I thought it was time for a new picture. More inspiring than a fat picture, I think.













I have 15 pics in my gallery

Just do it! Chapter 2.

HELLO. I'M JAS. I am a Mum, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend... I am a teacher, a musician & I sing at church. This is the place I am most accepted as I am. People there don't care or even see that I am overweight. What they see is my "inner light". What they hear is "the voice of an angel." That's NOT what I see or hear!! I am my own harshest critic and despite having patience, kindness and sympathy for others, without judgement, I can't seem to offer myself the same compassion. ...

I am my own harshest critic and despite having patience, kindness and sympathy for others, without judgement, I can't seem to offer myself the same compassion. This is me.

We have to be able to share our difficult times as well as our successes without fear of criticism from others on here and I like to try to support others. I was horribly insulted and upset by another Spark member at a difficult time. As a result, I deleted most of my blogs and posts. I regret that now. That was my story - "The good, the bad and the ugly." If you don't like what I'm writing, don't read it. It's that simple. I can't change my past, but I'm trying to change my future. This will take time and effort, and a little support would help. :) If you'd like to follow my journey, feel free to add me as a friend. I will do my best to support and encourage you along the way and to remember you in my prayers. Please keep me in your prayers also.

Here is my story so far:
Growing up, I was always a healthy weight and relatively slim, but I'm heavy boned, so I was never one of the slimmest girls. I wish I had known then how slim I actually was!!

At the age of 21, I gained just a couple of pounds. I lost it for a while, but put it back on again plus a bit more. That was the start of years of yo-yo dieting. I also became very ill at the age of 23, eventually being diagnosed with M.E./C.F.S. The severity of my symptoms fluctuates, but I live with it every day. No excuses here, but it certainly doesn't help my weight. Nor does being overweight help my health condition. I believe they are intertwined.

I joined here in August 2013 and quickly lost 16lbs, but then I got stuck, became unwell and then came the festive season. I regained 10lbs, more yo-yo-ing.

So, Jan 2014 and I'm back, and, in the words of 80's Whitesnake classic: "Here I go again on my own." Except, I'm not on my own. "I'll walk with God", and I walk with a SPARK! Let's spread the spark. We can do it alone. But "it's better together". There's another song! - I'll share the links. ;)

Thanks for reading. Wishing you good health, strength and happiness on your Spark journey. All the very best.

Here are the songs:

My Goals:
Long-term goal = to lose 70lbs.

For interim goals, see blog on Jan. 11th 2014:
"9 Steps to 9 Stone, 12 Steps to Goal"

My Program:
Pray every day and walk with God. Live in gratitude and find the positive in every situation. Be thankful for successes, but be honest in your failings. If others don't like this or don't want to follow your journey, that's ok. Let them walk their own path, but don't let them push you down. Do it for you, and do it for God.
Take one day at a time. Plan, prepare and progress. Weigh, measure and track. Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Eat 5+ Fruit & Veg. Exercise at least 10mins daily. Weigh in weekly, not daily. BELIEVE. SMILE.
