    Hello! Thanks for your comment on my page - I really appreciate the recognition of how hard it was to quit smoking! Now if I could just translate the willpower it took to do that into eating habits willpower.

    I hope your job hunt is going well; keep up the positive attitude and you will accomplish your goals!

    Happy Birthday on Thursday! (By the way, 42 is soooooo NOT old!)

    Hey there!!! Thanks for the comment on my spark page!

    I'm glad to be one of your Spark motivators! Our team is small, but very good at posting! Believe me, if I left SparkPeople, I'd fall off the wagon within the week, so guess I'll be here for a good long while. Thanks to you too!

    Hope you don't mind, me asking, but I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".

    The link is located on my sparkpage, (you can link it from here..it's up there^^ by my pic) and the main discussion room is marked with "sticky topic".
    There are many Topics...( there is something for everyone to take comfort in).. There are many little challenges posted , on " Tickle*me*Pink " 's sparkpage, if you are up to them..(she is my all-giving wife, & the team leader, & her page link is on my page also.)

    I was hoping that you will come click the link, join the group, & say hello... As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

    (my wish is that everyone on sparkpeople has a place to meet.(.wether they attend to other groups,that's always okay)..but I feel it is important that there is a place for that like "OO")
    PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you.
    .. You're in the right place & no matter where we're from, what religion we are, etc etc etc.. I just can't say enough about the people (family) in OO. (You will feel very welcomed)
    Jack
