my SERIOUS SISTERS & SPARKPEOPLE are saving my life.

I HAVE LOST 100+ pounds on SparkPeople!
My journey with SparkPeople began in May 2009 when I weighed somewhere around (more than but the scale didn't go that high) 475+ pounds. Thanks to water aerobics & swimming, I am healthier today than I have been in years. I not only participate but I teach WA & swim classes daily. Exercise in the water is the BEST way for me to lose weight & stay healthy without too much pain.

I'm working on my emotional eating issues with a therapist and EATING to LIVE instead of living to eat. I feel better than I have in years. One day at a time, my life is changing for the better

I am PASSIONATE about leading the ROCKIN' RED FOXES BLC team FAMILY.
I am also involved in an awesome private Spark Team that helps me with my program. The team is called: FRIENDly Persuasion: a safe haven for friends It is a "friendship" team that provides a stress-free environment for loving, inspiring & supporting one another. If you are interested in joining me, on either team, send me a Spark Msg & I'll send you an invite.

    The Wave is the LifePro Waver Vibration Plate Exercise Machine. A whole body workout vibration fitness platform w/loop bands. It's to help build muscle and improve your fitness and flexibility. The Waver is a full-body vibration that stimulates musculature causing extra muscle contraction and increased activation at all stages of your workout. It's to boost your metabolism and improve circulation to release fluid, increase bone density & suppress joint stress levels. It has resistance bands. Depending on the exercises you do you work both the upper and lower body. You can also sit in a chair and use it. You start out slow and work up to you are able to stand on it and do exercise. I'm now able to stand and do exercise programs. Was able to watch a zoom class today. Some people claim it will tone your body and help you lose weight. Sometimes it feels good and other times it feels like it's pounding my body. It's to help people with Lipoedema and Lymphedema. I have both. At first, I felt dizzy using it and now able to exercise more easily.
