Southern Girl

Hi! I am Lisa. I am married to a wonderful man and have a terrific son. They are my entire world and this journey is for them as much as it is for me.
I started my Spark People journey because now that I am in my 40's, I am no longer slim and fit.
I want to be healthy and fit. I want to feel good about myself. I want to be comfortable in my clothes. But, more importantly, I want to set a good example for my son.

I think SP had that article up recently. It said the water would keep that tired feeling at bay.

Hey, you're not the only one that could use all the help she can get! But it's a tradeoff: I really do not relish being up from bed every 25 minutes or so. So, I have to get at least six glasses (WW used to say 6 to 8, which is fine by me to start), well in before mid-afternoon, methinks, but that makes the task of drinking all that over a shorter period of time, for me, difficult. What to do? What to do?

My 97-year old aunt, who passed away recently, said that she always had three glasses of water (this was waaaaaay before all the medical documentation) at each meal. Whoa! Explains why she was not "foggy" as you say, in the end. Lisa, she was still reciting poems from memory that she learned in school, the last week of her life. She was a force to be reckoned with!

But actually water is much easier in the summer. It's the pacing, too, that gets me. Cannot have it too late in the day or the night gets messed up. But I definitely do see the improvement in digestion.

Actually, I'm going to reread "TKaM" after this one. As it was originally intended. Either way, I'm trying to understand the dramatic sea changes that have been reported in the press about the characters. Should prove to be an interesting evening.

This version, in spite of what has been written, and the sections lifted intact (which really saddened me), holds up pretty well. There are sections that are extremely well-written. Some sections could use more editing, but all in all, not bad at all. I was expecting much worse.

I still would like to know what my early teen self thought "TKaM" was all about. "She" and I really need to have a chat!

I like the quote, too. It's really about persistence and creating sustainable habits. "Sustainable", I think is the operative word.

I see what you "gone and did". I kinda thought that was what you meant, then I considered maybe you went to reserve the book from your library.

Years ago, I participated in an online community that AOL had and I created a "cyberbook club" there. It was a bit of a challenge to create a date and time accommodating the groups' four time zones, but it worked! We opened a virtual room and did it with instant messenger. Nineteen people came and we read "Tuesdays With Morrie".

SP doesn't have that capability, but I think if we post in "real time" at the agreed hour, it should work pretty much the same way as the last time I did this.

I'm really looking forward to this. And then I have to reread "To Kill A Mockingbird", because for the life of me, I have no idea what I might have thought the book was about as an early teenager. But even reading "Watchman" it is lovely to revisit these beloved characters. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil it for you.

Welcome aboard!
