Fall, 2014 - Welcome to my SparkPage! I have now been a "sparker" for over 7 years!

After struggling with my up and down weight for 6 of those years, I am now at a healthy maintenance weight. I joined Overeaters Anonymous 15 months ago and discovered that I am a compulsive overeater. I am powerless over food, and need God's help to stay away from binging and compulsively eating.

Fall, 2014 - Welcome to my SparkPage! I have now been a "sparker" for over 7 years!

After struggling with my up and down weight for 6 of those years, I am now at a healthy maintenance weight. I joined Overeaters Anonymous 15 months ago and discovered that I am a compulsive overeater. I am powerless over food, and need God's help to stay away from binging and compulsively eating.

I am now working the 12 Steps with the help of God, my sponsor, and my regular meeting group. I have learnt so much about myself and God this past year! And I am on my way to changing, not just my shape and my size, but also my whole life.

One Day at a Time.

Wow, it's a brand new day, that is a gift given to you, a gift to enjoy and discover exactly what special miracles are in it just for you.

Oh, you get so caught up in all the attitude and mind set around us, that you do not see the real beauty that around in each day. We live in a country were we have freedom. I've been in several countries where I had to be very careful and aware of everything I did. I soon realized how great it was back home with true freedom. I am especially joyful because I can walk again. It may not be as well as I could before, but I can walk, just no running this time. And to have a mind that can figure out things, remember things and hold onto memories...wow, that is awesome.

Today I hope you take the time to see and discover all the special miracles that are in your day. You see, it's not about what we don't have, it's about what you do have. What is right there in front of you, all around you. Don't rob yourself of all the beauty in joy that is in today. Instead find it, embrace it and cherish it in your memories. Enjoy your special gift of today.

Oh, don't forget, I am grateful for the gift of your friendship and that's why I stopped by. Hugs!
