Hi there ... I have been overweight since I was about 11, which is when I stopped growing taller. I am determined to get healthy once and for all. I have set a goal to lose 130 pounds.
Feel free to "jump on the caravan" (happily edited from" journey" after being enlightened by BOSS61, see link below) ... jump in or hang on for the ride! :)

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my SparkPage to check on me! I'm not doing so well at the moment. I've been sick since yesterday. I was hoping I'd be better this morning, but I didn't sleep much last night and still feel sick. :(

How are things going for you?
