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.

    People come & go in our lives,
    but they are always there for a reason.
    We have the choice every day to love
    & be loved by the friends who are in our path.
    I choose today to show you my love for you...
    the joy & laughter we share, the tears we've shed,
    the many prayers we've prayed for each other, all
    these things have filled my days with a purpose!!
    This is a tough world we live in...friends like y'all
    make my days so much better.
    You are a Gift from God & I'm so thankful He
    blessed me with your presence in my life!
    Much Love, Teresa

    You Never Know
    ¸.•* *•¸.•* *•¸.•* *•¸.•* *•
    You never know when someone
    May catch a dream from you.
    You never know when a little word,
    Or something you may do
    May open up a window
    Of the mind that seeks the light
    The way you live may not matter at all...
    But you never know - it might.

    And just in case it could be
    That another's life through you.
    Might possibly change for the better
    With a broader brighter view.
    It seems it might be worth a try
    At pointing the way to the right.
    Of course, it may not matter at all,
    But then again it might.
    ¸.•* *•¸.•* *•¸.•* *•¸.•* *•
    You are so special;
    Thank You For Changing My Life!

    Thank you for you: for who you are,
    However far away;
    And for the words you send to me,
    Near mad for what you say.
    Knowing simply that you're there,
    Yet thinking much of me,
    Opens up my happiness,
    Undone for all to see.
    ❤•* *•.¸❤•* *•.¸❤
    I'm so Blessed to have you as my friend...
    Hugs, Teresa

    Winners take their dreams seriously.
    Winners never give up and won't let you give up either.
    Winners have attitude.
    Winners care in their sleep.
    Winners make big things happen a little at a time.
    Winners say "yes" to freedom and change.
    Winners go with the flow.
    Winners see the beginning in every ending.
    Winners expect the best.
    Winners inspire the best in others.
    Winners are the richest people in the world
    when it comes to experience, laughter and love.
    In my book, YOU are a winner!
