I'm a Lime, I'm a lime, I'm a LOVELY LIME!!!

I'm currently participating in the BLC as a LOVELY LIME and now

The Limes winter challenge is Frosted Fitness Fun and I'm still determined to find some ways to spark weight loss during the challenge. I especially do not want to gain anything in December.

I'm double teaming against the pounds! Can't forget my wonderful 100 days of Weight Loss with Linda Spangle team. That book and the team have changed my life.

I've been working to live IN each day! It is way too easy for me to allow a day to disappear into busyness without taking any time to savor life.

I've lost weight with TOPS, SparkPeople, my SparkFriends, and the LIMES but I'm not yet where I need to be. I love the support that I get from all my Sparkfriends and teams, but I have to say that to have a 28 member team that is consistently supportive of each member and have the participation, caring and sharing that we have on the LIMES is a rare and beautiful thing.

I enjoy the Sparkpeople 30-day challenges too; I'm now repeating some of my special favorites.

This summer I am also joining the 5% Challenges as a Shooting Star. I'll continue No S and moderate carb eating and stay within my Spark calorie range. I'll also walk at least 2 miles 5 days a week and do some strength training every day.

Basically I'm just not quitting! I'm still trying to live mindfully and to be as healthy as possible.


Member Since: 1/7/2009

My Goals:
Long Term Goal: To be a very healthy, very old woman, surrounded by great-grandchildren and still living independently and enjoying my life. I want to be as healthy as I can be at age "almost seventy". I want to lose weight to a goal my doctor has set for me.


My Program:
Eat Wisely! Live fully in each day! Show Love and Kindness! Trust! Pray!



Personal Information:
I grew up in North Dakota and attended the University of North Dakota for one year. Returned to college when I was 44 and graduated - now that felt good. I live in Ohio now. My husband was stationed here for his last Air Force assignment and we stayed in the area when he retired from the Air Force. I've retired as of January 1, 2011!!. I've met the goal of getting back to quilting finally. Two small projects completed recently. It keeps my hands too busy for food. I also love reading, spending time with friends, and traveling occasionally.


Other Information:
My Mantra - Believe in Miracles. Forgive everyone. Life is not fair, but it is good. My Other Mantra: What doesn't kill you just doesn't kill you! And we all should read this: "If every morning, You can find a reason to say, Yes, it's going to be a beautiful day. And every day, you find a reason to say, Yes, it is a beautiful day. And every night, you find a reason to say, Yes, it was a beautiful day. Then one day, You'll look back and easily say, Yes...it was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    Evergreen boughs that fill our homes, with fragrant Christmas scents,
    Hearts filled with the loving glow that Christmas represents;
    Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed, festive holly berry,
    little faces bright with joy, loved ones being merry;
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Parties, songs, beribboned gifts, silver bells that tinkle,
    Christmas trees and ornaments, colorful lights that twinkle;
    Relatives waiting with open arms, to smile and hug and kiss us;
    These are some of the special joys, that come along with Christmas.

    emoticon emoticon Christmas Magic emoticon emoticon

    Are we too grownup to feel a thrill, as we light the Christmas tree?
    Are we immune to cookies, Christmas cards and Christmas glee?
    Are we too adult to "Ooh" and "Aah", at the Christmas candle's glow?
    Are we blasé about our gifts;...do we shun the mistletoe?
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Are we too mature for carols, for merry or for jolly?
    Do the decorations leave us cold, and the ornaments and holly?
    Fat chance! We'll never grow too old to love the Christmas magic.
    A year without a Christmas, would be boring, even tragic.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    So bring it on! The candy canes,the feasting and good cheer;
    O Christmas, lovely Christmas..you're the highlight of the year!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon ~A Few Letters To Santa~ emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Santa
    Mommy says that you only bring presents for the good little boys. That isn't fair.
    Dear Santa,
    How old are you? Is your first name really Santa? Can I be an elf next year?
    Who is your favorite kid? How do you fit all those toys in your sleigh?
    Dear Santa,
    How did you meet Mrs. Clause? Do you go to the bathroom at people's houses?
    Do the elves work all year or what? I also want a picture of you, and your signature,
    Dear Pere Noel,
    Could you come early this year? I've been really super good,
    but I don't know if I can last much longer. Please hurry.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Kris Kringle,
    Please give me a tank, a jet fighter, 20 green soldiers, and a bazooka gun.
    I'm planning a surprise attack on my brother. So don't tell anyone.
    Dear Santa,
    How do you pay for everything? How do you pay your elves?
    Are you rich, or do you make stuff magically or what?
    Dear Father Christmas,
    I wish you could leave a puzzle under the tree for me. And a toy for my sister.
    Then she won't want to play with mine and I can have it to myself.
    Dear Santa,
    Please give me a doll this year. I would like her to eat, walk,
    do my homework, and help me clean my room.
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Dear Santa,
    I would like just one of everything.
    Dear Santa,
    I lost my list of toys, so please just send me the stuff that you forgot from last year.
    Dear Father Christmas,
    What should I leave for your reindeer to eat? Do they like cookies, or carrots?
    My mom won't let me bring hay into the living room.
    Dear Santa,
    I need a new skateboard for Christmas. The one I got now crashes too much.
    Band-aids would be OK too.
