Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

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 ...
Welcome!

I am on the road to health - with fits and starts along the way. My highest weight was 288 and I started Sparkpeople seriously at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30, gained some back, but I'm on the road.

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.

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.

My nutrition is mostly whole foods, plant based. Some fish when dining out.

I was going to just post the picture on my blog but then the words apparently needed to be said. It's strange what the brain knows but until you see the words, you don't really 'get it'
Thank you for your beautiful comment and of course your friendship

A Little End-of-the-Week Encouragement

We don't have to worry
about how the week went
or how the next one will go.
Because all our days, all our ways,
are in the hands of One who loves us.
We sometimes feel uncertain...
could that possibly be made into good?
Then just when we least expect it, we find the answer--
that all our mistakes, all our hurts,
all we wish we could trade from these past few days
(and from a lifetime)
are being noticed, handled with care, turned into
something more than we could imagine.
You're loved. You're valuable.
You've got a purpose.
God's got a plan.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Romans 8:28
