Learned something new and important. I have lost & gained weight before... ususally with exercise or lack there of. I have always been one of those people who scoffed at the calorie counting idea. Finding Spark People, I thought... I eat fine..I'll track this food thing for a while and it will simply confirm that I have no reason, other than occasional stress, for why I am fat. turns out it is the calories. I was and still am eating decent food. I was simply eating WAY too much of it. I make 'cleaner' choices too...veggies and a little cheese instead of a pile of my beloved brie.
Thirty pounds later I know why I have lost the weight. I know it sounds simple.. and that I must sound like a complete idiot, but I never could understand why I was heavy.
Now I know...and damn... I feel free. I can choose to eat whatever I want...I now understand the consequences. I know how I did it this time. I have abasorbed the knowledge and it is mine to do with what I will.
If I gain..I will know why and I will know what to do.
I am no longer helpless in the ocean of food I used for comfort.

Thank you....

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today (Feb. 7), you have a funny way of looking at things, but though this unusual streak often leads you in new and different directions, you are also able to mix and mingle with those you consider quite normal -- so, in this way, you are able to have the best of both worlds. Your creative streak enables you to come up with all manner of good -- and sometimes wild -- ideas, and your ability to work and play well with others enables you to turn those ideas into hard-and-fast realities. Still, you are never one to abandon that quirky side of yourself that others know and love.

    You have many interests, but for some reason you are often driven to pursue that which presents the greatest number of complications and difficulties -- and offers the least chance of success. And yet you have a knack for wringing every possible benefit out of such an endeavor.

    Today’s Aquarius Horoscope: Your motives must be true at all times, and when it is necessary to make things clear, you will want to do so. Avoid misunderstanding.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    I can't believe it rained all day! So glad I got lots of yard work done yesterday... Spent today painting front and back doors, inside and out. I've been trying to make isometric exercise a habit, so far so good.

    Hope all is well with you.
