Life Is a Journey
Saturday, July 06, 2013      12 comments

I look back over my life and find it incredible how my likes, dislikes, philosophy, wants, needs—well, everything has changed over the years. It reminds me so much of taking a trip. As you travel (on a trip) you have good roads with smooth ... Read more
Once In A Row
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      3 comments

Well, I made it yesterday! I was successful once in a row. Today I didn't do so well. I didn't post my food and therefore wasn't nearly aware of what I put in my mouth. But think about it: yesterday I met my goals. I was successful once in ... Read more
I Lie
Wednesday, January 02, 2013      5 comments

No, not to you. Not to my family. I lie to myself. You know, I tell myself that I didn't really overfill the 1/2 cup mark, I really drank a cup of water (even if the glass was only half full), I didn't really eat 7 saltines—they must have fallen... Read more

Thank You For Being a Friend
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      5 comments

Friendship isn't just for today—friendship can last a lifetime. Friends can be someone you've never met (like all of you, my SparkFriends) or they can be family (my daughter is my bestest friend ever!) or a neighbor, a fellow church member, or, ... Read more
I Choose to Refuse to Give Up!
Monday, October 22, 2012      10 comments

I haven't been on the SparkPeople site for some time. I blame it on health issues, recent widow-hood, too much to do and too little time, too much depression. Well, you get the picture. But in spite of all my excuses, I know I have no valid reas... Read more
Closing a Chapter of My Life
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      9 comments

I have been married 39 years as of last Christmas Day. My dear husband told people he married me on December 25th so he could remember when Christmas was! He was a wonderful man. I lost him on January 12, 2012. His funeral was yesterday, January... Read more
Why I Am Lucky
Saturday, March 19, 2011      4 comments

Well, really I'm not luckyóthat denotes that some mysterious something blesses me whether I deserve it or not. I am, however, extremely fortunate and am blessed with more things than I can count. Let's see. How about nature: the colors splashed ... Read more
Back on Track
Saturday, March 12, 2011      6 comments

I've been really discouraged this past week, both with personal issues and my weight loss program. I had decided I was going to quit taking my meds (including my insulin), quit going to doctors, and just let my life run its course. It didn't see... Read more
My Figure is 36-24-36
Thursday, December 30, 2010      3 comments

Oh, did I mention it's buried under about 100 pounds of fat? But it's there! My goal is to get to where it shows to the rest of the world! It is encouraging to me to know it is there, and by following SparkPeople's encouragement, posting to my T... Read more
New Beginnings
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      5 comments

I, like lots of others, look forward to the new year, new beginnings. It feels like a magic date, one that will let us start over. But then I remember that EVERY day is a new beginning. I don't have to wait for that one magical date to "start ov... Read more
They All Need Love
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      2 comments

Today I read a blog by BILLPHIL, and it brought to mind that I have a similar problem, but not so close to home. I have become "Grandma Nina" to a 10-year-old girl from a similar situation. She's not adopted, but living with another disfunctio... Read more
You Haven't Failed!
Sunday, November 14, 2010      2 comments

One of our Over 70 Team wrote a blog and seemed quite discouragedóbut she's keeping on working towards her goal! I'm really proud of her. I wanted to share what I wrote to her in a comment to her blog, because it applies to so very many of us. H... Read more
Happy Halloween???
Saturday, October 30, 2010      4 comments

I have not liked Halloween for many years and here's why. I'm not a grinch who stole Halloween. I just think it's not a good idea to teach kids to beg and then put anything in their mouths that strangers give them. I know parents often accompan... Read more
Am I A Judge?
Tuesday, October 19, 2010      3 comments

I took the Spark quick poll today "Be honest: Do you secretly (or openly) judge people based on their weight?" As I contemplated my answer, I was ashamed to admit I'm guilty of judging people for various reasons, and I know that is wrong. "Judge... Read more
