I'd heard it all the time, 'Live in the moment.'
But if I did that, I'd weigh more than a dump truck.
Losing weight wasn't about the moment at all; it was about having faith in the future.
It was about knowing there would be another meal in a few hours.

    Wow, you've lived in some beautiful places! Lucky girl.

    I can hardly swim a length without sounding like a Hoover myself, but I think that's just cause of my out of shapeness and me being uncoordinated and inefficient, LOL. We do have a competitive swimmer who has asthma and was affected by indoor pools, how unlucky! Something to do with if the pool has enough air filtration and back flow...i have no idea...he got REAL technical during that discussion.

    You know, the cold is serious business for my child as well. It seems he is allergic to snow and cold air, no joke. He ALWAYS gets sick if he is outside in it more than an hour. Maybe that's part of it too.

    I hope as the weight melts off of you (and it will) that it eases up. Good vibes and healthy thoughts all for you! :D

    Thanks for the blog love! You have asthma? Mine is illness-induced but I'm always ready for some new trigger.

    Actually swimming competitively was recommended to us for Boo. He is the serious asthma sufferer. If it weren't for swimming, I know he'd have his inhaler as a necklace, now he powers through his yearly tests, even beats me! I highly recommend it even if only to crosstrain to save your knees and toes. :)
    Of course, I suck at it, but I still try. I shame my child, I know. :P He tells me to do backstroke cuz I look like less of a dork. All in good fun. :D

    Hello! I see your name pop up in my friend feed a lot from Buggirl. Thought I'd pop on over here and introduce myself.

    My name is Tina, I am a married mother with one very active child. I have one dog named Max or GET! depending on the day. I've been on Spark since 09 but have fallen off the wagon too so it's a wash.

    Would love to be friends!

    Too funny! One of my rewards for my goal (not for about another 20-30 pounds) is to get a Dr. Who t-shirt from Cafe Press. Not sure if I want: "The angels have the phone box," or what. lol They also have a completely cool TARDIS cell phone case for the iPhone; however, I think I'm getting rid of my iPhone when it comes time to renew contract. If I don't...I'm so getting that case. Haven't found it for any other phone models. :o(

    Have a great day!
