well i feel overwhelmed and am speechless as to what to ssy...................i recieved and e-mail from sparkpeople..............i thought i had done something wrong...............same kind of feeling when you are stopped by the police.............
well i was shocked and still a bit numb..............i was told that people had voted and i was a sparkpeople motivator........................am learning something new everyday and that day i learned .............................
would like to say a thank you to everyone who voted in this positive manner..........this is truly a wonderful place where people can gather from the far corners of the world for a common goal................would love to add creating peace in the world by our example here..............one person at a time..............perhaps one day..............peace will prevail everywhere....................thanks once again for giving me such an honour..........
blessings and hugs to all...............lita

Congratulations on being named a Sparkpeople motivator. You work so hard for all of us on this team.
Also, thank you for the poem you wrote on Cookie3201's blog. It is very motivating to me. I'm adding it to this comment so others can see it too. Maybe you posted it another time--but this is the first time I've seen it. It really is just what I need right now. Thank you!!!!

I wish I may, I wish I might

Lose one-half or a pound tonight.

If I happen to stay the same,

I'll be happy I did not gain.

IF the scale goes the wrong way,

I'll brush myself off and say, That's okay--

Soon I'll come back a little thinner.

Because I have the power to be a winner.

i borrowed this from another team i'm on and it speaks to how i feel right now...........


I'M HAPPY JUST BEING ME

Why not?

There's no one else like YOU!
No one else knows how to BE YOU!

They can't even imitate You very well, can they!

Why not be happy about being Yourself?
You're GREAT at it!

And YOU don't have to be like anyone else!
You can simply be yourself.
What a relief!

I'M HAPPY JUST BEING ME

    Thats gorgeous. I sent it to a friend who's been feeling really down lately. His step kids make him feel like 3rd rate. He's short and has a stammer, but is a thoroughly nice guy all the same. He has framed it and attached it to his computer. Thx for the piece of moving "poetry".

    Hi Lita
That is a beautiful sentiment....we have to be happy with ourselves...then we can move on to making our selves into healthier people so we can really enjoy our lives....
Since I've joined SP I have learned to be happy with me but to make me more healthier....
Keep at it!

    Hi Lita... I'm so sorry your knees are painful. But, the truth is we'd probably all be better off if we spent more time in the pool where there isn't so much abuse taking place on our joints. I admire your commitment and discipline, also your courage... knee pain can be so debilitating. Keep up the good work, my friend.

Love to you,
Dana

    Hi Lita- Just checking out your spark page and blogs - Have you been checked for rheumatoid arthritis - that can be very debilitating .... Read up on it if you haven't - I suffered with it for years before they thought to see if that was the problem - The Orthopedic doc said it was movie goers knee - NOT!!
Take care and have a wonderful day - Thanks for being my spark!!!
