Oct./2010-Tho not a "pink" person, I've changed my page color in honor of this imp. issue & it's survivors. My way of showing support this month, tho I don't have cancer myself.

July/2010 - Well, I'm finally getting to update this page, as it's my 1 yr. Anniversary on SP this month. WooHoo!!

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS WEEK/MONTH.

Oct./2010-Tho not a "pink" person, I've changed my page color in honor of this imp. issue & it's survivors. My way of showing support this month, tho I don't have cancer myself.

July/2010 - Well, I'm finally getting to update this page, as it's my 1 yr. Anniversary on SP this month. WooHoo!!

I'm please to say that I am NOT a couch potato anymore! I exercise every day. I LUV the pool and walk a lot. Even do strength training all week long. So, that's my steps forward...

On the food front, it's steps backward. Tho I'm eating healthier, I still eat too much...way TOO MUCH (LOL)! So, I go over my calorie allowance consistently. That's my big goal for this year, to stay within my allowance consistently.

SP has been GREAT! this year. I started out slowly last July, and built 'til I'm getting awards for attendance and consistency. WooHoo! I love racking up the points! and buying Goodies for myself and others. LOL

The rest of my life is pretty much the same. I do a lot at my Church and am starting a job caring for a man just out of a nursing home. I'm depending on SP to help me stay motivated and focused, so I can reach my goal this year.

July/2009 -I've been on every diet and have lost and regained weight time and again. Now my health in involved as I have diabetes, so it's not just a matter of my clothes not fitting and wanting to look good. My current goal is modest, only 8 pounds over the next month. Help!

I'm retired and living the good life in Florida. I thank God every day for this wonderful life I have by much volunteering at my Church. Getting down to my goal weight would make me more comfortable on my feet during these activities.

✹A Priceless Gift✹
Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,
It cannot see nor hear,
And in your times of trouble,
It is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.
~Helen Steiner Rice~

Have A Wonderful Weekend...

Just Because...

Today is not a holiday
It isn't even your birthday
But I still thought I'd like to send
A special message to my friend

You make me laugh and make me smile
You ease my troubles for a while
When clouds are thick and skies are gray
You put some sunshine in my day

You're really thoughtful sweet and kind
A friend like you is hard to find
I know I've told you once or twice
That I think you are very nice

But someone who's as great as you
Should be told more often than I do
And so I send these words with love
Why did I send them?.....just because
--Anonymous--

You have brought so much joy into my life....
I am Blessed to call you friend!

Love, Teresa

Thank you for you: for who you are,
However far away;
And for the words you send to me,
Always happy for what you say.
Knowing simply that you're there,
Yet thinking much of me,
Opens up my happiness,
For all the world to see.
✹* *.✹* *.✹
I am so Blessed by your presence in my life!
Hugs, Teresa

.**✴.**✴
Your friendship has helped me grow.
Your encouragement has helped me
gain confidence in myself.
Knowing someone as caring as you has
made me more sensitive to the needs of others.
Your understanding has helped me to become
more open about my feelings, and listening
to your observations has made me
think a lot about what really matters.
Your friendship has made me see life
as something to be enjoyed. . .
especially with someone like you.

Wishing you a Wonderful Weekend!
Hugs, Teresa

Obstacles don't have to stop you.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
