Along the many side paths of my Spark journey I have stopped loving myself. Dang it, I`ve even stopped liking myself and that is just awful. I think, deep down inside, I view my ``steps off the beaten pathway`` to be quite the negative thing as opposed to what they really are and that is ``taking the road less travelled``.
I mean, really, would I really want to just go from Point A to Point B without seeing all of the far more interesting places along the way (where is my flippin` question mark gone) Yes, in two years of Spark (eek!|) I have seen many sides of myself that I had thought were long gone. I felt the pride of joining a gym and for going to it, I felt the pride of walking all of those kilometres, I felt the pride of making choices and for seeing how they made me feel.
So, did I really stop loving myself (again, that blasted question mark has disappeared!) I prefer to think that I am taking some unexpected side trips with unplanned detours. I know I will get back to the beaten path but right now I am still experimenting with establishing small changes that I can carry with me and not burden me down.
And, one of these days when I reach my weight loss goal I will be able to look back and say `this journey was about so much more than weigh loss for me` and I just as proud of reaching my destination as I am of the many sidetrips I took along the way!

I just had a blog full of wit (ha!) and pictures written and somehow lost it all when I clicked on spell check. So here is a very condensed version of what it contained............
This is Ginger! We made the decision yesterday to go from fostering her to adopting her and have agreed that the adoption will be timed for our 12th wedding anniversary this weekend. Louisa was adopted for our 10th! John says we are not celebrating any more anniversaries with dogs BUT....ha!
Seriously, we think three is the limit for us but we are so happy to have her in our lives. Maddy has his nose out of joint a bit BUT has become a bit more cuddly since he sees Ginger climbing into my lap at every available moment!
More about them all later! Here is a cute picture of the three of them looking in through the patio screen door at me......
Bye..I'm off to play with the three fur bundles
