Since being at Sparkpeople I have lost 53 lbs. I have 31 lbs to go to get to goal. It has been a long process of trying this and trying that.to final find what works for. me. I am a work in process...It is a mental challenge as well as physical one....For me it took time to learn to love and accept myself..that God loves me and accepts me
even with all my short comings...I am a caregiver to my husband who has dementia..he has entered Hospice..the Drs have given him less than a year to live...Every day is a challenge and thankfully I do not have time to stop and ponder all that I am going through...There is a saying.."If God is all you have then God is all you need." That is certainly proving true for me....I am learning to lean on him...I am blessed to have a good friend who is always there when I need to talk,about anything, who accepts me unconditionally. I take one day at time and learning to face my fears

Other Information:


I have learned that..

You can't go back and change an experience.
You can't make it un-happen.

But you can change how you feel in this moment... about that experience.

You can change how you perceive that experience.

You can change what meaning you give that experience and what suffering or joy you create long after the experience has passed.

    (¸☆´I Meant to Do My Work Today

    I meant to do my work today—
    But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
    And a butterfly flitted across the field,
    And all the leaves were calling me.

    And the wind went sighing over the land,
    Tossing the grasses to and fro,
    And a rainbow held out its shining hand—
    So what could I do but laugh and go?
    by
    Richard Le Gallienne
