Fit for Life

I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister's suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became 'serious' two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT ...
I am Grateful for a full, rich and Blessed life!

My husband and I have been gifted with the presence of two beautiful grand-nieces and now a grand-nephew. Great incentive to stay healthy!

I started Spark in June of 2007 (at my sister's suggestion), restarted a few times and finally became 'serious' two years later after receiving my before photo. I met goal weight in late December 2009 and as incentive and reward went to Barbados with friends. (It is so wonderful NOT having to try on bathing suits...)

I continued to lose weight, partially because I couldn't figure how to reset the nutrition tracker, partly because I increased my exercise and partly because I was not yet comfortable with my body. I lost 10 more pounds over the next 3 months, for a total of 35 pounds and settled into my 'home shape.'

I celebrated a year anniversary of my before picture 5/24/10. Since that time I've fluctuated a few pounds and maintained a healthy BMI of 19-20.

I've found great friends with amazing stories, drive, determination and accomplishments on this site, and am honored to share in their victories and setbacks however small or large.

My goal is to be 'Fit for Life', so while I remain committed to healthy eating and exercise, I've expanded my horizons to include meditation. I am thoroughly enjoying my new journey, my new friends and my new adventure into blogging.

I hope all who visit my spark page, will find this site as rewarding as I have.

Update 01.30.12: I am starting on a new fat loss and muscle gain journey and shedding 10 'holiday' pounds.

Update 03.20.12: I am ThanksGiving for the miracles in my life as I continue on my healthy journey.

Update 07.03,14: Getting the Spark back - 5 more pounds and much muscle to go...

Update 04.25.15: At home weight and settling in.

emoticon for taking the time to comment on my blog! The way I'm stuck now at 190 I'll be lucky to lose my 5% goal in 8 weeks. So you're probably right that 8.5 is just right. I get overly ambitious.

Grinning from ear to ear. Turns out it came from the cord that holds my glasses. For some reason instead of being behind my head where it picks up my perfume it was round the front under my chin.

So pleased, thought I might be wafting away into the hereafter.... Grandiose - oh yeah thats me. emoticon So good to see the funny side and laugh at myself. x

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog Above the Knees. I believe our bodies are truly amazing and will respond to kind and loving treatment such as good nutrition and regular exercise. Here's to our mutual success on this path to wellness! (Aww! And gosh thanks for your status update thanking me for getting you to think about weight. I honestly never thought about the weight on my knees before.)
