KELCARD1 is a beautiful woman! She underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2008 and has lost an immense amount of weight, but that doesn't define her! I am excited to get to know her better!

I read DARLOUDASHA's intro and she's working really hard to change her negative voices. I really admire her for that.

I read a comment you made on someone's blog :"Have patient with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them- everyday start the task anew."

I think that was a really amazing thing to say. I hope that it is okay for me to use that as a compliment to you :)

Thank you IZZYBEBOP. I loved reading more about you on your page and I see you are very talented. Scrapbooking is a great talent and your pictures are very pretty done that way. We both love the lord and our cats and her dog. Animal lovers are special people, I believe.

IZZY always has something nice to say about everyone. I admire that in her.

I went to visit ANGELBELIEVER (Elayne Mae) and found out that she's reached her goal weight. She's a devout Chrisitian and loves cats, especially her Thor. She has a lot written on her page, and well worth visiting.
She has lots of photos on her page, and Elayne and Arjay have a beautiful 1964 Chevy Corvair Monza.

Thanks for the complement Jem. Never though of myself as an angel...But many of my friends both here on Spark and off of Spark are angels. You're included in that as well.

Hi Sherry. I just stopped by your page and love the bright color of blue. Your M&M people are cute and I love the one stretching. I learned about the apple from your page.You seem to be very gifted in many ways. The cake you made is so cute. Have a great day.

Donna, belated congrats on the daughter's graduation and you walking more, and thanks for your comments to and about Susan. She is a wonderful SP person, leader and motivator, even though she probably doesn't realize it.

I love the colors on your page and your attitude about walking/moving more. I'm a little behind you [or something to that effect :)] because I'd like to be at 172. Hah! Eventually, I, too would like to get to around 150. That would be less than I weighed when I got married 30 years ago. Man, that sounds like a l-o-n-g time. I sure don't want to take 30 years to lose the 45 pounds I gained. Let's do this!

Well, I stopped by & visited Izzybebop's page, found it to be positive with her outlook & goals! emoticon emoticon I see she had a fond love of her pets --1 blue healer dog & several beautiful cats. Also noted that she owns her own design publication company --she is into scrapbooking & photography as well. She seems to be quite a busy lady!

I've known JAKEANDNELLIE (Sheila) for quite a while, and we shared co-leading a SP Class Team for a year. Learned she just recently lost 2 pounds! emoticon She has two cats, and Peaches, who I like to call the Angel dog because she just appeared and keeps her mom company, as well as going on walks with Sheila and SPHAPPYHIKER through the many parks in her area. You should visit some of her walking blogs as she has wonderful photos on them.

I had a great visit to CONICONSTANCE’s page! Her goals to live a healthy and active life are truly inspiring! She is interested in trying scrapbooking and loves to watch movies. I’m with her about the movies - scrapbooking not so much. She has a beautiful daughter and a beautiful picture of Zoe learning to surf. (They live in Florida.) I loved her pic of the Polar Plunge - but it certainly looked different from the one that takes place in January here in NE Ohio!

Upon a visit to WINTERRAIN'S page I saw two of the prettiest little girls, I know she must be such a proud momma! I also learned that like myself she does her workouts at home so I sent her a "jumprope" goodie to add to her routine, of course her oldest daughter would be a great fitness companion for the jumprope session.

I stopped in and learned some neat things about DBELLE39. She has some great and well-articulated goals to help her stay on track. Because she has 5 sweet, young children that surely keep her busy, I thought she could use some time with her feet up, listening to some relaxation music. Hope she enjoys the goodie!

Just check out DBELLE... what cutie pie grandkids she has!! And she has a brand new one who wasn't real sure of this "eating" thing, but seems to have caught on just fine and is coming home. Congrats!!! Donna seems to me to be a strong, loving woman, and I'm so glad she wants to lose a little weight so that I could get the chance to "meet" her!

I checked out Donna's (DBELLE39) page and highly recommend a peek at her pictures. Not only is she a wonderfully family oriented person but also a great goal setter, looking forward toward 2011 to fulfill some of what she has planned for her life. She obviously has a knack for beautiful things too since her page decorations are very lovely!

I enjoyed the visit and am glad I joined A&I Spark Team to meet people like her!

Go Donna!!!

Tammy (IAMALIGHTHOUSE) is, in my opinion, an amazing person. She always has time to say something positive and a willingness to reach out. She is a very strong person who is able to handle a lot in her life. Despite frustrations, she never gives up and is always here to lend support to the next person.

Go Tammy!!

WINTERRAIN (Debbie) really loves life and is doing everything she can to make sure she lives a good healthy one which! Her motivations are herself, her family and all those she loves. I can't think of anything better than that for a reason to do better. She also loves yoga which is cool because I do to!

Yea! Go Debbie!!!

ALEXANDRA64 loves life and is learning to listen to her body. She realized that in order to be healthy it isn't just about working on your body but also your mind.

Congrats on getting a bigger place and realizing how important it is to take care of yourself both physically and mentally!

I am learning that Frida is a devoted cyclist! She also has an artistic streak in her with ceramics.

Good for you Frida for staying so active and as well as being an active part of this community! I love the ceramic relief wallhanging you are working on. Or, perhaps you have finished it?

Well It is me again. And thank you.
I believe it will be possible for you to regain your slim body as you are young.
Of course it costs an effort. When I was 19 I lost 13 kg in 1½ year by detecting what food I liked - which is healthy and changing the diet - so I got what I needed with fewest calories.
I stayed slim in 25 years!
It also helped that my father gave me 1 English pound for each pound I lost until my goal. Maybe you can get someone to sponsor your efforts??!

Winterrain sure loves nature.
Walking, running, or bicycling in nature certainly gives a good opportunity to exercise

I found out Rena1965 lives in Denmark. So do I. So I gave a bicycle as a spark goodie as almost everybody in Denmark bicycles.
You have already done a big job. I also wonder why some people have too high cholesterol. I don´t but I weigh 19 kg too much. I don´t have too high a blood pressure either.
Maybe I eat healthily or do something good for those things.. ?

Okay, everyone, here's how this works.

I am making the first post to this thread. The next person to post should first go to my SparkPage (it's linked to the left of the post) and either leave me a comment or send me a Spark Goodie. Then come back and post a reply saying that you fulfilled the requirements. The next person will go to your page, leave you a comment or a Spark Goodie, and then post a reply to your post saying that they've done so.

I think this will be a great and fun way to get to know each other, because we'll be visiting each other's Spark Pages and maybe reading blogs and stuff - maybe we'll find new buddies and everything!

So... who's next?

Peace & Blessings!
