Hi everyone,

Originally on this site I started off by asking someone to give me a kick in the behind to get me started. I now have come to realize that just spending time, absorbing the spirit of the spark is in effect the kick that I was looking for. To think otherwise would be negative backward thinking, not positive forward thinking....I know tmi....

But for those who don't know me yet I'm Karen 57 year old mother of two wonderful daughters, their spouses and two great grandsons.

Before Sparks I had tried every diet in the world and now realize the D word is not really about what we are doing here. Small steps lead to big gains (in the good weigh).

I have lost weight since joining, did it take awhile yes. Was it worth the wait, yes.

I'm approaching 4 months now and have not looked back a day.

    Thanks for posting your encouraging post to my Sparkpage. It really does help. You are really on a roll with your exercise. You're a trooper when it comes to fitness. I am glad you don't swim alone, and it's smart to wait for your husband. Plus it's more fun with company. Today is my day off from exercise. Actually, I am exhausted. I got up extremely early, couldn't go back to sleep, and had to work a 10 hour day. I'll be back on the treadmill tomorrow. I'm religious with my food and exercise tracking. You and the team are a real inspiration for me.

    Been thinking of you in this storm as they say huge surfs your way. I saw pics of Lockeport on FB and wow what a mess snowed in driveways and water up to the edge of the driveway.
    HOpe you are all safe and sound and have power too. We are okay here, hubby just in from shovelling the 2nd time today. Snow has stopped too.
    Take care....
