Constant creative progress -not perfection

I'm here to improve my health by developing better eating and exercise habits with the encouragement & support of the Spark community, my friends and family. I'd also like to start reinserting more creativity back into my life as well (especially, music, dancing, and art).

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO" ...

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO"

which essentially means :

"THE DROP OF WATER HOLLOWS OUT THE STONE BY FREQUENT DROPPING, NOT BY FORCE; CONSTANT PERSISTENCE GAINS IN THE END."

These words inspired me to think about becoming a steady, constant drop of water in my own life, and the lives of my family and friends. Water can be so many things: refreshing, cleansing, energizing, powerful and basically the essence of life itself. Thanks for being a part of my journey.


- FINALLY GETTING STARTED, March 1, 2009 (270#)

When I first created my SparkPage, I thought I needed to post the clip of the little fat, sleeping gopher with the statement

"I WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE. IF I COULD JUST GET STARTED."

So I got started with SparkPeople with long term goal of achieving a balanced healthy lifestyle. I weighed in at 270#, set a short term goal of 255# and long term goal of 125#. Well I reached my 1st short term weight goal of 255# on 5/28/09. Thanks to SparkGuy for conceiving this little gem and to all my "SparkPeeps" who have and will encourage me along the way.

Love Yah!

Thanks for visiting my page! My team challenge was to use the theme "back to school" and I went with the school of fish idea.

Autumn starts tomorrow -- what's the weather like there?

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage. No, I haven't been able to work in clay this year YET, BUT I will be this Fall, I'm sure. I have been putting together a studio in my basement this summer. I have a kiln now and just got the venting hooked up. Next I have to get busy and clear a work space, and hopefully get a wheel. I can't wait. Do you do pottery?

I think I might need a full-on punch in the face, as opposed to a kick in the rear! emoticon

Thanks, but the temps are almost 100 degrees here the past few days and it's supposed to be hot again today too. I sure wish it would cool off soon!
