Taking a Stand

I'm taking a stand. All the hollow intentions of "dieting" are done, and I'm willing to make some changes for life.

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Now I'm ready to shut up and learn, ready to do the work that getting healthier will ...
I'm taking a stand. All the hollow intentions of "dieting" are done, and I'm willing to make some changes for life.

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Now I'm ready to shut up and learn, ready to do the work that getting healthier will take. I'm done with the "tomorrow" goals, and committed to the "right now." I'm excited about the change, and very grateful for this gift called Spark People. Thanks for being there, everyone - I'm learning every day from each of you.

I had no idea how much the good information, support and encouragement would mean to me - you folks are amazing. Let's DO THIS!

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

I did find a few treasures at the beach with the kids. I have found so many treasures through the years that I am becoming more selective. I limited myself to a couple of agates and beach glass this trip.

qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung, qigong, cheegung..

I'm the idiot that saw quinoa and pronounced it kwinoah to one of my daughters..oh my! keenwah...keenwah..kenwah...

(I taught my kids when working on their spelling lists, go through the list and figure out which ones you know which ones you don't. The ones you don't, write out 3 times. Redo the whole list. If you still don't know them, then right the ones you don't out 7 times, repeat until you OWN those words..no one can take that knowledge from you. So how rich will you be with words?) :)
