Hi my name is Celeste'.
Sparks has taught me about calories and exercise which are a BIG part of fixing the problem. I did well with this.

However, this year I have to come in from a different angle, one where I dont let male compliments send me scurrying back to emotional safety of fat layers. I have to tell myself they are just that "compliments" not molestation proposals. Emotional scars run deep, but not so deep that they cant be fixed. Well Im hoping that statement ...

SparkPoints: 28,405

Fitness Minutes: 5,630

My Goals:
I only have two goals this year.

1) To arm myself against fear of being complimented and gaining the weight again.

2) Taking time for myself and making others responsible for themselves in every facit of life.

My Program:
I've changed to eating healthy foods.
Very much smaller portions but more often.


Personal Information:
I have happily been one of Jehovah's Witnesses since 1975.
I live in a little but beautiful town called George in South Africa.
I moved here 20 years ago and want to live no where else.
I met my beloved husband here, and for me that rates George in my very good books.


Other Information:
I love learning new things esp relating to health.
I currently do iridology, reflexology, acupressure and massage therapy. My interest in medicine began when I nursed my younger sister till her death with colon cancer. Its a case of wish I knew then what I know now, but cant turn back the hands of time.

Hi Celest,
I had to smile,
no, I havn't retired from teaching, I was her Bible study "teacher".
My husband and I have worked with many peopled to help them learn about Jehovah:-) He served a small congregation for 33 years where we raised our 4 children.
I really enjoyed reading some of your past blogs, you are a lovely person:-) You obviously encourage many!
I hope you have a wonderful day! (evening?)

Good Morning Celest,
I was baptized in November 1975. I got baptized at the first assembly of the new assembly hall in Madera California.
My husband and I met while both working on the site-the rest is history:-)

Hi Celeste. I truly don't know about coming off of the insulin or not. It's as much a mystery to me as it is to you. I ahve been the only family member on oral meds for diabetes. mom, dad, twin sisters and brother all were insulin dependent. I did well. I ahve Myasthenia Gravis and my limbs are getting weaker making exercise harder for me.
