This is Magie. Phat Cat. Laid Back. No Worries! Look in my gallery for a "Family Photo".
Before.......................... this is the best I could find
After ! The New Me !
The wife and I have 5 cats now. Used to be 6 of them. Our eldest passed away this year. She was 17. We have no children, just the cats. Trust me, they're just like kids though. Each has their own personallity. I'll post a group photo as soon as I get one.
I finally got to do some more work on the pickup this week while on vacation. ( July 2008. ) I'm getting it done, albeit slowly but surely. Look in my gallery for some recent pictures.
Now that I'm farther along with my weight loss journey, I would like to take this moment to thank all of my Spark Friends and Team Mates for their support. And, most of all, I would like to give a Great Big Thank You to SparkPeople, because without this site, none of this would have been possible. The blog page has been a big motivaional tool for me as well. Each week when I post a new entry, I like to review the previous entry just to see how much I've been able to accomplish each week. Seeing those results helps to keep me focused on the task at hand. And hopefully, anyone else that happens to read my posts can take with them some of that motivation for themselves. After all, we are all here to help one another. If that happens, I'll be pleased just knowing that I was able to help give someone that extra little push to keep them motivated.
We are ALL here for the same goal. Why would anyone NOT take the opportunity to lend a hand? There is POWER in numbers. There is a GREAT NUMBER of people here! Use the POWER! Gather STRENGTH from OUR NUMBERS, because, Together, we CAN make a difference. Together, we can HELP each other! Together, we CAN change a LIFE!
WOW! I've Reached My Goal! Now the Real fun begins. Thank You SparkPeople for all of your help in reaching my goal. This truely is a great place to be in my life right now. A new me, a new lifestyle, it just doesn't get any better than this. It was soooo easy. I should have done this a long time ago. Well, I won't waste any more time worrying about that now. There is so much more I want to do. At the risk of repeating the old axiom one time too many, if I can do this, I KNOW you can!
GET 'ER DONE ! I Did!
I GOT MY WEIGHT STRAIGHT IN 2008 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm Back To Track Again! I need to do a little maintenance as I've got a few to take off. This time however, I know the outcome will be good as the foundation is already there. I just have to " plug and play " it again. I'll keep you posted in my blog.
To get my weight straight in 2008. To make a total commitment to and for myself to make the right decisions for healthy life choices.
I met my goal 8/23/2008 with the help of Spark People.
I'm back to track to maintain what I accomplished.
Tracking the numbers is what works best for me. I won't make that mistake again.
Life long resident of Va. But, I wish I could have the time to visit the whole USA. Really be the typical tourist and see all the natural wonders of our country.
Bowling, boating, and fishing are my favorite things to do. I also have an old Ford pickup I'm slowly rebuilding. New parts get installed when I have the money.
