But that's my whole point -- I wasn't claiming any precedence for Druidism, just throwing out a name for the holiday which is common in Drudic circles, old and new.

I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!

ZAIVALA,

Please clarify the difference between 'primarily' and 'mostly' as used in your original comment. Methinks 'tis simply a matter of perspective, emoticon

Circleofmoons... I never claimed it was exclusively or even primarily Druidic, just letting out another name for the holiday.

Merry meet! Wishing you all a wonderful Imbolc! May the strengthening light aid us in our journeys to health and weight loss.

Blessed be

Eating alone will not keep a man well; he must alsoo take exercise. For food and exercise, while possessing opposite qualities, yet work together to produce health... and it is necessary, as it appears, to discern the power of various exercises, both natural exercises and artificial, to know which of them tends to increase the flesh and which to lessen it; and not only this, but also to proportion exercise to bulk of food, to the constitution of the patient, to the age of the individual..."

Moss,

Thank you for your well wishes also. A point about the term Imbolc...while it may have been used mostly by Druids at one point, in my experience and observation it is used more widely by the Wiccan community these days.

And a happy Candlemas to you all! ...although the way I was raised, it's Feb 2... Another name, used mostly by Druids, is Oimelg, pronounced immolg...

Hugs,

I love that you can begin to notice the days growing longer, and methinks Lady Brighid has been lighting fires again (specifically under my rear)...there has been a real shift in my attitude and motivation since our Imbolc Circle.

Thank you for the well wishes, LITTLEONEJADE, emoticon

We had our Imbolc circle this past weekend and "Light" is a perfect way to describe it, emoticon

May you all feel the Light shine in and around you
enjoy your day and the light as it grows brighter each day emoticon

Getting discouraged?
Lift something equal to the weight you've lost and carry it around for awhile

Once choice at a time per day
will make your new life style become reality !
