Constant creative progress -not perfection

I'm here to improve my health by developing better eating and exercise habits with the encouragement & support of the Spark community, my friends and family. I'd also like to start reinserting more creativity back into my life as well (especially, music, dancing, and art).

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO" ...

-CONSTANT PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
My 2010 profile image was a drop of water. The motivating Latin phrase I've attached with the photo is:

"GUTTA CAVAT LAPIDEM, NON VI, SED SAEPE CADENDO"

which essentially means :

"THE DROP OF WATER HOLLOWS OUT THE STONE BY FREQUENT DROPPING, NOT BY FORCE; CONSTANT PERSISTENCE GAINS IN THE END."

These words inspired me to think about becoming a steady, constant drop of water in my own life, and the lives of my family and friends. Water can be so many things: refreshing, cleansing, energizing, powerful and basically the essence of life itself. Thanks for being a part of my journey.


- FINALLY GETTING STARTED, March 1, 2009 (270#)

When I first created my SparkPage, I thought I needed to post the clip of the little fat, sleeping gopher with the statement

"I WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE. IF I COULD JUST GET STARTED."

So I got started with SparkPeople with long term goal of achieving a balanced healthy lifestyle. I weighed in at 270#, set a short term goal of 255# and long term goal of 125#. Well I reached my 1st short term weight goal of 255# on 5/28/09. Thanks to SparkGuy for conceiving this little gem and to all my "SparkPeeps" who have and will encourage me along the way.

Love Yah!

still love visiting your page --- always to decorative.

Did you see my comment about the barn pic --- I pass that barn at least once or twice a year -- it's really close to SNOWSHOE Ski Resort --- I go up there for conferences and last year just for some fun --- but NOT skiing.

Here's to ONE MORE DAY ABOVE THE ROSES!

Work like you don't need money, don't know how much things cost. emoticon
Love like you've never been hurt, love like you've never lost. emoticon
Dance like no one's watching, as often as you can, emoticon
And when you drink, drink like, you're a true-blood Irishman! emoticon

Live every day like it's your last,
They're going by, way too fast! emoticon
