I'm looking to improve my mental well-being by bringing my weight down to a level I can live with. If my weight goes up, my mood hits bottom. If my weight goes down, I can conquer the world.

Fitness Minutes: 15,021

My Goals:
To get in fitness minutes 5 times a week.
Lose weight slowly by changing some of my life style and eating habits. They die soooo hard.

My Program:
I'm watching my portion size now that I've measured and weighed for quite awhile. My appetite has lessened and I find myself leaving food on the plate rather than feeling like I have to eat it all. I'm still working on getting enough water and fiber.

Personal Information:
I live in the Tidewater area of Virginia and teach middle school English - 3 years from retirement (I hope!). I love to fish and garden when I have time - usually only during summer break. I also love to quilt but haven't had time since my kids were born - and they're 22 and 25.

Other Information:
Better to be silent and thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, emoticon
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, emoticon
all of which have the potential to turn a life around. emoticon

If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it. emoticon

This is my wish for you: emoticon
Comfort on difficult days, emoticon
Smiles when sadness intrudes, emoticon
Rainbows to follow the clouds, emoticon
Laughter to kiss your lips, emoticon
Sunsets to warm your heart, emoticon
Hugs when spirits sag, emoticon
Beauty for your eyes to see, emoticon
Friendships to brighten your being, emoticon
Faith so that you can believe, emoticon
Confidence for when you doubt, emoticon
Courage to know yourself, emoticon
Patience to accept the truth, emoticon
Love to complete your life. emoticon
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. emoticon emoticon
Have a wonderful and bless day. emoticon

Take time to laugh.
It is the music of the soul.
Take time to think.
It is the source of power.
Take time to play.
It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to read.
It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray.
It is the greatest power on Earth.
Take time to love and be loved.
It is a God-given privilege.
Take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to give.
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work.
It is the price of success.
Thanks for stopping by my page,have a great day. emoticon emoticon

In your birthday cake, I want to dedicate one slice to love, one slice to courage, one slice to determination, one slice to peace of mind and one slice to fortune. May all these slices come together to form a life for you which is sweeter than any cake in this world.
