Welcome to my Spark page.

This past year has been a year of learning, changing, and revelations. I have seen so many things in me that need to change and in my life. I have seen that I need to stop letting my circumstances control me and take my life back, to live a moment by moment pro active life not reactive. Sparkpeople, and my weight loss and journey to the best health I can have is part of it all. I know I can do it, and I know you can too!!!

"The Happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking."

Marcus Aurelius

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.

Believe you can and you’re halfway there!!

    Thanks my dear friend for the beautiful goodie and more so for the sentiments that came with it!! I am doing my best but it IS a struggle. I think about my beautiful hubby pretty much all day...every day! I miss him SO much. Now that our snowbird customers are returning so many of them ask about Don and I must repeat the sad story over and over. It kind of gets to me after awhile but I feel that these faithful customers deserve the truth about the owner they really respected and cared about.

    Tomorrow I go to a dine in dinner at the old group's house. It is hosted by my former best friend and I hope it isn't akward after the 2 year gap we had after I resigned from the group about 2 years ago. I was heartened that one of my dear friends reached out to this lady and her husband and we have reconciled since Don's passing.

    It will never be the same freindship it was for so many years but at least we can be civil to each other and who knows we might become closer someday.

    I received all of my products from Dr. Berg today so I'm anxious to get started. I got a few of his books and his Keto Teas and some vitamins that I hope will give me a little support for my hair thinning and falling out, Also the meal replacement and something to help my adrenals and Cortisol...also some Wheat Grass Powder...should be good for me! emoticon
