I had to do something I was looking for a quick fix but I knew that was not the answer but I sought out surgery.
After finding out I could not have the surgery due to a medical problem I knew I had to do something and that is when things changed I was serious It was die young of obesity or live and I wanted to live.. I found spark that year in April I had already lost 30 lbs and I knew I needed support but I found much more.. not only from the professional staff of spark but the community that is here not sure how many members are on spark but these members will be there for you through everything.. to me they are not members they are my virtual life line which I plug into everyday of my life for motivation, support and encouragement that is why I am still here that is why I have lost 100lbs the spark way.. NO the road was not all smooth and paved with pillows there where detours, pot holes , traffic jams and down right roads under construction but one thing for sure is I did not have to travel it alone and I still don't.. I have Spark and the wonderful community.

Anita,

If finances don't allow the trip this year, the invitation stands any year you want to come! Harry will be retiring in January, but I think he'll still want to do this ride to see his work buddies. Even if he doesn't do it, we still could!

(Oh, and every time I'm restless with this, I remind myself of all the lectures and scoldings I gave you. emoticon )

Anita, at this point the cancer has reappeared as one large tumor behind her left eye and numerous "flare sites"--which are incipient tumors--throughout her brain. This happened when she was on a strong chemo regimen, and the widespread tumor areas mean that radiation would be like putting her brain in the microwave. As far as experimental studies go, most of them are aimed at specific genetic markers that she does not have, or require a projected life expectancy of at least 8 weeks without treatment. Staggeringly, she does not have that expectancy.

Back in the good ol days, I could go on a diet, never exercise at all, and still lose 2 lbs. a week. Ahhhh, to be young again.

Anita,

I haven't firmed up my bike events for this year yet. Here's a couple of charity rides I will probably do. I haven't registered for anything yet. Gotta check the calendar first --

Biking with Beanzie, DeKalb, IL - Sunday, July 13, 2014.
27.4 miles ; 41.4 miles; 63.0 miles; 77.6 miles; 101 miles

2014 Lorie's Lakeside Century - Saturday, September 13, 2014
Route Information - 25, 38, 63, 80 or 100-mile century from Chesterton, IN to New Buffalo, MI. The terrain is flat to gently rolling with rest stops every 15 20 miles.

Harry's company sponsors Lori's Lakeside Century, so I'm pretty sure we'll do that one. That is a pretty ride to Lake Michigan. I signed up for Biking with Beanzie last year, but broke my toe and jammed another toe the day before the ride. So no way I could do it. My girlfriend says it's a beautiful ride, though.

I'd love to have you come! You can stay at my place. Check your schedule for those dates and let's see if we can make it happen! If these dates don't work, I got a packet in the mail a week ago with all kinds of rides in the area. I haven't had time to look at it yet. There's Bike the Drive, which is riding along Lake Shore Drive in Chicago. That looked like it was pretty pricey, though. They shut down Lake Shore Drive, so I'm sure we're paying for that.
