Constant creative progress -not perfection

I'm here to improve my health by developing better eating and exercise habits with the encouragement & support of the Spark community, my friends and family. I'd also like to start reinserting more creativity back into my life as well (especially, music, dancing, and art).

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO" ...

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO"

which essentially means :

"THE DROP OF WATER HOLLOWS OUT THE STONE BY FREQUENT DROPPING, NOT BY FORCE; CONSTANT PERSISTENCE GAINS IN THE END."

These words inspired me to think about becoming a steady, constant drop of water in my own life, and the lives of my family and friends. Water can be so many things: refreshing, cleansing, energizing, powerful and basically the essence of life itself. Thanks for being a part of my journey.


- FINALLY GETTING STARTED, March 1, 2009 (270#)

When I first created my SparkPage, I thought I needed to post the clip of the little fat, sleeping gopher with the statement

"I WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE. IF I COULD JUST GET STARTED."

So I got started with SparkPeople with long term goal of achieving a balanced healthy lifestyle. I weighed in at 270#, set a short term goal of 255# and long term goal of 125#. Well I reached my 1st short term weight goal of 255# on 5/28/09. Thanks to SparkGuy for conceiving this little gem and to all my "SparkPeeps" who have and will encourage me along the way.

Love Yah!

Hi, I see that you are in WV. I'm retired in the eastern panhandle and glad to know another sparker here.

Wish you success in your spark journey. Hoping our paths will cross on SP.

West Virginia is a beautiful place to be!

They're back together now, and I sure hope he still does good! I'm afraid the way she cooks for him and always has goodies in the house to eat, he will be right back where he was in no time.

Thanks, but I haven't really started it at all yet;(
I did intend to, and I have started walking a little bit here and there, but I haven't done anything on that team yet.

This Squid Baby thanks you very much for the goodie. Just haven't been able to sit on the computer for a couple of days like I used with these allergies making my eyes itch and water. Have loved astronomy since I was 6. Hopefully you guys get to go hunting. You gotta let me know if you do.
