My Favorite Animal
Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken.."
She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else in the class laughed.
My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.
He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she'd asked the other children.
So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal's office again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am. Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.
I told her, "Colonel Sanders."
Guess where I am now.

A man and woman were having dinner in a fine restaurant. They were gazing lovingly at each other and holding hands. Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed the man slowly sliding down his chair and under the table, but the woman acted unconcerned.
The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still, the woman appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware her dining companion had disappeared.
The waitress went over to the table and said to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table.
The woman calmly looked up at her and said, "No, he didn't. He just walked in."

One year ago today I found SP quite by accident. I had been overweight for some time & was looking for a height/weight chart on the net. Talk about good luck!!
During the past year I have lost many inches (not sure how many because I regrettably did not measure when I started), 30 pounds, my prediabetes status, my idea that this was just another "diet" and I would try it for a little while etc. I have "found" so much more! Lots of new Spark buddies across the globe, numerous recipes, new information about good health, eating right, exercises, challenges, support & encouragement, etc.
This has become a lifestyle & not another diet for me. I still crave sweets or high calorie foods (and occasionally give in to small amounts of them), but have learned not to quit the program, but just pick up & go on. I religiously use the food tracker, but need to measure & weigh food more than I do as my eyes tend to "lie" to me. I walk on the treadmill & sometimes with Leslie, but do not do enough ST. I need to work on this. I cannot do a lot of the exercises that I really need to because of my arthritis & bursitis pain.
Saturday is the 5K walk for breast cancer with my DD, GS & his fiancÚ. Hope to make pictures & will post next week.
DH had a restless night & we ended up trying to sleep in our recliners. (I would not stay in bed after he left so I could keep an eye on him....we live in a 2 story house). He says he looks like & feels like a mummy. This is true as they have both legs wrapped in Ace bandages from the top of his thighs to his toes. I will remove the thigh parts tomorrow & we go back to the doctor's office on Friday where they will remove the lower part & put compression hose on him. He will have to wear these several weeks.
Thank all of you for the prayers, concerns & good thoughts sent our way. SP are the best!!
Have a Spark filled day!!!!
