Well what have you got to lose

So trying again, after the millionth time! Surely something in my brain has to click eventually! I've got lots of weight to lose, and lots to gain - I'm not ready to give up on this yet.

Thanks for the blog love on my Got The Low Down Blues post. It amazes me how one can slip into self pity when a solution is so easy.

Thank you for your comment on my "ballerina" pic. I find these cute little things on Pinterest (Pam Daniels-Barber is my Pinterest page.)

Oh! Your photos are stunning! and Dex is adorable. What a hunk-0-dog!

Thank you for the bloglove on my post 75 Days Does Not A Habit Make. I'm proud to say I did get outside with those doggies and took a tiny walk. That's enough to count because life really does make other demands. the funny thing is that only a week ago I had begun to think I really had formed a habit - that I had quit waking up thinking "it's all too much I can't do this" ah well. It's all about being conscious, right? Being present - being here. And that is all good.

And thank you for the compliments about my furbabies. They are so spoiled. They think they let us get up in the big bed!

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett
I am turning over a new leaf, thanks to the support of my Sparkfriends! I appreciate your comment on my blog, "Coming Out Of Hiding." Have a healthy week!
