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.

    I think my over-developed sense of responsibility kicked in - too many years teaching, emoticon

    Fortunately my brother is now at home recovering but since he's not exactly a "follow the doctor's directions" kind of guy our family is collectively holding its breath.

    Make the most of your remaining vacation. emoticon

    Hi Cassie,
    Thank you so much for meeting me here!!
    Wow it had been a wild emoticon morning.
    I just flew in from seeing Pat, I had some blueberries and a peach as my inflight snack so I'm good for now.
    Why don't you show me around and then we can have a nice crunch salad for lunch emoticon
