Hi all! I thought I'd take tx.patricia up and check this team out. I'm really active on some other teams so I'm not sure how much I will participate but.... loving my Spark friends as I do I'll be swinging in to see what everyone is up to! Hugs
Come check out the Artists Team and Photographers Snapping away the pounds! teams.sparkpeople.com/photobugs
Name: Fauve ( I am not ready to disclose my real name, sorry) Location: East Florida Joined Spark: Twice, the last time during 2009. Weight Loss goal: 50 pounds less! -- in the long run. In the medium run goal: 20 pounds less. Random 2 about me: 1) I love to play with words, no matter in which language I am speaking or writing, no matter how well I know that language, I just feel the need to play with words. 2) I have no sense of physical orientation ( is this a true term? in English): North? South? East? West? What is that? I easily get lost if I am not familiar with an area, perhaps because I am always in my mind -- and do not pay too much attention to the external. Thank God for navigators!
More sharing: I am an introvert, fond of studying. In my dreams, however, I ride wild horses.
Hugs to you all!

2 Random, Fun Facts about You: I have an almost idiot savant memory of things I watch on tv. Last night I walked through the living room to carry folded laundry into my bedroom and as I walked back out I told my boyfriend I recall that episode of forensic files, the mine guard was found on a mountaintop, his coworker with the camaro killed him. I had seen it almost a year ago, caught maybe 3 seconds of it walking by and had instant recall. Now if I could remember important facts the same way I'd clean up on Jeopardy! I took a class for a gun permit last week, not sure if I'd ever carry one but the first time my hunny and I went target shooting I got almost all bullseyes while not even wearing my glasses. Turns out I'm a natural at something I never thought I'd try.
Anything else you want to share: I've been in the dumps for two months on my Spark program, ever since I had the flu. I'm recovered physically but am struggling to get back into routines.
I posted a 40 things about me blog a while back just chocked with random facts. The two above didn't make that list.

To me...life is an adventure if we don't try a few new pathways off the beaten path for exciting adventure..what's the point of the trip?
