"If you could change something in your life, and it would affect everything that has happened to you, good or bad. What would you change?"
I would have NOT sold our house in the country 13 years ago, even though it was just 3 acres, we built 75% of it ourselves. The affect would be good as we're wanting to move to a place with some land but it's not going well.

emoticon If you could learn something new, what would it be and why?

"Where is everyone?" I can only answer for myself, I had a family member, my three-year old great-niece, recently diagnosed with Leukemia and was dealing with that. I have put things in perspective and am dealing with what I can. The rest, well I am leaving that to God.

If you could change something in your life, and it would affect everything that has happened to you, good or bad. What would you change?

I think I am an optimist, some may say otherwise, but I am that person that is always looking at all my options and the one that keeps saying "It will all work out", "look on the bright side", and refuses to give up! Good question.

My question is simple: Where is everyone? What is keeping you away from SP or the team?

What do you like about Sparkpeople? - Finding out that there are other people out there with my issues and finding out how they deal with with their issues. To see if I can incorporate their strategies with mine.

Q - Are you a optimist or a pessimist? Glass half full or half empty?

Okay so I will share my experience. Normally if we eat at McDonalds I eat from the $1.00 menu and have a mcchicken. This one day we were out an about and I was needing to eat, being diabetic and all. So we went and I decided I really wanted something different. I had been seeing commercials about the wraps and thought "I'm gonna try one". So I chose the chicken bacon wrap and omg I was in love at first bite. Now I will admit I am not a fan of tomato, I like them cooked, not raw, I know weird eh? So I did take off the tomato. It was chuck full of lettuce and chicken, I slice of bacon and light on the cheese and ranch dressing, just right. It was tasty and very satisfying so if you haven't tried one yet, I encourage you to and share what you thought.

Question? What exercise did you do today?

Do you ever use Fitness DVD's? If so, what is a favorite of yours?
Not real often. My exercise is often walking the mall or the neighborhood. The only 2 dvds I do use are Beginning intro to Zumba emoticon and a very beginners yoga dvd. emoticon I like the yoga best because it is easier to modify for my physical limitations.

Do you have any pets?

Do you weigh and measure your servings? -- No not usually... once in a while I get pro-active that way.. but most the time, I use the generalized 1 serving big Kitchen spoon is a 1cup, and 1 standard (came with my silverware) serving spoon is 1/2 cup... to get the amounts for my tracking.

Question: Do you track your steps? If so, how are you doing? If not, what do you do for exercise?

My Mother's Day was simple and yet divine. No gifts, cards, flowers, but lots of love. My oldest daughter whom I hadn't seen in a while due to her busy lifestyle stopped by and surprised me. My hubby and youngest daughter baked me an angel food cake and made me a wonderful dinner of Alaskan Pollock and baked potato, homemade coleslaw to name a few.

Question? Do you weigh and measure your servings?

: What do you do when struggling with a temptation for a food? Do you immediately find something else to take your mind off it, do you tell yourself, ah what the heck its just one treat, do you give yourself permission and have just the right size portion and track it into your day? How do you handle it?

ANSWER: it really depends on the day. Most days I try to substitute. Instead of ice cream I make a smoothie. I grab some grapes or an orange. crunchy Sweet I grab an apple, salty an alvacado (cuz I salt it) or egg.
other days I admit I just give in. even when I do give in. ..I try to make sure I grab a bowl instead of the whole bag.

QUESTION: What is currently your favorite joke?

What is the most important change you have made on your journey?
my most important change had been not letting the "bad" days stop me. I had come close to just being. Not moving much not doing things that benefit me cuz of pain. I now make an effort to get moving and to go with my family when I can.

Question: do you emoticon use Android or i- apps, if so do you check in with Spark via your phone? emoticon

Okay I will answer this one too I guess.......

My favorite time of year is the Fall. The temperatures are nice in the 60's and 70's usually here, the leaves are colorful and I love decorating, making pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, and anticipating the holidays that follow. Usually I am thinking of Christmas and will begin shopping and hiding it away before the busy holiday season begins. I learned when I was in retail years ago that after Halloween the stores begin raising prices and they usually don't come down until around the first of Feb. So the earlier we start the more we safe, and then when everyone is running around trying to find that gift we can enjoy the sights and sounds of the holidays and not have to fight the crowds.

My question: What is the most important change you have made on your journey?

When do you get up?
I get up at 5:30a to get my son off to school on the bus by 6:30a. Then I usually go back to bed... sometimes for just a couple hours... til about 10a other times until 12N or 2p... depending on how much sleep I had gotten the day before.

yes! In College we had a photo scavenger hunt.... and one thing on the list was to take a pic with us and a police officer..... we drove for miles back and forth around town looking for one. we gave up and went to the McD to get a pic with Ronald [fake statue on a bench]..... and going through the drive through was a police offier! Sooooo all things being said, and we being college students started yelling at the officer @ the drive thru window while others were running out the door to stand in front of the officer's car.... backed up drive thru a moment. as we all piled on the car for the photo op.... and the officer held the McD's cup up making one pic with 2 of the items needed.

where are your children located? state? near you?

To get the heck out of this place we live in and back into a home of our own and we are doing it yet this month.

Have you ever had a funny encounter with a police officer?

Do you usually go out for New Year's Eve?
No we usually stay home, and enjoy the peace and quiet -- watch a movie, and let the kiddos stay up late too....


What is most favorite of all your "Gifts" from Christmas (or other holiday you celebrate) this year?

Actually, I write lyrics - both for myself and other song writers.

Have you ever had anything published?

Do you have a favorite Website you use? If so, what is it, and what do you enjoy about it?!?!

Yes, I use crochetcentral.com and knitcentral.com for wonderful free patterns. Right now I'm making warm hats and scarves to donate. It's fun to learn new stitches from these free patterns.

Have you ever been stranded on a dark road in the middle of the night when your car broke down?

YES!! I used to live in the middle of no where, CA, & OKLA. It was 30 min to any major shopping store.. or wal-mart. Thankfully I had cell phones, and could call someone... but it is not fun...

Answer: I am starting to give up all desserts as I have discovered Yoplait Greek yogurt. It is fat free and has 3X the protein of regular yogurt and the taste is incredible. Even dh is eating it. It's not cheap but so much better for me than those cakes and pies.

Question1 - have you ever felt like giving up on your weight loss efforts?

Question2 - Have you ever said something so stupid it even made you laugh?

Answer 1: Quite often, as my scales stay the same.... but then again, I figure if I am doing most things right, I will lose weight when my body is ready!!

Answer 2: All the time!! I seem to always be saying *something* that makes people go HUH?!?! Then I realize what I said, chuckle about it... and correct it and go on.... My brain Very OFTEN mixes words to create new words -- such as shhhhhhog (frog shoes -- my daughters slippers with frogs faces on them...) *shaking head* but that's ok.... it is part of what makes me me....

Question: Have you ever thought about cutting back on any one food? If so, what and why??

I have! It was a recipe for Andouille sausage and kale soup. It was very spicy but great!

Yes, I bought a pair of Danskin Tennis Shoes from Walmart. They were cheap and I first thought well you get what you pay for, but turns out was the best bargain I have found in a while. Not only do they give my feet great support but they are so comfortable. Going to go back and buy another pair just to have for a back-up :)

My question: have you tried a new recipe lately? And if so what was it?

I found a recipe today that was for a sugar cookie and it is made using no eggs, or any milk. When done, they taste like a soft homemade cinnamon roll, is now a family favorite. I posted it today in SparkRecipes titled Sugar Cookies, no egg no milk.
