I chose the page name of Lothlorien because I am a Tolkein/Lord of the Rings fan and Lothlorien was the forest home of the elves where the hobbits stopped to rest and recuperate in the midst of their journey. I could use some rest and restoration. Lothlorien's trees had golden yellow leaves, my favorite color.

My username Fimbrethil is the name of the entwife of Treebeard in The Lord of the Rings. Ents are treelike people and Fimbrethil was one of the oldest, and her face and body were withered and browned from work in the sun, but Treebeard still thought she was beautiful. Ents can't bend very well in the middle and I can't either since I've gained so much weight. With this program I intend to go from being a stocky oak tree to being a lithe willow that bends but does not break. Then I will dance in the wind and praise the God who made me!

I want to reclaim the former slim and fit me. I want to handle stress without overeating. I want to break my aspertame addiction.

I'm a Christian. I want to honor God by taking care of my body. I want to be fit and healthy enough to keep moving and doing good things.

Thoughts for the Day:
-Who tastes dog food when it has a 'new & improved' flavour?
-Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
-If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhoea... does that mean that one in five enjoys it?
-If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?
-If the cops arrest a mute, do they tell him he has the right to remain silent?

    Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't are worth the effort!

    "Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
    The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
    Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
    No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
