My Transforming Journey

July 12, 2013. The REAL, the one and only BIG start over. The day I found my hubby submerged in the deep end of our pool....after he'd apparently tripped and hit his head on the cement as he fell in.

I thought my life changed on January 26, 2013, five and a half months earlier when I lost my mom...but little did I know.

I am now trying now to find out who I am without him. The REAL transformation has begun.

Fitness Minutes: 2,205

My Goals:
How many wake up calls does it take? I have been SO blessed with good genes and daily miracles, but I recognize my time on this wonderful planet is not forever. I want to get to a normal body weight before it is too late, so I can extend the quality of my wonderful life.

My Program:
Mindfulness in all things.

Live in a constant state of gratitude.

Laugh until my belly hurts.

Forgive all.

Stand right back up if I fall.

Personal Information:
I am what I am.

Other Information:
Fourth generation Californian, old hippie, who despite her protests, has grown become a combination of both of her parents.

I love theater, "fringe" music (opera, trad jazz, folk, Hawaiian falsetto, etc.), foriegn films and "funky" art. I paint, travel, laugh, and talk too much.

I think life is an spiritual journey and realize, even at my age, I have only just begun, and am barely scratching the surface of awareness.

I never read as much as I would like to, but am in a group that forces me to read at least one book a month...

In 2013 I lost both my mom and my husband... But am blessed to still have my dad, my son, my friends, and most of all my two precious grandbabies.,

Saw my picture next to yours on Eternalpinkglow page she had just made me a friend...went to your page and know what a tough time you have been through. Sometimes life can hand us so much heartache...but we grieve and move on somehow. Remember you did leave a message on my page some time ago and truthfully I cannot remember if I replied to it. God Bless you and keep you always looking upward with love and gratitude. The only way to live. Enjoy those grandchildren...Love you, Dot

Life is not about weight verses happiness. You have been through a devastating time. Take time to grieve...I know, I lost my husband to cancer and it turns life, as you knew it, into total confusion. Weight loss and its challenges emoticon can take your mind into a healthier place....it is not about pounds but awareness about needing wholeness. You will indeed reclaim and embrace life as your wounds heal...and then the pounds will drift away....Meg
