When I first joined this site, I wrote "Life goes on, and I'm tired of sitting on the sidelines watching." I've spent the vast majority of my life sitting on the sidelines...mostly because I just wouldn't allow myself to join in, to be happy, or to be successful!! Pretty dumb, eh? (Ya, I'm Canadian)

If John Glenn could go into space at 77, and Katsusuke Yanagisawa could climb Mt Everest at 71, even though I'm a 58 year old grandma, it's not too late for me either. It's not going to be easy, but my life alarm has been going off too many times lately for me to ignore it any more. My body is falling apart from abuse and neglect, and if I don't do something NOW, I won't be able to walk without a cane in a few years...definitely not something I want to have happen any time soon!!

I'm also going to get back to my blogging...I've been away from my writing from far too long, and at least the people here understand what I'm going through!

    If you're looking for a challenge and ready to make a commitment....I have the challenge for you!

    Biggest Loser is the name. It's a 10 week commitment with 10 teams of 24 members each. Main requirements are to weigh in each week and do the interteam challenges (ITC's). Our inter team challenges) consist of exercise and nutrition. They are very helpful in losing the weight and inches and it's fun to compete with other teams for points. Individual teams might have mini challenges of their own. If you are interested, go to my spark page and click on the blue Biggest Loser team icon. SUMMER CHALLENGE STARTS JUNE 7th!

    Join the team and then sign up on the following thread: WAITING LIST FOR A SPRING CHALLENGE TEAM. This is right below the Chit Chat thread.

    emoticon Happy St. Patrick's Day emoticon

    St. Patrick was a gentleman
    Who through strategy and stealth
    Drove all the snakes from Ireland.
    Here's toasting to his health.
    But not too many toasting so
    Lest you lose yourself and then
    Forget the good St. Patrick
    And see all those snakes again.
