Hi Sparkies! It's been two months since I posted a blog. *hanging head in shame*. It is gorgeous in north central PA right now. Unbelievable colors of fall. I'm so thankful for the beauty where we live. The fog in the mountain valleys, wi... Read more

Almost the semester. . . I'm at work on and off this week; first day of classes is next Monday. My little caboose (well, he's 21) comes home for a week between his summer job cleaning dorm rooms (poetic justice!) and his semester start. When ... Read more

So I am SO excited! Today I weighed in at 162.8, which means for my height (over 5'8") I am at the high end of a healthy BMI! 24.7 !! This is not something that I EVER dreamed possible; I was edging into the obese category a few months ago. ... Read more

My doc says probable stress fracture in my foot. The xray also showed my other nasty foot issues (bunion and osteoarthritis--what? Eeew!). I am probably not going to get a bone scan to confirm because I would have to pay 30% of it as coinsur... Read more

Well, to me it was a big one. I have been stressed all week about something; basically it was a job proposal I had to write for some freelance work; lots of angst etc. I have REALLY felt stressed, wondering how to write the proposal, wondering... Read more

I am SO excited to say that I have lost 30 lbs as of today. Wow. I never would have thought this possible. I have only a couple of lbs more until I am at the upper end of a healthy BMI, and only 20 more until I am in the middle, where I want ... Read more

So, quick check: What does the word "grace" mean to you? As in, God's grace? I confess, it's one of those specialized Bible words that I kinda don't stop to think about when I am reading. I know we are saved by grace through faith (Eph... Read more

I feel so blessed to have seen all 4 of my chillens and both wives this month. They are all in their 20's, but live scattered in PA and NY. We just got back from a trip to Buffalo--really a great, fun city, despite its economic woes. Went s... Read more

I've been slacking a bit on posting. . . sorry sparkies! Hope y'all are doing well. I was at the beach last week with DH and even though it was restaurant week, for the most part I did pretty well with my nutrition. Notice I am not calling it... Read more

Well hello Sparkfriends! For me, it's been a good couple of months--down 21 lbs (well 4 of those lbs came off in January but I count them!). Been exercising like crazy and being good on the food plan. Today I budgeted in a half-piece of... Read more

Another motivation for losing weight: I want to be able to wear my wedding rings again! We are complicated. Weight/food/exercise issues are complicated. I don't pretend to have it figured out. But I do know that God answers prayer. H... Read more
