My name is Faye and as my Spark name states I am OVERWEIGHT. I can only state that 3 times in my life have I been at my right weight. The summer before 12 th grade my mother let me go to our family doctor to get medicine to help. I wish I could do that again. I was so proud. The weight came back later plus more. I wasted so many years of my life because I was fat. I didn't want to do anything that would draw attention to me. I now know I would have done things differently. Anyone reading this... Know what matters in life. Your weight is not who you are so do everything in life that you want to do. Weight is important for your health. Overweight is bad for your heart, knees, state of mind, and more. It's great to have Sparkpeople so you can have support and encouragement for the road ahead of you. I have a lot of weight to lose but in the meantime I have a loving husband, 5 children, 18 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and one on the way. I love babies and seeing all their energy. I just need to learn how to bottle the excess energy and sell it. Instance millionaire!!! LOL

    Thanks for the kettle bells. I’m sure they’ll come in handy next time too!

    Thanks for the goodie. Venting is a good thing. Letting things build up to a boiling point is bad and one unhealthy reaction is overeating. That's why we want our team to be a safe place to express ourselves. emoticon

    Hello my new friend!

    Thank you so much for popping by my page with your lovely comment. I will miss Sparkworld fiercely! I have been on here since 2009 where I blogged my heart out over the loss of our only child in 2006. To go back and read those blogs you would have guessed that even 3 years later the death had just occurred. It was just as raw and horrifying as if it had just happened. But my sparky friends were rocks for me and supported me and listened to my woes and gave me encouragement at every turn.

    Then in 2019 the unthinkable happened and I lost my wonderful hubby and business partner of 42 years...I just didn't even want to continue living at that time.

    But my wonderful friends here in FL supported me and again my sparky friends came through and I found my feet.

    Now almost two years later the 27th of this month I have lost 63 pounds and a new wonderful widower man who is the answer to my dreams and prayers. He was married for 47 years and supported his wife through Parkinsons and Dementia.

    He is a remarkable human being and we are happier than anyone can imagine in our new relationship.

    I think you lost your husband too? Did I read that?

    If so I'm sending love and light to you! Never give up on yourself...I'll be cheering you on!!
