emoticon NWOODS9 and emoticon to SparkPeople's DwD Team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi Norma Jean. Welcome to the team. Kudos to you being able to handle the depression with exercise. There is a trivia question on spark about that. I was on lower dosages for almost 2 years but recently had to have them increased again. Oh well, life happens I guess. Glad that you joined the team.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie I live in CT DST

I went from 258 to 126 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

Hi! I'm Norma Jean. Stop taking depression medication 1 1/2 years ago after taking for over 15 years. I found exercise helped me to relieve much of my depression. I don't experience it on a daily basis, but need to work harder to relieve completely.

I go by half the glass full or even 1/4 glass full if necessary!!

On my way to a better life. Fulfilling some goals I've failed in the past and pursuing new challenges to achieve my life's journey to wellness.

Wake up with DETERMINATION - Go to bed with SATISFACTION!!!

Know a Higher Power,
Know Peace,
No Higher Power,
No Peace!

Norma Jean
