2015 was shadowed by sadness at the loss of Mama and I suspect there will be the pinch of that loss for the rest of my life. That is not to say my heart isn't ready to love joyously. It is!

2016 is starting with a different flavor from years past. I am not smack at goal - but I'm within 5 lbs of it. Better - I have the confidence that I will be at goal a whole lot more often than not this year. There's a calm certainty about it that surprises even me, but it's a delightful ...

Better - I have the confidence that I will be at goal a whole lot more often than not this year. There's a calm certainty about it that surprises even me, but it's a delightful surprise. How I will do this I'm not sure - but I bet it'll be revealed to us all in the blogs. And I'm sure TheBrains will have a lot to say about things too.

Hi there! Enjoyed catching up on blogs. Cool self dialogue with excellent points made. Big congrats on maintenance anniversary! Woohoo to three years of figuring this out! I especially liked the NSV of reframing your concept of that proud eight year old! Great place to be. Congrats to you. Proud to be in great Spark company. emoticon

Thanks for my first smiles today, those brains of yours! Are they free for consults?! Probably need to work on a plan of my own. Hahaha, didn't even consider what your secret is. Annnnnnd dang it is hard to keep others' secrets. All the fam knew our CO kids had been trying, so I was afraid of inadvertently slipping with their news. Fun now just learning how grand number four is growing... emoticon
