I'm so grateful for SparkPeople! I started (again) at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30+ so far, from my highest weight in January, 2013, of 288. Now I am headed to losing 100 more.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable weight loss.

If I can you ...

If I can you do it -- so can you. I've been though major life changes here, and I keep learning to love myself, treat myself well, and thus eat better and move my body.

Thanks for the friend request. I'm way behind on reading these things at the moment as I've been taking a blogging class. Don't know what got into me. I LOVE your wallpaper on here. It's just gorgeous!

This is the wonder: that of all the days of the year, the most important one is the everyday.

The everydays that are the most days of the year. These, the most days of our lives.

I think about these everydays that have me taking sun-dried sheets in off the line

or shoveling snow, these are the important days.

Everydays when I trip over excited little dogs

and the laundry mounts into its very own range and I finally think of something to make for dinner

when the head's weary tired and a wonderful aroma fills the air. All this.

This is the sacred everyday.
I can miss it. How holy the moments are.
How do we find ways to somehow live awake to the astonishing, ordinary wonder of all this?
How do we find ways to somehow live so that everyday is consecrated?

We must find ways.
For the ways we live our everydays is the way we live our lives.
Psalm 105:1
"Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what He has done."


and thanks for the everydays that you make into holidaze in my life! xxxo

"Making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually,you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin."
-Stephen Cherniske
