The last few days has had me thinking about the time I spend with Sparks, as my anniversary(1st) will be coming up shortly. At first I thought, gee, I really haven't lost all the weight I wanted in this first year( actually--far from that goal). I sais to myself, self you sure didn't keep that goal anywhere in range, ok don't fret over that, you will not be making that weight goal by 2/18. So, after I figured that out(dah), started to figure out what was the good points for me in this almost 1st year. In a nut shell, I've learned how to eat healthier a great share of the time, do some sort of exercise consisitantly at home and going to the gym, and have learned to just do it ---it's part of my life now. But then I realised the biggest change for me was when my Diabetic specialist took me off all my medicines including insulin. His trust in me of my diet and exercise prompted this action. I have been off all meds since early November---haw happy I am that I have become a winner. I may not have lost a lot of weight, but I won a battle for now of not needing meds for my diabetes. I know there may come a time that I may need those meds again but for now, I have made some headway , and watch out world here Fran comes to claim the prize of losong more weight and maybe get rid of some of the other meds I take each day---along with the weight I still want to lose for good. I will still have a day of , I shouldn't have eaten this or whatever but I'm still in the game.

    Proud of you! That is truly a major accomplishment.

    AND now you can lose the weight too...maybe slowly, but that is OK. One thing at a time.

    I think that's the great 'side effect' of SP. Initially everybody comes here to lose weight but pretty soon we discover that it's so much more. Incredible what you've accomplished in just one year. Keep up the good work!
