The Journey Continues

I have been on this weight loss journey with SparkPeople for longer than I care to admit and I'm still not where I wanted to be. On a positive note, although I've lost weight and gained some of it back, I haven't gained it all back ... and then some.

I hope you are well. It sounds like you are raring to fly!
I've had many reasons to smile today, but seeing your name on the Fall Community gave me my biggest smile of the day!

Hi, emoticon you were my first read this morning. Glad you are back and ready to go. I have been here since '06, in and out, but this time I am staying the course no matter how long it takes. Happy for you that you can be that active!! Those days are gone for me, but I am thankful for my power chair. Let us know how you are doing, we are here for you.
Sending emoticon your Spark friend, Betty
