Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

She will be 18 about the same time.

    Stay positive despite all of the negativity around you. The things you're praying and hoping for, tend to arrive at the most unexpected moments.

    No idea what the scan might have shown. It was just done today and I won't get results until my provider is given them. She'll combine that with the extra blood tests she ordered that were requested due to some questions she asked me and feeling like my thyroid didn't feel quite right upon physical examination. However, I'd never seen her before so not sure if its because she hadn't felt it before or if something is truly up with it now. She must not be too concerned though because I had up to 90 days to get the scan done.

    Thank you for the Spark goodie water bottle. I find carbonated plain water a good alternative to soda.

    I tried to post a pic of the puzzle I am doing now and somewhere along the way in the past settings on my computer changed . My page is huge, I have to scrool to go from side to side. Not sure if an update did it or if I did..but it is a pain to navigate. I do online puzzles due to the cats constantly losing or eating puzzle pieces. I have not forgotten about the ones for you..I just am moving like a turtle in a pond of peanut butter for some reason.
