Accountability! Friendship! Commitment! Transformation!

Strong words with deep meanings for me right now. I have come back to SPARK after a 3 year absence. To be more specific...I have come back to my home team CAMO CREW in the Biggest Loser Challenge Team.

Events trigger other events and it's like a snowball rolling down a hill.The huge event of losing my husband nearly 2 years ago to cancer continually ripples through my life. Having additional people to be accountable to will keep me on the path to greater things. The light from others on this path will illuminate MY path as well and there is so much to learn and respond to.

I returned to a team that I know very well. They were my support for close to 10 years! To come back to familiar faces and names is truly to be welcomed home like a long lost prodigal or relative. This band of SISTAS are truly my friends. (sorry guys, not any on there right now)

I am deeply committed to not wasting any more time on my life journey regarding weight! This life is too wonderful to keep giving over my energy to a diet mindset! NO MORE! I am grasping on to what works for me and for my health. Mid 2018 I did a health experiment on myself to see if I could lower my kidney function numbers by tweaking my nutrition a bit more. I stopped eating all animal products. My Uric Acid numbers went to normal...the first time I can ever remember and I felt amazing.No Vegan processed foods either. Therefore I am committed to following this through and even improving it. Feeling this good is something I want to keep!!

That brings me to transformation! I am seeing this happening to me. From September of 2017 to now I have been evolving, transforming into a new me. A lot of that is due to a willingness to be whole again and live a full life. Being broken into pieces after the sorrow of my husband dying and the numbness of the word widow, I have been made rich again. God has put amazing people in my path and through their support, wisdom, caring and love I am the happy vibrant person I am today.

It feels good to be a butterfly!

    Awesome blog!! You're transforming for sure!

    Honestly, I really really miss you and the CAMO crew!! 2018 was the worst year for me and then ended with my grandma and mother in law dying a week a part. My husband is always working my family has all died. No friends, I'm mostly alone with my kids, almost a single mom. It's very hard and I'm very broken. Hopefully someday I can transform and maybe return CAMO too! I really miss CAMO!!
