ZANYGIRL1 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Welcome to my page. I'm Karen, I'm 59, live in Illinois, and I started on SP in 2011. I was only on here for 6 months, then left until November, 2013. The first time I was dieting and trying to lose weight. But now I've made a commitment to myself to get healthy and fit, so I will live a longer and more enjoyable life. I'm here for the long haul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My goals are to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, exercise more and try getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night. I will have more later!
My name is Karen, I live in Illinois, not far from St. Louis. I'm married to the greatest guy on the planet (I might be alittle biased), we have 5 grown kids and 6 grandkids.
I no longer work, because of a back injury,
but I keep myself busy. I
like doing projects on my computer (like business cards & special occasion invitations) for family and friends, crafts, DIY projects, and I LOVE to cook!!

Success often comes to those who are too naÃ¯ve to know that what theyâ€™re trying to do is impossible. Gail Lynne Goodwin

Hey you. Yes you.
Stop being unhappy with yourself.
Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people
liked you as much as they like someone else.
Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you.
Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them.
Without those things, you wouldn't be you & why would you want to be anyone else?
Be confident with who you are, smile, it'll draw people in.
If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
tell yourself my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
I'm happy because I love who I am, I love my flaws,
I love my imperfections, they make me, me. & 'me' is pretty amazing!!
Remember, love yourself for who you are, not how others want you to be

To make your day a little brighter...
Begin with a little "spark"le, leave a little "spark"le wherever you go,
and don't ever let anyone dull your "spark"le.
