On a happy occasion I'm trying to hide in black. :-( I'm working to change this.





This silhouette of me outlines the reason why I want to improve myself.





Gorgeous Mexico- the land of our daughter's heart.



I have 7 pics in my gallery

Will I be good to my future self?

Today is July 24th, 2014 and it will be my third attempt to make a lifestyle change for good.
This is the beginning of an improved me. I do this for me and my family.

(Oh how sad- note to self of 7-24-14. I didn't follow through with those good intentions.)

Okay 4 times the charm?...today is Oct. 18, 2014. Half of me doesn't want to try any longer. My other half is here typing and thinking that I'm getting started again. Both of my kids have seriously encouraged ...

Okay 4 times the charm?...today is Oct. 18, 2014. Half of me doesn't want to try any longer. My other half is here typing and thinking that I'm getting started again. Both of my kids have seriously encouraged me to do something about my weight. My mom has encouraged me for years and even said she would do it for me if she could. My husband has finally said I should work on it a bit.
And I am very discouraged right now because my clothing is fitting snug, which means I'll have to move up a size and buy new clothes. :-( I can't hide any more. I'm getting older and much larger-oh my goodness-NOT a good combination is it? A few years ago I managed to work off 12 pounds. It was really hard work and took awhile. But worth it. One part of me wants to be wildly successful and reach my goal. But the other part of me has unfortunately been the successor.
I must care, must be strong and driven, must not be lazy nor give up when I fall down.

Personal Information:
.
.
I live in a midwestern city located along the rolling and changeable waters of the Mississippi.
Interestingly, the river here flows east and west.

I am passionate about God, Family, Art (visual mostly, but love all other art forms, such as music, cinema, theatre, poetry...)

I have a darling, handsome, loving husband, along with one lovely step daughter and two adorable step-grandchildren, and two amazing kids; a son and a daughter, and now a new little grandson!! We are all artists, each working in different media with unique styles.

I also love food and love to cook!

(My downfall is tasting while I'm preparing food. And I am a stress eater.)

Hi there! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my page. I am glad my post was helpful to you. Your words to me come at a great time, as today is one of those days when I have not met my goals for myself, though you reminded me to look at the successes I have had in the past and not let one challenging day get in the way of a bigger journey.

I have added you as a SparkFriend and hope you do the same. I look forward to getting to know you!!

Thanks for your comment on my "Clean-Machine Projects (and pics!) YAY! aka... Super Hero Status :p" blog! :) My son is totally adorable and always wants to take pics. He's like "pose, mom" while I am doing strength training and I'm like "noooooo, stoppppppp" hahaha. I know I look like a mess when I workout. :p

Just wanted to return some well wishes to you. Thanks again! XO
