Last night, after my sister had slept off and on, she decides we will clean out closets. Mind you, my closet was the only one done. She got rid of an old computer, that was so old, you can only play games. Most of the things were hers. Old phones, Christmas bulbs, books, and candles.
While sorting through things, she found my weights, and DVD's. She said "When did you get these?" I told her a week ago, and yes I use them. Then she said "How much have you lost?" I told her that I had lost, and was down 1 dress or clothes size. She asked if I was walking my mile a day, and I said 2. She was so surprised, she thought I went back to bed after she went to work. She said I am glad that you are sticking this out.
So am I.

Today on the News, it was talking about the rain in Nigeria, how 12 people have died. My thoughts went to my friend there. I haven't heard from her, and I am worried.
But while I was thinking of her and her family, I am thinking of everyone, and the many blessings we have. In this country we are truly blessed, with the freedom to do whatever we want, as long as we don't break the law, but freedom of speech, to go to any church and worship however we please. The grocery stores, jobs, types of entertainment. We have so much, except for rain in many places.
I have asked my friend many questions. She has a good life. I am happy for that, but I still worry.
But I wish everyone all the blessings that I feel I have. I have a roof over my head, food, clothing, and my computer,(haha) but I wish everyone love, happiness, and joy, and health. God Bless.

According to the Sparks data system, I have spent 4,915 Spark Points on goodies. Can you image that? I was amazed. I told you folks, I would never have much in the way of points, because I like to give gifts. I think it is funny because in my world I am fairly poor, but in the Sparks World, I spend, spend, spend.
Isn't it amazing when you are turning on your computers, and someone, having read a huddle note, or read your blog, they decide, wow, this person could use some love, let's send them a gift. I think GIFTS are amazing. No matter how our day is going, you see that gift, and the enclosed message, if one is enclosed, you know someone took the time to say Hi, we care about you.
It is true magic. So to all you givers, God Bless You, one and all. Love

I woke up at 4 a.m. but I couldn't go for my walk because it was dark. I have to wait until 6 a.m. I got my 2 miles in and ran to the neighbors to get weighed on her new scales, Weight Watchers. So I lost 1 lb. Those pounds add up.
Then my dear neighbor, goes to the store, and brings us home McDonalds Breakfast. Bacon & egg something and 2 hash browns. I was so excited. I told her after I got done with the housework, I would meet her in the pool. The animals loved the breakfast. I had my All Bran creal and a banana. No it didn't look as good, or even taste as good, but I work hard to lose the weight that I have lost.
I joined Sparks in April. I have lost 22 lbs. and as of this morning, in 3 months, I have walked 127 miles. I work to hard to eat a 1,000 calorie meal at one sitting.
Yes I am pleased with myself. I have given up a lot. Cigarettes, but I am sorry, I will not give up the one glass of Diet Coke I drink a day. All the water, and not eating out. NO.
If it were not for Sparks I would not be exercising. My friends I just love. Very supportive. Sparks is now my life, truly it is all I have. Yes I have bad days, but in Sparks, THERE IS ALWAYS TOMORROW.

Got my 2 miles in. Was glad to know that my sister is feeling better again.
I watched a movie with Eric Roberts, where he is the President of the U.S. the movie is First Dog. There is a phrase that Abe Lincoln had said. This is not exact. "There is no greater man, than he who stoops to help a child."
Anyways it rained a good half hour last night. We sure needed it. We need a lot more. Hopefdully this week we will get some.
Have a good evening.
