happy mother's day........... lets' celebrate all women..........

Saturday, May 10, 2008

ANGELS ONLINE

There's a land where I go, when I need to share,
That's not on a map, yet exists everywhere;
Lots of names without faces, a curious place,
A virtual creation that's called cyberspace.

There are all sorts of people with cute little handles,
Like Jasmine and Sandman and Rosebud and Jangles;
Some can be snobs, though most are great fun,
And some of them just want to talk with someone.

Both good and bad, they all play a role,
And each one's unique, but part of the whole;
We chat and we laugh and often we sigh,
We flirt and we 'hug' and sometimes we cry.

We can't be heard and we can't be seen,
Still we can 'talk' right there on that screen;
But, all in all, the most curious part
Is the power this has to open our hearts.

We share with a stranger stuff we've concealed
From our closest of friends things we never reveal!
Our deepest regrets and most troubling fears,
The scars in our life which bring us to tears.

What gives them the power to reach into me
And show me the truths that I never see?
How do they manage to open my eyes
And make me confess the pain and the lies?

This must have been planned by Spirit above,
Few places on earth can bring so much love;
When I need some direction I know I can find
Those angels from heaven just waiting online.

~Author Unknown (Adaptation)

thanks for all the love,friendship and support that i have found in the special place.............
wishing everyone a wonderful mother's day...............a day to celebrate all women....................blessings and hugs...................lita

    I love you, Lita, you are so special to me. You know just what to say to make me feel better.

I'm off to the hospital, again, for a long day of sitting and waiting... I think I'll print this poem and take it for my folks to read.

Happy Mother's Day, my sweet freind!

    Hi Lita,

I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your knees. I hope the doctor has the perfect solution to making your days a lot easier, and more comfortable! You shouldn't have to have anything in the way of living!

Glad to hear that you are working on the nutritional requirements...I am doing the same thing, myself!

Thinking of you...

Karen

If we waited for the perfect time to lose weight, get healthy or whatever else we may face in life-let's face it...that time would never come... so how do we become what we need to be now? Simple, you do what you can with what you have... right now... be the best you today... and tomorrow, strive for a new best you

blessings and hugs ................lita

my journey continues,again and again...................

Saturday, April 12, 2008

i seem to have been asked this question a lot lately about what keeps me motivated????

if you can answer these questions truthfully everyday(below)...............there is no other option.............i just keep plodding along ..............i am treating this like a part-time job..................with pay of course(the pay is the weight loss).....................one last thing to is all the wonderful people here on sparkpeople,from the sparkguy,the coaches,the teams.the leaders and the many great friends and all the blogs i have read.....its everybody here that keeps me going everyday............without any of one them,this journey would taken a much different path...............for that i'm truly grateful .................


The 5 D's of the Weight Loss Journey

Desire: What exactly do you want?
Defense: Are you prepared for the temptations that are bound to come your way?
Dedication: How hard are you willing to work?
Determination: How long are you willing to keep working?
Decision-Making: Are you willing to take total responsibility for the choices you make?

good luck to you.................blessings and hugs.............lita

    Lita,

I LOVE your 5'D's of The Weight Loss Journey!! It really makes you realize that you have to cut through everything...get down to brass tacks...If we want it, then we have to work for it!! Very thought provoking!!

Reading your blog, just increased my motivation even more! I just wrote it all down for as Lita's 5'D's, which I plan to read out loud to myself every morning, and ten times a day if need be! It is a great reminder that it all starts with US!

Thank you for sharing! Congratulations on your 30 pounds!

    That is an awesome idea to bring your Sparkpeople tracked info in to your physician. I love the nutrition tracking especially. It keeps my honest and has opened my eyes so I can make wiser choices. Good luck with the adjustments, I know you'll do well.
