This Painting Is Called "Face Reality Female" The time has come for me to really FACE REALITY, AND SO I SHALL!!!
Hey Spark Frams, ( friends and family) O.M.G! Where do I start. Um, well first I fell and I fell hard AGAIN. It is just unbelievable how hard it is to lose weight. This is literally the hardest thing I've ever had to be besides having my baby and that was nearly 34 years ago. I use to drink and smoke neither of whch I do now. I would think that those two things would be the hardest things ever to give up, but I did so very easily. I learned that the other vices/habits I had weren't necessities, but eating to survive is and that's the difference. I'm not going to dwell on mistakes I've made. But instead take the negative and make it positive. I've found my way back yet again, and I'M SO HAPPY TO BE HOME!
JUST ADDING MORE INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION TO REMIND ME I CAN DO ANYTHING I SET MY MIND TOO!
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can't see.
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need for my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
♥Hey SP Family♥
My name is Pearl aka Ms. Drpitlikitshot. I hale from the "Show Me State" of Missouri. I'm 53 years ( not anymore, lol. I'm 55 now)young and absolutely love the color RED. I'm a pet lover, I love all animals. Currently I have birds ( no more birds, they flew the coop) and the newest addition to my family is a siamese kitty whose name is Prince " Rico" Sau`ve he's so adorable. Sadly I lost Rico to an intestinal virus Oct 27, 2010. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN, RIP RICO. No current pets
I have a beautiful daughter and very beautiful grand daughter, both whom I love dearly. I'm here because I need help! Point blank. I know I can't do this by myself. Sure, I know I put it on by myself, we all did right?! Well, I need help taking it off and keeping it off. Hence my reason for coming to SP. I want to surround myself with people who know the struggles of losing weight first hand. When someone says to me..Girl, I know how you feel. I want to know for a fact, THEY INDEED KNOW HOW I FEEL!!!
I must also tell you that I'm greedy (yeah a fact already known, that's why I'm here right) I want it all, I want the encouragement, the uplifting, the pep talks, the motivation, the caring and compassion, the tears, the joy, the happiness, even the No PAIN NO GAIN.
Currently, my weight is no longer 266 (yay) but 261.5 lb now. My heaviest weight was 3 years when I weighed 285 pounds. Boy was I a mess, everything on my body hurt! I managed to lose 40 pounds but over time and the lack of motivation I began to slowly gain it back. Before long (if I had kept on the path I was on) it wouldn't have taken me long to get back to where I started. I do not want that to happen. So that's why I'm here.
Where can I find some WSB's (weight struggle buddy or buddies)? I NEED some badly! PSST...Did I tell ya'll I love the color RED? (I know I did, just play along with me, OK ) Doesn't it just scream hey look at me... I'm alive, alluring, sassy, bold, and sexy. You know what...that'll be me at the end of my weight loss journey. Wait a minute!!! Heck, that's me now, LOL, I'll just be far more intense when I reach my goal!
I'M MAKING THIS MY DAILY MANTRA
MY DAILY INTENTION
In all my transactions today, I intend to come from a place of love within me, to a place of love within others;
From a place of honesty in me, to a place of honesty within others;
From my integrity, to the integrity of others;
From a place of openness, to a place of openness as I respect the rights of all living things.
I intend to be gentle, kind and forgiving.
I intend to be aware of the wonders of the universe and to greet them all with gratitude and awe.
I intend to welcome whatever flows into my life to teach me today,
And to listen to the conversation that the universe is trying to have with me.
I intend to be inspired, to have joy in both work and play,
To be grateful for all that I have in my life and for every opportunity I'm given.
I intend to use my intuition and all my other spiritual gifts in all transactions today and to help wherever I can, even if that help means standing still and doing nothing, or letting go of someone I love.
I intend that there shall be peace and harmony and that wherever I can make restitution,
I shall have the courage and willingness to do so.
I intend to live my humanity and divinity simultaneously today and to move further along my path to enlightenment.
I re-dedicate my life to love, to peace, to harmony, to healing, to teaching, to my spiritual growth and the spiritual growth of others.

I found this poem I'd like to share with my Spark Family
Zephyrs Of Spirit
Zephyrs of Spirit
Like a breeze through my mind
With sails raised and ready
I grasp each whisper in kind
I yield to its presence
And merge with the flow
In a current of purpose
I'm compelled where to go
The breeze gently passes
I arrive in my place
Resting in the moment
This moment of grace
Awake and renewed
With heart full of zeal
I sail with direction
In a smooth even keel
What Is A Workout?
A workout is 25 percent perspiration and 75 percent determination. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts self-discipline. Doing it is easy once you get started.
A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind, and toughens the spirit. When you workout regularly , your problems diminish and your confidence grows.
A workout is a triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a winner- the mark of an organized person who has taken charge of his, or her destiny.
A workout is a wise use of time and an investment in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary.
A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to opportunity and success. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers than can release it.
A workout is a form of rebirth.
When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better, YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF.
Quote - Be sure to take care of yourself so that you can take care of the ones that need you.

Well, I've set a weight loss goal of 180 pounds. And to make this easier for me to accomplish I have set little goals to be met along my journey. I'm starting out small. After all we had to learn to crawl before we could walk. So this is my philosphy. I'm going to baby step my way slow steady and consistantly to a new vibrant healthier me!
OK, let's see, I start my mornings at 5 am.
5 to 10 min Stretch
1 hr of walking
1 hr of Cardio
