Never Giving Up!

8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know ...
8/4/14 - Ok everybody, here I am with trying to start again! It's been quite the journey so far. Ups and downs and going back and forth with the same numbers since the end of 2012. I joined SP in Sept. 2011 and over the next year, I lost 67#, plateaued forever and put around 20# back on, give and take over the next couple of years. I feel that I need to be more diligent at doing low carb as good as I can and staying in my low carb ranges. If I can do that the majority of each week, I know that I'll lose. It's tough with exercising but I can at least pedal on my recumbent bike. I love that and I try to stay on it until I still love it! That's how I used to lose the weight. Up the exercise with what I can do. So here's to me! I can do it with all my wonderful, awesome Sparking friends! My goal is 155# from what my dr. told me in 2011. He said to get down to there and go from there. Well, I keep plugging along at it and will get there in 2014. I can feel it now!!

My Program:
I'm making more healthy choices with food, paying more attention to exercise. I try to keep my goal in view every day.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Seattle, WA and have lived in the Midwest for around 30 years now, married to my best friend. We own and operate our dairy farm. My husband and I have two grown children. Our daughter's married and our son farms with us full-time. We also have our beloved English Springer Spaniel named Hope! We love her undying love for us every day! We raise corn, soybeans, barley, alfalfa and wheat too sometimes. I love the distinct 4 seasons in the MIdwest, but not always the extreme temp. of heat and humidity in the summer and the cold winds along with snow in the winter. But we know that the things we don't care for as much, find us enduring and then that builds character! I love gardening, baking, collecting, shopping, sewing, music, singing, piano, painting, decorating, embroidery. I hope to become more and more healthy that I can enjoy all of these things more.

Other Information:
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's face it, English is a crazy language...
There is no EGG in EGGPLANT, no HAM in HAMBURGER, neither APPLE, nor PINE in PINEAPPLE
ENGLISH MUFFINS were not invented in ENGLAND nor FRENCH FRIES in FRANCE? Sweet-meats are candy, while sweet breads, which aren't sweet, but are meat? QUICKSAND can work slowly, boxing RINGS are SQUARE, and a GUINEA PIG is neither from GUINEA, nor is it a PIG.

And why is it that WRITER'S WRITE but fingers don't FING, GROCERS don't GROCE, and HAMMERS don't HAM?
Doesn�t it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend, If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn�t preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?

In what other language do people play at a recital. and recite at a play? We ship by truck, but send cargo by ship. WE have noses that run, and feet that smell. We park in a driveway and drive in a parkway. And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, and a wise man and a wise guy are opposite?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up while it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and which an alarm goes off by going on. And in closing if Father is POP, how come Mother's not MOP?

Hopefully, this will get you off to a great start for this week!!!

Sorry I haven't been on here. There is a virus attached to my spark site and it wont let me do anything with it. It all started with a short questionaire This is from my cell phone. I have to get someone to look at it and see if they can fix it.

Daphne137, your comment on my exercise feed. I live in Southern California. We've had a little rain and the weeds went crazy.
