Hi! My name is Lynn. I live with my spouse and three Chihuahuas in Phoenix AZ.

Like many here, I joined SparkPeople.com to lose weight/diet (yuch - I hate that four letter word!). Now I use "manage my health".

After listening and reading a lot on this website, I decided I didn't need a diet. I learned I needed to develop a healthy lifestyle. I just didn't know what I was getting myself out of and into :-)

I just rewrote my goals, modifying my program to be reasonable and achievable. The hardest part is realizing I am talking changing daily, little by little so that at some point, the changes aren't changes anymore - it is simply the way I live.

In the process, I get to meet a lot of fantastic people (yes, I am talking about you!), get healthy, and have fun.

Who knew I would be so blessed?!

    You are not your age,
    nor the size of clothes you wear,
    You are not a weight,
    or the color of your hair.
    You are not your name,
    or the dimples in your cheeks.
    You are all the books you read,
    and all the words you speak.
    You are your croaky morning voice,
    and the smiles you try to hide.
    You’re the sweetness in your laughter,
    and every tear you’ve cried.
    You’re the songs you sing so loudly,
    when you know you’re all alone.
    You’re the places that you’ve been to,
    and the one that you call home.
    You’re the things that you believe in,
    and the people whom you love.
    You’re the photos in your bedroom,
    and the future you dream of,
    You’re made of so much beauty,
    but it seems that you forgot
    When you decided that you were defined,
    by all the things you’re not.

    Hi... are you still out there? I've just joined the Hoarding team to try to learn how to help my DH decrease his clutter. I'd appreciate any help and suggestions.

    Thanks,
