Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am a grandma who decided I wanted to sit on the floor and play with my first grandchild. But I couldn't. So I started going to the gym, signed up with a personal trainer, and eating better. Over the last 18 months, I lost 50 pounds!
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.

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 for the remarks. That dog has been a great walking companion. She is 11 years old and still walks everywhere. I don't know that I'd bring her to Ikea EVER, but she does enjoy the outdoors and riding in the car and running the last little bit home.
I love your working out every day. You are really making this work for you.

Hi Carolyn! Thank you for your comment on my blog "Making Blueberry Jam"! That's great that you've made jam with blackberries! Good for you! They make nice presents. I could never eat 13 pints of jam by myself lol !!!

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!
