Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below

Just stopping by to wish you a blessed Sunday. One of my friends used to say, "You make it a great day" instead of "Have a great day".

Mine started off busy. I wasn't able to finish the laundry yesterday, so I got up early enough to do two loads before church--helped along by our littlest cat who threw up on the bed. :-( I had just changed the sheets last night, so I'll have doubly clean ones today. Any sign of spring up there yet?

A lot of magazines and newspapers use the internet a lot. I live in Michigan and wrote and copy edited for a magazine in Alabama. The small companies prefer to use contract work.

Thank you for your thoughtful words on my blog The Magic Number. I appreciated your insight.

I was actually trying to emphasize the "magic" that seems to derail us, when we are trying to do God's will, but fail. I know where I should be, health-wise an I am not there. I get to a certain point, then somehow get sabotaged. I know it's in my head. "I don't deserve this." "I can't do this." The next thing I know, even though I don't say it out loud, I end up off course and always have a justification. this seems to happen when I get to a certain weight. Somewhere in my subconscious that "magic number" tells me I'm doing something wrong, when I'm really doing something right!

So, I'm breaking that spell and creating some of my own "magic" with the help of my Lord, Jesus Christ. You can, too!

Shine on, Health Star, shine on! emoticon

I sensed, based on your page, you would like those authors. Congratulations on having your poems published. I've had some published, as well. I've also sold poems. I've had a song used in several churches. It's not a way to make a living, but it's rewarding.
