Hi, my name is Debi. After smoking for more than 40 years, I quit eleven months ago (11/22/12). I used junk food as a replacement for smoking which made me more tired, more unhealthy, and even more overweight.
I am working on a list of 60 goals I want to achieve (or at least be in the process of) by the time I reach the age of 60. I have one year.
I’m here to work toward accomplishing some of those goals on my way to achieving Sixty by Sixty.
* make healthy eating choices
* be comfortable in my clothes
* feel fit and have more energy
* feel better about myself
* set a good example for my children
* spend more time with my family
Married, and the mother of four grown children, I love to spend my days creating. I love pretty papers, lace, vintage jewelry and millinery. I love Marie Antoinette and French inspired art, mixed media, sewing, and scrapbooking. I am also a blogger. You can find me at www.lifeinmystudio.com.

Thanks so much for the beautiful cornucopia filled with seasonal veggies. I hauled out my boxes of Thanksgiving decorations last week and put together 4 cornucopias for my 4 little old blue-haired ladies that I visit and decorate for and spoil up at the local nursing home. I had an abundance of acorn squash that I was given so used some of those and the rest was all silk leaves and plastic fruit and veggie kind of things...I'll collect the acorn squash back up again when I clean up the turkey day decorations on Friday and cook it up!!
Saw where you posted you slipped and fell. I think the only thing that saved me from a fall was all the extra chores and walking I did these last few days. I have been spending too much time on spark and not enough on real life so needed to really cram in some outdoor projects that I needed to finish before we really do get hit hard with impending winter. I cut way back on the baking I usually do for others but some I just couldn't say no. I had to take it to my mom's almost immediately for cooling and packaging or I would have wolfed down rolls and cookies by the dozen. Walking has really helped me in so many ways. It's starting to feel like brushing my teeth...just have to get it out of the way first thing in the morning! I hope you have a great week and can keep the stress-monsters at bay. I usually only smoke 4 cigs a day at maximum...I gained 50 pounds when I quit. But have smoked half a pack the last two days...so I know part of it is the holiday stress...right during the Great American Smoke-Out!!??
Thanks again for the lovely goodie! It means a lot to me.

CONGRATULATIONS !!! You are the recipient of the "BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AWARD"
What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.
~~¨D Scott Westerfeld
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Again, Congratulations Beautiful Debi and THANKS for spreading beauty, friendship, support, motivation and inspiration to my life and so many others on SP.
