Losing weight is a journey of self discovery. The more you are willing to open yourself up to change and self-awareness, the more successful you will be.

    Try to make at least one person happy every day.
    If you cannot do a kind deed,
    speak a kind word, think a kind thought.
    Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness
    that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Life isn't fair emoticon emoticon emoticon

    No matter what life throws your way,
    no matter how unfair it may seem, refuse to play the victim.
    Refuse to be ruled by fear, pessimism, and negativity. Refuse to quit.
    Be a warrior and work through whatever life throws your way
    with courage, love, and positivity.

    Have You Been gone too??? I took all of July off and made a Hard Reboot in MANY areas of life.....I hope to use Spark much differently this time, and hope to see you on it sometime. I took the liberty of adding you under my new UN.....hope that's ok. I learned so much from you during my second Spark membership, and I hope to reconnect here on my third. I need to write a private email to you and the gang...and I will definitely try to do that another day. My hour (lunch time only now) is fast drawing to a close today, though. emoticon emoticon Love, Leigh
