I'm Patti and I live in Lacey, WA. I've been a spindle spinner for about two years, but now have purchased a table loom and am starting to weave. My first project--4 placemats and a runner, with mostly my handspun yarn.

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies ...

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople has imbedded in the program. I love the SparkPoints and the Teams. It's become a game with me to get as many points and do as much exercise as I can.

In August I walked my first 5K race. It was a big step from not being able to walk without a walker at the beginning of the year! And I realized that I've made my goal weight--so I'm now in Maintenance and am now taking on that challenge, too. So far I've been at weight for 3 months now and counting.

As the end of 2014 looms, I am so grateful for the ability to be active and for SparkPeople showing the way.

Good Morning emoticon Patti

Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring, & say emoticon for all your support on my blogs. Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem.... emoticon

Spring of Life

When winter days give in to spring
and trees begin to bud
I can see all God handiwork
from the grass to the stars above
The joy and warmth the daylight brings
as the birds sing songs of praise
for they are also happy
for the earth that God hath made
and when the coolness of the evening comes
and the dusk gives way to night
we close our eyes and say dear Lord
thank you for the beauty of life.
