Hi There

Welcome to my world! I retired from my job as a correctional counselor at a medium security prison at the end of July. Naturally I still consider myself quite young and plan to feel this way about myself for the foreseeable future. Who wouldn't? And now I want to concentrate on my health and vitality (and music, books, family and faith). I joined Spark in 2010 and have lost and gained and am now back where I started. So I'm not going to make any great declarations about how much I'm going ...
Welcome to my world! I retired from my job as a correctional counselor at a medium security prison at the end of July. Naturally I still consider myself quite young and plan to feel this way about myself for the foreseeable future. Who wouldn't? And now I want to concentrate on my health and vitality (and music, books, family and faith). I joined Spark in 2010 and have lost and gained and am now back where I started. So I'm not going to make any great declarations about how much I'm going to lose, or how great I'm going to feel or how much butt I'm going to kick. I'm feeling positive and motivated. I'm making a plan. The weight ticker is back on the page. And surprisingly, I don't really care who sees my weight any more. The ticker is for me. I expect to enjoy watching it go down. See? Positive thinking and motivation. It's working already. Glad you stopped by. Hope you'll stop again. In the meantime laugh, love and enjoy life. That's what it's for.

I love herbal teas. I drink the peachy ones and the berry ones. But I don't use artificial sweetners in them. I use just a little real sugar.

I figured it all out If I click on your Spark Page "leave comment" (why that button is there I have no clue)..., under your status, it says set to private. Now I know how to get to my friends feed on a totally different page....

I wish I was disappearing. I followed my plan all week and I'm down one pound. Ugh...again I blame my whacky hormones. emoticon

Sorry I haven't been around much. I promise to try and be a better spark buddy emoticon Notice I said promise to try?

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I don't miss the soda's at all. I drank diet soda's for years and wanted to cut out the diet sweetners. Now I usually have 1-2 glasses of sweetened ice tea a day then switch to water. But I use real sugar, not diet and I figure it into my calorie allowance. emoticon

..Yes, Cheetah Girl got her knee shot today. It's a cocktail of cortisone (kenalog) and lidocaine and makes me feel like I gots a new knee for the next 3 months. And he is a definite HOTTIE, but I'm not as forthcoming as your Moms is. I think the reason I keep putting off my surgery is because I won't see him any more.... emoticon
