It has been a week now since I renewed my commitment to tracking my nutrition. It feels good again. Although when I sneaked a look at the scale this morning, I had stayed the same, I know I am doing the right thing, and the tracker is giving m... Read more
Another Good Day of Tracking!
It feels so good to be back tracking my nutrition. I had gotten away from it for a while, and could sure tell the difference. Although I was tracking manually, I know that I was forgetting some of the "spur of the moment" grazing I was doing.

Learning To Knit ~~ Maybe!

"I was sure I could do it." -Sully

I Can and Will Do Better!
It has been nine months since I came to Sparkpeople. I did just great for the most part until about 2 months ago. Then I started yo-yoing and not doing so well. I exercise religiously two hours per day, try to eat proper portions, and drink a... Read more
An Unbelievable Story! But True!

How The Lord Kept Me From Harm...
One early morning about four years ago, my granddaughter, who lived with me and DH at the time, needed a ride to work as her car would not start. It was still dark out, and because of my cataracts, I did not like to drive in the dark as I did n... Read more
My Book For This Week
The book I read this week was first a movie, which most probably all have seen but me. The name of the book is "Fireproof" and was novelized after the movie. The screenplay for the movie was written by the members of a small church in Albany, ... Read more
Eve ~ What Were You Thinking?
In reading my daily devotion, I was reminded once again that "we have a nature as a human being to feel an attraction to the forbidden". But the blame for what Eve suffered as a result of that was not anyone's fault but her own! Not only di... Read more
Taking A Time Out!
It came to me one day this past week that I was spending too much time on my team chat thread. I had become obsessed with checking in every few minutes so I could keep up with the many posts. I love this team and like to know what everyone is ... Read more
Left-Handed In A Right-Handed World
Guess the title gives it away that I am lefthanded. The first time I recall being aware that made me different was in first grade at school. My teacher hit my hand repeatedly with a yardstick trying to make me use my right hand. I was so fru... Read more

The Rewards of Being A Sparkperson
On May 2, 2008, I joined Sparkpeople as a way to lose weight and improve my health. Having recently lost my husband of 30 years and my dear 92 year old mother, I was going no place and not doing anything for myself.
I began to lose weight ... Read more

As you always were in life,
You went without stri... Read more
