I see London, I see France,
I feel like doing a victory dance.
I'm coming out of a dense fog
Cutting loose from a yucky bog.

It's time for me to start to shine
And kick myself in my own behind
To get to work and lose the rest
Of this weight that I detest.

Always slim throughout my life
Then hormones hit and what strife
It has caused, but no doubt
I'll win this battle in this last bout.

Wishing all a wonderful day
Treat yourself good in every way.
Thank you all for your good cheer
Your support I hold most dear.

Sunny Funny Saturday

Saturday, June 05, 2010

Another day to get it right
My path here as been bright.
And although I've done pretty well
Not good enough to call "swell."

I've got 20 more to go, I say,
So here it is - another day
To put on a smile and walk the walk
So I won't be just talk.

Determined and persistent, I am
So this plateau has got to scram.
Wishing all a fun, sunny day.
Guess I'll now be on my way.

Loss, Grief and Letting Go

Friday, June 04, 2010

For past three years eight loved ones died
And my sadness was something I've tried to hide.
Now three more are very ill
And so much of this grief is with me still.

But with SP I've learned to eat and drink
A healthy way that makes me think
More clearly and keep my head on straight
With protein and carbs that are first-rate.

So even though I've a broken heart I think
That life won't always have to stink.
One day soon the sun will shine
And this sorrow I can leave behind.

Until that day I'll do my best
To make sure I get my rest.
Now it's time to do just that
So I can be rid of the rest of this fat.

    Even though it can be difficult at times taking care of yourself does help with the losses.
You are a wonderful writer. I'll hold you in my prayers.

New Walking Shoes

Thursday, June 03, 2010

Rockin and rollin in my new shoes
Is this exercise, or just the blues?
Feel like I'm 6 feet in the air
And walking like a drunk w/o a care.
How to adjust to these funky new shoes
Or is it just more money I blew
On yet another workout trick
That doesn't work worth a tick.
So out I'll go again on a trek
And looking so silly, oh, what the heck!

    About the new shoe
I've got some too
But you and me
Would safer be
If we did swim
No harm to life or limb!
While up and down the pool we skim
Enjoying our every whim!

Jury Still Out on New Athletic Shoes

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

The other day I bought those shoes with the thick soles that make you work out your upper legs and butt as you walk. You kinda roll on them? Someone told me they are advertised on TV and have a special name,but these are not that particular brand.

Okay, first of all, they take some getting used to. At first, I felt like I was walking on stilts. (okay, mild exageration) Then the shape of the bottom really takes awhile to adjust to. They make walking a real workout, but I'm not sure I like these. Fortunately, I didn't spend a fortune, and can take back the second pair which I bought for when these wear out.

Has anyone else tried them?

    Nope I haven't tried them; glad to read your review of them. I buy shoes on sale, usually more than one pair, then keep them in the closet because I always end up needing a pair really bad on the spur of the moment. So this way I always have a back-up pair. Well, I did that a couple times without remembering I ALREADY had a back-up pair; so now I have extra, which is good since I'm unemployed, so I haven't tried on the latest and greatest, which doesn't sound to swift to me.

I usually wait a couple years after "new" things like this come out, to see if they are a flash in the pan or worth it. So I'm glad to read your review!

    I have my Sketcher Shape Ups on right now!!! I love them, you are right though, they take some serious getting used to. When i first started walking in them, it felt like I was a rocking But now that i've been wearing them for a while, my back stopped hurting and I have no stress in my legs!! They may look funky, and take some getting used to, but I love them!!

    I debated about it and decided to buy shoes that will allow me to be safer on an EMT run. Pager goes off at the craziest times and I don't have time to change shoes!

    They take a lot of getting used to, and my pair came with a DVD to learn how to walk with them, a first here. At least they were 20 percent off online at, and if I can't figure out how to use them without breaking my neck (on rugs in the house), then return shipping is free.

Good luck to both of us! emoticon

    I bought a pair but have only been wearing them around the house because of my mobility issues Jean said I need to get used to them for two weeks before I can wear them outside.I sort of feel like I am in the circus ,the clown with the extremely long legs and very clumsy to go with it.I haven't severely bruised my tailbone yet ! I am reserving judgement on them though .I only bought one pair .
