In sickness and in health

Wednesday, February 21, 2007      1 comments

I have been sick for a few days now, and guess what I have found out about myself. I am no longer on a diet, I am living Spark. Every decision I make, I think through first. I consciously drink my water or herb tea, I have a stretch band next to... Read more

About happiness

Sunday, February 18, 2007      0 comments

My mantra to my girls..... "The only thing you should strive to achieve in life is HAPPINESS". Many of my friends do not agree. They think that that would lead to people who are essentially stepping on other people to get what they want. But tr... Read more

The weight ticker fiasco.

Monday, February 05, 2007      0 comments

I just read a post in one of my groups where someone pointed out to me that my weight is creeping up and I should watch what I eat. That really hurt my feelings a lot. It actually surprised me how much I felt my privacy was invaded. I took the t... 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
