I'm currently participating in the BLC as a LOVELY LIME! Our spring challenge is Spring It On and I'm trying to find some ways to spark some weight loss during the challenge.

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.

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

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, was a beautiful life."~ ~ Doe Zantamata ~ ~

    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog High - Low. I can manage to eat very healthy for 3 - 4 days in a row and then something goes astray. A lot of it has to do with my social life and how much of it revolves around restaurant eating and wine drinking! Other times, who knows! Those are the times I am working on figuring out so I can stop them before they start. emoticon

    A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.

    Hugs are fat free, sugar free, and requires no batteries, helps the immune system,
    reduces depression, blood pressure, and induces sleep. It's invigorating,
    rejuvenating, and has no unpleasant side effects. It's nothing less
    than a miracle drug. Hugging is also all natural. It's organic, naturally sweet,
    has no artificial ingredients, environmentally safe, and 100% wholesome.
    Hugging is the ideal gift. Great for any occasion, fun to give and receive,
    shows that you care, comes with it's own wrapping paper,
    and of course, it's fully returnable

    Wanda, what I like about you is easy, I like everything!
    You have always made me feel welcomed and been so kind to me. You have a big heart and I know you must be a lovely person. Those who share ''real life'' with you must know how blessed they are. Thank you!!
