"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." Robert Collier

As I work my way though this "weight loss journey"... saying that seems so trite, but it is a journey.. a different path taken..... ANYWAY.... as I work my way through this journey... I understand that so much...... SO much of this journey is about my mind. It's not how my body metabolizes what I eat...... It's not about how I convert fat to energy.... it's about my mind and how I have the ability to choose the path I'm going to take. I'm going to be internally motivated and have the strength and resolve to do what I have wanted to do for years. Am I going to be able to maintain a healthy body weight when I'm done? Is this a lifestyle choice where I've taken a different road all-together and will never stray back to my original path? I say YES! I say that I have what it takes to change my life forever! GO ME!!!

    Depends on what you want it for. I have the iPhone4 (which is incredible) and a PC - together they are perfect...

    My Wisest Self wants three names, I guess that's to offset the Three Witches. One of those will be as you suggest: Athena! An apt and awesome inspiration, Bella -- thanks so much! Other two-thirds of her name tba ... Have you ever seen the original movie of "National Velvet"? Velvet Brown's mother is the wisest movie mum I have ever seen. Will look up her name as an option!

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Love reading your new blogs for 2011 -- have missed you (guess I already whined about that a while ago, so you can picture how cool it is to see new bits recently)!
