Me playing my fiddle. My hair is cut short now. I'm only an OK fiddler, but I have fun. :-)

Hi. :-)

I'm 58. I weigh 188.5lbs. I'm 5'1". I'm a homemaker who is trying to get a novel written. My favorite things to do (since I was in late elementary school) are all sit down things but I didn't start getting fat until my early 20s. I don't have a favorite sport except fencing and it's hard to find anywhere to fence. I don't have a favorite exercise although I do enjoy Wii Fit Plus bicycling. I tolerate doing Leslie Sansone's DVDs.

I have battled depression and negativity all my life and that just makes doing this all the more difficult. I joined a little over a year ago and left because I wasn't getting anywhere. This time I can't seem to even get started. I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT & GET IN BETTER SHAPE!! But every time I get on here I get stressed out and depressed.

Keep me in thought and prayer if you are willing to.

My Goals:
I'm so afraid of setting goals. More often than not they end up being symbols of my failure as opposed to being markers of success.

I want to finish my mystery novel and try to get it published.

I want to lose weight and be in better shape, but I don't like thinking of it as "living a healthy lifestyle" for some reason. It sounds cheesy to me.

My Program:
I don't know what I'm doing as my "program" other than trying to hang around here, do the SparkCoach stuff and hope something starts to get through to me.

Personal Information:
I'm in Central Illinois.

Most of the things I enjoy most in life are things you do sitting down. I didn't choose them for that reason at all - it just worked out that those are the things I like.

Reading, writing, arts & crafts, watching some TV or movies.

Other Information:
My favorite book (since 1966) is "Lord of the Rings". I have a tattoo of J.R.R.Tolkien's monogram on my left ankle.

    Hi Fiddlemom! I very rarely comment on Sparkpages but saw your SparkCoach comment and wanted to stop by and say Hi! It seems we share some struggles...nice to know I'm not the only ADD person on SparkCoach emoticon I wish we had our own "Condition Center", that would be so much more helpful.

    "Dreaming is wonderful, goal setting is crucial, but action is supreme.
    To make something great happen you must get busy and make it happen.
    Take that action step today that will put you on your path to achievement."

    "Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
    Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
    No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
    How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."

    Wishing you a great day of progress, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect....just do your best, and start over as many times as you need to. As long as you never quit, you will make progress!
