Welcome to my Sparkpage!! I have learned so much about myself since joining Sparkpeople! Some of it was good and some not so good. I am an emotional eater. But by the grace of God and my favorite team the Shooting Stars in the 5% Challenges I am replacing bad habits with healthy habits. I no longer go shopping when I am hungry and I no longer go shopping when I am upset or angry. Happy people make better choices.
The Shooting Stars helped me to get out of my wheelchair and start walking again. They were there and held a virtual walk as I walked my first 5K in many years.
I still have to do chair exercises but I am doing them every day!
I want to lose about 120 pounds. I am working hard to do this. It is an uphill battle as I take about 20 different prescriptions many of which can cause weight gain.
This does not mean I am giving up! I am going to continue to keep fighting! This is my mountain and I will climb it! and I will climb every mountain on my path.
I can look in the mirror and say I am beautiful and I am worth it!

My new favorite quote... "Call Yourself
Look deep in the mirror
And say "I LOVE YOU"
And immediately
An electric current will
Ripple throughout your soul
And burst through your eyes
Like Shooting Stars
Dancing across the sky
In ecstasy.
To tell your soul you love it -
Is like remembering
After being in a coma
For a hundred years.
Your face will beam the light
of a hundred galaxies."

    When the mind’s patterning wants to take you away from love, kindness, compassion and forgiveness, then learn to say no. Jonathan Harrison

    I’m sorry this special greeting is so late
    Landing here on this page for you,
    I hope you can forgive me,
    But the time just literally flew!

    Better “late than never” they say,
    I know it's not the same,
    I'm so sorry that I missed the date
    It certainly wasn't my aim.

    These congratulatory wishes may be
    Just a tad, or a smidgen late.
    Know you're always wished much happiness,
    No matter what the date.

    emoticon on being our bright, shining emoticon in the Starlight on July 2nd. I hope you enjoyed basking in the glow, and I am wishing you much success in achieving your goals in this challenge. emoticon emoticon for all you do for our team!
