My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.

Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.

    I love your page! I think I have visited that castle and I know I have traveled down many paths of starting and stopping. What really bugs me is when I am trying to eat healthy it seems all I can think about is food! All the commercials on tv and radio are about food, open a magazine and it's about food! I so wish I could retreat to the land of calorie free goodies. There is so much more to my life than food, I don't know why it's consuming my thoughts.

    Thanks for your note on my thread about self care. You are very sweet, and I'm so glad that you, and others, are getting something out of it.

    I LOVE your spark page! You go girl!
