I have been wanting to write this letter for some time now. Unfortunately I did not think you were in a spot to accept it. I know it is late. But I really had to be sure you were ready for this.
I have known you all your life , we have been very close. I have watched you grow into the most amazing woman. You are very talented. Yes you can say you are a Jill of all trades and a Mistress of none. You sew, knit, crochet,paint. Your very creative. Your a handi-woman around the house. Your the Vet for your farm. You are working on your gardening skills. You cook, oh my Goddess can you cook!! No you are perfect,but who is???
You are a beautiful woman. It just took the right man to see it. You are his everything. That alone makes you feel special. As it should.
For you, the one big issue is your weight. You have been working on that. You cook clean meals right from the Clean Eating magazine. YUMMY!!!! You have been working-out. YOU just need to be more consistent, and motivated. O= Ok you need some motivation how's this... Your Dad had his first heart attack at age 51. You are now 52 going on 53. You take after your Dad in alot of ways, do you want to follow him there also??? I was going to put a picture of him up here but you do not have one in your album. I do believe you need to get one or two for your album. Dragonfly YOU CAN DO THIS. You are a strong woman. There is nothing you are incapable of doing I believe in you. Do you? You should.
Simply truth you are a beautiful,creative,fun,do it yourself kind of gal. You can and will do everything you put your mind to.
I have to let you go for now but I will write again, that you can count on.
Dragonfly you ROCK!
LOVE YOUR ALTER EGO

Tues nite after work I get a call telling me my Mom has a high fever, and has been throwing up. So the dutiful daughter I am I pack my bags and head up to her home 72 miles away. I make her soup from scratch, and have to make her eat just the broth. Two days of this. And then the STORM hits... I call home to find out my hubby has no electricity, no heat, no water. While he is home alone he has to care for 3 of our 4 dogs as well as as our 2 goats , 2 pigs and 5 ducks and 10 chickens. Our son and his wife and baby came with me to see her family. Thank the Goddess they did. We just had our electricity restored. Blessed be! So now we are all home safe and sound. You know it is wonderful to visit people, whether it be family or friends. But in the end Dorothy was right... THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME!!!
We had been all set to come home until they put a ban on driving on the highways. Five hundred dollar fine and a year in jail. No thanks! So now we are home and trying to unwind, and relax.
You know through the years our perception changes. At 10 years old this blizzard would have been about no school, sledding, snowball fights,building snowmen, shoveling for friends and family as well as for money, having hot chocolate.
In our teen years skiing, skating, hanging with your friends. As a young adult it's about shoveling out your car so you can get to work, and skiing if you can get away. By your fifty's you've been there done that it is all over-rated. Then you look back and snow was higher when we were younger. Did you happen to notice the younger you were the more things you to do?? LOL
Every few years there's a blizzard and you say one of two things 1] they call that a blizzard?? I remember the one from 19?? now that was a blizzard., or 2] really that's a blizzard?? We just haven't had a good winter in years where we've really had snow. Things have changed over the years.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my rants.

So I weighed in this morning and to my surprise ........Yes you guessed it I GAINED 2lbs!! So that is a total of 5lbs all together. So now for the why I gained those 5lbs. I have been out of my blood pressure medication all week. So hopefully this week I'll show some sort of lose.
I forgot to say I did pick up my meds. it was just at the time I ordered thewm I did not have the money for them. But I did get them and a couple others I needed. Thanks everyone. My meds are not something I play with. I appreciate every ones concern. Thank you.

I am so P>Oed. I can't stand it. I have been walking and drinking all my water eating clean again. I just got on the scale and I gained 3 lbs!!!!! What the fudge!! The scale is suppose to go DOWN not up! I am traking everything slow because I have had a respiratory virus for the last 21/2 weeks now and I am just starting to feel better. I don't want to over do it since it has been aggravating my asthma . But really 3lbs??? Give me a break. Well it looks like I am gonna have to do some tweaking somewhere. Weigh in is tomorrow , I have today to lose 3lbs just to be at my starting weight!! No I wont strive myself or do anything stupid. Just saying.I'll be happy if I lose 1lb. Well as much as I love to write and check out my teams I have some WORK to do. One foot in front of the other!

So here it is Dec 27th just 4 short days til the end of 2012. What have I accomplished????? Well if I am honest with myself...... nothing would be the answer. So since it is best to be truthful that is my answer. Of course I learned that the hard way. I am not sure what my weight was when I started 2012 but according to my weight line I did pretty good at one point. I had Dr's appt last week and I just wanted to cry. The scale showed 225lbs!!!! Just 8 small lbs short from where I originally started. I weighed myself today and it appears I lost 2 lbs since last week.Which is a good thing, but starting the New Year at 223lbs,rrrrr! This is my resolve to lose wt, and be consistent with my workouts, and tracking as well as keeping in touch with my Spark family.
With the holiday season coming to an end, and last minute gifts to be given. I have decided to give a healthy gift to my co-workers. Each are getting a pedometer and a water bottle as well as a journal to record in. I want my co-workers to know that I am planing on a healthy, fun Year. It is not about them, it is about me. I need to lose weight for me. So I can look in the mirror and be happy with the person I see there. So I would be excited to have my picture taken. So that I can chose clothes that I feel good wearing. So I can play with my 2 beautiful granddaughters. So that they have to run to keep up with me.
I know it all sounds so good. And the intention is there. But you and I know good intention always seems to fall off to the side somewhere along the way. So I am imploring all my Spark Family and friends PLEASE if you see I have not been tracking , posting or blogging you will literally kick my butt and put me back on the right track??????!!!!!!!!!! Thank you.
I also want to apologize to all my teams and team-mates. You counted on me and I let you all down. I know the team did not fall apart because of my poor participation. But it does speak badly about me. And I do not want to be that person. I want to honor my commitments to my teams, team-mates and most importantly MYSELF.
