Maintaining on the sliding scale and beyond. Life has given me enough endless challenges! I need to keep learning how to cope with them, as this is life! No one said it would be easy or fair. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. Retirement has brought me to the time in my life that I’m the healthiest I have ever been.
my favorite challenge is eating one pound of veggies a day. Half cooked and half raw.

Spring 5% Challenge (Weight Warrior)
Think about Week 1:
1. Am I satisfied with my finish?
2. Did I participate to the best of my ability? Yes
3. Did I read and take advantage of the fun activities my Leaders work hard to provide for me? Yes
4. Did I read a blog, visit a page or send a Goodie to someone on my team? Yes
5. How can I improve during Week 2, and 3, and ... until final weigh-in?

    emoticon emoticon emoticon How God Created Mother emoticon emoticon emoticon
    God took the fragrance of a flower, the majesty of a tree.
    The gentleness of morning dew, the calm of a quiet sea.
    The beauty of a twilight hour, the soul of a starry night,
    The laughter of a rippling brook, the grace of a bird in flight,
    Then God fashioned from these things, a creation like no other.
    And when his masterpiece was through, He called it simply...MOTHER
    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    ~~**~~Beautiful Quotes About Mother's~~**~~
    "A Mother is a person seeing there is only 4 pieces of pie
    for five people, promptly announces that she never did care for pie."
    ~~~"God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made Mothers"~~~
    "If I had a flower for each time I thought of My Mother, I could walk in my garden forever"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "You never appreciate all of the things your Mother did for you until you find yourself doing the same things for your kids"
    ~~~~ "There should be more then one day to celebrate the women who raised us."~~~~
    "Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a Mother."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "The most beautiful necklace a Mother can wear is not gold or gem, but her child's arms around her neck"
    ~~~~"...some do not believe in miracles...yet God created MOTHER'S..."~~~~
    "You know you're a Mother when the smallest whimper from your child
    can wake you from a dead sleep"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "One of a mother's greatest joys is to be imitated by her child"
    "MOTHER'S are proof that angels do exist"

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    Thank you for the bloglove. Just to explain the icons:

    emoticon I'm the LeftBrain - I'm in charge of words and thought and numbers and rules and, oh yes, charts! I'm all about the how of things. You might think of me as the Parent if you know transnational analysis
    emoticon I'm the RightBrain - all about the feelings and the colors and art and intuition. I'm more of the why of things. You might feel like I'm the Natural Child. (heh heh heh - more of a wild child)
    emoticon I'm more of the whole enchilada. The Adult in TA. When those two are getting along I'm pretty much the only one you'll see. But when things aren't working, it helps to let each one of them have her chance at the podium. They are both good ... I was just trying to find the two most opposite icons offered here on Spark.
    emoticon Yeah - It's a good thing I like red or I'd be complaining about the devil horns.
    emoticon You mean you are proud to be thought devilish
    emoticon Gotta watch it or they'll get to bickering.
