Christmas Day 2008
Pauline and Ed at Biltmore Estate - 9/9/09
I'm Pauline. I'm starting with SparkPeople at the age of 60. I grew up in New Hampshire and went to Piedmont Bible College in North Carolina where I met my husband (married him in 1968). We've lived in South Carolina (4 years in the 70's), Georgia (2 years), and Nassau, Bahamas (18 years), and have settled in South Carolina (the last 13 years). We have 4 great kids and 5 wonderful grandkids. I have been overweight since 6th grade. I lost 30 pounds with Weight Watchers 10 years ago, but gained it all back plus another 50 pounds! I hope SparkPeople will be the help I need!
March 8, 2009 - I'm now 6l and I've been with SparkPeople almost a year and am finally getting into it, thanks to my sister HAPPY1049. She told me how to use the Nutrition Tracker and got me into finding helpful teams, huddling, and posting messages. Now I'm doing and feeling better!
January 10, 2013 - Wow! It's been almost 4 years since I updated this. I lost 30+ pounds in 2011 and gained it all back in 2012. Now I'm trying to lose it again. I've lost 11 pounds so far.
Also, we now have 6 grandchildren: 4 boys and 2 girls. I babysit them all once a week (3 on Tuesdays and 3 on Thursdays). We still live in S.C.
I want to lose weight by being more active and eating healthy foods. I want to change my lifestyle, not just go on a "diet".
I am following the SparkPeople program.
I grew up in New Hampshire and now live in South Carolina.

✹A Priceless Gift✹
Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold.
For gold is cold and lifeless,
It cannot see nor hear,
And in your times of trouble,
It is powerless to cheer.
It has no ears to listen,
No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.
So when you ask God for a gift,
Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.

Have A Wonderful Weekend...

Today is not a holiday
It isn't even your birthday
But I still thought I'd like to send
A special message to my friend
You make me laugh and make me smile
You ease my troubles for a while
When clouds are thick and skies are gray
You put some sunshine in my day
You're really thoughtful sweet and kind
A friend like you is hard to find
I know I've told you once or twice
That I think you are very nice
But someone who's as great as you
Should be told more often than I do
And so I send these words with love
Why did I send them?.....just because
You have brought so much joy into my life....
I am Blessed to call you friend!

God doesn't require us to succeed, he only requires that you try.
Have a day filled with God's many Blessings!

Thank you for you: for who you are,
However far away;
And for the words you send to me,
Always happy for what you say.
Knowing simply that you're there,
Yet thinking much of me,
Opens up my happiness,
For all the world to see.

I am so Blessed by your presence in my life!
