I seem to have been at Sparkpeople.com for such a long time. I have had moments of clarity about my weight, my eating habits and about the things that motivate me. I have learned many new things about taking care of myself by eating healthy, balanced meals and makig fitness a part of my life.

I seem to have been at Sparkpeople.com for such a long time. I have had moments of clarity about my weight, my eating habits and about the things that motivate me. I have learned many new things about taking care of myself by eating healthy, balanced meals and makig fitness a part of my life. I also discovered that I give up on me long before others and I am harder on me than others. I have come to understand that it is not a choice that I have as to whether or not I want to be here. It has become a matter of life that I remain here and continue to take this journey one step at a time. There is no possible success for me if I turn back or stop. I can give in, give up or give it my all.

This will not be easy. But I will not give up.

Thanks for the goodie! I'm heading home today to my jacuzzi and relaxing music - sore muscles! emoticon

Hope the winding down of the school year isn't too hectic.

Just thought I'd drop in to say hello. Very excited to work hard with you over the next 12 weeks in BLC28 as one of your fellow Bronze Wellness Warriors. "The difference between TRY and TRIUMPH is just a little umph!" -- Marvin Phillips

I hurt my back years ago so I know how it is trying to strengthen it without doing any further damage. There was a time when doctors told me I would always be a cripple but I decided "Not Me" and so I'm not. Enjoy dancing and welcome to the Dance Like Nobody is Looking team.

Thanks, Cassie, for your goodie and your support. This has been the most difficult thing I've ever had to do........but knowing my dear Mom is no longer suffering brings me peace as well. I appreciate you.
