What you think, you become

Cultivate optimism and let it drive you forward.

Health is not a matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

We can't control the waves, but we can learn to surf

Turn a setback into a comeback

Success requires backbone, not wishbone

You went to Costa Rica?! How have I drifted off so far into lala land that I didn't know that? I think I missed responding to your last email, and fell out of touch. Hope you had a fantastic time! I'm not one for travel, but that's a place that entices me.

Thank you! With our beloved exchange daughter leaving in June, this gives me something to look forward to beyond that and soften the blow.

Thanks for your beautiful note and for adding me as a friend! Back at ya!

I collect Spark Friends like candy....calorie free and they always give me something to chew on.

I am loving your insights.

You might check out IOWL Team.

Inside Out Weight Loss (IOWL) is based around overcoming those "internal" issues that stop us from achieving our goals (weight loss or otherwise!!)

The team is quiet, but you will find links to free podcasts by Renee Stephens there a wealth of information on past threads and members always ready to "support and be supported" when needed.

Renee uses Neurolinguistic Programming techniques in our pursuit of attaining and MAINTAINING our naturally slender selves.

It has been a great help for me - although I have been listening for years and making incremental changes...for whatever reason, this year is the year that it seems to all be "falling into place" so to speak!!

Go figure! I'm glad I did not give up!!

Looking forward to getting to know you!
