I got a new pre-lit white tree this year. I did it all in silver ornaments only...the one thing I could not find was a tree topper that I liked so I have a silver butterfly at the top this year.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I grew up with a gold-toned angel made mostly of aluminum netting, with what today we would call fiber-optic wings, but she is not lit. We have a special string of lights we put up around her, with gold and pink flashers aimed right at her face. We had been doing our tree this way for as long as I can remember, from the time I was two or three until my son was old enough to express a preference - I think he was about six, so I would have been around 34. He desperately wanted a star on the tree that year and I told him if he could find a nice one in the stores, we would use it. He finally found one I could put up with (they were all terribly gaudy that year! LOL!) so we put it up. It was sad for me not to have my angel. Since then every year we were all home we alternated, my angel one year, his star the next. I even started to write the dates on the angel's box, so we would know whose turn it was! I found it a wonderful lesson in compromise for a small boy!

Two white doves... with wings outstretched and beak to beak kissing. We were married on December 28th 30 years ago in our home and the main floral decoration was a Christmas tree covered with white baby's breath and doves. Because of the Rose Parade in Pasadena there were no local flowers available but the tree was beautiful and every Christmas it's such a wonderful reminder of a beautiful day emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

I don't have anything on top of my tree. I have never really had a tree since I got married since my husband was Jewish. Now that I am separated, I don't have the Christmas spirit to get a big tree so I have a little one that's about 10 inches tall with 3 ornaments on it.
