Fri, 27 Jul 2012 10:37:36 EST March Motivation Moments Here is a new topic for March...March Motivation Moments... <BR> This one comes from Charles Colso - his book "Loving God" <BR> <BR> "When we truly comprehend our own nature, repentance is no dry doctrine, no frightening message, no morbid form of self-flagellation. It is, as the early church fathers said, " a gift God grants which leads to life. It is the key to the door of liberation, to the only freedom we can ever know". Thu, 1 Mar 2012 11:21:04 EST February Bible Scriptures of Love Since February is "love" month, thought I would start a topic on Bible Scriptures of God's Love for us. <BR> "For God so loved the World that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world, not to judge the world but to save the world through Him". John 3: 16-17 Wed, 1 Feb 2012 14:04:57 EST January Jumpstarts Okay, now that I've EATEN most of the sugar things in the house I'll "jumpstart" my January by tracking (again).

Just thought I would share this, I received an email today and it concerned the Feeding America Backpack Program where the schools send food home with kids who other wise would go without. This is a reason we feed our kids at church on Wednesday's. I see this in our kids. Again this is the Feed America program. <BR> <BR> Have you ever been hungry? <BR> Have you ever gone a whole day without food? Two days? Sadly, many children in our area are going an entire weekend with little or no food ... Tue, 9 Mar 2010 12:58:08 EST Ranger-Cute Story We have two dogs;Ranger (lab mix) and Rocky (full lab).

When I came in to enter my lunch and dinner my calorie count had changed. I don't know why it did, or how it did it, but it lowered my calories. Now I don't need them lowered as I am maintaining just fine as I have reached my goal weight. So, has anyone else encountered this? Do I need to reset something for maintenance?
