    "Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplacable spark.
    In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all,
    do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.
    The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."
    -Ayn Rand

    TGIF! How has your week been going, Sparkfriend? I hope you have been doing great and are ready for a fit, fun and fantastic weekend! Keep eating right and being active. My current mantra is "be your own hero" and I'm inviting you to be your own hero too! I know you can do it, and as always I am here if you need support.

    Thank you for the hot cocoa goodie! So yummy...and calorie free, right? LOL

    I am looking forward to getting to know you too! I too thank God every day for His blessings. I have struggled a long time to lose this weight again and now I have just totally turned it over to Him. I know that as long as I am willing to put forth my best effort, He will be there to help me!

    Congrats on losing 6 lbs in three weeks, that is great progress! Keep up the good work, and remember to take it one day at a time.

    I lost 86 lbs in 2005/2006 but only maintained it for about a year before I gained it back. I have been struggling since but I have never even THOUGHT about giving up, and now I am finally back on track and it feels great. I have no idea how much I weigh or how many pounds I need to lose. I don't own a scale and don't plan to! From now on, I am just working to get back down to a size 10 and to stay there. Weighing myself is too frustrating so its just not for me.

    Have an awesome day!

    Hi Kathy,

    Glad you contacted me. Absolutely! I feel the Lord blesses me every time He gives me a new Christian Friend. I read your blogs. I want to encourage you to set reasonable goals and keep up your tracker everyday. You are doing great. If you lose your weight to fast you will most likely gain it back. Losing slow is much better. Stay off the scale. I use to drive myself crazy with the scales in the past. I would be discouraged more than you could believe. I only weigh when I go to the doctor or if it has been a month. I have been very satisfied with the weight lose doing it like that. I don't pay any attention to the calories burned when I exercise. I will only get discouraged. I do pay attention to how much better I feel and that my clothes are getting bigger. I concentrated on being obedient to the Lord and taking care of this body He gave me. I really didn't do a very good job of it for most of my life. I didn't include God's help with my weight all those years either. Now I am trusting the Lord for His help and relying on His word for guidance. The Christian Spark Community has been a huge blessing and help. You will see. If I can help in any way let me know. I will pray everyday for you as I do for all my Sparkfriends. I will encourage you to the best of my ability. I hope you will do the same. God bless you! I have made you a Spark Friend. Take it day by day and let God lead you. emoticon emoticon
