Six Years With Sparkpeople
Friday, April 26, 2013      5 comments

I reached my goal six years ago and can hardly believe I've stayed slim, fit and healthy this long and haven't gone back to the yo-yo- dieting I did for most of my previous years. Once I found Sparkpeople and faithfully logged everything I ate ... Read more

In the past week, I've finally managed to get off the 1 lb. over my goal which hung on after I had lost 3 lbs. I had put on a few weeks ago. As I tried to find out why this pesky little one pound would not go, I realized that my calories in and... Read more
Mission Accomplished

Today is Monday, the day I always "started my diet" in the past. Since I've been maintaining with Sparkpeople for 5 1/2 years now I don't "diet" any more. I just keep track of calories and exercise on Sparkpeople and try to keep up a healthy ... Read more

Do You Live to Eat or Eat to Live?
Sunday, October 07, 2012      4 comments

My grandmother, a little lady I looked up to, used to say, "Some people live to eat. I don't. I eat to live." As a little girl, I didn't understand what she was saying. Now that I've lived even longer than she did, I agree with her. I'll adm... Read more

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      6 comments

I've been proud of myself for walking briskly 15 min. every day, doing 1/2 hour of yoga each morning and Jazzercising 3 days a week for one hour each day. However, I'm learning a little more humility, because as I started my walk on Monday, I a... Read more
Double Whammy
Saturday, July 28, 2012      6 comments

This week I did back to back Jazzercise classes, one hour from 8:15-9:15 and another hour from 9:30-10:30. By getting in two classes in one day, I earned a new pretty coral-colored tank top to keep me cool this summer or as the poster at the J... Read more

Today I got to hold my first great-granddaughter, named after me and born Dec. 1. What an amazing experience! She is so beautiful with lots of black hair and so precious in my arms. I have to leave to go back home tomorrow, but I'll always re... Read more

My husband and I have just moved from the house we built and lived in for 22 years to a "Senior Living Village" and are starting a new life here among other people who are in their senior years as we are (he's 83 and I'm 80). We felt it was ... Read more
