Hi! The most pictures you see on this page are several years old (I did update my profile picture 1/16/2109). I don't have any recent pictures to post because I am having trouble facing the fact that I gained 63 pounds over the past five years. It's a long story that I don't care to relate here, but anyway...What I do want to relate is that I'm now in a better place and I am eager to get healthy and have more fun again! Gaining 63 pounds was easy--but it was not fun. And it left me with a lot of regret. But it did also leave me with lots of new knowledge about myself--how I feel about myself, my life, my needs and desires. I no longer have the need to be 'skinny,' for one thing. I'll be 60 years old in February 2019. Being a twig is the furthest thing from my mind now! I want to be fit, strong, and healthy. Period! And--I just want to live a healthy lifestyle--not a temporary, lose-20-pounds-in-a-month lifestyle. My health is a long-term, lifetime investment!

    I have not checked in with you since last summer. I thought I should renew my participation in Sparkpeople. I originally lost 20lbs. but still have 10 lbs. to go and it looks like they are going to be the toughest to lose. I also need to quit smoking, so this is a sure recipe for disaster. emoticon

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I was excited about the 6 inches now if the scale would just start moving again.

    Hopefully the weather will be nice this weekend. It is so garsh darn hard staying positive with this yucky weather. ESPECIALLY after we get a taste of GREAT weather for a day or two.....

    Hopefully walmart will have a scale in stock for you. I know my mom spent a little bit more money and bough a chefmate one from Penny's....

    My scale did arrive, finally!! I did a site-to-store order so that I did not have to pay for shipping (Walmart). I don't know if it took so long because I had it shipped to the new walmart, or if they are always so sloooooowwwwwww. is here...and I am IN LOVE!!!

    Just a cheap one by Taylor, not a chefmate or anything. But it does what it is supposed to, and I really feel like I can measure with confidence.

    I have been entering everything into my calorie counter in grams or ounces.

    Hope you are enjoying the rain...again...BOOHOO
