Sunny Funny Saturday
Another day to get it right
My path here as been bright.
And although I've done pretty well
Not good enough to call "swell."
I've got 20 more to go, I say,
So here it is - another day
To put on a smile and walk the walk
So I won... Read more
Loss, Grief and Letting Go
For past three years eight loved ones died
And my sadness was something I've tried to hide.
Now three more are very ill
And so much of this grief is with me still.
But with SP I've learned to eat and drink
A healthy way that makes m... Read more
New Walking Shoes
Rockin and rollin in my new shoes
Is this exercise, or just the blues?
Feel like I'm 6 feet in the air
And walking like a drunk w/o a care.
How to adjust to these funky new shoes
Or is it just more money I blew
On yet another workout... Read more
Jury Still Out on New Athletic Shoes

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

To a total boo hoo.
To lose more weight

No matter ... Read more
To all of those who gave their lives
At home or far away,
You are treasured and remembered
Each and every day.
Happy Memorial Day.

Rhyming My Weigh With Water
Water, to me, is as needed as air.
I drink and I drink with not even a care
About soft drinks or coffee, as far as I see
There's nothing like water - as good as can be!... Read more
In thinking of my Uncle Sal,
He was my uncle, was my pal.
At 16 he signed his name
And then a Navyman became.
Grandma cried to see her son -
A child whose life had just begun
Go to fight in the Korean War,
But Uncle Sal would hear ... Read more
Rhyming My Weigh Through Stress #4
Earthquakes abound each and every day,
Crime rises nearby in so many ways.
Drivers make their own rules as they drive,
Gosh, I'm surprised I'm even alive!
The cortisol from this stress makes me fat,
So what is it I can do with all t... Read more
Rhyming My Weigh to a Healthier Me #3
Myhormones raged beyond control
And turned me into a fatty mole.

And ignored it for a little while,
But... Read more

For three years now I've had to cry
For nine dear ones who went and died.
My response - besides the tears -
You guessed it, lots of cheers
Through food that made me feel so yucky
But now I am much better and feeling lucky.
To hav... Read more
Rhyming My Way Through Weight Loss #1
I went out-of-town, and was in a fright
Of all of the junk food that would be in sight.

Alas, I sometimes amaze myself too
As I chose a day-lon... Read more

To 14-Day Cleanse.. Or Not. That is the Plateau-Breaking Question! Any Advice?
I found a Spark suggestion area for plateaus from a sparker who said she broke her plateau with a 14-day cleanse. She was nice enough to send me the recipe and I've been debating whether to give this a try.
Yes, it worked great for her. A... Read more
My Plateau Done Me Wrong
Yes, it's a new C & W song I'm writing. It's a sad ballad, but take heart, it ends on a happy note - one of hope. Maybe.
