Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect. Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm! P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!
Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Hello! My name is Kathi and I decided on Mother's day that it was time for a change. It is time for me to get control over my weight, and start feeling like me again when I look in the mirror. Multiple health issues over the past couple of years have affected my metabolism and I popped on 50lbs, and that extra weight has to go! The tools SP provides are so encouraging and helpful...I am positive that I will be successful in meeting my goals - lowering my weight, better control of my blood sugar, gaining muscle/strength and less pain.
Two of my friends have also joined me in this quest, and I am hoping my sister and daughter sign up also!
I already feel happier, knowing that I can take control of this part of my life, and the results will improve the quality of my life!
