Love and Gratitude

Hello, my name is Amy. I've been Sparking since January 2014 and I've had some success with weight loss, yes, though it's been a bit of a rocky road. I haven't hit my goals in the time that I had set, but I have learned some pretty valuable lessons. Most importantly, I've learned to love myself enough to like who I am regardless of my weight. It is a lot easier to get physically healthy when you are mentally healthy as well!

Hello, my name is Amy. I've been Sparking since January 2014 and I've had some success with weight loss, yes, though it's been a bit of a rocky road.

It is a lot easier to get physically healthy when you are mentally healthy as well!

I've learned also to be grateful, something that sounds small but has had a huge impact for me. That gratitude has me behaving in ways that are healthier, taking care of what I've got. While I have some big issues with depression, having a place where I can blog/rant has given me tremendous insight so that I can recognize when a dark period is coming on. For me that is huge.

Finally, this sight has given me the opportunity to make friends who share my experiences, a tremendous asset when you are re-learning just who it is you are. Their objective insights have made it possible for me to keep making small changes. A lot of small changes that have made a big difference in my life.

Yes, people tend to get very touchy when it comes to the issue of religion ... This can, however, be a plus----------nothing gets a class of undergrads riled up to the point of extreme chattiness like a strategically placed reference to something Bible-related.

Eid mubaruk right back at you!

(I just received a calendar naming every single religious holiday know to man. You'll be seeing a lot of religious greetings on my status!)
