Hi Everyone

My name is Purrrpy, I was born in Canada and live in Toronto, Ontario. I am 56 years old woman, surrounded with wonderful people and supports. I have been on Sparkpeople since February 2011 and I am slowly developing a healthier relationship with food. I have slowing been losing weight over the last several months and now view this as lifestyle change not a DIE-T.

After 8 months on Sparkpeople my blood pressure is normal again and I have lost 40 lbs. What an amazing feeling. I am even starting to like exercising and exercising is becoming more consistent.

I try to live each day to the fullest and with a positive attitude. I believe life is not what is dealt to you but more on how you choose to cope with it. I consider myself a positive person and I am enjoying getting to know all the new friends I have met on Sparkspeople.

Live each day to the fullest - enjoy each moment and cherish the memories. Know that no matter what the issue or challenge is this too shall pass. Maybe not the way we want it - BUT it will pass.

Wake up each day - with new hope, look forward to new opportunites and possiblities and you will never be disappointed. Remember successes is not necessarily measured by the weight you lose - but more by the healthier habits and patterns that we develop that will last a lifetime!!

Thank-you everyone that continues to be a part of this wonderful journey and I look forward to meeting so many others. TOGETHER we CAN !!!!!!!!

THANK YOU for stopping by. GLAD to see you!
I have been all over the place this year. I had some low points but the highest is not giving up on myself.
Still...lots of challenges within (injury) and around me (2 daughters engaged, 1 graduating HS, father laid off...planning retirement...and on and on.
I promised myself to invest in my own good health in 2010...and no matter what I keep that promise. Isn't always pretty or stellar or gold metal worthy...but I just keep going.
That has turned into my definition of success.
Glad to see you have the same spirit. Spark on Spark friend.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read and comment on my blog, Loving Yourself: PAWSE in the Moment to Access What You Already Know. I hope that you are remembering to use some of the techniques suggested. I'm glad you found some things that were helpful to you, and that they keep you coming back to Spark People for support and to read more. Thank you . . .

KATHRYN1955 WROTE, I think it is because I feel better about myself that I have been able to greatly decrease my sugar/wheat intake. I find I do not need it to numb myself. I also find that I am focusing more on others rather than constantly worrying about if I look fat, is my hair right etc. etc. Interestingly enough, as I do that, I also am taking the time to look after myself. It doesn't happen in a flash, but more as a gentle unfolding and gradual awareness that I feel more at peace.
Thank you, Sharon, for your blogs...if we can learn to love ourselves, warts and all, the whole weight thing becomes a non-issue.

It becomes easier to love yourself when you PAWSE to remember these concepts. They help make it easier for you to let go of everything in the moment thereby offering you the opportunity to merge into flow with whatever is happening in the moment, and to wake up to your deepest truth, and to live what you already know.
