Have been too lax over the past 4 months and not I am ready to start of the New year Right. I will be starting fresh with Sparks Jan. 1, 2009. Have not done as bad as I thought only gained about 1/2 of what I had lost but I want to start fresh in Jan. so I will be taking my weight back to now and not counting previously lost weight so I will be able to better track progress.

I am 58 years old and have many changes in my life in the last 7 years. I lost my husband in 2000 and remarried in 2002, gained 10 grand kids (which I have always wanted but had given up hope on) moved to a small town in the panhandle of Oklahoma, started new job and had to make new friends. Also had my thyroid removed in 2001. I am now ready to make life changes of my choosing to better my health and help me enjoy my new life.

"It's better to do just a tiny bit consistently than a whole bunch in a hit or miss fashion" MEGAERA0529 This is a quote that I think it will help a lot.

"Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance." - Samuel Johnson

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never fly!

    HI. Long time no talk. I wasn't as lucky as you. I didn't have any luck with Guess it wasn't meant to be. But there has to be someone out there for me. Have a Happy Thanksgiving

    Hi again. I received your note. So works. Maybe I should check that out. Were you nervious about placing an ad? I am. Was he in your area? I haven't dated for a long time and I really don't know what to do. I have a bad habit of being really quiet until I know you. Or if you put me in a crowd-I clam up then too. Any suggestions? I would really like to find someone.

    Please keep in touch.

    Thank you for adding me as a friend. emoticon

    I wish you a lot of healthy eating and good exercise to achieve your goal.

    I want to know how you found a husband. I'm so sick and tired of being alone. I haven't dated anyone in 7-10 years. Lost count. I sure would like to meet someone. I have my dogs for company but that's it. I don't know where to even meet people at. emoticon

    Welcome back. Again thank you for adding me as a friend.

    PS: Grandchildern they are awesome. I have 6- (5 boys and 1 girl)
    And I still have one son who hasn't married or has children. I keep telling him to hurry up. He's 30 and in Germany working on his PhD. He is my middle boy. Both the younger and older sibling got married young and had kids. (around 21 or so)
