So, there I was sitting at my computer reading about so many of you and the successes and struggles you've been going through. Well, I've been very stuck for the past several years at about 145-155. It has been so discouraging. I've allowed h... Read more

I started to write this to include all the challenges of this day. Then, I decided not to bore the world so I deleted it all. I am very tired. I haven't gotten to everything on my to do list. But, I've gotten to a lot of those items and it f... Read more

It's June! How can that be? Wasn't I supposed to be skinny enough by now to put on a swim suit or a pair of shorts without all those jiggly bits flapping about? Haven't I thought this same thing at the beginning of a lot of Junes? So true, s... Read more

After reading another Spark blog I started recalling my own childhood influences. My mom liked to cook and bake. We were a meat and potatoes kind of family - lots of beef and chicken. We also grew most of our own produce. We had apples, plum... Read more

Yuck! I ate some of the left over pizza from Chuck E. Cheese. Now maybe that wouldn't be an awful thing, but since I've now done that for the past three days it is pretty awful. I just can't bring myself to throw away perfectly good food, eve... Read more

Our daughter's family left early this morning for home. The baby is recovering from her brain surgery and we are so thankful that she is doing as well as she is. Her brothers got her giggling yesterday. That sound was music to our ears. It w... Read more

O.k. so here I am wondering once more just why it is that the scale refuses to budge. As I review the food logs I feel pretty proud of myself. I stay pretty much below the target calories. Then I look more closely at the reports and a big oop... Read more
Pain, pain go away!
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      2 comments

I've listened far too long to the woeful sobs of my 5 month old granddaughter. I get migraines often and know how much they can hurt. I've had three concussions and know how debilitating they can be and how long the pain can go on. But, I've ... Read more

I woke to a smattering of fresh snow. I left the house for a prayer meeting to sunshine and blue skies. I left the church to overcast and drizzle. Those conditions remind me of my own feelings this day. I've been down and up and then down ag... Read more
Another storm or just a little more wind?
Monday, April 12, 2010      2 comments

After a beautiful beginning to the week, I am sad to feel the windstorm today. Perhaps another real storm is on its way. We'll see. But, I'm using the day to get caught up on so many jobs around here. Bills are calling to me, laundry is not ... Read more

I can hardly believe that another winter has gone to sleep and spring flowers are raising their lovely heads everywhere I look. This change of season encourages me so much. I know that I can put away my winter wardrobe and begin wearing those ... Read more
