About me... I've been an active SP member who celebrated 11 years of being a member on July 31st, 2017!! I have developed some great friendships and learned so much!

I turned 50 years YOUNG on September 3, 2016 and my mantra is Fit@50&Beyond!

My greatest barrier to reaching my health goals has been alcohol. I lead the group Cutting Down the Booze (Calories) here with SP and also lead a group on Facebook (Lose 'da Booze 100 Day Challenge). Since September 2016 - I have completed THREE 100 Day AF (alcohol free) challenges and they were the catalyst to so many positive benefits in my life - including weight loss and increased self-esteem and self-confidence.

For my 51st birthday I'm decided to do a FULL year experiment of consciously working to go longer than 100 days of Lose 'da Booze. I surpassed my 100 day streak and managed 173 AF days in a row and will blog about the benefits of simply cutting down on alcohol from my life for the one year cycle... as forever seems daunting... I can't wait to see what this New Year will bring! If you wish to follow my journey relative to this, visit

AFFIRMATION FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! (taken from my The Secret Dec 31, 2008 calendar page):
"In the new picture of coming years, I see my life growing and expanding in everything: in health, youth and unlimited energy at all times and in all circumstances. I see myself in complete freedom. I see unlimited growth in my personal capacity, mental power, and intellectual brilliancy. I see constant improvement in all elements of my personality and my body. I see daily growth in my wisdom, understanding, insight, and realization. I see myself in peace, harmony, love, and joy, and I see my characther expanding to be stronger and more beautiful. I see the never-ending betterment of friends, associations, and environments. I see myself in everlasting joy and infinite bliss."

    . . . life is an inside-out game. Our relationship w/ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive & love ourselves is reflected back to all of us in all our outer experiences/relationships. Valerie Sheppard
