My Journey

I ran across Sparkpeople quite by accident, in March 2007 , while I was searching for places to help me lose weight.
I joined and it has been a God send.
I have learned so much. I was in starvation mode from eating only700 or 800 calories a day for many years, so it took me about a yearr to retrain my brain and eat more food and drink water.
Btu after the year was up, the weight came off pretty quicikly.
I just wish it did not come back on so easily.

I was a member of the Red Hot Chili Steppers and Roaring Red Rocketeers on the BLC team serving as co-captain and then captain.
Then I stepped down for one round, and started a new team on Sprks- "Super Charged and Ready- Team Biggest Loser."
Lots of positive energy; a great bunch of people and all of us getting healthy.
I came back to the BLC , with the Light Blue Bombshells and lthn sat out a round , and now I am with the Ivory Falcons , having first served as co-captain and now am captain of the team.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

    So sorry to hear about your health issues. They are not fun at all. I've been "fighting" with high blood pressure for about 2 weeks. Doc can't seem to get the right dosage.

    Two weeks ago I fell in our bathroom and hit my head on the bathtub and crack it open 1 1/2". I was bruised like I'd been beaten!

    I've thought about going back but I just don't want that pressure of WI all the time. I'm doing a challenge on another team and there isn't any pressure as we aren't on teams trying to beat someone else!

    Glad that you are doing so well.
