Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.

In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.

Who knew I would be so blessed?!

    "And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.

    And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. " ~ Kitty O'Meara

    Wouldn't it be wonderful
    If every day we're living
    We stopped to count our blessings
    Like we do on Thanksgiving?
    If every day we took the time
    For gratefully expressing
    Our thankfulness for every joy
    And every little blessing...
    Wouldn't it be wonderful
    If we would just remember
    Gratitude's a year-round thing
    Not only for November!
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Wishing you many blessings to count and many joys to remember
    this Thanksgiving Day and all the days that follow! Your support and
    encouragement have been a real blessing in my journey!

    Even the most ordinary day can be extraordinary! You don't need a big moment to make today amazing; it came that way, with beauty to behold and a jumble of joys and blessings to discover. The secret: just opening your heart and mind to the wow of now!!

    emoticon Been thinking about you a lot lately and hoping all is well, that you are healthy and happy!
