It's been a while.....

My how time flies! I can't believe school is almost out and I have been on Spark People for 4 months. What a blessing it has been!

I have been quite scarce on spark here lately. Oh, I pop on now and then and read blogs and comments and go page hoppin'...but ever since the weather has gotten warmer, I long to be outside.

I have been making wonderful progress, thanks in a big part to my sweet husband. When I first joined spark, he was still making bad food choices and having trouble with his lifestyle. Then one day, he decided to make some changes in his way of thinking about food and exercise!!!! He was finally on board with me!!!!

He has never really had a weight problem. But as we all know, you can be slender and still have health problems. He had received some numbers he didn't like from his last physical and it got him thinking of how he needed to change. I was so excited when he started helping me with the shopping and he has even got me jogging to the end of our road and back. I have NEVER been one to do that kind of activity, I thought I couldn't.....! But I am amazed at how I am able to get out there every day and make it. It is hard, that is for sure, but every time I go running, I lose at least a pound, sometimes two!!!!

So I have updated my ticker and have lost 12 pounds so far!!! I am certainly on my way!!!! It feels so good to have finally accomplished some weight loss. But even more importantly, my marriage is growing stronger and stronger with every passing day, and for that I am very grateful!!!

I thank the Lord, my husband and all of my precious spark friends who have helped me along the way!!!!!

I love you all!!!!!

    emoticon You know how I feel about you, and what an added blessing! You and your husband are growing closer and building a strong marriage! Praise God for all He is doing in your life, and how happy I am, that you are spending time with him and outdoors, enjoying God's creation and knowing His grace and love for you!
