Missnuggy, What a great intro. You so remind me of my grandmother. She was born in 1885 in Sicily and her being Italian meant we had a super huge garden. We always ate fresh veggies and canned almost anything you can imagine. (tho we did not do meat butchering) Dad tried once with chickens, but no one would eat it ! ! !
Congrat's on being a Great Grandmother...That I will never see as our children started their families rather late. Your grandson is so lucky to have such a wonderful grandmother....
Can't wait to start sharing some of your canning secrets..
OXOX
Congrat's on your current weight loss ! ! ! That's so AWESOME ! ! !

Why "Thank You". Oh yea, I know lots of stories, I don't have to write them though. They are my life. One of the latest topics in my life is that I became a Great Grandmother to an angel baby Mabel. My sweet Grandson Jeff is the Daddy. Jeff is the apple of my eye. I always tell Jeff that he is my favorite Grandson and then he reminds me that he is my only Grandson and then I tell him that I'm pretty sure he would be my favorite Grandson even if I had more than him. I do hope we can help inspire eachother, I so want to loose the rest of my weight. The honeymoon is over though and I am finding it more difficult to stay focused, I have not started walking seriously which I MUST do. My mini goal is five pounds a month and I can do that, I can do that by eating 1400 calories a day, but that is EVERY day. That's the hard part. Last night we were invited to a dinner, a delicious, home cooked dinner, home made rolls.........on and on and on. The social life is my downfall. At least I am out of the X's( I mean 1X-2X-3X), I now wear and extra large top and a 20 petite bottom and they are rooms. Just not quite ready to go down another size. You know what is wonderful about this SPARK thing? It's that we can say these things to eachother. It was very nice hearing from you, I hope to hear from you again. lol Missnuggy

MY PERSONAL MESSAGE TO EVERYONE IS TO LIVE, LAUGH AND LOVE AND DON'T FORGET TO DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU.

Welcome Miss Snuggy,

Wow! That's an AMAZING story! You have so much knowledge and stories you can share. How neat! Don't be surprised if you get bombarded with questions. (LOL)

Congratulations on your wgt. loss. I'm sure you'll get the balance off.

My name is Angela. I've been w/SP since 2007. I really only needed to lose about 30 lbs. initially. I lost 15, kept it off for a long time, and eventually it crept back on and now I'm back at jump street. I set my realistic goal of losing the 30 lbs by the time I turned 50 y/o. Which is this year. So, I went from an easy goal of losing 30 lbs in 5 years, to wanting to try to lose it this year. Still obtainable, but no longer easy. (sigh) I'd like to lose it by August, but you know, I'll just be happy if I lost as much as I could to get close by years end.

Hopefully, we all can encourage each other. Not only in the canning/freezing area, but with our wgt. loss and health goals.

Have a great day!

I have been canning and freezing since 1958, that doesn't make me an expert but I have certainly been thru the school of hard canning and freezing knocks. I was born and raised on a dairy farm, we raised all of our own food. We butchered our own meat, and when I was very young we did not have a freezer. There was a "locker" in town and we rented a drawer, then once a week when my Mother did the shopping it was our last stop on the way home to bring home a weeks supply from the locker, the freezer in our refrigerator was small so we would keep a couple of days stash in the refrigerator and the rest in the freezer. I don't remember what year we got our first home freezer but it was a big deal. No wonder my Grandchildren think I came over on the Mayflower. I am still gardening and canning. I have a small freezer but I don't use it to put my foods by in it. I have turnips, radishes, kohlrabi and lettuce coming up now. They will be finished by the time I will put out my tomatoes and a few other vegetables. I container garden due to the flexibility of some parts of my body. I have 55 gallon drums cut in half, drilled holes near the bottom for drainage, works great! I really like SPARK, I started loosing weight before I discovered SPARK but since it has really been a great help. I am 70 years young and in good health, I would like to help myself stay as healthy as I can. I have lost 70 pounds and I am going to loose 70 more. My goal date is June 2012 and that is a realistic date to strive for my goal. I welcome any questions or replies. lol Missnuggy
