I am a dreamer. I admit it. I build castles in the air. But, like the fog that rolls across the moors of my Scottish ancestors, my unfulfilled dreams evaporate, and I am left as overweight as ever.

On this, the beginning of 2013, I choose to put away my childish fantasies. I turned 60 years old in April. I will never be a size 2. I will never look like I did in my 20's. BUT....I can be healthy. I can be vivacious and full of energy. I can choose me. And so...I do. I choose to embrace the dreams I know can come true....I choose life. I choose to believe I CAN DO THIS!

I joined SP in 2010, but never did anything with it. I look forward to getting to know many of you and know I will lean heavily on you for support and encouragement....and encourage you to do the same as you get to know me. :)

Go mbeannaí Dia dhuit (Gaelic for May God Bless You)!!

Personal Information:
My name is Victoria. I am a Counselor at a treatment center/homeless shelter. I love God and my family (3 children/5 grandchildren) above all else. Thereafter, give me the love of learning, the sequestered nooks, the sweet serenity of books...mix in a contemplative morning hour spent with Earl Gray....and I am vastly content.
