Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hello my fellow Sparklers, my name is Sheila! I use to want to lose weight just to be thin, now I just want to be both spiritually & physically healthy! High blood pressure, border-line high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, all haunt me to the core but in every cloud there is a silver lining! I will NOT STOP until I ACCOMPLISH what I set myself out to do & that is to be VICTORIOUS in every area of my life! Losing weight just to be thin is a thing of my past, now I desire to EAT BETTER, Drink 8 to 10 cups of water a day, & continue to EXERCISE to my hearts delight, using a variety of fitness DVDs, joining a walking group, or even a gym! I just want to be SUCCESSFUL this time around! Wish me well, Sparklers, wish me well!

'Twas the month after Christmas,
and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
at the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales
there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store
(less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt---
I said to myself, as only I can
" You can't spend a winter disguised as a man! "
So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chips
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
" Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want to chew only on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore---
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!"
