I am a 50 year old mother of 2 wonderful young adults. I am recently divorced and I need to get back on track for me and start living this life for me! I am tired of being overweight and want to be able to be healthier for my family and myself. I want to teach my children healthy habits so that they do not end up fat like me.

Who Do You Say You Are?
I'm changing my life and this time it is for good!
Someone will always be prettier.
Some will always be smarter.
Some of their houses will be bigger.
Some will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.
So let it go,
and love you and your circumstances.
Think about it! ~~~My friend, Amina

...I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN of depression, weariness and dreariness that sets in sometimes. I just can't stand it. I pray that God can give me a mind to accept the changes going on in my body and the will power not to sabotage my own efforts.
....I need an umbrella. ~~~~Amina

Reminescent of the whole "Sparkpeople" idea...I've gotten to thinking of my life and the lives of my friends as flames. Flickers of light just trying to stay aglow. Light is something that even though it gives so much - is very fragile and I honestly think that there are some people that walk around with buckets of water or garden hoses rather..just to douse the flame of someone they think is burning too bright. I've had my flame doused a couple of times. Yea..a few times. And I couldn't understand how after burning so brightly that just a few drops of water could take away the light that I had. Sure it is explained in science classes - but as it relates to life? Not so much.

But as I've realized - as quickly as your flame can be blown out, it can be relit. Just a kind word, a message, a hug, a spark goodie (lol) can reignite the flame you once had.

So never fear. Get yourself a box of matches. And even when there is no one to light your spark for you - you can do it yourself! ~~~~Amina ( She dedicated this one to me)
