The Best is Yet to Come!

Hi my name is Rachel. Turning 50 and finding Sparkspeople was a pivotal point for me. I joined Sparks in December 2009 and reached my goal weight within 11 months. You can read and see the picture transformations in my blog, "The story behind the Red Hat" www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_

That was 5 years ago. I kept the weight off for most of those years; sure I would fluctuate 5 to 6 pounds, but for the most part, I maintained until now. I am looking forward to our journey together. When I wrote “The best is yet to come,” I believed it back then and still believe it now.


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I didn't get nearly as many steps as I hoped for but got to spend some quality time with people I haven't seen lately. Any big plans this week?

And still have time to enjoy Labor Day with your family :) Good luck tomorrow, just remember to...........Breathe:) and you'll do good!!! Oh, do you work the half day am or pm? I'll add an extra prayer for your first day tomorrow. Is your husband feeling better? I forgot, I change my profile picture, finally. Blessings.
