    Ouch - and these people think they are helping? They need a flashing warning sign - diet saboteurs!

WE believe in you! You can do whatever it takes to get to your goals and don't let the scale or anyone else get you off track.

I've been having scale woes too, bought a new scale and it weighs higher than the dr office, another ouch! So haven't decided if I'm keeping it but I did go down 3 lbs so that was encouraging.

Keep up the great work and NEVER NEVER QUIT! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I gave my best input over on the thread you started, but here you are turning the corner on disappointment and your fire has ignited!


I'm a big believer in messages from God, but I think He's sending you "to school" on this one....look for the lesson.

Today like any other day I got up and moved like I was on a mission!Sundays are always the day we sit by the garden.Watching the dog sniff out crickets and the trees turning green!Today we went to get some flowers from the nursery and ate lunch because my hubby's been working alot and today was his only day off.I told him we could just take a walk but,he said he wanted to buy flowers so I can enjoy them now not,when i'm gone!!SWEEET!I love him more everyday!!happy sunday sp hugs!

gnats,flies,wasps pests in general drive me nuts!My 16 year old would stay out
side for hours when she was little and now?She's afraid of a bug or spider and the wind messes up her hair!!We are Besties most of the time but,she is almost 17 and has her own life and she DOES make time for me alot!Every Monday she calls me at lunch and asks How much weight have you lost???One pound I say WOOHOO! GO MOMMY she replies.If I say one negative thing I get the STANK EYE!!She has one more year of school before she goes to college and I am going to be sad for me but happy she's growing up.Hugs!happy Saturday sp

DUSTYGIRL25 3/20/2011 2:31PM sweet. (not the bugs though) Your daughter sounds great and I'm sure you've raised her perfectly. Your bond with her will always be there no matter what. Even through those college years.

    Sounds like a great relationship, love the way she keeps you positive.

My boys are 23 and 25 this year and its very hard to treat them as individual young men and not my baby boys - but when you build a strong relationship when they are young I promise you, it comes back tenfold later on - the love and protection they give back brings a smile a mile wide!

Mind you, as for the creepie crawlies.......... I'm with your Daughter on that one lol !

we were taught

Friday, March 18, 2011

When I was growing up my mother and father could barely scrape by.We ate the most filling food that could satisfy 7 people.My parents were not concerned with a balanced diet,as long as the meal kept us happy from one meal to the next!Beans,potatoes,rice,turnips,sweet potatoes,corn..etc!If we got hungry in between a meal we ate peaches,apples,berries or walnuts(off the trees)there was not a ready snack available.We were lucky to get what we got,very little meat and lots of fish that we caught.We hunted for rabbit,deer,squirrel.We laugh about it now but we were not taught the importance of eating healthy.My husband was the same way.We taught what we learned and now my children are following suit.But i am trying with class and not being preachy or holier than thou about it.It is hard not to be judgemental when i see them horking down sugar and fat laden food.I do however let them know it can and will hurt them in the long run at times...hugs!

    I think the best way to teach is by example. As long as you are trying to eat healthy and exercise is shows others that you care about yourself and about your body.
Hopefully others will take notice and follow your lead. Wouldn't it be nice if your family wanted to have fun and get healthy along with you. Just keep encourging all around you and let them make the right decision. emoticon

    I agree. When people keep in touch with where food comes from, their food sense is healthier.

grandchildren are here

Thursday, March 17, 2011

I love my granchildren dont get me wrong but,they are a handfull!!!Theres not enough of me to go around!They grow faster than my children did...or so it seems.The youngest is 4 and she does NOT want to share me at all. Im her Grammy.She is the Energizer bunny on caffeine!One minute shes laughing the next she's crying.I have 8 and i dont get to see my second daughters kids at all
long story short,she thinks i neglected her growing up and until she's ready she cant be around any of us.I guess you have to respect thier wishes at times.One day in the future she will come to understand!Finances are not always the best and her kids will grow up and be angry like her...hopefully not!In the meantime i will not keep worrying about it any longer like she hopes. happy thursday sp!hugs!

    Oh, I know what you mean. My own daughter has her issues along the same line. Apparently we were complete idiots when we raised them. emoticon Oh well, I don't worry about it. I love my grandkids but sometimes it's just not worth the headaches I have to go through to see them.
Thanks goodness you still get to spend time with some, and as you said, hopefully she will come around soon.
