September Top 3 Priorities 1. Balance 2. Accountability 3. Consistency I am 52 married, and live in California with my husband and my rescue pets, I also live with multiple health issues, a number of which are chronic (read incurable). I didn't join spark to fit into a bikini, become a gym rat, or run a marathon. After spending 3 1/2 months in bed this winter feeling sick and miserable, I decided that I had enough. I'm here to find a balance in my life. To be as healthy as I can be, and to enjoy my next 50 years the best that I can. If this sounds familiar, please friend me so we can encourage each other along the way. 6/13/17: Signed up for 2017 Summer Challenge.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    I recognized your cry for help as I've struggled with the very same issues. Letting Go is such a difficult thing to do but, it really is worth it. The freedom we gain from letting others take responsibility for themselves is insurmountable.
