Welcome to my Spark Page!

"We SPARK to know we're not Alone." I am here because I STAY motivated when I surround myself with other like minded friends on the same journey as I. It really helps my progress to be held accountable by supportive mentors.

Successfully losing 70 pounds several years back was the beginning of my journey and maintaining my loss was successful too. Then I developed plantar fasciitis... a long story to be sure, but not without a happy ending. After following podiatrist's orders and wearing custom made orthotic inserts daily, my feet are HAPPY, and I am thankful to be pain free.

However, I slowly gained weight during the past 3 years - applying the brakes to my fit & active lifestyle produced a more sedentary lifestyle as well as my allowing bad eating habits to creep back into my life.

Notwithstanding, I am a Rebounder, and I'm back to tracking all meals and my daily fitness. 2019 is MY year for reclaiming once conquered ground and maintaining for a lifetime!

SLOW progress IS progress and celebrating each small step is what I do now. A little progress each day adds up to BIG results.
I eat less, and move more, and what a ..:::GIFT:::.. it is just to "move"!

“Sometimes the things we do second time around are better and hold more value because we take the time to reflect and review, and revive them through a higher love.
Don't be afraid to try again and do over with greater wisdom, a fresh set of eyes, and a renewed hope.
Life is not a straight line of first time successes.
It's the road that is paved with failure and seemingly wrong turns that provides us with character, emotional grit, and inner muscle to find new perspectives.
The only expiry date to your dreams, intentions or goals is the one you allow to soak into your soul.” ~ Christine Evangelou

"Success is not a destination, it's a journey."

"Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it."

    You play the cello? I took cello lessons in high school and wish I could afford to get one and take lessons again. Have you read any of Dick Francis mysteries? I love him. I love to read too, but Spark has been taking me away from that---LOL---but trying to cut back my computer time. How old are your children? My 3 sons are older---29, 28 and 19---but I have an adorable 2 and half month old granddaughter. Thanks for adding me as a friend. Let me know if I can help you in any way on Spark---I 've been on for over a year and a half.

    Well! Finally!! Glad you got your SparkPage acting the way it should.

    I can't believe your ticker. You, YOU actually weighed that much? Nooooo!! LOL

    Enjoy Sparking. It's addictive. And, unlike the WCMB, it pays dividends for your effort with others.

    Hugs and kittie kisses!
