My first Spark Trophies date back to 2009. I have had weight issues since childhood and I have tried many different diet plans that didn't last. Just like you. My yo-yo dieting has left me discouraged, frustrated, and feeling hopeless at times. I didn't start at my highest weight when I came to SP. Somehow I had managed to loose some wieght on my own, but I was feeling stuck and needed some structure and support in order to move forward.

Since 2009 I have continued the struggle. Some times on program and some times off. After all these years I have not lost hope of achieving my goal and so I remain a SP fan.

2013 I trained for my first 5K, learned about fatloser.com and
The Beck Solution, and had my first hip replacement!
2014 I had my second hip replacement.
2015 I took the year off from the diet world and celebrated life!
2016 I struggled all year with a knee injury
2017 I am determined to succeed this year! My goals are:
1. Feeling calm & peaceful
2. Ditching the negative self-talk
3. Finding balance in my life between the Physical,
Emotional, Intellectual, & Spiritual
4. Getting more fit by building muscle strength
5. Eating healthy & losing 10#

    Thank you for your kind words of support on my blog. David is doing much, much better on the new tapering down off the Ativan he takes "when needed". WE needed it for too long this time.

    You do not have to be great @ everything you do. The value comes from enjoying the experience. So, have fun and lighten up! Camille Lucy
