My Goals:

Confirm success over overeating and keep losing weight.

NO DIET!!! Food isn't my enemy, I am never going back to diets of any kind.

*FITNESS
1 or 2 hikes/walks every weekend (3 to 7 hours in total, with a photo blog for the fun and to keep myself accountable) and walks or stationary bike twice a week depending on the weather.

I am French and live just outside Paris. I am 6ft (no, French women aren't all 'petite'!).
I love to travel and I have a passion for jazz (Cool West Coast).

Tu sais que moi je ne fais que 1m54... et en plus je ne porte jamais de talons!!! emoticon Les Hollandais sont tous grands par rapport aux Français, non? Peut-être pas le pays idéal pour moi ;-)
Grosses bises!

Dear Claire,

Another Spark friend forwarded me the following poem, and when I read it I wanted to send it to you...God's Blessings


I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

Author Unknown


I hope all is going well with your mother now.
Take care - thinking of you,
Nattacia

It is always welcome when you drop by my blog with a comment. You are so right in that our ingrained perspective has so much to do with the way our mother’s raised us. My mom was a young girl in the dirty 30’s- the depression and I think her concept of scarcity continued on with her all her life and she passed it on to her children. I never dare to dream for too much because first of all that might set one up for disappointment and maybe in her own way that was a kindness.
I really do want to break out and dream for the impossible. What do they say…we don’t have to know how the universe is going to get it to us…we just have to believe it is ours for the asking….Paris sounds good at this Christmas.
