6/6/12 I am once again back to work on finding balance in my life. My SparkPage stats show my being a member since 2007, but the truth is that I have been mostly inactive. Hence the need to find balance and acceptance. This time I am starting at 226 lbs. I have actually been as high as 252 lbs. Ouch!!!!

Earlier Post - I once again am back to regain freedom from my overeating and to look at the reasons behind all of the weight. I know that there is a beautiful light inside ...

I know that it shows that I have been with Spark People since 2007 but that really isn't correct. I signed up originally in 2007 but did not actually use the site until April 2010 and then only for a few months consistently, until now September 2011. I am a very slow learner!!!!

From Eddles08's Sparkpage: "Quit trying to find yourself & start creating yourself" - Love it!!!!

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. - Anatole France


"The person standing on the mountain top did not get there by falling. You have to climb to where you want to go--and you cannot get there by climbing over others. It is about climbing with others, side by side, and even pulling some others up with you."

"I love myself--body, mind, and soul. When you are at peace with yourself and love yourself, it is virtually impossible to be self-destructive." - Dr. Wayne Dyer

I have carried a child within my body.....I have comforted a baby upon my chest.....I have loved a child with all my heart....My body is not magazine perfect, but when I look in the mirror I see a mother, and there is no greater honor or blessing. - Amanda, my beautiful daughter

Even while you strive to improve your life, part of you is whole, well, and perfect right where you stand. - Alan Cohen

Thank you for checking out my latest work and leaving such lovely comments.
I love to create , wheater it's painting, clay, pottery, or jewelry. the mix of textures, colors, it's madding at times. the decisions, but I am happy with the end results.
Right now I still want to be working on something, but I also know that I need some down time. Rest and get ready for the long day tomorrow.
I have 3 hours to unload and turn a 12 by 12 foot grassy area in to an attractive booth that will grab peoples attention so they stop and buy.
Good night and take care.
