A New Beginning

Hello from Northern Alberta, Canada. I am married, with 3 beautiful children. I love animals, gardening, and country music.

After 10 years of working as a zookeeper, I recently decided to stay home and focus on re-creating myself so that my outsides match what i feel i am on the inside.

I have always struggled with my weight and have been on diets off and on since i was 12 years old. Even when i worked at the zoo (a VERY physically demanding job) and jogged 10 miles/day i could barely maintain a size 12. Now that i am not working at the zoo, I have gained weight again, and need to figure out how to at least get back to where i was.

Happy Birthday to You!! Sorry I am running late with your birthday wishes!!

Born April 22, you are definitely built for action, not for talk -- though, when a situation requires it, you are able to talk well, make your point, and move on swiftly. When it comes to ideas, you are never one for merely hashing them out or exploring them in an academic manner; you want something to come of them, and you are quick to put even the most unusual, unlikely or far-fetched idea into practice to see what will come of it. You believe that life is meant to be lived in an active, aggressive manner -- not to be thought about or overanalyzed.

You may prove to be quite a lover -- whether you are attractive in a traditional or classic sense or not. There is something about you that the opposite sex is likely to find quite appealing -- even irresistible -- and you're sure to break many hearts in your lifetime, including your own.

Hope your day was wonderful!

"As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can;
by making the best choices, by making the most of the talents we've been given."
-Mary Lou Retton

Hope you are doing well! I am no longer co-leader of Goodbye Fat, I'm Taking My Life Back. As a matter of fact, the team is now called The Lighter Side of Life.
So how are you doing? I hope you are still trying to reach your goals. Don't ever give up!
Hugs,
Pixie

Happy Birthday to You!!

Birthday Blessings

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings now,
As your birthday nears.
Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.
Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"
By Joanna Fuchs

Hope your day is wonderful!

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself:
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
-- Groucho Marx

Now if a guy name GROUCHO can have such a great attitude, why can't we? Let's commit to making the choice to be happy each day as we continue on our journey toward better health!
Wishing you a happy Wednesday!
Hugs,
Pixie

"The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places." -Unknown

Tempting as those parking places may be, they slow you down from getting to your destination. My hope for you today is that you will resist those parking places, and keep moving forward on your journey!

Miss you!!!
