Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I chose the page name of Lothlorien because I am a Tolkein/Lord of the Rings fan and Lothlorien was the forest home of the elves where the hobbits stopped to rest and recuperate in the midst of their journey. I could use some rest and restoration. Lothlorien's trees had golden yellow leaves, my favorite color.
My username Fimbrethil is the name of the entwife of Treebeard in The Lord of the Rings. Ents are treelike people and Fimbrethil was one of the oldest, and her face and body were withered and browned from work in the sun, but Treebeard still thought she was beautiful. Ents can't bend very well in the middle and I can't either since I've gained so much weight. With this program I intend to go from being a stocky oak tree to being a lithe willow that bends but does not break. Then I will dance in the wind and praise the God who made me!
I want to reclaim the former slim and fit me. I want to handle stress without overeating. I want to break my aspertame addiction.
I'm a Christian. I want to honor God by taking care of my body. I want to be fit and healthy enough to keep moving and doing good things.
Thoughts for the Day:
-Who tastes dog food when it has a 'new & improved' flavour?
-Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
-If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhoea... does that mean that one in five enjoys it?
-If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?
-If the cops arrest a mute, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?

Success is a Choice
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."
Stopping by to wish you a great week, Sparkfriend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals...its up to you, and you know you're worth the effort, right?

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"
Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
