But I'm getting a little stuck, so I came here for more support and motivation to lose another 50 pounds in the end. And I've made it to "onderland" with the BLC.

I love lighthouses and how they combine the practical job of guiding ships to shore, they are inspirational to me. I love to think of their light showing me the rocks and shoals that will keep me from my goal of a healthy life.

grandchildren so far

Other Information:
A quote from Anne Perry’s Tathea offered me thought provoking words on war that have application to my internal battles:

“Do you want to fight for what is true so the wisdom and the light can belong to anyone who wants it? He said with sharp urgency. “Remember, there is no middle ground . . . We are for the light, the beauty, the good, or we are for darkness, pain, and bondage. There is no place between, only the illusion of it, and that too is a creation of the enemy, the eternal lie, that you can win without battle, reap without cost, triumph without courage or pain.” (p. 268)

Thanks so much for my goodie. I need it today. I definitely put to the test how many squats and lunges my legs can take. Have a great day.

Pancakes and sausage sound so good for dinner! We like to do that occasionally - meaning a couple of times per month. We also like omelet dinners also...


Have a good week!

Hi Carolyn,
thank you for stopping by my page,.
I know now that you mean by Schwans. We do have places like hat where you can go to buy fruits and veg., but not that company.
thanks for the advice on the stroller. I will just do what I am doing.
