    I didn't read your blog until the end of my day. They are good words to reflect on before sleeping. Thanks!

My Mom's father's family was Irish.

I didn't get the red hair (or temperament),
but I LOVE to laugh and sleep !

BLESSINGS!

The Runaway

Friday, January 20, 2012

Having somewhere to go - is a home.
Having someone to love - is a family.




Dear Sparkies . .

I would like to share a thought with you today.

Please be considerate, be kind.
Be careful what you say.

It is so easy to hurt a delicate little heart.





"I am runing away becas
you think I farted
when I dident.

PS You are Mean."

Annie

    I used to try to run away when I was a toddler. I couldn't do what my sister got to do because she was 9 years older than me.

This picture is so cute, yet sad.

Progress Report

Friday, January 20, 2012

I posted this on the message board the other day, and now I''m sharing it here.
emoticon emoticon

Do I feel my age? I don't. 57 and going strong, 58 in July. Don't know WHAT happened and now I'm nearly 58 but it's all good. I was going to be 18 till I die ( :) just like Bryan Adams), but I don't know that I feel 18 anymore ... probably more like 35 or so, lol. No-one cares anyhow. I have to keep up with the kids and now my gorgeous grand kids. Love it!!! Don't like the wrinkles I see, but Melissa, my youngest says, "Be proud of each and every one. They all tell a story." She believes that your face tells your story, and it does. We have been there and done that, in a lot of instances, and grown stronger each and every day. I think that if you have your health you have everything, and I praise and thank God daily for all his blessings daily. WooHoo!

One of the first things I saw and read on Spark People after joining was a write up about how beneficial it is to write a mission statement.

My mission Statement I wrote when starting this weight loss journey is stuck on my fridge and is a constant reminder of what I'm about. I must say that loosing 44 kg's so far has made a HUGE difference to how I feel, my confidence, and general well being. I was at my wits end, and that's a concrete cold fact, before I started at the end of April last year. The support from Spark People is truly phenomenal.




Then


Now



I've Decided I'm Doing This for Me

I'm doing this to get healthy.
After all, health IS wealth.
Who knows, God could call me to do something amazing at age 60 or 70.

I am a strong woman: I can be athletic. I can be beautiful.
I want to feel good in my own skin.
I want to find MYSELF beautiful.
I want to look in my mirror and smile.

I donít want to be disregarded because Iím too fat ... ever again.
I don't want to think "What if I felt good in my skin ..." anymore.
I don't want to look at a beautiful dress and think "Too bad..."
I don't want to think of myself in disgust. My body and I deserve better than that.
I don't want to mistreat my body. It's not my own little garbage can.
I don't want to devalue my health.
I do not want to live to eat .
I do not want to punish myself anymore.

I'm going to do this, slowly but surely.
And it WILL make all the difference.

I am made in Godís perfect image.


NOTHING taste's as good as thin FEELS!

There is still 10 kg's to go, but I'm shrinking everyday ! Praise God!


Well now, an entire essay, lol. Have a wonderful Friday, and a stunning weekend folks.

God Bless
Jenny

    You look terrific! You are such an inspiration to me. Last year
I had so many steps back that I never thought I would get back
on track. But I made the committment to start again and so far
I am right back on track. I started this year at 186. I can say
that I am down 8 lbs. I take everyday one step at a time. At this time I am exercising 30 minutes a day. I haven't stopped
even when I felt too tired. I have kept on going.
I am 56 yrs old this year. I don't feel like I am 56. I like feeling that I can do this journey and beyond.
So thanks again for being a "Sparker". Have a great weekend,Jenny!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jenny, you were beautiful then and beautiful and very healthy looking now. I love before and after pictures, yours are great to see. My first thought was how much energy and vitality you have now without the weight to carry around. It explains how very positive and inspiring you are. Now seeing these I am very motivated!

You rock, my born in 54 sister, you are an inspiration to me, it always lifts my spirits to read your blogs...this one especially!

    I have to say that I can not find a link or video to watch. I will get on my computer tomorrow and see if it is something with my iPad. This is not the first time the page has been blank, and I thought you were just pulling our leg....tee hee...

I love babies and kids laughter! It is so precious, and makes us laugh! Good medicine!!
