It's never too late to grow a little wiser

Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my partner and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my partner and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.

In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.

Who knew I would be so blessed?!

I believe that God brings certain people into our lives for a reason.
Sometimes, it's to help us see something new and wonderful.
Sometimes, it's to encourage us and to strengthen our faith.
And sometimes, it's just to remind us that we are never truly alone.

Whatever purpose God had in bringing us together,
I'm just grateful that He did....

You've been a real source of understanding and happiness in my life and it means more to me than I can ever say to have the gift of your friendship and caring.
