Working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

I've lost weight with TOPS and SparkPeople but I'm not yet where I need to be. I love the support that I get from my Sparkfriends and teams.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople challenges and am a member of the BLC challenge team Lovely Limes.

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life.

I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy".

I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.





My Program:
Eat Wisely!

Move More!

Live fully in each day!

Show Love and Kindness!

Trust!

Pray!




Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force.
I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!.
I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.

Other Information:
My Mantra -
Believe in Miracles.
Forgive everyone.
Life is not fair, but it is good.

My Other Mantra:
What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you!

And we all should read this:
If every morning, You can find a reason to say,
�Yes, it�s going to be a beautiful day.�
And every day, you find a reason to say,
�Yes, it is a beautiful day.�
And every night, you find a reason to say,
�Yes, it was a beautiful day.�
Then one day, You�ll look back and easily say,
�Yes...it was a beautiful life.�

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ~~"A SMILE"~~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive
without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it,
and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

Sending prayers and healing thoughts your way with all you have been going through lately. Keep up those good choices you have been making and not allowing stress to derail your goals. Not easy with all you have been facing. So sorry to hear about your ankle. emoticon emoticon

(I came across this, and it said that a teenage girl with cancer wrote this, and that she wanted
as many people as possible to read this.)
So I'm sharing this with you, and hoping you can share this with someone, too.
emoticon emoticon SLOW DANCE emoticon emoticon
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round? Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Do you run through each day? On the fly?
When you ask how are you? Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed, with the next hundred chores
running through your head?
You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Ever told your child, we'll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die, Cause you never had time to call and say,"Hi"
You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
When you run so fast to get somewhere, you miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....thrown away.
Life is not a race. Do take it slower. Hear the music, before the song is over.

The second day of a diet is always easier than the first..
By the second day you are off it. (Is it the second day yet????)
I've been dieting all morning. AM I SKINNY YET???

Vegetables are a must on a diet.
I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread and pumpkin pie.
