You are all so wonderful and faithful, loyal friends. I am so sorry I have been out of commission. First my computer went on the fritz and they closed the public library that is close to me, so I didn't even have access to one there. I finally got the computer working, and thought I was on my way back to my Spark World, and then my 85 year old step-mom, who also has Alzhiemer's fell and fractured her ...

When I took it over, it was not very active. I tried for almost a year to revive it and breathe new life into it, to no avail. I changed the name of the team, the mantra of the team. I started new challenges, and team goals, and new threads, to no avail. I am the type of person that if you say I can't do something, I Will show you that I CAN. ...

I will work in the yard, mowing and planting and caring for my herbs and veggies, so that they will produce and care for me. Then I will go for a swim, and do some water aerobics. I will eat properly and purely. No more garbage in my body. I have had too many years of refined processed foods and it's time to get back to natural, sensible living, eating, and healin...

Mon, 18 May 2009 21:21:49 EST An Evening Out With Friends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1256428 Saturday evening I went with my boyfriend, his cousin, and aunt and uncle who are about our age to an arena football game. I was kind of worried about the stairs and seating, but since I lost 62 pounds I figured "Why not?", and went with a positive attitude.When we got there the parking was four blocks away and the walk to the arena was at an uphill slope. That was fine I walked it without getting winded and I was keeping up with the others. My thought was "more steps on the pedometer", 5 mon...
