READY TO LOSE, READY TO LIVE

Hi!
I am GRAMMAELLEN and I am searching for good health. I hope to lose weight, become more active, and improve my outlook on life. I miss the person I used to be, and I am trying to find her again. I have the best dogs ever, Rosie, a shar-pei and a new puppy Lucy who is half rat terrier and half Jack Russell terrier. I want to take them to the park and on walks again.

Hi!
I am GRAMMAELLEN and I am searching for good health. I hope to lose weight, become more active, and improve my outlook on life. I miss the person I used to be, and I am trying to find her again. I have the best dogs ever, Rosie, a shar-pei and a new puppy Lucy who is half rat terrier and half Jack Russell terrier. I want to take them to the park and on walks again. I am lucky enough to have 2 fantastic children, and 3 incredible grandsons. David, Dawson and Devin. I want to be healthy enough to play with my grandkids. I want to watch my grandsons graduate from college. I want to dance at their weddings. I want to watch my great grandkids grow up. I want to feel sexy again. I want my husband to think "Oooo baby!" when he looks at me. I need to feel good about myself and proud of my accomplishments again. Somehow they all got tied up in this weight thing, and I don't know why. I am happy to be where I am in life. And I believe Spark People can help me become healthier, thinner, more active, and just plain improve my overall life experience. I am so thankful that SP exists. It is a truly amazing site. And so, the adventure begins!

Other Information:
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too can become great." Mark Twain


When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Wendell Berry
