Started reading Eat to Live last night. Very interesting, a real page turner.

Be brave enough to keep fear of the unknown from letting you embrace the possibilities.

There is no shame in starting over. When you are down, getting up shows you have strength and fortitude, staying down simply shows you've given up. Always Get UP!

Midnight Assassin: A Murder in America's Heartland by Patricia L. Bryan and Thomas Wolf.
True story about an unsolved murder; in December of 1900, an Iowa farmer was attacked and killed as he slept; his wife was the prime suspect.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

Answers To Distraction

Nothing Is Impossible with God.
Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.
