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!

You always write the most beautiful words and your kindness to KeepItUp4Life as she faces surgery for herself and her son's surgery with her kidney transplant to her son, well, your words to her were so comforting and relieving. I have been busy with the GK and my classes and homework, but I don't know when I have ever been happier. Finding balance and joy.
Wishing you a lovely autumn. I haven't even written to keep in touch. I am on a 5% challenge Team this Fall, and it is the very thing helping me drop the pounds! Keep well, and will check in over the weekend

Thanks for your message about being a star patient! Yep, I am! He's an awesome doctor! You are such a wonderful support my dear! Keep up your good work!
Thought you may enjoy this on this tender day of prayer for your friend going through major surgery today. Saw her in concert last Christmas and she is simply amazing!

Carolyn....i'm like you with this election going on. as soon as i get on the computer and i spend way too much time on this...i have to check out on what is going on with this election. i can't wait until it is over. i read the comments that people write after the articles. i just can't believe how gullible people are and how they forget what happened years ago and of course how bias the media is. i think i can see one side doing as they say the other side is doing, but no one can see that...if you can understand what i'm saying. i'm so tired of this all.
we all are doing good here. i lost my older dog Kiwi last month. she was 14 and had arthritis very bad and when her hip broke i had to make the decision. she was such a special girl and was by my side through so many difficult times. Panda is doing better than i thought she would. kitties are all doing good. Hobo is finally settling down and trying to be a good boy. he still has lots of kitten inside him even though he is a year old now. 3 kittens around 5 months old showed up about 2 months ago. there is one female and 2 boys. the little girl just made up to me on Monday. i can pet her and she is so docile and very playful. wish i could find her a nice inside home. what is amazing about this little girl is i see so much of springs in her. it's as if he is back and in her body.
i'm super busy and don't seem to have much time for computing and unfortunately i will have less time as i will be starting making Christmas wreaths in a couple of weeks or less. i have lots of house work, garden work and anything else i have gotten behind on.
please take care and i hope all is going good for you. hugs to you my sweet friend.
