Baby Autumn enjoying the zoo. Well, at least looking cute at the zoo.





Yes, that's a QUARTER under there! And they are delicious as they are big. :-)

I'm not into quick changes, but want to make steady progress and lifestlye changes that will keep me healthier in the long run.

In the past I've tried various diets. The results were temporary and the failures fueled guilt (which I promptly soothed with eating more). I started with tracking my water, then started tracking my food. I give myself permission to "fail" so I don't binge from guilt.

Yea! I met my first goal: lost 10 pounds!

Check out my church's Senior Pastor's Blog. He has been ill to the point of death in recent months and shares his struggles and observations. Very inspirational. He has been a marathon runner for years, but now can barely walk. The blog entry "Update" from April 25, 2009 will give you an overview of his conditions. Be sure to read the comments, too. As others share their own journeys we are all encouraged. (See my Signature section)

peas, potatoes, broccoli, tomatoes, corn, onions, pumpkins, squash, lima beans, green beans, okra, gourds, zuccini, watermelon, cantaloupe, .... then later on I will be planting greens, collards, purple hull peas ...

I pulled up in the yard once to find that same neighbor trimming my non-fruit-bearing, ornamental pear tree. Now I have pears growing on the bottom of the tree. After what I said to him that day, he has never been back!
