My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.

A little motivation for you this weekend .......

The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone; the future is distant. Today you CAN succeed. Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours. -Unknown

OMG Yvonne, I love your quilts! You have an amazing talent! I'm Anna from the Grey Wolves team. I am stopping by to wish you well and great success with the Fall Frenzy Challenge! If you have the time and patience to create such lovely quilts, I am confident you have what it takes to reach your weight loss goals. You have to have a great understanding of slow and steady right!
