I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in March. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I wished, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 1.5 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the next 2-3 weeks pending my mom's health after her fall last March, breaking an arm and leg. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.

After a very long plateau, I have made my 1st long term goal of 100# lost on 3/20/16. 1# added to the loss this week. The plateau is broken and now onto a small goal of 17# (no date to meet).

I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    -------- emoticon -------TOP TEN REASONS GOD CREATED EVE------- emoticon ------

    10. God worried Adam would be lost in the Garden of Eden, because he wouldn't ask for directions.

    9. God knew that someday Adam would need someone to hand him the remote. (It has been noted that men don't want to know what's ON TV, they want to see WHAT ELSE is on).

    8. God knew that Adam would never make a Dr.'s appointment.

    7. God knew that when Adam's fig leaf wore out, he would never buy a new one for himself.

    6. God knew that Adam would never take out the garbage.

    5. God wanted Adam to be fruitful and multiply, but he knew Adam would never be able to handle labor pains and childbirth.

    4. As "keeper of the garden", Adam would need help in finding his tools.

    3. Adam needed someone to blame for the Apple incident, and for anything else that was really his own fault.

    2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone.

    1. And the No. 1 reason of all (Tada, drum roll, fanfare) God stepped back, looked at Adam and declared " I can do better than that".......(AND HE DID)

    1. Never give up on anybody, miracles happen everyday.
    2. Be brave even if your not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
    3. Think big thoughts, relish small pleasures.
    4. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly.
    5. Never deprive someone of hope, it might be all they have.
    6. Strive for excellence, not perfection.
    7. Don't waste time grieving over past mistakes. Learn from them and move on.
    8. When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
    9. Never cut what can be untied.
    10. Don't expect life to be fair.
    11. Remember...success comes to the one that acts first.
    12. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
    13. Remember that nobody makes it alone.
    14. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who help you.
    15. Never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed.
    16. Laugh a lot. A good sense of humor cures almost all of life's ills.
    17. Don't miss the magic of the moment by focusing on what's to come.
    18. Watch for big problems. They disguise big opportunities.

    Thanks, Eileen, for the ornament idea. My big problem is that I don't do crafts, so I'd have to have someone help me or even do this for me. It sounds really cute. I also like the pizza box idea. The great grands are too young for anything right now, so it's really just the 2 boys (10 and 13). Hope that you have a great weekend! Hugs, Jeannie
