There's nothing quite like a sparkly-spangly cat's ears headband. Three cheers for being silly.





Me in Bangkok July, 2005





This is my bike from Ayuthaya, Thailand. It's a personal symbol that reminds me "I can do anything!"



I have 6 pics in my gallery

Laura's Labors

I've been a spark person since 2006, but haven't been a regular user in YEARS. For the first time in my life I am bigger than I should be, and not by 5-10 pounds but by at least 30. And I'm a pretty small gal (average weight most of my adult life: 105 pounds).

I don't recognize the person I see in the mirror. I'm tired of having to figure out how to camouflage my problem areas. I'm tired of jackets and shirts not fitting my enlarged chest. I want to go back to being me.

I don't recognize the person I see in the mirror. I'm tired of having to figure out how to camouflage my problem areas. I'm tired of jackets and shirts not fitting my enlarged chest. I want to go back to being me.

My obstacles include how much weight I have to lose, medication--that I MIST take--that increases my appetite and I swear slows my metabolism, age, and a serious lack of time. But I miss me. And I know she's somewhere under here.

Hey Loulou:

First, is that Dept. of Doing picture from Stockholm...?

And, I'd love a walking buddy! I live near the capital crescent trail, and I also enjoy just picking a "state" Ave and walking all the way downtown.

If you're up for it, we should plan a walk when the weather makes up its mind!

Hi Laura,
Thanks for the welcome, good luck with your final months of law school...my brother is going through the same thing with engineering school. I am glad I'm done, but now I am longing to go back for my Masters degree. I am from NJ. By the way, how did you know that my nickname was Zippy? I haven't heard that in years!!!
