I've been seriously ill for the past year but have finally made it into remission and need to take off all of those "prednisone pounds"!! I'm on my way. Took off 30 pounds and so I'm half way there. Looking forward to being a healthy weight again.

Some words to live by:

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."


He dreams impractical dreams. He tries the patience of Job. But with his childlike trust and his zest for living, who am I to say that the drummer he marches to will not take him to the stars? --Erma Bombeck wrote this about one of her sons and she may as well have written it about mine. It's so true.

My Goals:

My Program:
I am adhering to the recommendations of SparkPeople limiting my intake of nutrients to balance them out to the recommended specifications of the site. It appears to follow the Mediteranean Diet that so many doctors recommend. It appears to be working because I am finally losing weight. I'm also using more fruits and vegies for carbs instead of starches, but I have not stopped eating those, just less frequently and in smaller portions.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries, especially Jonathan Ellerman and James Patterson novels, and I love to cook, but hate to clean up afterwards! :0) Mostly, I love cooking and baking and playing backgammon with my 17 year old son. We've been baking for holidays since he was 7 years old. He's the best person I know and I hope I am creating memories that will last him a lifetime.

    Hi Lizz. I responded to Sue about her comment. The reason I set it at 20 pounds is because I've been sooooo big in the past. I'll never let it get to 20 pounds before I start seeing a red flag. 200-220 is set but my eye is really on 210...if I see 210 then I'll get to work. I'm leaving the high at 220 just in case some MAJOR stress occurs. That would be the only way it would ever approach that number anyway. But I'm watching it real close. I said this to Sue as well so we're all on the same page.

    I added you as a friend, also. Thank You for all the wonderful comments and compliments, just what I needed this morning.

    Breakfast steaks is in a pkg in the meat counter. about 3/8" thick and may 2 1/2" by 3". It is beef. If you order steak and eggs in a restaurant, you will usually get a breakfast steak. I would estimate it to be three ounces.
    Hope you give it a try sometime.

    Thank You for your length detailed message about your sister having bilateral knee surgery. My friend is having both done, tomorrow, another friend is having one done tomorrow. So the outcome, for both should be interesting. Both seems to take things in stride, so I think they will deal with it/them fine.

    Thank you for your compliment on my GGD'd pictures, she was only 5 pounds and so tinny looking in that picture.
