Member Since: 6/11/2008

SparkPoints: 40,200

Fitness Minutes: 680

My Goals:
To lose at least 20 more pounds and continue to learn to eat healthy.

My Program:
I work out at the gyn 3 times a week and on the days I don't work out, I walk 1-3 miles with my husband, Cecil, and my dog, Teddy Bear.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Waco, TX (born and raised). Got married at 18 and began moving around with my husband's job--he worked retail for 35+ years. Now he's out of retail and I work for the Texas Prison System in Huntsville, TX. We've been here for 3 1/2 years. I have 15 years with the system and my husband has almost 6. I hope to retire in 2013 with 20 years service and he hopes to retire then with 10 years service. We live in a golf course resort community next to the second largest lake in Texas. We don't play golf but the view can't be beat!

Other Information:
We have two grown children. Merrik is 32, is multi-handicapped, and lives in a group home in Abilene, TX. Cara is 29 (be 30 October 9th), graduated from Texas A&M University in 2000, and lives in College Station, TX. We moved to Huntsville to be closer to her and to move our son closer so she could obtain guardianship of him when I can no longer serve in that capacity. However, we haven't been able to find the right group home for him in this area, so he will remain in Abilene until that time.

Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of what you can't change. Love deeply and forgive quickly. Take chances, give everything and have no regrets.

Life is too short to be unhappy--you have to take the good with the bad. Smile when you're sad. Love what you got and always remember what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn from your mistakes, but never regret. People change and things go wrong, but always remember LIFE GOES ON!!!

Every day is a gift--that's why they call it the present.

"We have no more right to consume happiness without providing it than to consume wealth without producing it".-George Bernard Shaw

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."-Mahatma Gandhi

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."-Dr. Seuss


The struggles make you stronger and the changes make you wiser...just sending some ((((Positive and Skinny)))) Vibes your way: ) Never forget You ARE worth it!!!

When you wake up in the morning, complete the following statement, "My purpose is to...today." Just passing through to spread the Spark; remember to be kind to yourself--you ARE worth it= )


The road to success is not straight: there is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, red lights called enemies and caution lights called jobs. But if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, a driver called God, you will make it to a place called SUCCESS!


Beautiful pictures are developed from negatives in a dark room. So, if you see darkness in your life, be sure that a beautiful picture is being prepared by God!


Sending ((((Positive and Skinny Vibes)))) your Way,


Melissa

Beauty Lies in the Beholder's Eyes

So many beauties in this appealing world,
The true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.
There is beauty in the child's innocence and in mother's love,
There is beauty in a friend's affection and in a tender heart.
There is beauty in a pretty smile and caring eyes,
There is beauty in the morning sun and a rainy day.
There is beauty in the flaky slow and a pleasant spring,
There is beauty in the milky moon and the graceful rivers.
There is beauty in a hard earned victory and a hopeful soul,
There is beauty in me and beauty in you.
So many beauties in this spectacular world and its dazzling life,
And the true beauty lies in the beholder's eyes.

Kavitha Krishnamurthy


As we give thanks this week, let's not forget to count our blessings; remember there are those who are less fortunate. Take the time to really enjoy your holiday and stay safe, especially if you are travelling! As always, sending ((((Positive and Skinny Vibes)))) your way today and EVERY day= )


Happy Thanksgiving, my SP family!!!!

Melissa
