Hey there! I've been Sparking since 2010. I left once, having regained some weight and moved into bigger clothes. I came back and started a new account after sneaking out the back door. I was ashamed of my half baked results. Once again, I was failing a great program and walking away feeling ashamed of my body. Well, blast it all! I came back and I am here to stay. Screw the shaming self talk that ever discourages one of us from loving ourselves or taking the best care of ourselves for a single moment! Screw that shame which also keeps us from truly loving the people around us, and letting them love us! My body, and my life, have changed so much in the past year. They keep changing. More than ever before, change is the constant. Updated 2017/9/10

Masticating with as much pleasure as possible, but not more often than is healthy.

Personal Information:
Looking to network with DFW peeps. Actually seeking connections to ASL classes... My hearing has decreased a lot this year, in 2016. Give a holler!


Other Information:
Latest Netflix projects...
"The Railway Man" is an incredible, painful, intense, uplifting movie about a British soldier. Wow.

Orange is the New Black... I'm all caught up now, S4:E:1 comes in June.
Still no Season 2 for Gotham...
Futurama continues to be delightful!

    Hi, have you been able to find ASL classes in the DFW area? I'm hoping to get the Deaf Spark Team a bit more active?
