Fight the Fight. Finish the Race. Keep the Faith.

After five years on SparkPeople, I have made some noteworthy self-discoveries. This is the first time I have ever made a lasting commitment to exercise regularly, made a deliberate decision and consistent effort to lose weight, and believed myself capable of reaching my goals. At the end of the day, the degree of your mental fortitude is the determining factor in your success. Whatever your situation that is something you have the power to control!

You are young enough to be my granddaughter, but I just have to tell you: we think a lot alike! I love your quote on you SPage, and I notice we love the same books! (I don't know anyone else who loves the same books I do!)

I think we are kindred spirits, even if several generations apart!

I would join your book teams, but I am already involved in too many teams to do them all justice.

Just wanted to say .... emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm Thankful for You

Thanksgiving is the appointed time
for focusing on the good in our lives.
In each of our days,
we can find small blessings,
but too often we overlook them,
choosing instead to spend our time
paying attention to problems.
We give our energy
to those who cause us trouble
instead of those who bring peace.
Starting now,
let's be on the lookout
for the bits of pleasure in each hour,
and appreciate the people who
bring love and light to everyone
who is blessed to know them.
You are one of those people.
On Thanksgiving,
I'm thankful for you.
Happy Thanksgiving!
