I have an herb garden and several flower beds. I am a bird watcher. I keep feeders and water in the backyard for them. I love cats. I have two indoor only cats. I am a musician. I used to play the oboe. I am trading it in for a clarinet. I am sick of reed making, and I'm not going to spend my time on it anymore! I enjoy a variety of exercise, but swimming is my favorite.

I have an herb garden and several flower beds. I am a bird watcher. I keep feeders and water in the backyard for them. I love cats. I have two indoor only cats. I am a musician. I used to play the oboe. I am trading it in for a clarinet. I am sick of reed making, and I'm not going to spend my time on it anymore! I enjoy a variety of exercise, but swimming is my favorite.

I love everything about food. I love growing it, canning and freezing it, and eating it! I love to feel full, and I have quite an appetite. I am at a turning point in my Spark journey. I would like to lose about 20 more pounds, but I am ambivalent about making still more lifestyle changes that would take the weight off and keep it off. My doctors are thrilled with my weight as is. This weight is easy to maintain. What to do?

The problem is, this weight makes me feel mediocre. I look good, but not great. My fitness level is good, but not great. I want to be great, but I'm unwilling to make the long term changes that it will take to achieve that goal. The drama continues. What will I decide? At this point not even I know the answer to that question.

Oh, wow! I can see where Sundays are a killer for you and your eating. An hour and 45 minutes each way to church? My goodness, what a long drive! My church is about 10 minutes away, for which I am very thankful!

I am sure you know that it has been proven sleep deprivation makes one hungrier! Kudos to you for managing it as well as you do! emoticon emoticon

Congrats on the new-to-you skirt! Nice trade!

I didn't go to the Dr. It eased off with heat and rest and I knew it was just a muscle overstrained/spasming. I'm having to be careful not to overdo it since then as I've felt it twinge a few times when I get squirrely. lol. I'll be careful.

Thanks for the Goodie of the produce from your garden! Don't work too hard doing all that canning! emoticon emoticon

You are so welcome! Glad that I could help you in some way. Usually the antibiotics have a tendency to cause diarrhea and stomach upset. I hadn't heard of any causing constipation.

Glad that you liked the Goodie and your lunch sounds like it was delicious! My daughter and her boyfriend stopped by just a few minutes ago, they wanted to see the house since we had staged it for sale. My daughter thought it looked bare, but agreed that she liked it for the fact that it made the house look really a lot bigger. I hear that is what sells houses, light and space! emoticon
