We all want success at what we do. What is success when you come to think about it. Is it what other say about us or expect from us. It is what brings happiness or is it what we make it. I've been on this diet at first and now what I call my journey. I have had ups and downs. Not where I want to be and will probably have more ups and downs. The suceess I have is knowing who I am. Having wonderful friends here and that I have known for years. Having my mom at 91 (even though she is not doing well) still with us. Having a great nephew, his wife and now great nephew. Having some to think I'm special and a job that is stressful and crazy, but a job. Believing in me that I can do this and will succeed.

I'm not sure what success really is - but I know what it is not. It is not trying to be what someone else thinks I should be, or act, or have. It is what I think.

This may take me awhile, but I'm doing great - I've succeeded this far and will continue to succeed. To all my spark friends I say" Let's keep on this jorney together and know we will succeed. Believe it will happen.

    Jeanine, I am so proud of you. You are a success. Success is sharing your story with others so they know that they are not alone when they have their ups and downs. I commend you for writing this blog after being silent for so many months.

    You have lost 25 pounds on this journey you've undertaken. Twenty-five pounds counts as a big success in everyone's book. Way to go.

    I so happy you for shared your success with us so that we could be happy with and for you. This blog was spot on. Thanks.

    What a beautiful definition of success! I am so glad you are succeeding on your journey, because that is what it is. And we CAN make life what we want it to be, with determination and plain old hard work.

    Best of luck to you!

    can you hear the applause?my hands are so red from clapping that with a bit of luck they will be too sore for me to pick up some food with them to put in my mouth.i agree totally with what you said.success in my opinion has nothing to do with money ,fame,or even is nice to have them don´t get me wrong but it is not the be all and end all.success is how we feel in our hearts if we are at ease with who we are as we are.and also if we feel in place with all thoes around us and what we have or don´t have.once again i applaud you and take my hat off to you or in my case my hijab.good to hear you are doing so well.keep up the good work
