SparkPoints: 48,623

Fitness Minutes: 3,650

My Goals:
My main goal is to be healthy in body and spirit so that I can live the right kind of life.

My Program:
Eat properly. Forget about food at the end of every meal. Weigh once a week. Do not obsess. Do not limit life in any way because of body size.

Personal Information:
I'm from a tiny town in Georgia (with no traffic lights), but now I live in Kobe, Japan. I'm married to a Japanese and have three bilingual, bicultural children--a son, 26, a daughter, 24, and a daughter, 19. I teach English to Japanese company workers, 99% of whom are men. I like my job.

Other Information:
I love reading. One of my favorite books is Fred Chappell's novel "Brighten the Corner Where You Are." And if I could state my philosophy, the title of that book would be IT!

Being a middle child myself, I know it can be tough growing up. But if someone would ask me what I would tell my mother if I had the chance, what I wish she would of done differently raising me. And to be the honest truth, I would have to answer, "really nothing I would of wished she would of done differently." You see, I figure that the middle child does struggle a tad more growing up. But I also feel that we are much stronger, wiser, positive self-confidence and more motivated than the older and younger sibling grown up. The harder it is in life, the more you learn, adjust, deal with situations in the growing years. My sisters had it much easier. It wasn't fun for me at all.
I am glad I am the middle. I am the "odd man out" so to speak. I am different and my brain works on a complete opposite side than my two sisters. I wouldn't change it if I could. Hugs, Carolyn.

"I'll just try to take your lead and get more serious about my own closet and too-small, out-of-fashion, dust-gathering clothes!"

And that is what I did in Jane's closet. PURGE! Okay Carolyn, now it is your turn. Three piles, remember?
1. Toss
2. donate
3. keep (only the clothes that fit and that you wear.)

I know you can do it! Keep me posted. Hugs sweet friend, fredie

Hi Carolyn, thank you as always for reading and commenting on my BLOGS. yes, Brian and I are up to it again. Painting and getting things ready for summer. After we paint the kitchen, we do my computer room, and then the back deck.
Hoping the contractors will start on the front porch shortly and everything will be complete before my friends from Scotland arrive in June.
Sending best wishes to you for a fabulous week.
Hugs Susan emoticon
