GNUATTITUDE is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Having lived more than half a century, I've finally learned that my attitude creates a lot of my experience.
My daily prayer is:
Teach me to love as You love
To forgive as You forgive
To see myself and others as You see us
And to boldly walk the path You have set before me.
My goal is to continue to make small but positive and lasting lifestyle changes. At the moment, most of my objectives involve weight loss, improved fitness and self-esteem. My desire is to find balance in the spiritual, physical, professional, and social areas of my life.
I'm tracking water, following the SP diabetic food plan, practicing daily prayer and meditation, and learning the fine art of positive self-talk.

Thank you so much for the goodie! I had knee surgery and have developed massive blood clots in my lungs and legs. I am still in ICU but doing much better. I really appreciate it!

So sweet to hear from you. I was just looking at the Sass group information. I considered deleted the group. It is marked as inactive. I left it for now.
Glad to hear of your progress. This past year I lost, gained, and lost again 30 lbs. As I go into winter, I'm hoping to establish new habits. I've already noticed that in the cool evening I'm craving stuff. Especially watching a movie.

Thank you very much for the Goodie! I turned 58 in February! 1955...it was a good year. My mother has been very ill since the beginning of April. The stress and stress eating is taking it's toll on me. I finally got to the point where I realize that I must take better care of myself. I'll keep in touch.
