Fried Fair Food
Wednesday, October 28, 2009      1 comments

I just read an article about fair food. Evidently, Texas is the home or beginning of fried foods. They actually now have fried butter! How gross! Anyway, I have been able to resist the fair's fried foods: fried coke, fried smores, fried Ore... Read more
Giving, not receiving
Tuesday, October 27, 2009      5 comments

Giving IS a lot more fun than receiving. Our DIL just graduated from nursing school and is taking a two week break. She has been working as a nurse's assistant for 9 years. The past 2 1/2 years she has worked, gone to school, been a wife, and... Read more
Soothing bath

We like to reward ourselves for a job well done--losing weight, drinking water, exercising, a pound lost. But our rewards don't have to be big. We don't need to buy something new or eat a forbidden food, or take a vacation. A reward can be as... Read more

No I'm not lucky. I've never won money gambling or on a lottery ticket. That's why I don't gamble or buy tickets. Why am I writing this? Because I have won 100 Spark Points three days in a row on the Big Spin Wheel. But, whenever I spin, I... Read more
100 points
Saturday, October 24, 2009      5 comments

My daily goal is 100 Spark Points each day. So I do everything on the Spark Point page possible. I don't cheat, I read everything there is to read. I go through my Spark mail and everything else. If at the end, I still need points, I add ext... Read more
Pop Tarts
Friday, October 23, 2009      8 comments

My grandson gave me a new blog. He said, Pop Tarts. Could be because he was eating one. I told him I was tired of food because that's all he ever gives me. He said it was all he thinks about. Anyway, I detest Pop Tarts. They are tasteless.... Read more
Grandson gripe
Thursday, October 22, 2009      2 comments

When I can't think of anything to blog about, I ask my grandson for an idea. He's given me some good ones. Today on the way to school, I asked him for an idea. He said, "grandson not feeling good." This is not unusual. He used to say that a... Read more
Driver's License Weight
Wednesday, October 21, 2009      11 comments

Well, I'm finally at my driver's license weight! When I weighed close to 300 pounds, I had 250 on my license. After I got under 250, I changed it to 200. I'm am finally "legal." I'm at 200 pounds (and still going down). Is it time to change... Read more
Fast Food
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      6 comments

I've pretty much given up on fast food. I made a pact that if I wanted fast food, I would have to walk to get it. I have Rally's, McDs, Burger King, Taco Bell, and Wendy's about a mile walk. I haven't walked to any of them yet so I haven't ha... Read more
Turbo Atkins update
Monday, October 19, 2009      2 comments

I've done the Turbo Atkins for 2 days and have lost 5 pounds. Of course, I had gained those 5 pounds during 5 days of naughtiness. I'm now where I started from. I'm doing great and except for the first day of the "runs," I'm feeling energetic... Read more
Group Walking
Saturday, October 17, 2009      7 comments

I did a first today. I met other people in my area and we walked for 45 minutes. That's a first for me. I have never gone into a new environment by myself and I've never walked with anyone else. I'm not social and this was very hard for me. ... Read more
Turbo Atkins
Friday, October 16, 2009      8 comments

Before you yell "NO!" I want you to know that I'm very aware of the Atkins Diet. That's the only way my DH will eat. He's been on it forever and my father was on it 40 years ago before it was a fad. My DH is overweight but likes the Atkins di... Read more
Tongue in cheek
Thursday, October 15, 2009      2 comments

My blog yesterday was written sort of tongue in cheek. But, people took me seriously and wrote back worried and with lots of info. And you know, I guess I needed it. All the info I got was useful. At first, I was upset that people took it se... Read more
Relevance of Spark People
Wednesday, October 14, 2009      7 comments

My computer crashed about 5 days ago and I have been bereft. I just got a new one today. However, the previous 5 days without SP has been horrid. I have no cotrol. Since I couldn't (well, I guess I could have) track points, it meant I didn't... Read more
Got fat eating crap
Thursday, October 08, 2009      4 comments

I use to work for my father. The business was way out in the country and I was usually the only one in the office. All my work was done by 11:00 and the rest of the day was for answering telephones. I was all alone and lonely. My father used... Read more
