Hello . I am Gini. Welcome to my page.

I have been on Spark for a long time. I have changed my profile twice hoping to give myself a fresh outlook and have discovered that the most important thing I can do, for myself, is believe in me.
I have some physical issues and have a long way to go to get myself to the healthy place I want to be.
It is about my weight as it increases the issues of ability but more than that it is about feeling good about myself every day that I can. I used to be a type A personality. It ALL had to be perfect or it wasn't worth anything. I have been able to change that mindset so that I give myself credit whenever and wherever I can.
SOmeone recently asked what my word is for my journey and I think my word is calm. Not running off wildly trying new things all the time and Not jumping from 1 challenge to another. Challenges cause me a lot of stress, so I quit doing that. I now set mini goals for me and celebrate my little victories.
I hope I can be your friend and I hope I can help anyone who asks for my help.

    Hey Gini, stopping by to check in with you. I'm in Florida with my youngest brother. Our other brother is in ICU from a major heart attack he had on 9/21. Life is in limbo now. Hoping he will be able to go home to Tennessee and rehab there. Hugs
