Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

"Life isn't about getting and having, it's about giving and being."

- Kevin Kruse

Isn't it a shame we don't usually realize this until later in life. So many people are all about accumulating more and more and making more $$. That doesn't make us happy and at the end of life it isn't what I want to be remembered for. I hope people will say I was always there to lend a helping hand, a shoulder to lean on and was someone who they could count on when they needed me. To me that is a life well lived.

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ”

Maya Angelou

We are like that butterfly-going thru many changes to reach the goal we want to achieve.
