Life is a journey... I am a Creatrix of My next chapter.

Here on a journey......I lost 67 pounds, and reached my goal weight!! I have a healthy lifestyle now, focused on eating whole foods as often as possible, exercise very regularly, lots and lots of water, and daily yoga practice and Reiki self-treatment.

Here on a journey......I lost 67 pounds, and reached my goal weight!! I have a healthy lifestyle now, focused on eating whole foods as often as possible, exercise very regularly, lots and lots of water, and daily yoga practice and Reiki self-treatment.

I have been maintaining, but I am working to move a little further into the healthy BMI range, and work on my strength training.

I loved the Jenny Craig program, and learned so much about healthful eating, portion control, regular exercise, positive self-talk, and reasonable goal setting, along with visualisation. All the great things you learn on SP!

I also learned about the value of social support. Having been a therapist for years, I'm here for the social support. You can never have too much support!

Been through several serious traumas, but oh, yeah, I'm still alive, sometimes kicking, focused on thriving, and working on new life goals.

Other Information:
"And Joy is Everywhere; It is in the Earth's green covering of grass; In the blue serenity of the Sky; In the reckless exuberance of Spring; In the severe abstinence of gray Winter; In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame; In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright; In Living; In the exercise of all our powers; In the acquisition of Knowledge; in fighting evils...Joy is there Everywhere"
-Rabindranath Tagore


"Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day."
-Henri Nouwen

Even if our efforts of attention seem for years to be producing no result, one day a light that is in exact proportion to them will flood the soul

- Simone Weil

And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Aanais Nin
