Sparkpeople has been very fun and helpful to me in the past, until a busy season of life made it feel more than I could keep up with. We relocated from Illinois to Louisville, KY about a year and a half ago, and I am feeling the need for the connection and accountability again, so, as the Terminator said, "I'm baaaaack!" My goal continues to be to switch from a mindset of seeking easy and immediate gratification to one of making the kind of choices that will lead to more self confidence, physical and emotional well being, and self control. On a more specific note, this translates to a desire to get to the weight and fitness level I desire and to STAY THERE CONSISTENTLY! I've heard this is possible. Rumors and legends abound. My personal quest is to find my own route to this magical place and set up housekeeping there. "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." - Goethe

    I hear you about Michael Jackson. Such talent. The whole family is strange. Oh well, at least we have his music to remember him by.

    I hear from Cheri that you traveled to see her! How exciting that you two got to meet and hang out together! Did you take your Cav? McGee has a new big brother....Greg's 13 yr. old Husky, Keystone. They get along very well although McGee would love to steal Keystone's food and treats! I guess he takes after his his food! LOL

    Greg and I have done some traveling, hiking, KC Royals games, KC soccer games and just hanging together. We just have so much fun! I do miss my daughter and granddaughter so much! I am going back next week for my granddaughter's 5th birthday.........can't wait. Then back at Christmas. I am back on track with losing some pounds I picked up with all the fun stuff Greg and I do together. I have to get it through my thick skull that I can eat sensibly and still have fun! LOL

    That is so funny what you said about the birds. There have been days when I thought the same. Especially when the Ravens get together. emoticon

    That's why we're all Soul Mates!!!Sudhir,lotta and Sayali used to tease me about keeping both Chhaayaa Bai and vanita at home and sending them their Pay Check home each month---but I truly can't delegate/relegate work--so I end up working the hardest!!However the way I see it is that this really keeps me fit---and boosts my Confidence too!!Besides the fact that there's someone in the background to take on should I need any help is the best mental emoticon Safety Net I need!!!
