I'm a 27 year old acupuncture and oriental medicine student and I currently work part time as a massage therapist. My schedule doesn't leave a lot of time for exercise, so I try to be as active and eat as well as possible given the opportunities that I have.

I've been a member of Sparkpeople before but that account has been lost to the ages so I decided to start anew. I'm a completely different person now anyway: different diet, different lifestyle, different views. I've found that I've become much more humble.

I found during my last journey on SP that the focus on diet and exercise wasn't as important as the focus on the mind and spirit. So my goal this time around is to change myself from the inside out. Positivity, gratitude and compassion are going to be my main focus.

Please, join me! The more friends that I have along this journey, the merrier it will be.

    Yeah, I often feel the same. I do think people just comment to get the point sometimes and never actually read the entire thing. Especially if it's a longer post. But if it's a longer post I know a lot of personal thoughts went into it, which takes a lot to share with strangers. So I always try to read them and give feedback. Who wants to express all that and be ignored? You know?

    I feel like you did when I see someone actually read and responded to my post in a way that's more than generic. emoticon

    I am more than happy to share in your happiness. I love seeing others make big break-throughs. emoticon
