Welcome to my SparkPage~~Glad you stopped by!

"Every decision I make has it's price."

"I get my advice from those who have the results I am looking for." -Judy (Me)

More of the same will not bring different results! (Me)

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night. -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Courage is not the absence of fear but the mastery of it."

"The impossible is often the untried." - Jim Goodwin

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That's the day we truly grow up. - John Maxwell

"Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration." - Evan Esar

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. ~ Henry Ford (1863-1947)

"You never know just how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have"
"Be great in act as you have been in thought"
Wm. Shakespeare
"....This above all, to thine own self be true"
Wm Shakespheare


A- Admitting: Admitting my wrongs to others is only ONE part of fixing a problem. It requires me to act on changing my behavior going forward.

B- Boundaries: Boundaries do not shut people out, but rather protect what gets in. Setting boundaries allows me to state my preferences without feeling guilty.

C- Choices: I always have choices. Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part. I can say yes, no, or let me think about it.

D- Do: When I do for others what they can and should do for themselves, I take away their power to change.

E- Expectations: Putting expectations on others will empty today of it's strength. I cannot live my life putting expectations on others to bring me happiness.

F- Freedom: I realize that making things right with others brings freedom from emotional and mental bondage.

G- Gift: Life is a gift. I realize that what I am is God's gift to me. What I become is my gift to God.

H- Humility: I realize that recovery depends on humility before God.

I- Impossible: I know that without faith, it is impossible to please God. 'I' cannot do the impossible.

J- Just: Just one day at a time I can rely on God for all my needs, which will bring me contentment.

K- Keep: Keep my eyes on my own plate. If I feel I have too much to handle, I am probably trying to handle someone else's stuff.

L- Love: I cannot love someone more than they love themselves. I should also remember to love myself "as" (much as) I love others.

M- Myself: My responsibility is to improve myself physically, emotionally, and spiritually with God's help.

N- Never: I am never alone. I have God and others.

O- Owe: Changing my wrong thinking and actions is a debt that I owe to myself, to God, and others.

P- Prepare: Living daily without involving myself in other people's drama, better prepares me for any impending crisis that might be just around the corner.

Q- Quiet: Even when my life is quiet, I will not necessarily be living with serenity. I need to continue to work on myself.

R- Recovery: I must do 'whatever' it takes to get and stay in recovery. I cannot allow the bad behaviors of others to keep me in emotional bondage.

S- Serenity: Serenity is asking God to help me accept things beyond my control.

T- Thinking: It is important to invite others into my thinking. It was my best thinking that got me to where I am today.

U- Unconditional: My unconditional love for another does not negate the importance of detaching from unhealthy situations.

V- Value: I know that if I add value to another person, I will lessen my resentment. Resentments are shackles. Resentment sabotages my happiness.

W- Will: I know that in order to have God's will for myself, I cannot have a will of my own.

X- 'X'amine: Self-examination gives me greater insight to why I am having problems.

Y- Yesterday: I cannot move forward today if I am looking back at yesterday. I am much healthier when I turn yesterday's fears into tomorrow's faith.

Z- Zeal: A life worth living, will involve zeal for spiritual principles.

My Goals:
I want to loose 40 lbs. (UPDATE: I have lost 25 of this weight so far.)

I have done it before with a combination of physical fitness and good nutrition following the Body For Life program. I will do it again.
