quitters never win..winners never quit!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I think I saw that saying on a Tee shirt..but,it really inspired me!I was on the walking path and met an OLD lady..trust me she was not OLD!She asked me to walk with her and I sat worrying about leaving her behind...while I was tying up my sneakers.I looked up and saw her hanging from some workout bars that were beside the trail.By her knees!I should'nt have been worrying about her because she had to come back to get me...LOL...She dusted me off so bad my face was really RED!Myrna was this tiny petite black lady that looks like she should be serving cookies and milk..Not have beautifully sculpted abs,arms,back and legs!And she is 70!!!!!It goes to show you that looks can be and are deceiving......GO MYRNA!!!..... emoticonSUSAN

The gym smells yucky

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

My little granddaughter Aaliyah was running errands with me because she was getting lunch out of the deal.We dropped in at the gym to check my locker for sweaty clothes I may have left.Her highness stood at the door fanning the air..It smells yucky in here grammy!This place needs pine cleaner scrunching up her nose and pewing melodramatically..I laughed and grabbed her hand as we went out the door.Grammy?Our school is ending our P.E. Program next year and I like P.E.!Could you sign the TISHON? smiling I said Petition? Yeah she laughed..That!Okay,but lets get lunch.I thought about it and wondered why,of all classes would they end P.E.?Our children are getting obese and for some it's the only exercise they get.When my DD was in the 10th grade she opted out of P.E. and thus gained 35 pounds since!Aaliyah is tiny for 5 but a ball of energy.I went to her school and signed the Tishon (; and she thinks i've saved the day...What do ya'll think?Is P.E. as important as I think it is?? emoticonSUSAN

    We're having the same issues here in MN. My flowers are popping up. Although it's not that warm (I wish it was) here. We're under a Winter Storm Watch for Tues and Wed. which will throw things off.

Her life was about more than weight!

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Whether im goal weight or fat as a cow,Im happy,I have to be!Feeling shame or disappointment is not an option!!I promised myself that it's okay to be down,just not down on myself.I am worthy of having what I want and If by chance that never happens.I will survive and be happy with ME!A woman in our news committed suicide due to her weight(sound of screeching brakes)Hold up!!!I can live with anything,as long as I'm alive!
The family said another female had been teasing her at work.
That Sicko drove a fragile person to kill herself....
She should be shamed of her part in it all.
We are all in charge of our own minds.
but,some people are more tender hearted.
How would it feel to know you had a part in someones death?
I for one can say,I could not fathom living with the guilt!
What makes us all unique is being different from each other.
We all make up different squares on a quilt.
That's what my Grammy used to say.
You know the saying,Pay it forward?
I do and I will till the day I die!
It's human nature to laugh at each other,
just not in malice.
A very heavy(600+lb)man was In Lowes
he was asking for help.
Not one person pretended to see him waving his arm.
I asked could I help him.
he replied "You sure can sugar!"
I helped him ,got a huge hug and went about my business,
Another Lowes worker told me shes so glad I helped him.
Those fat people really stink!
I was too stunned to say much.
I did say "Shame on You!!!
Hopefully,You'll never get so fat that you get treated as badly
as he was!!
That sweet man hugged me with tears in his eyes.
I wished I could take his pain
and stomp it flat!!My own heart was broken to know
people can run around acting like
that and claim to LOVE GOD!!
fat people are not diseased and passing it around
like a plate of cookies.
Not all fat people dream of eating loaves of bread
and dozens of eggs/slabs of bacon.
Love all people and be loved..... emoticonSUSAN

    Never listen to society; it's a very sick one, by and large.

    Have you printed off any of the spark cards to give out? I have and am putting some in my wallet to carry with me when I go to the hospital and rehab. Sometimes when someone is overweight, they need the extra support that spark people is able to give them.
God bless, I am proud of you

Get up off of that thang and maybe you'll feel better!!

Friday, February 24, 2012

JB didnt know that song would become my mama's mantra.We had so much space to play outside that she just would not allow us to be lazy.Now, what I say to my bunch when they come to visit is,Hang up that phone and I will feel much better.They will pull out devices and talk/text/browse the web!AS SOON AS THEY SIT DOWN!!I went to visit my oldest dd the other day to talk,She spent the time on the phone with her boyfriend,so I left.My feelings were hurt and she thinks I was being childish??I will not take a call unless we are not talking.I find it rude and disrespectful to text in someone elses company.It says im too busy for you!Maybe im old fashioned.I asked my #3 dd out to lunch and she didnt even hardly talk to me.We went shopping and she bent over her cart and texted....I took her home in a huff and she asked was I mad?Yes,Im mad that all you care about is your phone.Yesterday my youngest dd didnt have 2 classes and I picked her up for lunch.What did she do?Ignored me the whole time!I drove her home and went out by myself and had a better time.I hatched a plan that from now on when they come to see me..I'll pull out my phone and call and text as many people as I can!Just to give them a dose of their own medicine....LOL...Life is too short.When someone you get limited time with comes around,Both of you PUT DOWN YOUR PHONES!!!Enjoy each other as much as possible.xoxoxoxo emoticonSUSAN

    Call me old-fashioned, but I think I'd walk away from anyone who did that to me. It's way beyond rude, and I don't care how many people do it. What's the difference between this and whipping out a book to read when you're in someone else's company?

Not to be tolerated... I just wouldn't have patience for that kind of behavior..

    Honey.. you are RIGHT!!!

I actually took my 16 year old to the Doctor - who was talking to her directly - and my DD pulled out her phone because she got a text!!! My eyes got big and round... but to the Doctor's credit, SHE LECTURED HER lol

I was glad she did.. because it came from someone besides Mom.

Stick to your guns... your time with them is precious. Texting/talking on the phone is NOT allowed when you are with them!!

    You aren't the rude one. People who don't give their attention to the person they're with are the inconsiderate ones. I have a friend who does that to me all the time. She comes to visit me and spends her time texting. I feel angry, hurt, and neglected. I also think about the times she doesn't answer my calls or texts until later. If she's glued to her phone, I'd think she would always answer or text me right back.

My husband doesn't understand texting at all. He says texting is to quickly tell someone he's running late or giving them information they need to store. He says a 3 minute phone call can say all the things that a it takes 20 minutes to text back and forth about. I'm a texter therefore I disagree. He has a good point though.
