I'm a children's librarian, 43 years old, and married to a man who has loved me thick, thin, back to thick..and this time on my way to thin to stay! (All time heaviest on 6-15-10 was 253.2)

I'm also the proud mom to a son born to me in 2001 and a daughter from China. (adopted 2008) And I'm trying to get as healthy as I can for myself and my family.

Because Marine Corps Marathon will be my first marathon I secured my own entry so I could raise funds for two charities... one to represent each of my children:
Love Without Boundaries for Georgia
Organization for Autism Research for Thomas
I hope to raise at LEAST 500$ for each charity. (URLS to follow once I personalize the pages)

Hey there!

I am sorry that I have been gone for a while, I had some challenges and set backs this past year, and I posted a blog about it ysterday...

But I am back, I re-started this healthy journey last Thursday and I am glad to be back! I need to get healthy and lose this weight.

I am looking forward to cheering on my fellow Sparkers, and hearing from them.

Please let me know how you have been, and what's new with your journey.

Please Keep in touch,
Hugs,
Lisa

Hey, thanks for the comment! I have done a few relays. Some teams are out there to win, most are out there to push each other and have a great time doing it! We were not trying to win, no one cared that I was running slow. We had a lot of fun though!

Don't be afraid/nervous about joining a team, most are just like you, out there doing the best that they can.

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

Success is a Choice
-Unknown
"Today I will make many choices, and each will have a consequence. Today I can choose to tell myself that I am worth the effort, or I can tell myself doesn't matter, I'll do it tomorrow. Today I can choose to journal, or I can choose not to. Today I can choose to drink my water, or I can choose to be
dehydrated. Today I can choose to stay in my points range, or I can choose to hinder my goals. Today I can choose to be more active, or I can choose to take the easy way. Today I can choose to be motivated, or I can choose to tell myself "I can't." Today I can choose success. IT IS MY CHOICE."

Stopping by to wish you a great week, Sparkfriend! Keep doing your best to reach your goals...its up to you, and you know you're worth the effort, right?
Hugs,
Pixie
