As my happiness increased when I married, so did my weight and waist. What happened to the athlete, the yogini, the woman who loved to wear dresses...and who is this woman married to my husband wearing his jeans and x-large shirts?

I am ready to get my life and waist back!

My favorite motivational quotes:

People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing-that's why we recommend it daily.
Zig Ziglar

Life is like a dogsled team. If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes.
(source unknown)

The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground
(source unknown)

It is better to be patient, than it is to become one .

We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.

The reason so many people never get anywhere in life is because when opportunity knocks, they are out in the backyard looking for four-leaf clovers.
Walter Percy Chrysler

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas Alva Edison

Doctors and scientists said that breaking the four-minute mile was impossible, that one would die in the attempt. Thus, when I got up from the track after collapsing at the finish line, I figured I was dead.
Roger Bannister (After becoming the first person to break the four-minute mile, 1952)

Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -- a desire, a dream, a vision.
Muhammad Ali

My thoughts before a big race are usually pretty simple. I tell myself: Get out of the blocks, run your race, stay relaxed. If you run your race, you'll win... channel your energy. Focus.
Carl Lewis

If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.
Bob Hope

    Don't feel bad, most of us take a SparkBreak at some point and I have taken several. You can see what I've been up to by visiting my SparkPage. emoticon Menopause is not much fun for awhile but it's better on the other side! I'm 63 now and feel great!

    Are you still painting?? Your paintings are beautiful!

    Cindy, I was so happy to find an email in my inbox notifying me that I had a comment in my mailbox.

    How are you doing? Thanks so much for contacting me. I feel so guilty for being away so long! But everything is okay except for now officially being in the meno pause and really struggling with my weight emoticon Your comment inspired me to come back.

    Thanks so much emoticon !

    I'm glad to see you back on SP, Tessa! LOVE the puppy pictures!! We have been adopted by an itty bitty bobtail kitty in the last couple of weeks. Funny looking and wants our food but no snuggles, thank you. She hides behind *our* huge feral tom. We named him Passin' Through--two years ago!! emoticon
