I've come back. I have battled a number of personal issues--went off Sparkpeople but now I'm back and back with a vengeance!

I lost 16.5lbs as of a few days ago and am very committed to reaching my goals. I have exercised at least once each day for the past three weeks and I will continue for as long as it takes.

I realized that while a number of 'bad' things have happened to me, I don't blame those who did them, I blame myself for my poor response to these external issues. I'm stepping up to take responsibility for who I am. what I do and how I feel. Join me on my journey!

Tough 2008. 10 friends and family members died. 2009 was better and I expect 2010 to be even better. This year I'll lose all of the weight, get back into shape and stay that way.

We can't change or control everything that happens, we can't change or control others. The only thing we can control is our attitude and our reaction to what happens in our lives. We all have choices in life. Being unhappy is a choice, but choosing to be happy is also a choice. We can dwell on the things that are wrong in our lives or we can choose to turn a negative into a positive.

We can choose to get angry when our children misbehave or we can choose to be grateful that we have wonderful children.

We know more about what we don't want than what we do want. We spend more time thinking about what's wrong than what's right. This too is a choice.

Choose to he happy, choose to live with gratitude, choose to be the best you that you can be and you will make a difference not only in your own life but also in the lives of others.

    I really like your philosophy! It took me years to learn that and it is so true. We make our own choices. I will choose happy over sad, peace over anger, so on and so forth any time. I spent half my life fighting with one person or another! NOT WORTH IT. I also choose to make my life HAPPY AND FIT! Good Luck and keep that wonderfully positive attitude of yours. It is great to know someone else feels the same way I do about choices.
