I''m not gaining speed, just slowing down less than everyone else!

I have been a "sparker" since 2008, left and now return for a re-do. I pray, hope, and plan to make this re-do stick. Live and learn!!! I''ve always been very active person, until I fractured my spine (2 years ago) and it''s time to get back to the strong bodied woman I feel inside. I have a custom tattoo, it''s my avatar (not pic at your left). Lord knows, I would love to look like that but it''s really more about spirit. I have spent my life searching for meaning in life.

I have a custom tattoo, it''s my avatar (not pic at your left). Lord knows, I would love to look like that but it''s really more about spirit. I have spent my life searching for meaning in life. I have lived at times somewhat recklessly (haven''t we all?). My compass has taken me to a very comfortable place in life, and I do not want to be sedentary. I want to live life to the fullest until I''m very old and gray. I am back in the fight to regain my health, and live the life I want to live without the issue of weight (loss enough to not feel so much knee and back pain) and immobility to contend with!

Hey there! I did LOTS of reading on the Whole30 before I made the decision to give it a go. I'm only on day 9, but I'm feeling great and very glad I gave it a go. Spark People has a Whole30 group too if you're looking for others here that are invested int he program.

emoticon Spark Buddie,

My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

“Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
– Stacey Charter

Have a Fabulous Week !!!

And I just saw your post about magnesium. I know right? I can not BELIEVE the medical profession hardly acknowledges when it s potential for good is so amazing.

Then again big pharma can't patent a mineral so I guess there is money in it !

I LOVE hearing about other people discovering magnesium :)

I've added you as a friend. Hope thats OK emoticon
