Starting Year 2
Well, I have to say I am disappointed with myself in some ways but happy that I have found SparkPeople. I have tried so many diets over the past 30 years and I always have success, but it has never been permanent. This time, I vowed to not los... Read more

Nothing exciting today but did attend a retirement party for a friend's husband this afternoon. Had a nice time and it was a nice distraction from all the commotion in our life!

While I am on this journey to try to lose weight, my grandson is in the fight for his life right now. As much as I want and need this to happen, it seems rather insignificant at the moment. In the blink of an eye, the decisions we make can aff... Read more

Trying, hoping, praying
I am trying to get back on track-things went off track for a few days but all I can do at this point is take aim at my goals and work to get back on track. I am doing my walking again and trying to make better food choices again-why is food suc... Read more
Trying to get back on track-how easy it is to lose our way when things don't go just right. Worry is such a big mind bender and throws off my game. Makes me not want to do a thing, just pull the covers up and stay in bed, but trying to power o... Read more
Still in limbo, but Jeremy is holding his own today and they are weaning him off the drugs so that he is more aware of his surroundings. He is still not off the breathing tube but they are hoping that by tomorrow he will be able to breathe on h... Read more
