AS TIME GOES BY, AND BY AND BY

I think that this is a good title for my continued weight loss journey. I lost 30 lbs. over the course of 1 year and have gone up and down over the past 24 months. I lost some inches, and I found them back in other places. Exercise has helped. Exercise is just one piece of the puzzle. Sleep is an important piece of the puzzle, as is what I eat from day to day. My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being ...

My blood pressure goal was 135/85; today it is 131/82(and it has been lower) I still am working to loose the weight, but being healthier in all aspects is just as important.
The SparkTeams are a great way to gain support, and I absolutely love the MysteryReaders team. It is an active group and these ladies really keep you on your toes.
The ultimate goal is to keep the focus on healthy living.

A Christmas prayer from my heart to yours:
Dear God, please bless this Christmas with peace, joy, and love. May the happiness of Baby Jesus' coming be felt in your home.

Remember to visit the manger and worship with the angels and shepherds as you prepare for Christmas.

~~~Live & Laugh~~~
Laugh your heart out,
Dance in the rain.
Cherish the moment
Ignore the pain.
Live, laugh, love,
Forgive & forget
Life's too short to be
Living with regrets.

Thought I'd stop by with a smile emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
And brighten up your Wednesday for awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon
~~~HAPPY WEDNESDAY~~~

If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face.
And when that person has ugly thoughts every day,
every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier
until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.
You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth.
But if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
Barb

emoticon Hoping you choose to live your life with the following emoticon

I Choose....
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete;
I choose self esteem, not pity.
I choose to listen to my
inner voice,
not the random
opinion of others.

Have a Spectacular Sunday!!
Lots of ((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & Smiles
