabled) team is open to ALL at ANY TIME,,,,, it's if you suffer from a physical or mental or emotional illness. We are TOTALLY THERE FOR YA !! ANd of course is the BELIEVE , ACHIEVE, and SUCCEED team, which is ALSO OPEN at all time. COME and GET TO KNOW US, and be ABSOLUTELY INFUSED with GET UP AND GO !!! BELIEF IN YOURSELF ! and ACHIEVING the WEIGHT LOSS by making IMPROVEMENTS.

I am also gluten free now which REALLY helps,, I am this to help out with the arthritic pain. AND IT DOES !! if you have not tried this and the arthritis is bad, PLZ DO TRY IT !! its usually noted AT ONCE within 1 to 3 days, of being TOTALLY OFF Gluten.



My Program:
To continue to swim 3 times a week,, as long as my BFF can do so,, she 's having heart/breathing issues,, for NOT EVER taking care of herself. Now shes STARTING to, it may be to late????? I HOPE NOT !!! I usually do not think this for ANYONE, but she and I are closer than sisters,, and it scares me,, as it has been since she started to have heart problems over 4 yrs ago.

Personal Information:

She's part of a brown tiger,, and part Lemar' kitty,, the Lamar' cat will ALWAYS when you hold them put their paw on ur face !! Here you can see Izzy is trying to do so in the pic,,, I had just moved my face away from her paws. She's soooo funny !! As I do yoga,, she ALSO does it WITH ME !! As I do a pose to another pose,, she will FLOP From SIDE to SIDE,,,, if I do the "Cat Stretch" SHE WILL ALSO do this !! She's a "Therapy" cat,,, In that she knows when I am headed into to much pain,, I do not always notice this,, and she'll come and HEAD BUTT me on the left side of my

emoticon I actually did MORE than 120, but I read that we can't count for more than that. I haven't been tracking on here because I do it while I am at work and with going on vacation... I haven't had time with trying to get these projects completed before leaving.

I was going to update everything today and realized that I left my paper at home with all my food and stuff on it. Ten to 1 my husband throws it away :( But I know I as in my calorie range and was walking at least 10000 steps each day... because of the yard sale I was up and moving Friday - Sunday! I'm back at work now and suffering from allergies so we shall see if I keep it up emoticon

Hi Diane,

Hope your pain is easing and you're looking forward to Easter! Thank you so much for being such a great leader. Your words have stuck with me when I've struggled over the last two weeks. Hang in there. You are an inspiration emoticon

Thanks for the comment on my page. I do use the trackers normally, but I haven't had the free time to do it lately. Tax season is over, but I have payroll deadlines that I am working on right now. I will try to be more active in the other parts of the challenge in the next few weeks.
