Come on in for renewal and friendship...

2013 Right NOW - Have a New Beginning. Take the energy we have regarding NewYears & bring it to each new day. Everyday we can renew our goals realizing it is a new beginning point. I haven't gotten back to my heaviest though I have put weight back on. In the past I have surrendered to giving up, instead of surrendering to change. I am waving my white flag - it is baby step little; but present. I surrender to Necessary Change (growth). Come on in & have a cup of NewBeginning with me today! ...

Posted 2009 - I have worked hard to permanently lose 20 lbs and to extend that off and on to 30 lbs. That is progress. Of course, I work hard to give myself credit for actual progress and have that overshadow the negative thoughts that I have not lost what I SHOULD have. I am more active now and had a summer of bike rides of over 20 miles. MIRACLES. I will be President of the local quilt guild in 2010. I do have to figure out some inexpensive winter activities. Exercise is the key for me.

Posted in 2008: I could list my true hobbies (things I actually spend time doing) in this order: Wasting time, Thinking, Day Dreaming, Wondering, Eating, Sleeping, TV - in other words things that I can easily do on my couch - but I am no Couch Potato - not me - I am a Divan Diva - just ask my family! I think that I am royalty and people should weight on me hand and foot. No one is lining up!

I struggle with laziness and consistency which I think is so intricately interwoven with my depression issues that it is hard to get a handle on it. I hope to make a bigger handle with the tools from SP! Thanks for reading my page and for your support. How can I support you? Think happy thoughts and have a successful day!

"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, "Here comes number seventy-one!"
