I am 68. My DH passed on 4-19 of last year after 16 years. I also lost two fur babies within a week of each other. Faith has brought me thru. I have 4 dogs, a cat. With Gods Grace, I will prevail. I recently adopted a 6 week old Boston Terrier and named her Sami. She has been a joy to watch grow. She is growing so fast. I joined SP July 21, 2014 and lost 37 pounds in the first six months by eating healthy and exercising. Over the next two years, I went through a gain/loss period. I gained all but 10 pounds back. I began the Ketogenic diet on September 25, 2017. I have currently lost a total of 50 pounds and have now met my ultimate goal weight. This next journey will be an exciting time. Maintenance is an adjustment not to mention very challenging. One thing a person needs is to use all the skills learned to work thru the bumps of this journey. My workouts consist of Cardio 5 days a week. Core exercises with coach Nichole and/or Leslie Sansone 2 or 3 times a week. Strength Training with Coach Nicole and/or Leslie Sansone 2 or 3 times a week. I could not have done this without the help of my SparkFriends and SparkCoaches. SparkOn!!! WE CAN DO THIS!! Let's Go Daisies!!!

    We practice unconditional love – loving ourselves as is. It is a declaration of self – I am enough. Right now. It’s not unconditional love if it’s conditional. Karly Randolph Pitman
