I signed up in 2007 but did not actually use the site until April 2010 and then only for a few months consistently, until now September 2011. Hence the need to find balance and self acceptance.

01/02/15 I am once again back to work on finding balance in my life. My SparkPage stats show my being a member since 2007, but the truth is that I have been mostly inactive. I signed up in 2007 but did not actually use the site until April 2010 and then only for a few months consistently, until now September 2011. Hence the need to find balance and self acceptance. This time I am starting at 236 lbs. I have actually been as high as 252 lbs. Ouch!!!! I am looking into my overeating and the reasons behind all of the weight. I don't know why I self sabotage as I know that the healthier I eat and the more active I get, the more interest I have in nature and sports.

I know that there is a beautiful light inside ready to shine!

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. - Anatole France

"The person standing on the mountain top did not get there by falling. You have to climb to where you want to go--and you cannot get there by climbing over others. It is about climbing with others, side by side, and even pulling some others up with you."

"I love myself--body, mind, and soul. When you are at peace with yourself and love yourself, it is virtually impossible to be self-destructive." - Dr. Wayne Dyer

I have carried a child within my body.....I have comforted a baby upon my chest.....I have loved a child with all my heart....My body is not magazine perfect, but when I look in the mirror I see a mother, and there is no greater honor or blessing. - Amanda, my beautiful daughter

Even while you strive to improve your life, part of you is whole, well, and perfect right where you stand. - Alan Cohen

Aren't they though? They're pretty expensive too, but once you go silk, you don't want to go back to synthetics. Luckily I've managed to trade a veil or two for pottery. I have had half a dozen of Dar's veils and a couple of them were sold when I got out of dance. I'm happy to have kept 3 or 4. They can be used for summer wear, like tying them up into a halter dress or using them as a sarong, or just wrapping yourself up it it because it's so beautiful.

I wish it were 93 degrees here! Then I could go swimming in the lake again before summer is officially over at the Fall Equinox.
