I am a Christian woman of God & co-heir with Christ!! That statement excites me!!! I’m not who I was because my Savior, the King of kings, wore a thorny crown and conquered death. Now that’s power, friend! "I am a woman who now confidently approaches the throne of grace because of the finished work done by Jesus Christ." (Hebrews 4:16)
My best friend is my husband, we have been married for 19 years.. I am the mother of 2 grown children, Victor, he is now in heaven, and Tara, she lives about 35 miles from me, step mother of 2, Shayne and Ashley, and grand mamma of 4, Tyler, Tony, Conner and Victoria. Grand #5, C.J. was born March 27, and # 6 will be here in August!
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes on August 10, 2012. Okay, so I did this to myself and I am going to correct this situation.
My goal is to loose 95-100 pounds by changing my eating habits to healthy and by exercising (something I have not done in a long time) so I can beat the diabetes (or get is under control). I want to be able to enjoy my husband and grandchildren for a long, long time!!!
I found SP on August 13th and I haven't looked back. I have already lost 23 lbs since the 10th of August!!!!!!!!!
Keep sparking America!!

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

    “In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

    "I believe that we are who we choose to be.
    Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
    Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
    Nobody knows what you want except for you.
    And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
    So don't give up on your dreams."

    "Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

    Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't are worth the effort!
