Gotta Feel The Book In My Hands

My name is Maria and I've been missing my old body. Thanks for checking out my Spark page, friends! I am 47, wife to my BFF hero hubby and mom of two sweet and sometimes challenging daughters, their ages 25 and 22. We have two dogs, a lab and a JRT. God has given me this amazing life. Thanks to Him I am a sober alcoholic with four years of sobriety. The one thing that I'm still not ready to change, however, is giving up paper books for Kindle or Nook. I just can't.

I am 47, wife to my BFF hero hubby and mom of two sweet and sometimes challenging daughters, their ages 25 and 22. We have two dogs, a lab and a JRT. God has given me this amazing life. Thanks to Him I am a sober alcoholic with four years of sobriety. The one thing that I'm still not ready to change, however, is giving up paper books for Kindle or Nook. I just can't. I still the love the smell of the inside of a bookstore and I gotta feel the actual book in my hands ;-)

ABOUT MY BODY

I want my college body back. I was eating everything sweet and delicious I could get my hands on. I was beginning to balloon. I did NOT like looking at what I was seeing in the mirror. We never know when the bulb is gonna click on in our head and we say NO MORE. TODAY IS THE BEGINNING OF THE REST OF MY LIFE. That happened for me on November 27, 2013, the day I joined Spark People. Thanksgiving food did not distract me. I've become a woman on a SparkPeople mission. Thank God for this awesome site! I love the people here, I love the points, I love the well thought out site set up! Let's do this, Sparkies! Woot! :-)

Thanks for stopping by. I agree with the books ... nothing like the smell of a good book. Though, I have to admit to caving to the kindle, tough I still read a hard copy book when I get my hands on one. Keep on being such an amazing motivator.

Your comment made me smile. Thanks.
I feel the same way about books vs Kindles. The feel, the smell, letting the pages fan through my fingers. And I think they're easier to read, too.
