In one of the caves he found a <BR> canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had <BR> rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn't look <BR> like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave <BR> with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls <BR> one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could. <BR> <BR> He thought little ab...

HELLO <BR> <BR> When I was a young boy, my father had one of the first telephones in our <BR> neighborhood.. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The <BR> shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the <BR> telephone, ... Fri, 4 Mar 2011 01:51:50 EST 1/2 a pound lose! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3961538 So last Friday I went to see my dietitian and weighed-in. I was really hoping to make my 4lb. loss but I was about 3 1/2 lbs shy. I was a little disappointed in myself because I knew I didn't strive hard enough to my 4lb. loss goal. But the great news is I DIDN'T GAIN, YAY!!!! So here is a new week, in fact, I don't weigh-in until Feb. 4th. So I will just strive a little harder this time and be more committed to myself. <BR> <BR> Wed, 26 Jan 2011 00:49:23 EST Coming to the end of Week 1! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3943815 So tomorrow I go to weigh-in with my dietitian. I'm striving for 4lbs. a week lost...i'll see how I have done and report it here. I know I have slipped up on my calorie intake because I'm still trying to figure out how to work the my nutrition page. However, I am getting better at it. <BR> <BR> I feel good about one thing and that is I have been growing a deeper desire to better myself. I wake up and look forward to what exercise I am going to do for the day. I don't want to get into a bori... Thu, 20 Jan 2011 11:08:53 EST My First Blog! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3938333 Well today is the beginning of a new fresh start. I know I have been a Sparks member for a while now but have yet to become committed. I am so tired of this yo-yo life with my weight. As of December 2010 I began to see a nutritionist. I weighed-in with her at 244lbs.. I thought to myself at the site of the scale that I was only fooling and hurting myself if I thought I wasn't in trouble. So just as the majority of the population does at the beginning of the new year I decided I was going to m... Tue, 18 Jan 2011 18:58:47 EST
