Just for today

Just for today, I'm going to make healthy choices in my life. I'll worry about tomorrow when it becomes today. I can do ANYTHING "just for today." I believe that my history is NOT my destiny. At any given moment I have the power to say this it not how the story is going to end.

I reached my Spark goal in 2011, losing 75 lb. via good nutrition, cardio & strength. My goal for 2014 is to be joyful and live life to the fullest!

Thanks so much for the comment. Yes, I too, had to pick myself up off the floor when DH volunteered his kidney. So unlike him but I look at it as redemption on his part for all the pain and suffering he has put me through in our 32 years together. If his kidney can stop the suffering I am now going through I will gladly accept it, if its possible. I just don't want him to use it as leverage against me later and I am afraid that may be what happens.

As for Dan looking like the daughter's EX... I haven't seen that, maybe because I don't want to. Lol I will say this though, they are 2 totally different men, personality wise. Dan is the complete opposite of the EX in every way and believe me, that is a good thing. emoticon


Merry Christmas my friend!
