"Think about how different life could be if you stopped emphasizing the end, the fix or getting there, and began enjoying each step of the way. If one moment was as good as the next. If the goal in life was not to fix yourself but to transform yourself. Here, after all, is a miracle; you are already on the journey. You already know and already have everything you need to continue. Relax, breathe, be kind to yourself and everyone else. Oh, there's one more thing; enjoy the ride!"
My goals are 1) to lose 78 kg, 2) to eat healthier, 3) to start an exercise program, 4) to have a cleaner house, 5) to finish all my cross stitch projects.
I have broken my weight loss large goal into smaller goals of 5 kg each.
For exercise, as I have been completely inactive, I am doing what I can right now. For my Fast break goal, I have walked everyday successfully and I'mcontinuing to do this decreasing time and increasing distance.
My name is Jackie. I live in Italy with my husband and our cat. I'm from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (born in Chicago, Illinois). I'm happy here in a peaceful, little village in the mountains of Abruzzo.

Thank you for your kind thoughts concerning my sister's passing. It is devastating to our family and I am doing my best with to cope with it. I am crushed. I am very thankful to have had her in my life and have wonderful memories that I will cherish always.
