I need to remember this more often.





Where I want to be and how to get there.





This reminds me of what I am trying to do besides lose weight.

My Journey - April 3, 2008

Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp our profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we ...
Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp our profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we will become. It's not a linear progression by any stretch of the imagination. It comes with bumps, weight loss, "plateaus", frustration. We did not get to the weight we are in one weekend of indiscretions, nor will we lose it overnight. It's a long tedious process. But I do believe when we explore those dark corners of our soul and cast a nourishing light there, the demons will scatter, and we will have a clearer understanding of ourselves, and what we really hope to get out of life.

In any endeavor, to be credible, you have to be fit, not only for yourself, but to create a successful business. That's our next goal. One gets fit for oneself, not for any significant other, or for one's children. Once we realize that, we have taken the first significant step.

It's never too late to take that first step forward. Meet you at the Maintenance Table. No rush to get there. It never closes.

I finally made it to the book store yesterday. I got my copy of "Go Set a Watchman." When I came home, I got the bright idea (from you, actually) to reread "To Kill a Mockingbird" again before starting the new one. I am glad I did, too. I need the refresher!!

Ah yes, I am aware of that book and the controversy. I don't think I will have the time needed to join you this time around, however, I am very interested. Please do keep me in the loop for what comes next! I think this sounds fun. emoticon emoticon

In spite of the plea of the father of the victim, this is Virginia where it seems that every person with a pulse has a right to own a gun or even his own private arsenal. It has been nearly 10 years since a mentally unstable person killed all those students at Virginia Tech and yet here we are again. Such is the climate in my neck of the woods.

I would love to try the book club. How will it work? I'm not sure I'll always have time since I'm starting grad classes but I know I can discuss "Go Set a Watchman" because I've already read it!

Please, tell me more about your book club. Is it a team? I never make enough time for reading. It would be nice to do that!!
