Hi! One correction, the surgery was a little more invasive than I thought. They did cut through the sternum. Ouch! It went well, though. It's hard to believe it's already been 2 weeks, and I've been home for over one week already. A lot of progress has been made.

I first started this health and fitness quest with the intention of preventing potential heart problems that run in my family. I thought I was avoiding my mother's problems. However, I didn't think that I might inherit my father's problem. Actually, I could have ended up with both. It was a bitter disappointment to learn I have a bad aortic heart valve. Last spring, I had a heart cath and scope which revealed no artery blockages. Also, the heart muscle, itself, is in great shape. So, I actually did reverse, or prevent, some heart problems. Last week, when I was discussing this with the nurse practitioner, she told me my weight loss actually helped the doctors to diagnose me with a heart murmur. I didn't understand why, after all the weight loss, I still had a heart problem. My surgeon explained to me that this is purely genetic, and nothing I did, or neglected to do, caused this. So, unless God sees to miraculously heal me between now and March 20th, I will have heart surgery (aortic valve replacement). Since I have no blockages (no need for bypass), my incision won't be as big, nor will my ribs be pried apart. That cuts the recuperation time in half, and makes this less risky. So, there's a lot to be thankful for in spite of this. Prayers appreciated!

I am thankful for this site. I'm getting back on track with my diet and fitness program, and I think Sparkpeople has a lot to do with it!

This was the First Team I joined when I got connected on Spark People. I signed up with Spark People in August of 2010, but I really didn't sink my teeth (so to speak) into it until February of 2012.
I truly feel a lot of gratitude that this team was an active team back through all that time, but since, has been like phasing out. What attracted me to this team back then was the name of this team; it was what I needed to hear. I Can't Do This On My Own gives quite a message, and I know with God's Grace, I can go far.
I was drawn to the postings of the Leader GLITTERGIRL. She had the most inspirational messages that connected me to this team. When I was ready to find a healthier way of eating and an exercise routine, it was GLITTERGIRL that put a spark in me. I'm very grateful for all she has ever done on this team, a great Leader.
Remember everyone, you can always go back and the great blogs or anyone's blogs for that matter, but GLITTERGIRL had blogs on diet that I found helpful, and I love the one's she has on Listening to the Bible.
I see this team has been less active than I thought, but it definitely could be used by us. It is here for Everyone..

I know GLITTERGIRL has been (and is) a blessing to my life. emoticon emoticon

Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

I can still walk and even run. There was a time (four years ago) when running at all wasn't even in my thoughts, much less actions. In fact, I could barely walk.

Praise God for this glorious Mother's Day! I miss my Mom and my son who are in heaven but my daughter sent me an on-line card that she had made with a picture of this morning's sunrise in Denmark, and then my grandson called right after church! I am blessed!

Thank God in all things!

Still recovering from a miserable cold but I am counting my many blessings! I am beginning to feel better, DH has agreed to join me in my weight loss journey, our daughter will be home in mid-January for a few weeks (we will open our Christmas presents then), and my new computer arrived on Christmas Eve! I have enough of everything to meet my needs and I wish you all enough too! Happy New Year to all! Praise God for 2nd chances!

Praising God to be able to see the beauty of nature all around me.

When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

Praising and thanking God for blessing me in my recovery since January16th of 1987. I gave my addiction to God and He embraced me in sobriety.

I met with the Women's Group this morning as we do every Wednesday. We all expressed our gratitude.
Praise and Thanks Be to You, Dear God, for your many blessings.

I am praising and thanking God for the beginning of a beautiful week. I lost 3pds at my weigh in on Saturday. I am motivated and I thank the Lord for the gift of motivating others.

No Excuses...With the help of God I'm moving forward to a Fit and Fab Lifestyle. Ones Step at a time. One day at a time!

That my PCP's reaction to my weigh-in this morning was one of such delight! I now feel as if my mission to care for my Temple, as God has told me, has been one of completion! Dr. told me that I am down 40lbs since my top weight he had me at, (fairly new Dr)!! Because of my Father I have been able... Thank you, God for your direction.~Amen
