Hello Old Friends!! Hello New Friends!!

Well, here we are again... Nine years later and at my heaviest weight in recorded history. And with some health issues looming (that pesky cholesterol). It's basically, drop the weight or take the meds. Well, my signature says that I'm "making the BETTER choice," so I am choosing what is better... dropping the weight.

This time, I have the help of a nutritionist, and because she has asked me to start counting calories & numbers, I naturally came back to SP to do that. So here am I. But all she can do is make suggestions. I gotta do the work!

I'm not sure if I'm gonna join (or slip back into) any teams... I will track and log here. I will probably blog here, as she also wants me to journal (which I am having a hard time finding something to journal about. Can you even believe that??). But going back and reading some of my old blogs is motivating me to give this ole SP thing a whirl again.

So let's give this a go, shall we?!!?



I started 2007 as Grancy, weighing in at 223 lbs. I earned my 50 lbs lost badge in the summer of 2009). That is but a distant memory, as those 50 lbs have become 60 to lose (just to that point!) It cracks me up that my first goal is 1 lb more than my original starting weight! (Uh, cracks me up in a not-so-good way...)

"Two things I ask of you; deny them not to me before I die: Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, 'Who is the Lord?' or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God." (Proverbs 30:7-9)

"Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the LORD Almighty." (Zechariah 4:6b)

~ Grancy's Prayer (January, 2007) ~
Father God, you knit me together in my mother's womb, and I thank you for this body. I'm sorry I haven't taken better care of this precious gift. You've given me a strong and healthy body, whole and free from disease. I have taken it for granted and haven't been a good steward of this gift. I have gotten lazy and complacent and have let my taste buds decide what I eat. Lord, I pray you forgive me for squandering that which you gave me. I pray now that you will guide me on my quest to preserve whatever is left. Help me to consider what I eat before I even put it on a plate. Help me to regain the muscle tone you designed me to have. Help me to know that I was fearfully and wonderfully made and to honour and respect my body as the cherished object that it is. Oh Lord, I treat mere possessions better than I treat myself. Forgive me Lord, and help me to physically be the creation you made me to be. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

    Hey there stranger!
    Well, sort of stranger. :) I mean, we are friends on Facebook after all. ;)

    Anywho, I am making an attempt to get back in the swing of things health-wise and decided to try out SparkPeople one more time. I was going through comments on my Spark page and saw a bunch from you, which brought lots of smiles to my face.

    I've missed interacting with you here. Hope you're doing well and that we'll be "lurking" on each other's pages again soon!

    The Power of Friends

    Everyone knows of the power of friends,
    The terrific result, when everything blends.
    When people have friends, they don’t stand alone;
    Friends always help, when you face the unknown.

    Friends give you courage to face problems untold,
    So the love of a friend can help make you bold.
    They can help you to live a much richer life,
    So your every day living will be less filled with strife.

    Thanks for being my friend!
