However, I will not let people walk all over me and use me as a door mat. That's not as easy to do when it comes to family though. Something I need to work on more. It's finding the right amount of diplomacy or whatever you want to call it so that I'm not looked at like I'm mean and looking down at someone. <em>24</em> Wed, 15 Oct 2014 04:17:51 EST QOD: 10/14 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x31050x59450793 Did you ever get a gift that was "just perfect"?

My mom thinks I'll be too thin at my goal weight. I know differently so I ignore her. I had a friend that I used to walk with. She didn't really have the strong desire to lose weight though and eventually stopped walking with me. So whenever we see each other the subject isn't even brought up. Hubby is really supportive thou...

He is 97 years old and still does stretching exercises 6 days a week as much as he can. He has to walk with a walker but at 97 I think it's pretty impressive that he still does any exercising! <BR> <BR> I admire strong women: Thatcher and Hepburn come to mind. I guess th...

Some things I've thought of are scuba diving, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Walk, I want to be comfortable in my own skin and like how I look with what I am wearing, I would like to be a fitness instructor too. When/if I reach my ultimate goal weight I want to continue to make new goals of some sorts so that I continue to improve myself.

I love to do kickboxing, push ups, walking long distances, and I love the self confidence I have now.

I'd take hubby with me of course. Maybe go with another couple or not.

Do you have a favorite author or genre of book? <BR> <BR> I love to read! Most of the books I read are ebooks on the iPad. My favorite author is Stieg Larsson. I've read all of his books and unfortunately he will never come out with another since he died several years ago. I like some Koontz novels. I like Philip Dick's books too. I think I mostly like Sci-Fi books and crime novels. I can't stand novels where I can predict the ending or who committed the crime or if they ar...

What's your weather? <BR> <BR> I love spring through early fall. I like it when the leaves start to change and I like snow but after a month or two I'm ready for spring again. Right now I am definitely not ready for fall or cooler weather. I'm not ready for summer to be over with. I demand a redo of summer! lol Thu, 4 Sep 2014 07:16:34 EST QOD:9/03 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x31050x59026950 <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <em>38</em> <BR> <BR> What is your LEAST favorite exercise that you do anyway? <BR> <BR> Probably tricep push ups on the floor.

Then I exercise right after breakfast no matter what. I figure I'd have to change out of my workout clothes if I don't exercise so I figure I might as well exercise.
