Thank you so much for adding me as a sparkfriend! Congratulations on the running and quitting bad habits! It gives me hope to read that you were once a smoker. I unfortunately, have yet to kick that habit completely. I am training for a 5 mile race on Thanksgiving and it is really giving me pause to think about how much damage the cigarettes have caused. I hope I can give it up for good in the near future:) 1552 days ago
Thank you for liking my bird blog, wish I had a better zoom on my camera. It sounds like you live in paradise. You have quite a assortment, I have wood peckers, sometimes we see one Eagle, no cardinals here. I think I need more feeders and maybe more bird attracting plants. Hope you are having a great Sunday. 1554 days ago
Thank you for all your kind words on my blog and photos.
Our friends/family get threatened sometimes when we change. They think they might have to change also. They end of becoming negative towards us or try to sabotage without sometime realizing it...that's might take on it.
I've lost over 80lbs myself and it also happened to me. It is sad, but once they realized that we are not asking them to change, but support us, it gets better. When they realize it's still us, life is good again!! LOL
Strangers have no expectation from us. All they know is we are in a race or a competition doing the best of our ability. They know that we have trained hard just like their loved one.
I run a free program for morbidly obese individuals to better their health. 32 very diverse people have come together and have formed a tight knit family. They support, push, call, laugh, cry, etc....with each other. It is totally awesome!!
