My Goals:
I'd like to reach a healthy weight and have a healthy BMI. That's it. I don't want to be model-thin, I don't want to wear a size zero or think that I will be more or less beautiful at a different weight. I love myself unconditionally regardless of the number on the scale.

By reaching a healthy BMI I hope to be able to take less of my medications, or go off of some of them completely. I hope to have the strength and energy to keep up with my children so that I can truly be present for them. And I hope to reverse my insulin resistance.

My Program:
Spark People is my program right now.

Personal Information:
Homeschooling mom to 2 beautiful boys. I love dogs, crows, faeries, and nature. I strive for a peaceful, purposeful existence.

Other Information:
My health challenges include hypothyroidism and insulin resistance (a form of pre-diabetes). I have a weakness for carbs and soda!

My strengths include a real love of healthy foods, my enthusiasm for walking and dancing, and my ability to keep a positive attitude.

I thought since we have a group in common maybe we would have other things in common too. I added you as a friend and look forward to talking to you.

Hey Elfie ~~

I luuuuuuuuuuuuv your Gibran quote. It really says it all in terms of what we do about whatever each moment brings to us, huh. I'm a big Gibran fan myself. I think his The Prophet is one of the greatest wisdom books ever written.

Great to see you on the Gratitudes Topic. Posting daily gratitudes has become a spiritual practice for me. Like Meister Eckhart said, "If the only prayer you say in your whole life is 'thank you,' that would suffice." And the days I feel least like doing it are the days I know the practice is most important.

Good for you following the peaceful earth-based spiritual path...and for taking on the homeschooling challenge. I'm impressed!

Beauty is...an ecstasty.
It is...a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted.
It is...an image you see though you close your eyes and a song your hear though you shut your ears.
It is...a garden for ever in bloom and a flock of angels for ever in flight.
(B)eauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil,
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.

~~ Kahlil Gibran, On Beauty in The Prophet

Keep dancing and laughing!

Blessed be!
