A NEW SPARK--EDITED May 3, 2020.

Hi, I'm Jen, (or Jeanette) from Charlotte, NC. I joined Sparks in June 2008 and have enjoyed the journey BUT IT'S TIME FOR A NEW BEGINNING--12 YEARS AND LOTS OF CHANGES LATER.

And now it's MAY 3, 2020-- Spring of 2020 . I have lost about 50 lbs. since I first joined Sparks, and that makes me very happy. So, I'll continue my current programs of eating and exercise. I DO have a few physical issues developed since last challenge, BUT same old me.

It's the beginning of May 2020 and I'm ready to be all I can be and I'm convinced that the SPARK TEAMS are the way to get there. I NEED this team and so do you--THIS PROGRAM has given me the tools I need to lose about 50 lbs so far and I still have a few to go....so WE ARE WORKING TOGETHER TO HIT MY GOALS.

AUG. 2018--several issues have developed recently so I will need to slow down a lot. Will cut back but never give up on Sparks.

My new mantra is NEV ER QUIT even when the going gets rough, and the road gets bumpy---When I find a good 'thing' I will hang in there until I reach my goal. However long that takes.

I AM DETERMINED TO DO WELL.
So-(-I have succeeded in losing all of the weight I want to lose.) and will continue to exercise for health.

I AM WOMAN--
AND--I will win this course of life.

I am going back to basics--sparing you a long list--
BUT my list will include:
Trying new and innovative diet changes
A GOOD ATTITUDE ABOUT ALL TEAM EFFORTS

****GREAT TEAM SPIRIT****

GET READY---HERE I COME TEAM

*****I AM NOW A SUCCESS IN PROGRESS********

BIG GOAL: SPECIFIC HEALTH GOALS

--BE A GREAT TEAM PLAYER--PARTICIPATE-ALWAYS

--HELP OTHER TEAM PLAYERS


"WHATEVER IT TAKES" is my motto. I am willing to give it my all to get H E A L T H Y . I've done enough damage to this body. Now it's time to take care of it.



So --I'm ++++++++ IN IT TO GAIN HEALTH ++++++++

HOW ABOUT YOU ???

    Hi Jen

    Welcome to the STOP Team. We are revving up for a New Year. We are starting with the accountability Challenge and we hope you join in.
    I love your day lilies if I didn't mention that someplace before.
    We are the same age and we were around the same weight until I did some back sliding. I won't go back to 190ville, but maybe I can catch you in 180ville. Come chat with the STOP Team members on the Holiday Thread. The Thread is up for the new challenge as well. MA

    hey old neighbor, I am dropping by to see how things are going with you. I hope all is well. I see that you have opened your page, it looks great and I love your statement to focus on what you have lost instead of what you have to lose, I need to do this. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! emoticon
