Knitting a Better Me

After 50+ years of frustrated attempts, my real life began on February 24, 2013. Knitting even the largest and most intricate and beautiful items is accomplished the same as knitting the small, easy items--one stitch at a time. This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

"Don't take a clock on this journey, take a compass. It's the direction you're moving in that matters, not the time it takes to get there."

My Goals:
Improved well-being, and serenity in my life.

KEEPING IT POSITIVE!

Becoming a kinder, gentler, better me.

My Program:
Making more healthful choices, one meal at a time. I focus on whole foods, legumes, fresh organic produce, organic meat.

I follow the 3-0-1 plan: THREE healthy meals in normal portions a day, NOTHING in between (snacks do NOT work for me!), ONE day at a time!

Lack of will power has been my dilemma my entire life. But THERE IS A SOLUTION! It's so simple, really, Not easy, but simple.

IN IT TO WIN IT, ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Personal Information:
57 year old with multiple health disabilities and challenges.

I knit. I love to knit. I am an artist and I love color.

I love my furry, four legged animal companions dearly.

I share my heart and a home with my partner of 20 wonderful years, and now legal spouse for 1!

Other Information:
I used to think that if I could only find the right eating plan, all would be well. Now I know better.

I am willing to do whatever it takes, and ask for the willingness to be willing where I still have walls.

Thanks for the note, my friend. I am sorry to be so long responding but I have had a bit of a virus for 36 hrs and am just getting back to SParking well now. AM nearly ready to start my shutdown, tea and meds for the night, so will get back to you hopefully tomorrow if I still feel as well as I do now. Thanks for the post to my page and I welcome a friendship with you,


Hugs, Gini emoticon

Seeing the beautiful background for your page has inspired me to get out my crochet hook and get busy. I don't knit currently but hope to get back to it again in the future. Let's be emoticon spark friends. You inspire me.
