It is cold here! The thermometer reads 32 which is balmy warm for you Chicagoans and Minnesotans but here in the Olde South, that's cold! After you live here for a while, you are no longer used to the cold. It's supposed to be in the low teen... Read more
Snapshots and Big Pictures
Wednesday, January 14, 2009      0 comments

I started 2008 at 262 pounds. During the year , I got down to 230, then became complacent and drifted back up to 246 at years end. Now, halfway through January, the magic number this morning was 240. Looking at snap shots, there were some gre... Read more
Act as if!
Tuesday, January 13, 2009      0 comments

The quote on today's Spark Search page is to be as you wish to seem. This is the same as "Act As If". Try to act as though what you want has already been accomplished. The human mind cannot differentiate between something that actually happen... Read more
Beginning a New Week
Monday, January 12, 2009      0 comments

Last week was a good one but this week promises to be better. That is a promise I intend to make the week keep. Abraham Lincoln said it had been his observation that people were just about as happy as they made up their minds to be. Using the... Read more
Mall Walking
Sunday, January 11, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday it was raining and I was supposed to meet a group of people for dinner. There is a mall about 3/4 of the way to the restaurant so I left early and stopped by the mall for a bit of mall walking. In an hour, I had logged a little over ... Read more
Goal Attained!

I have attained my goal of losing five pounds this year. Now I move on to my next goal which is to lose five pounds! I figure five pounds is easily attainable and if I have eleven goals to lose five pounds, I can achieve my goal and move on to... Read more
Another Week Gone
Friday, January 09, 2009      0 comments

Another week has gone and with it some more pounds. Just as a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, the loss of fifty pounds begins with one ounce. By the inch it's a cinch but by the yard it sure is hard. I'll stick with the inch... Read more
Sloshing Through Life

My daughter-in-law swears I was a camel in a former lifetime. Whatever I am drinking, I drink a lot! During the times when I am behaving myself, I drink water, coffee, unsweetened tea and Crystal Light. When I become careless, somehow diet co... Read more
Lucky Seven
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      0 comments

The seventh day of the new year is upon us. With the exception of an unexplained but minor upward blip yesterday morning, the scale has been creeping downward. I know the guru's all say to weigh no more often that once every five days but I e... Read more
The Twelfth Day of Christmas
Tuesday, January 06, 2009      0 comments

Here it is already, the Twelfth Day of Christmas or Epiphany or Wise Men's Day. It's a good day to stop and take stock. In the first five days, I have managed to wean myself off Christmas cookies and the candies which have been spread all over... Read more
You gotta be vigilant
Monday, January 05, 2009      0 comments

First day back at work and the local restaurant is actually helping me out. The lunch special today was shrimp and scallops over rice with a mango based salsa. That's a whole lot better than a burger and fries and it was cheaper too! It also... Read more

If you have any money to put in the stock market, move it from Anheuser Busch to Crystal Light. With the advent of the new year, I have changed my drink of choice from Budweiser Select to Crystal Light Iced tea and Lemonade or mix them together... Read more
Coming Down from the Holidays
Saturday, January 03, 2009      0 comments

The hardest part about6 the holidays is that the house is full of Christmas cookies and candies. When the holidays are over, the goodies are escorted out of the house. Quitting cookies and candy cold turkey isn't easy but it works a whole lot ... Read more
Reflections on the New Year
Friday, January 02, 2009      0 comments

New Year's Day was spent as well it should be, with family. We all gathered for fellowship, football, homemade pizza and fun. Our family loves pizza and by making our own, we control the quantity of the less than healthy ingredients. A couple... Read more
The New Frontier
Thursday, January 01, 2009      0 comments

1/20/61 JFK said "We stand now at the edge of a new Frontier" 1/1/09 We are back at the edge of another new frontier. New Years Day is an artificial point of starting over but a great point of reference. I weighed myself before... Read more
