Ready for "another" change of life

Was time to update this since the last update started out that I have been on SP for over a year...........well is closer to 5 years now. Procrastination seems to be an obstacle. OK now...........when I joined SP I was heading into the 170's and pre-diabetic ...........my entire family diabetics and on insulin. Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you ...

Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you Lord! I have managed to lose some weight and have had set backs like surgeries and illness, and yes just plain laziness. I am responsible for what I have become and what I can be. With help of this wonderful site and even more wonderful people that I have met on this journey I hope to be around a few more years so might as well make them as healthy as possible. Would appreciate a "boot" along the way and if I can give a helping hand to you along the way I will gladly do so. We can do this together!!!

The Positive Weight Loss Approach

Once you have made up your mind to lose weight, you should make that commitment and go into it with a positive attitude. We all know that losing weight can be quite a challenge. In fact, for most of us, it can be downright tough. It takes time, practice and support to change lifetime habits. But it's a process you must learn in order to succeed. It is said that if you do something for 21 days it will become a habit. You and you alone are the one who has the power to lose unwanted pounds.

The positive thinker.....
.....sees the invisible.....
..........feels the intangible.....
...and achieves the impossible!

Blessed are those who can

give without remembering

and take without forgetting.


I had to think about this one for a couple moments and then realized this is very profound and revela the secret of what makes a great person.

May your Monday be as Marvelous as you are!!

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.................

"The ability to be genuinely grateful for the things that we have and the people we love, as well as for simply being alive and conscious, will do more for bringing a true feeling of happiness to us on a regular basis than almost anything else."
Cary David Richards, The Happiness Habit

Wishing you Sunday Blessings and may you have a blessed week as we come to the end of another month. Are you closer to your goals? If not, take time to reflect on why you aren't and work harder as we soon start the month of August. All things are possible if you keep your eye on the prize and the goal you want to achieve.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. ~Henri Nouwen

Thank you for being a caring friend who is there when I need it.

Wishing you a Serene Sunday.
