My Internal Spark
I just read the blog entry "My Internal Spark." I should have been encouraged and embolden by it, but it just got me thinking. I really don't have an internal spark building a huge fire inside me. I'm not sure I even have a small spark.

Motivation is something I lack. I've lost 100 pounds and my body seems to like the weight it's at. I don't! But I don't have enough motivation to lose more. The eating is not a problem, it's the exercise.
I read this quote this a.m. on Spa... Read more
Breaking Another Rule
I keep reading that U need to concentrate on eating and put everything else aside. Sorry, can't do it. I either read a book or work on the computer while eating.
If I concentrate on my food, texture and taste, etc., I'll want more and keep e... Read more
I Didn't Quit
I joined SP a year ago and met a lot of people. And then they started disappearing. I think weight gain might have had something to do with it. When people start eating unhealthy foods, stop exercising, and gain weight, they feel guilty.

Who Worry? Me?
I read something interesting today. A woman said, "The worst things in my life never happened!" Think about it. We worry about everything and usually nothing happens. Our worrying about tomorrow takes the happiness out of today. Another qu... Read more
Men In Black
Call me weird. I don't watch much t.v. and I don't like reality t.v. However, there are several shows I like that feature men (and women) in black: The Exterminator, Dog, the Bounty hunter, and Repo. I also like Cops and I guess they're in b... Read more

One simple rule: Wash everything first before U put it in Ur mouth. Everything! Meat, poultry, fruits, and veggies will hold up. Pies, cakes, cookies, etc. won't. Unless Ur into mushy desserts!... Read more
Tonight I made "Dump" soup. I call it that because I start with low-sodium broth, heat it up, and then dump all my leftovers in it. Each time U make it, it'll taste different. And if U watch what U cook all week, it won't be high in calories... Read more
My DH and I went to dinner tonight. I observed the couple across from us--I'm a horrible people watcher! The man was in his late 70s and the girl was in her 30s. They shared an appetizer with bread, shared a steak dinner, shared the dessert, ... Read more
Gas vrs. Service
Have U ever tried to explain the difference between a gas station and service station to an under-16-year-old? My 13-year-old grandson cannot believe that we used to have service stations. I explained how we drove in, sat in the car, and wait... Read more
The other day I went to the grocery store just to get an avocado. I had been thinking for some time about eating something yummy and gooey--like an eclair. This is unusual because I don't eat that kind of thing. I'm not too into desserts and ... Read more
Another Expert Debunked
I recently blogged that experts don't know everthing. I saw another "study" which doesn't pan out in my family.
It said that babies born to mothers who gained a lot of weight or were not breast fed would more than likely grow up to be obese c... Read more
I'm so tired of people needing noise everywhere: in the house, in the car, in stores, in malls, etc.
Even if it's quiet in my car, someone will come alongside and have their "music" so loud it rocks my car.
And if I were ever in a store whe... Read more
