BUTTONPOPPER1 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I want to lose weight and become more healthy! AND I want to have fun with all the wonderful friends I've made here on SparkPeople. I love my Spark neighborhood. Thanks, guys, for helping me love my life!
My main goal is to be healthy in body and spirit so that I can live the right kind of life.
Eat properly. Forget about food at the end of every meal. Weigh once a week. Do not obsess. Do not limit life in any way because of body size.
I'm from a tiny town in Georgia (with no traffic lights), but now I live in Kobe, Japan. I'm married to a Japanese and have three bilingual, bicultural children--a son, 26, a daughter, 24, and a daughter, 19. I teach English to Japanese company workers, 99% of whom are men. I like my job.
I love reading. One of my favorite books is Fred Chappell's novel "Brighten the Corner Where You Are." And if I could state my philosophy, the title of that book would be IT!

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I added a comment on that same blog, about the situation of rescue dogs in my country.

My purpose, my goal, or whatever you want to call it is for people to always feel welcomed in my home.Though I do not enjoy parties or huge gatherings; surrounding myself with people that I truly love is my ultimate situation that I totally enjoy. And breaking bread? Well, that is truly a highlight, especially if it all turns out well.
My mother has been "addicted" to Starbuck's coffee cake, so my determination to make something in that order was my surprise and a gift for her. And she raved, even said it was by far, no comparison to Starbuck's, that mine was superb! Epicure.com has the best recipes, especially for the "New York Crumb Coffee Cake!"
I thoroughly enjoyed prepping and entertaining. It just all fell into place. ;o)
Hope all is well for you Carolyn. Anything new and exciting? ;lo)

Thank you, Carolyn! As you know, our hearts are often in sync when it comes to nature's beautyâ£ï¸ (Silly me - I am reposting this to your page, as I accidentally posted it 47 days ago-yikes!, as a response to your comment on my page and realize, you probably never saw it. Hopefully, better late, than never)

Thanks for coming by my spark page and commenting on that new Beck article . . . I too think her theories have a lot of really helpful applications!
Glad you enjoyed your walk on a cold day!
