If there is one thing that I should be concerned about it's my health and well being. It's time that I put that first and learn to take time to do what's necessary to make myself into a better me. I'm gonna take this one day at a time. Any and all support is appreciated and welcome.

My favorite healthy lifestyle quote is "nothing tastes as good as thin feels," and though I've never known what it feels like to be thin; I cannot doubt that this is true.

I have learned to accept that I am an emotional eater and that when times get hard, food is my solace.

Fitness Minutes: 3,515

My Goals:
Quit Smoking: Achieved September 2009

Go Back to School (Hopefully for Culinary, maybe for Business)

Obtain a Healthy BMI

Find a job that better suits me



My Program:
Atkins

Trying to be active for at least 30 minutes a day

Personal Information:
I love to cook.

I was raised to be honest at all times. I am learning that others seldom are, and that at times... such as in job interviews... others can get ahead by lying.

I am blunt. I pride myself in giving good advice and being a great friend.

I have learned some hard life lessons and have sometimes had to make the same mistakes multiple times before learning from them. I know that you can't fix or help everyone, that people do not change, and that you can't expect everyone to be as kind or as thoughtful, or as good a person as you are. My dad taught me that if you expect nothing, you will be happy when you do get something... instead of spending your days unsatisfied waiting for something that may never come to fruition. I have found that the only person who can change you is you... no one else makes the decision for you. You must be your own rock.


Other Information:
When life gets me down my motto is "this too will pass."

Remember, life is what you make it.

    Hi Melanie!

    I only just learned about sparkgoodies today, so very late in the game I know! LOL But I see that you had sent me one back in May 2010 and I wanted to thank you so much for thinking of me back then!

    Your Thanksgiving dinner sounded awesome and healthy as well.
    I too love the green bean casserole recipes from Spark Pages.
    I make a cauliflower, broccoli and cheese dish I found there as well and it is soooo good.


    Many thanks for commenting on my Blog and for being a great friend here at Spark.
    Have a great week hon.

    Hugs
