Since this is a new year, I thought it would be a good time to update my page! Welcome! I love this page! It's a place that gives me the opportunity to meet Sparkers who, like me, are changing their lives one day at a time. A place for me to receive the motivation and encouragement I need to keep going on my journey. A place that encourages me to motivate others to reach their goals. I hope this page is as inspirational to you as it is to me! Please come back often to visit!

A little info about me....my name is Laura. I am 62 years young, a wife, mother and grandmother. My hobbies are gardening, jewelry making and crocheting. I love nature and enjoy spending as much time as possible outdoors. I love animals and am "mom" to a 5 yr old Tibetan Spaniel and a 6 year old Bengal/Tabby cat.

The following poem about success is a favorite of mine so I thought I would share it.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again


Member Since: 7/9/2011

My Goals:
1) 4-8 glasses of water.
2) 3 healthy meals
3) Stay within my daily WW points.
4) Take all prescribed meds/supplements.
5) Track all foods
6) Track fitness
7) Walk at least 10,000 steps each day.
8) Use spark tools to my
advantage and
connect with teams
and members.



My Program:
Keep a daily diary. Be honest and accountable for each day's events. Track everything I eat and watch my portion sizes. Concentrate on eating more veggies and fruits and drink more water. Set small, realistic goals then work to achieve and build on them. Always remember that "My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today."



Personal Information:
In Oct 2011 my husband retired after putting in 30 years as a firefighter/EMT. We decided we needed a change so we sold our house on the Massachusetts seacoast and bought one in a small rural town in the Berkshires. We love it here. Life moves slower and we are surrounded by beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife.


Other Information:
"Our lives improve only when we take chances... and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves." ~ Walter Anderson

    From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere. Dr. Seuss

    Step with care and great tact, and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act. Dr. Seuss

    Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. Dr. Seuss

    Silly Monday Enjoy !

    Just a note to say "Hello". Thank you for all your supportive comments on my page. I hope you will have a Sparktacular Sunday.

    "Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. Therapists and friends can help you along the way, but the healing--the genuine healing, the actual real-deal, down-on-your-knees-in-the-mud change--is entirely and absolutely up to you."-Cheryl Strayed, Brave Enough

    We have to hurt in order to know.
    Fall in order to grow,
    lose in order to gain,
    because most of life's lesson are taught through pain.

    Pain makes you stronger, tears make you braver.
    Heartbreak makes you wiser. So thank the past for a better future.

    The future belongs to the few of us who are willing to get our hands dirty.
