hi everyone!
I am a 55yr old that wants to be healthy and enjoy a beautiful life. I am trying to get back into better physical shape. I was very motivated a few yrs ago and reached my goal weight. Then with some very hard losses in my life it crept back in. My beautiful 21 yr old son died in 2012 and i now reach out to other grieving parents to help each other. I have met wonderful people on Sparkpeople.

Sparkfriends have made life easier in so many ways. It is not just about the weight loss. Its is about the sharing and caring of your fellow human beings. Giving love and support to others is so much easier then being miserable. I say Sunshine works everytime!

I am now on a path of rediscovering who i am now thru meditation ,yoga, spirituality...

    Hi beautiful Maureen...thanks so much for your concern with the forthcoming hurricane barreling our way. It is scary because you never know what they will do. We've been through two really bad ones and believe me the memories are still as real as yesterday.

    Mostly it will be the East Coast that is affected and I have many friends that live over there but we are expected to have heavy rains and really heavy winds so we are hunkering down.

    Thanks again for your are a friend supreme and I will always be so happy our spark paths crossed. How are things going for you my dear friend? I know the holidays are coming up which will be hard...they always your daughter doing okay...I pray for your family every night! emoticon I know our angels up above are so happy we met and forged a friendship and I also know they will do everything they can to keep us safe.

    Much love! emoticon

    Happy new week my dear friend. Do you smell fall in the air yet? It's still hotter than Hades in my neck of the palm trees I am SO ready for a whiff of cooler air. How's Champ doing?

    Oh golly totally side tracked on getting back to you. I'd think about a silk plant as a great filler.

    Or you could move the bookcase down a little towards the kitchen area if it will fit and put a nice console table with a nice lamp and maybe a lower shelf for some baskets or maybe even some books to add a little texture to the room. I'd put a round mirror to break up all the angles in the room...I think you need an interesting round mirror above the console to soften that area..could be very interesting and will add more light in the room reflecting off the light in the room..

    Hope these thoughts might help my friend. emoticon

    It's tough having things down low when you have a new puppy at home. What name did you choose...he's certainly a sweetie pie! emoticon

    Dearest Maureen my friend. How are you? I love the pics of the newly remodeled home. I bet you are loving it also! I survived the vacation 'from hell' and learned some very important lessons after 38 long years of drudgery. Don't do what makes you is short and we have to do MORE of what makes US happy! That's my new theme for the rest of this year and ALL of 2017!

    DH will no longer 'guilt me' into seeing his miserable mother and sister and I won't waste my valuable free time and money paying to be miserable...won't happen again. I just wish I would have learned this lesson about 38 years ago! Luckily I was able to blog out the frustration as I always do....better than eating it out...but I did plenty of that back on the healthy wagon! emoticon
