Returning to SparkPeople was one of the best decisions I made in 2012.

I hit my goal weight of 120 lbs 12/31/12 and it was the best way to end the year. I maintained my goal weight all of 2013 and to celebrate it I joined the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team.

Motto for 2014: I am an adult!
(And will therefore think and act like one, when my inner 3 year old wants to take over!)

Motto for 2015: Shut up and do it!
I lost my grip on my goal weight and hovered around 130 lbs all year.

Motto for 2016: Sometimes, you just have to be an adult about it and do it!
Rough year, I left the At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance team because I felt like a fraud after almost 2 years of not being near my goal weight.

Motto for 2017: Right Now!! (Borrowed from ONEKIDSMOM)

Motto for 2018: I am strong. I am invincible. I am woman. -Helen Reddy (I’m done feeling sorry for myself. Despite the chronic pain, I am determined to get back to my fit self.)

Motto for 2019: [Didn’t get around to picking one]

Motto for 2020: Take it as a sign.

Motto for 2021: Don’t rinse off your fluoride!

    The Cake Of Friendship emoticon

    Preheat the oven of love
    With plenty of secrets and hugs

    Mix in giggles and laughs
    That make your sides split in half

    Bake with the love and care
    And all the things you both should share emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Decorate with the frosting of trust
    This is really a must

    Enjoy the cake do not eat it fast
    Just like your new friendship make it last.

    Hi Dee, hope u r enjoying your day! we will be heading back home in the morning, it has been really nice going at a slower pace ! makes u realize how good we really have it! a friend sent me this song and I wanted to share it with u, Enjoy!

    I see trees of green,
    red roses too.
    I see them bloom,
    for me and you.
    And I think to myself,
    what a wonderful world.

    I see skies of blue,
    And clouds of white.
    The bright blessed day,
    The dark sacred night.
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world.

    The colors of the rainbow,
    So pretty in the sky.
    Are also on the faces,
    Of people going by,
    I see friends shaking hands.
    Saying, "How do you do?"
    They're really saying,
    "I love you".

    I hear babies cry,
    I watch them grow,
    They'll learn much more,
    Than I'll ever know.
    And I think to myself,
    What a wonderful world. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
