You and I have been together,
Since I ever could remember.
You been patted, squished
Been the torment of my youth.
You have never truly gone away,
And maybe that is why today
I barely tend to think of you
As really something, not that new.
You have come and gone through pregnancies
Hanging out inside my jeans.
Whether then size 16 or now a 6,
You always seem to get your kicks
By hanging out and staying there
Tucked inside my underwear.
Iím 40 now and over you.
There is really nothing I can do
Because gravity now is not a friend
My boobs, my butt have joined the sag,
Looking like a crumpled bag.
Youíre not that important after all
Forgot about you when Motherhood called.
The kids they really do not care
That you are ever present there.
Iím amazed that you were so important
To me so long ago.
It seems that with age Iím all the wiser
To go along with the flow.
If I could take back anything
It would be the time I lost
Worrying about something dumb
Really wasnít worth the cost.

This is a very very very informal poll... I am just curious.
Please answer the following if you are using Sparkcoach:
a) I am more motivated now than ever before: Yes or no
b) Has this made the difference?
c) Is guilt (ie, I am paying for it so I have to use it) a factor in your success? or does it not matter (like in any other paid online diet plan - WW, eDiets, Jenny C)
d) If you have used other programs (as I mentioned above) - what makes this one different from the others? and is it better? OR is it YOU that has a different mentality this time around???
Seriously, I am just curious... Food for thought...

Sometimes life is a gamble... I am learning this a little late, especially since I am usually on the safer side of the fence: don't disrupt the order of things, don't run with scissors... you know... that kind of being.
But sometimes, life throws you are curveball and things NEED to change and you HAVE TO take a chance on something new, and the only thing that is really holding you back, well...is you.
Eww....how sad is that to think of!
But that is how it is sometimes, and I'd rather rip off the bandaid and realize it now before life goes on without me!
Another EWW!!! What a horrible thought!!! But let's face it, sometimes that happens to people.
Well, today I took a chance and threw a resume into cyberspace.
That alone was weird to do...who the heck knows if I will get a call, but really, there is no time like the present when it comes to certain things, and this, is probably one of those times.
Why not??? What is it going to hurt? Absolutely nothing.
What is weird is that I have no nerves about it - and usually, I am a bundle of nerves lately! We shall see....
Weird that I am not holding my breath either... life's curveballs have had that affect on me since the last 2 months have come to pass...
Anyway, we shall see... we . shall . see...

Over the weekend...I turned 40.
Over the weekend...I turned off all emails and stopped thinking about work and enjoyed my family and a much needed break.
Over the weekend...Life continued on without me in a certain situation, just as I wanted and intended it to (thus the turned off emails explained a little bit)... and when I took myself out of the equation, the reality of what was going on for 3 months came to a head and others revealed their true colors... and I was no worse for wear, because really, it had nothing to do with me in the first place, I was just a piece in someone else's dream.
Over the weekend...I learned that a dream is a good thing, but dreaming in too many directions all at once, involving too many people in those many dreams, is NOT a good thing...sometimes dreams need a kick in the teeth of reality, and a smaller goals set in order to achieve one realistic goal first, and then you build it from there. You need a plan...I am a planner, no wonder I was a mess when I was listening to another person's scattered dreams.
Over the weekend...the music box became silent.
