Ready for "another" change of life

Was time to update this since the last update started out that I have been on SP for over a year...........well is closer to 5 years now. Procrastination seems to be an obstacle. OK now...........when I joined SP I was heading into the 170's and pre-diabetic ...........my entire family diabetics and on insulin. Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you ...

OK now...........when I joined SP I was heading into the 170's and pre-diabetic ...........my entire family diabetics and on insulin. Seen first hand what can happen if this disease is not taken seriously. That is not to say I have my nose to the grindstone all the time but rather I am a work in progress, thank you Lord! I have managed to lose some weight and have had set backs like surgeries and illness, and yes just plain laziness. I am responsible for what I have become and what I can be. With help of this wonderful site and even more wonderful people that I have met on this journey I hope to be around a few more years so might as well make them as healthy as possible. Would appreciate a "boot" along the way and if I can give a helping hand to you along the way I will gladly do so. We can do this together!!!

Just send you the info you requested and you can google the 17 day diet and find even more stuff. I printed out the diet from the site - it is about 20+ pages.
We would love to have you join us!

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
~Ada V. Hendricks


Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas

Recipe for Christmas All Year Long

Take a heap of child-like wonder
That opens up our eyes
To the unexpected gifts in lifeó
Each day a sweet surprise.

Mix in fond appreciation
For the people whom we know;
Like festive Christmas candles,
Each one has a special glow.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

Add some giggles and some laughter,
A dash of Christmas food,
(Amazing how a piece of pie
Improves our attitude!)

Stir it all with human kindness;
Wrap it up in love and peace,
Decorate with optimism, and
Our joy will never cease.

If we use this healthy recipe,
We know we will remember
To be in the Christmas spirit,
Even when it's not December.
