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!

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. –Henry Van Dyke, author, educator, and clergyman

Use today, for it is a gift, to extend your love.

Have a Sparktacular weekend.

God must have known there would be
times we'd need a word of cheer,
Someone to praise a triumph
or brush away a tear.

He must have known we'd need to share
the joy of little things
In order to appreciate
the happiness life brings.

I think He knew our troubled hearts
would sometimes throb with pain,
At trials and misfortunes,
or goals we can't attain.

He knew we'd need the comfort
of an understanding heart
To give us strength and courage
to make a fresh, new start.

He knew we'd need companionship
unselfish....lasting....true,
And so God answered
the heart's great need
with Cherished Friends....like you!!


A Special Thank you for your friendship = it is a blessing to me.

Often God has to shut a door in our face so that He can subsequently open the door through which He wants us to go. –Catherine Wood Marshall

Learn to find comfort in the fact that life is unpredictable


As they say-If life gives you lemons, just make lemonade and make the best of it instead of moaning and groaning.

Have a wonderful Wednesday my friend.

You are my inspiration and I wanna thank you,
For without you, I don't know what I would do.
You've changed my life around,
And turned my frown upside down.
You have showed me the way,
So that I will never stray.
For this I wanna thank you again,
For staying close by and being a friend.
And to end this off I just wanted to say,
That if you need a friend,
I'll be there till the very end.
*Janelle J. James *

May the rest of your week be as fabulous as you are!!!!!
