The Best Birthday Gift

Friday, November 14, 2014

Today is my 62nd Birthday....I find it hard to believe ...but it is true....
on my 52nd Birthday I wondered how much longer I would live.....I was more than 200 pounds over weight, I had a very stressful job....it was hard to walk from my car to the store door, I would look for a cart so I could use that.....I was depressed and had a lot of very dark days....
I tried never to go out to people's home or accept invitations to parties.....I was to embarrassed by my weight...I always felt like I was the fattest person in the room....I felt a lot of guilt and humiliation ..
I was one very unhappy person....

But today I am 144 lbs....I am healthy, I exercise at least 120 minutes a day, I am full of energy I am filled with love from my family and friends......and myself


Finding Spark People was the best thing that ever happened to me...

Getting healthy is the best gift I have ever given myself....this morning when I woke I thought...another birthday that I can be proud of, another day to be proud of....I lost over 200 pounds and have kept it off....I have made so many friend here and the joy continues....they give me the motivation to keep going...they give support and understanding...

Thank you all for the well wishes for my Birthday....I am filled with excitement for my life....





it is the best gift of all
