Feeding at the Lord's table

Sunday, January 11, 2015      3 comments

Every now and then I need to take out my "spiritual pantry" to help myself refocus. Spending time in the Word, with the Word. I like to remind myself to "seek first the kingdom of God..." And all the rest will be added. I was reading the ... Read more

read over

I re-read my spinning my wheels profile paragraph that I updated in November 2011, after being on SP for 4 1/2 years. I had to laugh at myself when I read the part that maybe I was a little smarter. I am nearly two years older and feel dumbe... Read more

Wanted to upload a photo but I don't have that option on my phone. Maybe to my page. Omg this place is gorgeous. I can't believe how nice this room is and the price for Hawaii residents is reasonable. Nope. Couldn't figure out how. Guess I'll ... Read more

I almost took it for granted. Three years ago I visited Florida and went to the Universal theme parks. I could not ride some of the rides because of my size. They have these "try" areas outside the ride and last time I was excluded because I c... Read more

So the accolades are over and we drove up to Davenport where we will be for the next 10 days. I plan to do a fair amount of walking and some time at the pool. Eating is not awful but certainly not on full program.... Read more

Yes, I am still on my daily exercise streak and I will have completed a full 1/2 year by the end of next week! I would not have thought this were possible when I started. I am feeling like a winner on so many levels. I can share now that the... Read more

I have just completed 20 weeks of daily exercise. (minimum 10 minutes a day). Some days were easier than others. On days I really did not feel like doing it I talked myself into doing one of coach Nicole's seated videos. Those have been a Gods... Read more

Sunday, April 14, 2013      3 comments

After working at weight loss most of my adult life I have figured out that a goal space is much more important than reaching a goal weight. For me, the goal space is making the right choices all day. Right portions, healthy foods, exercising c... Read more

all or nothing- what's that?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013      3 comments

Funny, I don't remember when it changed, but I have no recent memory of having the all or nothing attitude. I can't remember the last time I told myself I should go on a spree since I already blew it. I do remember that I used to have that atti... Read more
