What's the plan?

Thursday, June 06, 2013



I firmly believe that God put it on my heart to live my weight loss dream of being 140 pounds again (what I weighed when I got married 19 years ago). I know He put that dream in my heart for a reason & God's plans are always good.



When He puts the plan in your heart, He will help you follow through to the end. He's so good that way. He was with hubby & me every step of the way as I went through breast cancer diagnosis & treatment & I never felt any fear whatsoever. Why should now be any different?

If nothing else, I will have learned how better to lean on God through good times & bad. emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

  Major challenges; such as what you went through; make us stronger and much more appreciative of life. I feel that you recognize that and are willing to share that conviction with our Spark Community. emoticon

One day closer to our goals!! WooHoo!!

Tuesday, June 04, 2013



It doesn't take a lot to get closer to your goals. One healthy choice after another . . . one workout after another. String those along for many, many days & you have a solid plan going on there!!

That's not so hard, right?

Just push a little harder each day.



Yes, emoticon



Are you ready for some good things? Because I am!! emoticon

Make yourself proud of YOU today!!

You are not alone.

Monday, June 03, 2013



I have received so much support here on SparkPeople (SP)! If you haven't yet reached out to the SP community, you're really missing out on a great resource for inspiration, motivation & support. I am convinced that this is the reason SP works for me when nothing else has. I am a super busy person, so I don't have time to go to weigh-ins & meetings, but I do have a few minutes to Spark each day. emoticon

Any time you take the time to encourage someone, your life will be enriched. ~ Pastor Mike H., Sunday Sermon at my church ~



Thank you for taking the time to encourage me. I am so blessed!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Difficult doesn't mean impossible . . .

Sunday, June 02, 2013



Some things just take hard work -- that's the way it is. I know that there are days when I wish losing weight was easy, but if it was, would I learn anything about myself? Probably not.

On this journey, you'll find out who you really are. I already know this about myself (I'm the one hanging upside down):



emoticon But there is so much more to me than that.



Who are you? Are you strong? Kind? Courageous? Giving? Let go of the limitations you put on yourself & find out who you really are. I'll bet you surprise yourself, too. emoticon



Difficult doesn't mean impossible!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
