Raspberry's Story

The raspberry is my favorite fruit, hence my username :)

This is not my first time working on bettering the ol' body, but this is the most serious.......you see, as someone looking for work, when one cannot fit well into ..... sigh ....... interview-friendly attire, well......this was my OMG moment! (Why, oh WHY are SUITS so important - gad, I HATE them!)

I have a lot on my plate right now, so I may not have a significant social presence here for now......so, I'll ...

My Goals:
A better body and overall health - and a neater appearance in suits would be a good thing, too (as much as I HATE suits) :)

My Program:
I restarted my journey using parts of Spark in conjunction with a recently completed workplace health challenge program - this seems to have done the trick so far, sooooooo - I'm crossing the ol' fingers for the future!

Other Information:
Just trying to keep in mind that old saying - "one day at a time"!

I totally understand about hanging out at the library when you don't want to go home...I've done that a lot! I also know what you mean about companies not hiring us more experienced folks...I'm in the midst of changing professions because of it. The good thing is that it forced me to follow my passion... the bad thing is I spent a lot of time thinking of myself as an overweight has been. Now I think of myself as a healthy woman in the making. emoticon

-raspberry-ranch-dressing/ Here's two recipes that include raspberries :) They sound delicious. I tried their 3 ingredient ranch. Only 30 calories, 1.8 fat, and 3 carbs for 2 tbsp... It's SO good and so flavorful. All I need are 4 tbsp on my salad and I gobble it down. lol

Itís true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. Thatís it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Donít give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful! ~ Steve Maraboli
