Writing a Better Life

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a dreamer, but one thing I've discovered I don't need to dream is the ability to lose weight. After struggling for years and trying several programs, I was beginning to believe it would never happen. Using the tools here, I've started dropping the pounds -- finally and very happily!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a dreamer, but one thing I've discovered I don't need to dream is the ability to lose weight. After struggling for years and trying several programs, I was beginning to believe it would never happen. Using the tools here, I've started dropping the pounds -- finally and very happily!

I live in Michigan where I'm married with two kids and a wild little puppy. I became a vegetarian in 2013. I've now adopted a nearly complete plant-based diet. I make an exception for cheese one time a week.

I really am a dreamer for my job. I'm a full-time, multi-published author. In addition to this, I love to cook, travel, take walks and spend time outdoors (as long as it's not too hot!)

I love to meet people and I'm looking forward to getting to know my new SparkFriends!

I tried to climb the mountain today. As I inched my way up the path, I felt out of breath and had to turn back.
I tried to climb the mountain today. But, It was so hot outside, I thought I had better stay in my nice air-conditioned house and rest up for tomorrow's attempt.
I tried to climb the mountain today. On my journey, darkness started to fall and I was full of fear, so I had to return to a safe place.
I was ready to climb the mountain today. But I had so may other things to do, so instead of climbing the mountain I took care of the much more important tasks; I washed my car, mowed the grass and watched the big game. Today the mountain will have to wait.
I was going to climb the mountain today. But as I stared at the mountain in all it's majestic beauty, I knew I had no chance of making it to the top, so I figured why even begin trying.
I had forgotten about climbing the mountain today, until an old friend came by and asked what I was up to lately. I told him about all my plans to climb that mountain someday. I went on and on about how I was going to accomplish the task.
He stopped me and said, "I just got back from climbing that mountain. for the longest time I told myself I was going to try to climb it but never made any progress."
"I almost let the dream of making it to the top die. I came up with every excuse of why I could not make it up the mountain, but never once did I give myself a reason why I could. One day as I stared at the mountain and pondered, I realized that if I didn't make an attempt at this dream all my dreams would eventually die."
" The next morning, I started my climb. It was not easy, and at times I wanted to quit. But no matter what I faced, I placed one foot in front of the other, keeping a steady pace. When the wind tried to blow me over the edge, I kept walking. When the voices inside my head screamed, stop! I focused on my goal, never letting it out of sight. I kept moving forward. I could not quit because I knew I had come too far to stop now. Time and time again, I reassured myself that I was going to finish this journey. I struggled mightily to make it to the top, but I CLIMBED THE MOUNTAIN."
"I have to be going," my friend said. "Tomorrow is a new day to accomplish more dreams. By the way what are you going to do tomorrow?"
I looked at him, with intensity and confidence in my eyes, and said, "I HAVE A MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB."

Weight loss is NOT a physical challenge, it's a MENTAL one.
