Taking a Stand

I'm taking a stand. All the hollow intentions of "dieting" are done, and I'm willing to make some changes for life.

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Now I'm ready to shut up and learn, ready to do the work that getting healthier will ...
I'm taking a stand. All the hollow intentions of "dieting" are done, and I'm willing to make some changes for life.

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Now I'm ready to shut up and learn, ready to do the work that getting healthier will take. I'm done with the "tomorrow" goals, and committed to the "right now." I'm excited about the change, and very grateful for this gift called Spark People. Thanks for being there, everyone - I'm learning every day from each of you.

I had no idea how much the good information, support and encouragement would mean to me - you folks are amazing. Let's DO THIS!

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung..

I'm the idiot that saw quinoa and pronounced it kwinoah to one of my daughters..oh my! keenwah...keenwah..kenwah...

(I taught my kids when working on their spelling lists, go through the list and figure out which ones you know which ones you don't. The ones you don't, write out 3 times. Redo the whole list. If you still don't know them, then right the ones you don't out 7 times, repeat until you OWN those words..no one can take that knowledge from you. So how rich will you be with words?) :)

Thank you so much for the wings! I'll need all the help that I can get to get there :)...Stubborn and rebellious? I pray that you had the freedom to express it. Introversion of those qualities is not the healthiest, and can make you a freak amongst friends when you don't react normally let alone be able to voice it. Maybe in some ways we will together bring a balance to our little cosmos LOL

And thank you so much for the comment on my blog!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for checking out my blog. I just happen to have some pictures of how the landscaping used to and should look. LOL Maybe I will post those when I finish with the pictures of my visit to the coast.
Hope you are having a great week!

Thanks for dropping by & leaving a comment. I do need to celebrate what I am accomplishing, and stop feeling so bad about what I'm not accomplishing!
