Happy & Healthy Holidays!!

Wishing you a very Happy & Healthy Holiday Season, no matter what holiday you celebrate, or don't celebrate! I am a Christmas person myself! But, I accept and like to learn about every religion and celebration!

Hi, my name is Melissa. I am nearing 50 (just 6 short months away) and am totally blind from Type I diabetes. BTW, no matter what you read or see, Type I Diabetes cannot be cured by diet and exercise. Diet & exercise can help control it, but as of now, nothing can cure it other than a pancreas transplant!

I teach psychology part time at our local community college and I am a licensed professional counselor, but have not worked as a therapist in awhile now.

Member Since: 3/28/2008

SparkPoints: 158,598

Fitness Minutes: 178,932

My Goals:
My goal over the Christmas holiday is to stay on track, watch my portions and follow my Weight Watchers and 100 Day plan.

My Program:
I am a member of Weight Watchers and I just started the 100 Days of Weight Loss program. I will be using both programs as ways to keep me fit and not gaining over the holidays!

Personal Information:
I am totally blind as a result of Type 1 Diabetes and living the wild life in my younger days! I "celebrated" 45 years of being diabetic this May. I live in lovely South VA and have a wonderful husband and spoiled mutt named Sassy. She is a handful, but it is worth it!

Other Information:
I love reading and especially enjoy psychological thrillers, mysteries, stories featuring dogs and the occasional occult novel like Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I am an avid belly dancer, but have only recently started to dance again since my mother's death on 12/12/12! I still have not gotten back into belly dancing mostly due to transportation problems since my dad had a stroke in 2013 and he was my ride! I enjoy water! I love swimming, water aerobics, water jogging and more! I walk a mile with leslie Samsone everyday and sometimes more. I actually enjoy exercising! I love summer!! I also try to make it to Curves at least 3 times a week and do the Curves Smart program which pushes me to improve my workout each time! Plus I am an avid follower of Jessica Smith's video workouts!

Just a little progress

Even just a little progress, is progress. Even the smallest step forward is very much worth taking, because it maintains a positive momentum.

If you’re not moving ahead as fast as you’d like, don’t get discouraged. Get creative, get inspired, get focused and get truly enthusiastic about the direction you’re going.

Then, take the next step, and keep yourself moving steadily toward the goal. Remind yourself that even when you’re going slowly, you’re going solidly in the direction you’ve chosen.

Yes, the setbacks will certainly come, and when they do, you’ll know exactly how to quickly recover because you’ve been doing it all along. Get back up, face forward, and take the next step.

Even if it were possible, you wouldn’t want all your dreams to be fulfilled at once. It’s far more satisfying to savor each milestone as it comes, and to know that there will be many more.

Spend this day celebrating, enjoying and making use of your chance to make a little progress. Feel how great it feels to continue moving forward.

— Ralph Marston
