I'm so grateful for SparkPeople! I started (again) at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30+ so far, from my highest weight in January, 2013, of 288. Now I am headed to losing 100 more.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable weight loss.

If I can you ...

If I can you do it -- so can you. I've been though major life changes here, and I keep learning to love myself, treat myself well, and thus eat better and move my body.

Good grief Pam-Steady is not a word that should ever be associated with me! I'm just a regular old meatball trying to roll with the punches! You give me way too much credit! You are welcome to all the thoughts and prayers I have for you on a daily basis. Seems like you are doing a great job of taking care of YOU! and that is such a hard lesson to learn. I hope you had/are having a wonderful weekend with your son!

I was raised in a mixed-race family. I do not consider any of my choices in life or comments to have consideration for any races because to me it isn't an issue.

I hear where you are coming from. You hear where I'm coming from regarding the matter of equality, feminism, race.

We do not disagree at all and that we agree on.

I try to lighten up on my discussion of inequality because of the rage I sometimes feel. I was treated fairly equal until coming to BOYz, Idaho. There have been many shocking situations I have gone through. Not because the incidents were shocking (they were sexist!) but because I truly had never experienced them before. It took me several years to get a clue!
Now not only do I have a clue, I know the sources. I am a woman not to be messed with by those sources. Those sources understand and let me be. LOL
