Hi, I'm Jeanette from Charlotte, NC. I joined Sparks in June 2008 and have enjoyed the journey BUT IT'S TIME FOR A NEW BEGINNING--9 YEARS AND LOTS OF CHANGES LATER.

I have just faced a reality:
I NEED SPARKS --AND--TRUTH BE KNOWN: I BELIEVE YOU PROBABLY NEED SPARKS TOO--COMMUNITY GIVES US STRENGTH.

My 1st experience with Sparks began in June 2008. This new beginning is Sept 2017--9 years, 3 mos. later.

I almost quit a week ago---SO GLAD I HESITATED AND THOUGHT IT OVER. I had a terrible summer--bad health issues, etc, but I don't want to talk about that, I want to talk about good things. NOW IS THE TIME I AM GOING TO LEAVE THE "BAD" THINGS BEHIND AND START LOOKING 'UP AND AHEAD' TO GREATER THINGS FOR MY HEALTH.

I AM NOT a very young person, but I AM A PERSON OF ACTION, OPTIMISM AND LOOKING AHEAD--so--as we begin the next season with Sparks and my FIRECRACKER TEAM, I will do well because I AM DETERMINED TO DO WELL.

I AM BACK--FULL TIME--
I AM WOMAN--I AM TOTALLY FIRECRACKER--
I AM DETERMINED TO BE A WINNER IN ALL AREAS OF THIS
SEASON WITH FIRECRACKERS
AND--I will win this course of life.

I am going back to basics--sparing you a long list--
BUT my list will include:
A GOOD ATTITUDE ABOUT ALL TEAM EFFORTS
GREAT TEAM SPIRIT

GET READY---HERE I COME TEAM FIRECRACKERS

*****I AM NOW A SUCCESS IN PROGRESS********

BIG GOAL: SPECIFIC WEIGHT LOSS
--BE HEALTHY IN THE PROCESS--HEALTHIEST ME
--BE A GREAT TEAM PLAYER--PARTICIPATE-ALWAYS
--HELP OTHER TEAM PLAYERS AS ASKED





WHATEVER IT TAKES is my motto. I am willing to give it my all to get healthy. I've done enough damage to this body. Now it's time to take care of it.

So --I'm in this to lose and already have lost...70.5 lbs

    Well, I had Laparoscopic Gall Bladder surgery, 4 abdominal surgical slits where the surgeon inserted instruments to extract my gall bladder, under anesthesia. All went well and I am fully recovered after 2 weeks.
    THANK you for the Spotlight comments. It is always great to know you are acknowledged and appreciated for what you do.
    However, I haven't been very active for these 2 weeks of recovery and will now be picking up my duties and carrying the ball along with my other team leaders.

    THANKS TO ALL who have sent well wishes.
