Welcome to My Page!!!

Here's my New Year's Prayer:

Now I sit me down to eat,
I pray the Lord I will not cheat.
If I should reach for cake or bread
please guide my hand to greens instead!
But help me Lord, if I indulge
and lose the Battle of the Bulge,
to understand that ounce for ounce,
It's Who I Am
That Really Counts!

I'm a yo-yo dieter who's on the road to break that awful habit! No more diets for me, just a lifechange that will start slow at first, taking one goal at a time until I have that as a life habit. Then I'll move on to the next goal and so on! I can overcome and will overcome!

A few months ago, when I went for my 6 month check-up, I got a wake up call. My blood sugar was "a little high," my dr said. Since then, I was confirmed I am pre-diabetic. Now I have a meter and am trying to lower my blood sugar levels.
Since diabetes runs in my family, (both my mom & oldest sister had diabetes) I am taking this serious and working on a few helps I've found.

So with the help of Spark People, I will get to my goal weight and get a healthier body in the process!!!

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ WHAT I'VE LEARNED ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that making a "living" is not the same as making a "life".
I've learned that life gives you a second chance. emoticon
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands, you need to be able to throw something back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. emoticon
I've learned that even if I have pains, I don't have to be one. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that I have a lot to learn. emoticon

I hope that all of us can learn, not only today, but each and everyday!!
~~ One thing I've learned is that in order to have a friend, you have to be one.~~

Wishing you a """Wonderful Weekend"""
Lots of ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & SMILES!!
