I have finally been kicked in the butt. My father, only 55 years old, died February 16, 2012 of pancreatic cancer. He was diagnosed only a month and a half before he passed away. Before he left this world, he reminded me that life is a beautiful gift. He truly was the one person I could trust, count on, and confide in. He gave great advice, and he always told me how much he loved me and how proud of me he was. It truly broke my heart and soul when he died.

I have been sitting back in the passenger seat watching my life slip away. I have always had a little "extra" weight on me....but right around when my dad died, I was at my heaviest. I am going to lose weight for my dad and myself. I want to accomplish so many things for him...because he didn't get the chance to....and this is the first step in accomplishing those goals.

    thanks for your post on my page and your kindness in sending me the sparkgoodie "sunshine" :). I haven't lost any weight recently but tomorrow morning I begin my aerobics dvds again after a long time away. I've been meditating which is helping me a lot. And I'm looking forward to getting back on track. This has been a long weekend for us up here in Canada, but tomorrow morning I will excercise before I go to work :) Good luck with your new goal to work towards for July 27.

    Hi there, sorry I disappeared for a little while, I was moping about a guy I broke up with but then have gone on 4 first dates, the last one being a really nice guy that I've decided to see again :) I managed to workout a few times at the gym at my work over lunch, and am trying to stay on track as we head towards Christmas.LOL. How is everything with you? As soon as I can I'm going to read everyone's blogs to see what has been happening with everyone....
    Thank you so very much for the sparkgoodie!!!!!!!
