Since this is a new year, I thought it would be a good time to update my page! Welcome! I love this page! It's a place that gives me the opportunity to meet Sparkers who, like me, are changing their lives one day at a time. A place for me to receive the motivation and encouragement I need to keep going on my journey. A place that encourages me to motivate others to reach their goals. I hope this page is as inspirational to you as it is to me! Please come back often to visit!

A little info about me....my name is Laura. I am 60 years young, a wife, mother and grandmother. My hobbies are gardening, jewelry making and crocheting. I love nature and enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors. I love animals and am "mom" to a 2 yr old Peke-a-Pap and a 2 year old Bengal/Tabby cat.

The following poem about success is a favorite of mine so I thought I would share it.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again


Member Since: 7/9/2011

My Goals:
1) 4-8 glasses of water.
2) 3 healthy meals
3) Stay within my daily WW points.
4) Take all prescribed meds/supplements.
5) Track all foods
6) Track fitness
7) Walk at least 10,000 steps each day.
8) Use spark tools to my
advantage and
connect with teams
and members.



My Program:
Keep a daily diary. Be honest and accountable for each day's events. Track everything I eat and watch my portion sizes. Concentrate on eating more veggies and fruits and drink more water. Set small, realistic goals then work to achieve and build on them. Always remember that "My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today."



Personal Information:
In Oct 2011 my husband retired after putting in 30 years as a firefighter/EMT. We decided we needed a change so we sold our house on the Massachusetts seacoast and bought one in a small rural town in the Berkshires. We love it here. Life moves slower and we are surrounded by beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife.


Other Information:
"Our lives improve only when we take chances... and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves." ~ Walter Anderson

    I came across this yesterday and just felt I had to share it with all of you

    ********************TRAIN OF LIFE***********************

    ---Some folks ride the train of life, Looking out the rear.
    Watching miles of life roll by, And marking every year.
    They sit in sad remembrance, Of wasted days gone by.
    ---And curse their life for what it was, And hang their head and cry.

    ---But I don't concern myself with that, I took a different vent.
    I look forward to what life holds, And not what has been spent.
    So strap me to the engine, As securely as can be.
    ---I want to be out in front, To see what I can see.

    ---I want to feel the winds of change, Blowing in my face.
    I want to see what life unfolds, As I move from place to place.
    I want to see whats coming up. No looking at the past.
    ---Life's too short for yesterday, It moves along too fast.

    ---So if the ride gets bumpy, While you are looking back.
    Go up front, and you may find, Your life has jumped the track.
    Its all right to remember, That's part of history.
    ---But up front's where its happening. There's so much mystery.

    ---The enjoyment of living, Is not where we have been,
    It's looking ever forward, To another year and ten.
    It's searching all the byways, Never should you refrain.
    ---For if you want to live your life, You gotta drive the train.
    --------------------AUTHOR UNKNOWN----------------

    ---As I read this, I realized, I cannot live in the past,
    --------and I cannot foresee the future, --------
    ---------But I can live for every second---------
    ------------and every minute of today.-----------
    """"Enjoy today, and everyday of your life.""""

    It is amazing how a plan helps turn fear into butterflies – life plans built from excitement rather than . . . worries. Michelle Vandepas
