I'm a Sparkler through and through!

I have been sparking for 2 years now. I'm a single mom with 3 grown children and 1 1/2 grandsons. I am constantly evolving and growing (mentally and emotionally) BUT I am also shrinking--physically.

I lived most of my life as a size 7 or 9. I was that woman others hated because I was thin and they weren't. Then about 12 years ago, I began emotional eating and gained---drum roll----60-70 pounds. I hated it! I spent the first year on SP losing 40 pounds. I spent the past ...

I lived most of my life as a size 7 or 9. I was that woman others hated because I was thin and they weren't. Then about 12 years ago, I began emotional eating and gained---drum roll----60-70 pounds. I hated it! I spent the first year on SP losing 40 pounds. I spent the past year gaining and losing 15 pounds. I could kick myself in the rear. I now weigh what I did a year ago (which happens to be what I weighed when I delivered my last child) Now it's time to really move forward. I have re-committed myself to this program whole-heartedly.

One of my life changing sayings---I can't remember where I found this, but I didn't create it:

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don't.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.

My Goals:
right now, I just want to get back to doing all of the healthy things I was doing 2 months ago!


My Program:
I will achieve my goals by continuing to trust God, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and never stop learning new ways to improve.

Personal Information:
I live in a rural area a little north of Memphis, TN. I have become a healthy lifestyle advocate by teaching those close to me everything I learn about food production, whole foods, and healthy eating. I recycle, reunse, and try to make my carbon footprint as small as possible.

Other Information:
I love kitties!

I think I'm actually beginning to understand bacterial genetics. And that's a little scary!

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. - Anna Quindlen.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. - Eleanor Roosevelt

No road is too long for him who advances slowly and does not hurry, and no attainment is beyond his reach who equips himself with patience to achieve it. ~ Jean de La Bruyere
