"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence. Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements. You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward. Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine." -- Ralph Marston
Hope your week is going great, Spark friend! Keep taking those steps towards your goals. Never give up! As long as you keep going, you will succeed. You are always worth your best effort! Hugs, Pixie
Hope you get that job you want. I'm sure that Alaskan lifestyle is not doing anything positive for your weight loss and exercise program. I have the same problem to a lesser degree. Every summer I lose weight; every winter I gain most or all of it back. Having SAD doesn't help, since that makes me crave carbs.
