Lowest Weight Ever on Spark! Party Time!

Sunday, July 21, 2019

Happy Dance! I am 197.8 pounds today, my lowest weight in 11.5 years of Sparking! I am smiling as I write this, it's been a long time coming. I may be the world's slowest loser, but I have never given up on myself. I have tried many different things along the way but nutrition tracking is the bomb. This quote always motivated me - "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm."... Sir Winston Churchill.

My theme this year is 'Do More of What Makes Me Happy!' Today I am celebrating my birthday with a garden party and 30 guests! The yard looks beautiful with balloons, flowers and lots of comfy seating, plus a little dance area.

This is the invitation I sent out. Alan and our grandchildren have planned a garden party to celebrate my birthday. Please come for lunch and have fun with the activities the kids have planned.

They want to do a photo booth so if you have something that would be a fun prop (ie. hat, feather boa, etc.) to loan, please bring it along. If you play an instrument please bring it and your sheet music too. For sure there are some musicians like the ukelele players, a talented violin soloist, and others.

The grandchildren will be serving birthday cupcakes too.

Your presence will be gift enough. Thanks!

I usually celebrate my birthday with a small family gathering or going out for dinner with hubby. I only remember one other big birthday party when we lived in the north. People who have summer birthdays know friends are often away on vacation, so having 30 guests is a good number.

I am especially happy knowing I am staying in onederland! I have been Sparking since Jan. 24, 2008, so it's taken me more than 11 years to get to this lowest weight. I have given away all my big clothes, so no safety net.

My weight history - March 2007 I weighed more than 242 pounds (wasn't weighing) and busting out of size 20. I have quickly touched in onederland a few times but never stayed for long.

Onward and downward! And yes nutrition tracking works!
