Governmentality

Well, I've been here for awhile now and think that I want SparkPeople as part of my life.

I'm 40 years old, married with three beautiful children - two sons and baby girl. Recently, life has been hard and when I started SparkPeople, I did so because my weight seemed to be something I could control in a world where everything was out of control.

I've come to believe that working on my weight is a learning process for working on my life. So far the lesson has been to be ...
Well, I've been here for awhile now and think that I want SparkPeople as part of my life.

I'm 40 years old, married with three beautiful children - two sons and baby girl. Recently, life has been hard and when I started SparkPeople, I did so because my weight seemed to be something I could control in a world where everything was out of control.

I've come to believe that working on my weight is a learning process for working on my life. So far the lesson has been to be steady, slow and consistent. I'm celebrating minor victories because every victory counts. I'm getting rid of my "fat" clothes because I won't need them again. I'm accepting where I am without giving up where I want to be.

Otherwise, I still struggle every day but now I value the struggle instead of just the successes.

"Between a philosophy of transcendence that situates the true life to which man, escaping from here, would gain access in the privileged moments of liturgical, mystical elevation, or in dying - and a philosophy of immanence in which we would truly come into possession of being when every 'other' (cause of war), encompassed by the same, would vanish at the end of history - we propose to describe, within the unfolding of terrestrial existence, of economic existence (as we shall call it), a relationship with the other that does not result in a divine or human totality, that is not a totalization of history but the idea of infinity. Such a relationship is metaphysics itself." ~ Levinas

Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.

What a beautiful page you have!

I have actually found I like the flax seed. I love granola and it is similar enough to pass for me. I didn't pass something yesterday so I am going back to Day 1 and adding them in on at a time. So no chocolate for me tonight emoticon
