"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."
~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. It's not a declaration. It's a DARE. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. " ..-Adidas ..

"Some bridges deserved to be burned especially if the monsters on the other side are dangerous enough."

Welcome to my SparkPage. Right here, right now, I'm swearing off saying " I don't have time to...." I'm going to replace it with "I don't want to take the time to.....".

"I don't have time to" has become my mantra and my excuse for not exercising and planning my diet. I have time for everything else - television, surfing the web, sitting on my butt, etc. If I spend less time doing those things I will have more time to exercise and plan my meals.

I've had a weight problem since I had my youngest son 23 years ago but managed to keep it under control up until about 12 years ago. I went through a life changing event and forgot how to take care of the most important person in my life....ME! It's time to start taking better care of ME and get my behind back into shape! I love who I have become, I just want to change the outside appearance a little. I've challenged myself to get this weight off for good and to keep it off. No excuses! I was a runner 20 years ago and want to run again, but I have to walk before I can run.

Feel free to add me as a Friend. I like meeting new people and love to give encouragement and support.


Don't Quit!

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.

So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.

To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
if you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.

And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!


“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”


"We create the situations & then we give our power away by blaming the other person for our frustration. No person, no place & no thing has any power over us for "WE" are the only thinkers in our mind."
~Louise Hay "You Can Heal Your Life"


"Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you cannot see."


Taurus: April 21 – May 21
The physical, sensual side of life is very important to the Taurus, and meals are one way to express that sensuality. Good food and good wine are as essential as air to you, but don’t let yourself get stuck in the high-fat trap. Wean yourself off full-fat milk and cheeses to save hundreds of calories without sacrificing flavor. Nurture your earthy side by planting your own vegetable garden and enjoying fresh, homemade soups and salads, with ingredients grown with your own hands. While some people might find you bull-headed, your reputation for being stubborn can be a good thing—you won’t give up on your weight loss goals, even if they’re taking longer than you expected.

    Hope you are having a great week!

    Joke of the day:

    There were four engineers traveling in a car; a mechanical engineer, a chemical engineer, an electrical engineer and a computer engineer. The car breaks down.

    “Sounds to me as if the pistons have seized. We’ll have to strip down the engine before we can get the car working again”, says the mechanical engineer.

    “Well”, says the chemical engineer, “it sounded to me as if the fuel might be contaminated. I think we should clear out the fuel system.”
    “I thought it might be a grounding problem”, says the electrical engineer, “or maybe a faulty plug lead.”

    They all turn to the computer engineer who has said nothing and say: “Well, what do you think?” “Ummm perhaps if we all get out of the car and get back in again?”

    Your joke of the day:

    A couple in their early 60's was celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant. Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, "For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish."

    The wife answered, "Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband." The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.

    The husband thought for a moment: "Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than I." The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish. So the fairy waved her magic wand and poof !! the husband became 93 years old.

    The moral of this story: Men who are ungrateful jerks should remember fairies are female..... emoticon

    Hope you are having a good one.
