Fall seven times. Stand up eight. -Japanese proverb
"I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are, because a could-be is a maybe that is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a could-have-been, because a could-have been has never been, but a has was once an are." Milton Berle
Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got. - Janis Joplin

I have been avoiding getting Spark, because I wasn't really sure if I had the time to look through everything or keep up. But now that my health has changed and I must take better care of myself, today I feel more determined. Not sure how I fit in or how to fit into smaller sizes, but I am going to give it a try. I tried on my own this year and managed to lose some weight but I am slowly putting it back on again. Not good. Especially that I have gallstones. I also realize it is selfish not to show support. Even if I don't want to share my victories or defeats, I need to learn from others and encourage people to keep going. I didn't want to wait till the new year to share, encourage or cry about my issues and maybe some of yours. I am here now. A cheerleader if I can be. Thanks for listening to me. I am in my 40's and have been married for 4 years. My daughter just gave birth to her second baby and I am full of joy as a grandma. Sincerely, T.
