Monday, January 29, 2007      0 comments

And there is yet more to learn. I have wonderful friends who love to come up, spend the weekend in the country, brunch with us and chat the day away. They are over 300 pounds each, and love to eat the good stuff. I noticed that I feel bad for ea... Read more

Gaining the energy to face the day

A light supper, a good night's sleep and a fine morning have often made a hero of the same man, who, by indigestion, a restless night and a rainy morning would have proved a coward. - Lord Chesterfield, diplomat We found out that ge... Read more

How do you keep everything in perspective?

Saturday, November 11, 2006      1 comments

Way back when I had my twin girls and life was crazy, I was overwhelmed, felt incapable, and like a horrible mother.... I learned slowly that I need to set boundaries for myself. I can't please everyone, I just need to please myself. If I am not... Read more

The Value of a Supportive "Family

Friday, November 03, 2006      1 comments

My family doesn't hold me accountable, because they just love me the way I am. So even if I were to tell them, that they need to help me watch out to stay away from chocolate, and remind me that a second helping is not really in my best interest... Read more

Do you really know what you're made of?

Friday, November 03, 2006      0 comments

My core is pure happiness and a deep rooted joy of live, and love of nature. Anything that comes my way gets filtered through that. I think my mother taught me a lot of that. She was never jealous of anyone, she was content with what she had, an... Read more

The beneficial beauty of selfless acts

Wednesday, November 01, 2006      0 comments

I have a little problem with the selflessness. A lot of times it starts out for the common good, but then people take for granted what you have to give, and start to expect it. I only like to be selfless when it actually is fun for me. I am not ... Read more

Thinking for yourself in the face of doubt

Monday, October 30, 2006      0 comments

Finding and celebrating the joy in life

Sunday, October 29, 2006      0 comments

A long time ago I realized that happiness is not something that some people have, and others don't like blue eyes or long legs. Happiness is something that comes from within, can't be bought, can't be coming from others. And in order to make any... Read more

What do you take a stand for?

Sunday, October 29, 2006      0 comments

I am not a big hero, but growing up, I realized that there are many people who are being pushed around by others, just because they don't wear the right clothes, don't fit in, are shy or insecure. That always bothered me. I still step up when I ... Read more

Amazing tools

Wednesday, October 18, 2006      0 comments

Spark has amazing tools. I am using the nutrition tracker all the time, not for the calories, but just to see if I am getting all the nutrition I need. It is actually much more effective than counting calories, or doing that Weight Watchers Poin... Read more
