Am with relatives in leafy beautiful Surrey UK awaiting my husband's return to full health and one or two other stumbling blocks to our future. I have been looking into Sparkpeople.com since my return after a break of 3 years. So helpful to read people's blogs and today I actually did an 11 minute dash of chair exercises, have to start walking soon. I blame sitting around with my husband who I notice is returning to his former self. I walk very fast now and my husband has to tell me to slow down when we go out. There is so much to do but I limit myself as I'm conscious of not being in my own home. But I know that's only an excuse. The future is rosy because we are both very determined people and whenever I dedicate my day to God I notice everything goes right.



If - By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too
If you can wait & not be tired by waiting
Or being lied about
Don't deal in lies
Or being hated, don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise

If you can dream and not make dreams your master
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop to build them up with worn out tools

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch & toss
And lose & start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss
If you can force your heart and nerve & sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the will which says to them "Hold on"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
or walk with kings nor lose the common touch
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you
If all men count with you, but none too much
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With 60 seconds worth of distance run
Yours is the earth & everything that's in it
And which is all, you'll be a man my son

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
