We control how we respond to life. You choose to appreciate what you have and sail forward or you focus on what is behind and drown. I am a realist who has decided that for the rest of my journey, I am going to enjoy all the humor life has to offer. Because the world has gone nuts. I believe positive people bring a little sanity into this CRAZY world. And the only antidote for the madness, is to have some good laughs along the way.

My highest weight was 285 in 2008. The doctor told me I was prediabetic, I was starting to develop metabolic syndrome, I had reached the 3X size, and I was headed for disaster. Fear can sometimes be your friend; it scared me enough to take off 35 pounds fast...but old habits die slowly and the weight crept back. A co-worker told me about Spark People. He knew I could use some help. I joined up, started tracking, started exercising, started reading the articles, and the blogs. I was part of a community. I identified with a lot of the stories and the feelings behind them. The more involved I became, the more good habits I developed. It isn't a one size fits all world, And SparkPeople isn't a one size fits all community. You decide which path to travel. You decide how hard to work at it. You decide how much of a challenge you need and how fast to take those steps. But working together with like minds means you have the support, the encouragement, and a great source of information to get you there. There is no GIVING UP on SparkPeople; you may trip a little but the support helps get you back on track. It's just a matter of opening that window, letting in some fresh ideas, and stretching yourself. Change your mind; change your habits; change your life.

"Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment. "

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." ~~Maya Angelou

“Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming but we can choose which one to surf.” ~~ Jonatan Mårtensson

Personal Information:
Height 5'10"+ . Always struggled with weight. Escaped from NYC, hiding in Jersey. Looking for the 'perfect' man, someone who doesn't have a criminal record, doesn't talk to people who aren't there, and isn't on drugs, or make others want to take drugs, while with him. Funny how people in the movie ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST seem so normal now.

We Live In A Crazy World Where Life Doesn't Make Sense Half The Time. Humor Is A Coping Mechanism And Seeing The Glass Half Full Is A Choice. Remember ... We are the stuff stars are made of. Hope We Can Share A Smile.

    My thoughts for the day. Proverbs 15:15, " All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Since I wanted to increase my merry heart I wrote a poem.

    Principle of Rejoicing

    R emember His infinite atoning sacrifice.
    E xercise agency to believe His living word.
    J oin in His sacrifices by loving service.
    O bey from the heart what you've "heard".
    I ncrease daily, thanksgiving and praise.
    C hoosing virtue and holiness continually,
    E nter into the joy of the Lord all your days.

    My husband loves stuffed cabbage and it was his Hungarian mother's specialty. It is a lot of trouble and I think unstuffed cabbage is probably just as good.

    emoticon Sweetie, hope your hav'n a super, stupendous Saturday. I am, since I've said sayonara to senseless snacking on mental "slop" and instead serving myself satisfying, scrumptious, sweet, soul filling "salences" to support my fattening soul and skinnier silhouette. So there!

    P.S. "Salences"= my coined word for combination salad+sentences.
