�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

    Thanks for your comments on my recipe blogs and for the Kudos on my weight loss! I am actually down 150 pounds total as I had lost before joining SparkPeople! 50 pounds to go...hoping to reach my goal in 2017! emoticon
    I am always willing to check out new things and will check out the NuNatural Stevia! I see a 100 count box of packets on Amazon is $9.98 and I have Amazon Prime so no shipping!
    Hope you have a great Friday and weekend!

    Yeah, I put on 5 lbs this week "for no apparent reason" due to binges.

    I guess turning 65 reminded me of all the people who never made it. There have been a lot of them.

    If you watch your nutritional needs - not talking calories here - it will definitely help stave off Altzheimers. If you don't feel you're getting the nutrition, one Ensure daily helps a lot! My DH is 95 now and because his eating has become irregular, I give him one Ensure with breakfast and he just puts it over his cereal. At least I know I am meeting his nutritional needs. It's different being in charge of someone else's needs.

    Have you thought about joining the 5% Challenge? You can find the link in any of my recent blogs. They are absolutely No Stress, No Pressure. All Encouragement.

    Anyway, it was fabulous hearing from you! Like me, you're one of the original Sparkies!

    Huggers & Happy Holidays,
    p.s. sometimes the memories Are more important than the calories!
