Come on Seven it's time for us to face the unknown together. I believe we can move mountains,,,
A little nest that's nestled where the snow falls and good friends come to sit and chat.
Here I shall sit & let my thoughts wash over me. Then I will arise strong, fearless & ready.

9/14/14 Because my sister -SEVEN- aka Fidia believes in me so much, here I am back on Spark and I even joined the BLC team which I was a part of for rounds 14-17. If she thinks I can do it then I had better listen to her and GER'ER'DONE!
After 2 major back surgeries in March I found that I could not walk for about a month and then had to spend 3 weeks in a rehab hospital (thank God it was here in my home town) and although I am looking at 1 more minor surgery and I go for my last MRI tomorrow 9/15/14 there are still things to be done to get me back to a more healthier me. Exercise being one of them, it is still very hard to do and I have had to stop PT until this last surgery (consult on the 24 of this month for surgery date) but I continue to do PT here at the house and I know that I have lost 36.5 pounds since those back surgeries in March and I know I did it through my good eating habits.
So will continue to work on my healthy eating habits but gottoa kick some PT in the booty to get off some more pounds.
Like I say, I am a work in progress and will probably always continue to be so. But hey that only means you can teach an old dog new tricks.
I am Karla or Nims or Nimsy or Nimma or Nimmykins or Nimmers or Nimmie. I answer to all of them except my given name Karla. Funny isn't it how much I like my Name on here.
I am a work in progress.
I love all my SP teams but right now it is the Pink Panthers BL Spring Into Action team that has really taken me in due to the fact that I am going to be having 2 major back surgeries on 3/12 & 3/18 and will not be able to participate in exercise or much of anything, but they are accepting me as an honorary member this Spring (I have been on the team for many rounds now as an active member) and will be showering me with all the love and support I will need during this time. THANKS EMMY AND THE WHOLE PINK PANTHER TEAM.
But if your looking for a wonderful challenge you really should check out the teams, there are many besides the Pink Panthers and I bet at least one of your friends belongs to one of them. You should be there.
I am also a team leader (not doing to much to help move the teams along right now but I have some awesome co-cappies thank God. One team is all about creative writing and role play and is called Realms of Imagination or RoI. So if you enjoy creative writing come give it a look see.
My other team is called Homebodies and our Spouse is our BFF. Just good friends sharing their days, crafts, canning info and good conversation. If you want to check it out just let me know.
Now here comes the RL parts of my life that give me fits. I have been having so many problems with my diabetes for the past year it is the top priority in my life.
But then I have been having some off shoot depression problems when I think about these 2 major surgeries looming ahead.
Never knew how hard it is to fight depression until I found myself right in the middle of it.
But like I said between Spark and good friends, family, God I am going to win these battle and reclaim my good health. I hope to see you walking right beside me so we can encourage each other.
I only hope and pray I get back to my old cheerful happier self once these surgeries are over and I can find my way back to writing my blogs about Life Lessons. I know these are battles I must WIN!!

That means losing weight and eating right and putting in more exercise.
I know this can be done as I have done it before.

Nothing like cutting out the bad grains but also being able to eat what you love, in moderation that is.
