A new year and fresh beginning

I retired four years ago with the good intentions of getting healthier and taking care of myself. In order to become healthier, I would need to lose over 100 pounds. In the four years I have been a member of Spark People, I have lost 10 pounds thanks to this program. In total honesty, I have lost more than that but because of a lack of discipline, loss of commitment and motivation a lot of it has come back.

In total honesty, I have lost more than that but because of a lack of discipline, loss of commitment and motivation a lot of it has come back. One of the teams I belong to "Christian Living" has a challenge "What are each of you doing for you?" I am hoping that this will help me to stay focused and on track. The group itself is truly amazing as the people on it support and encourage each other on a daily basis. 2012 is the year I TAKE CARE OF ME!

hi .... thanks for taking the time to read & comment on my blog.

thank you Lynn, for your comments on my blog. The class I'm taking is COMM 100 Introduction to Speech Communication and as part of our final grade, we have to deliver a 5 to 8 minute speech on the topic of our choice.

In one of the chapters of our textbook, the authors talk about how attractiveness is a key factor in relationships .... whether personal or on the job, so that's what I'm referencing.

you pointed out an awkward sentence in the speech & altho I've tried 2 or 3 different ways to fix it, i'm just not able to come up with something better. maybe i just step away from it for a day or so ....

appreciate your feedback very much! Marie

Sorry so slow thanking you for the goodie. As you know from my post life has been chaotic. Thanks though because I always know even when I am off I can think of all of you and being praying in like spirit and know I can jump right back in when I am back. That is something to be thankful for.

Thanks so much for your expressions of sympathy on the chat thread. You asked about my sister...

I'm the oldest, Joanne is 3 years younger than me, then my brother Jim, and the youngest, Ginger. There's a picture of the four of us on my page. A couple of years ago my brother took my sister and I out to California to see her - it was the first time we were all together since my mom died in 1961. We have all seen each other many times, but since we all live so far apart, we just had never been able to get the four of us together all at the same time!

Thanks for your interest! Blessings and emoticon
