I see humor in my life and try to share it. This Page is a NO NEGATIVES ZONE. I love the Caribbean!

Welcome to all who come here. I am an emotional eater who can go off on binges. I am working to control that by remembering that one day at a time is all I can do. I am evaluating my feelings that cause me to want to eat. Asking "Why do you want to eat?” I try to remember to acknowledge that I do not want to eat because I am hungry. I am on a journey to change my behavior. I must deal with the reason(s) and the emotion(s) because they will still be there if I eat or do not eat.

Welcome to all who come here. I am an emotional eater who can go off on binges. I am working to control that by remembering that one day at a time is all I can do. I am evaluating my feelings that cause me to want to eat. Asking "Why do you want to eat?” I try to remember to acknowledge that I do not want to eat because I am hungry. I am on a journey to change my behavior. I must deal with the reason(s) and the emotion(s) because they will still be there if I eat or do not eat.

As an emotional eater, I know the comfort I have gotten when eating to relieve stress, pain or sorrow. I had also gotten into the habit of overeating to celebrate a good event in my life. The key is to take it one day at a time. If I fall off the wagon today, I must get up, dust myself off and get back on the road to success. All I can do is take it one day at a time. The past is yesterday and cannot be changed. The future is tomorrow and can only be affected by what is done today.

Sometimes I have to reset the counter to Day 1. The key is to reset the counter. Over time I will have to reset the counter less and less. Before I know it I will have achieved a lifestyle change.

SparkPoints: 19,803

Fitness Minutes: 18,651

My Goals:
I must lose weight; get into a thinner, healthier shape. I want to be a better me.

My Program:
Eating right and exercising more.

Tracking what I do.

Not giving up.

Personal Information:
I am from Maryland, have traveled quite a bit across the U.S.A. and the world. I live in Maryland because there is no place like home. I enjoy living near Annapolis. I like the colonial, historical and cultural aspects of Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. If you cannot find something to do that you enjoy around here, the only reason is that you are not trying. However, when I retire I am moving to the west coast of Florida or the Florida Keys or the U.S. Virgin Islands or some other place warm all year because I want to live in warm weather not far from the water and after all home is where the heart is.

I like to read. I enjoy all sports and love the water. My favorite teams are the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens, A.C. Milan and the University of Maryland’s Womens' and Men’s Basketball teams. I tend to think outside box. Instead of asking "Why", I seem to always ask "Why not".

Other Information:
My family consists of: my Wife, Oldest Daughter, Son, Youngest Daughter and 3 dogs (2 female mixed breed Labs and a female mixed breed terrier) . I love them all, however not always in the order listed.

Fourth of July
What a fun day!
we all have to say.
The best July 4th ever.
From fireworks to picnic lunch,
we sure did do a bunch.
The memories we'll have forever.
Spending time with family and friends,
with whom the fun never ends.
We celebrated the U.S.A today.
~Author: Heather Law Howe~
Have a Happy, Healthy & safe 4th of July!

Pat

“If you leave your child with a positive attitude, you leave them with an estate of incalculable value.”

Mac Anderson and Lance Wubbels, Authors

It is the unseen that has more value than all the silver and gold.
Have a blessed day.

A lion caught a bull and ate and ate until he was quite full, then he decided to let the world know so he roared and roared and roared till a hunter heard him and came and shot him.
The moral of the story, is keep your mouth shut if it is full of bull.

Your chuckle for today!

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie
