LOL We have some friends at church that use the same terminology for us. They are about 25 years older than us and call us kids. lol My dh doesn't know if he feels cheated out of feeling old at 55 or flattered that he's considered young. Myself, I am what I am and in the long run, eternity is a long time with 55 just a drop in time. I'm just glad I won't have to have this deteriorating body to live with. emoticon

It is well with my soul.

Yum-Yum.....Sounds like my favorite meal! My son is a huge fan of Lemon Meringue Pie, too. I use to make one for his birthday every year. Now his wife buys him a cheesecake instead. LOL
Tell your dh he's what I call YOUNG! I have sons-in-law who are around that age....and I call them kids. emoticon

I'm glad your weight is down but the blood pressure is serious. I sure hope you can get it under control soon. I'll be thinking of you during prayer.

I have been busy today. My dh's birthday; he turned 55 today. lol He said he never felt old until he woke up this morning. lol I made him a lemon meringue pie and his favorite supper. Baked pork chops with mushrooms, baked potatoe with sour cream and green onions and carrots. He was very happy with that.

It is well with my soul.

Thanks for the prayers. I did good at the dr.'s as far as my weight is concerned. I'm 19 pounds lighter than I was at my last weigh-in. Dr. wasn't happy with my blood pressure....so I have another pill to take. emoticon

How wonderful for you and them. lol I imagine how proud you must feel of both your grandsons. I never got up until 7:45 but still in my housecoat. I've been answering emails all morning and time to stop computer time and get busy with the housework. I need to go gift shopping for my dh as it's his birthday on Tuesday.

I never started this cycle until I was in my thirties. After I had my daughter at 25 I couldn't lose weight as easily as I did with my son. I had gained 90 pounds with the pregnancy of my daughter and only lost 25 at her birth. After that it was a struggle to get rid of the weight. I was down to 135 when I was 30 but soon was on my way up to where I was 232 when I started sparks in April, 2008.Up down, up down. I feel like a yo-yo.

It is well with my soul.

I've been on that merry-go-round since I was a teenager...& that was a long time ago. Right now I'm the same weight I was when I started high school. I remember being weighed in...after all these years. Not a good memory.

my grandsons are coming for the weekend and I need to get some goodies in the house for them. I'm hoping I can find stuff they will eat that if I surrender won't do too much damage. I already have to re-lose 3 pounds from the wedding cake I devoured.

Hi everyone; I'm around just not very dedicated to one site. I post on several sites and when someone asks for some special help I try to be there for them. Otherwise, I'm jumping around talking on several sites a day. Hope I can encourage you somehow too. A positive attitude is catching. emoticon

I have seen that too. The only reason that I have not been on is because we lost our DSL and it took AT&T until Saturday to get it fixed. We had allot of rain here (see my pictures of our new pool, that is now gone). But this team has gotten small and not to many posts either.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

I'm as guilty as everyone else. I don't usually post until I get an email alert with an interesting title like yours. Then I hop over to see what's going on. I've been checking out the huddle walls lately and some groups have lots of comments. Others have none for days on end.

Like many people I belong to several groups so it is hard to keep up with all of them. Some days I'm lucky to post my cardio minutes and water intake. But I love SP and hope I can be an encouragement to someone.

Keep posting. I'm not going anywhere.

Actually, it is rather sad. There are very few posts on the team anymore. The team leaders are rarely heard from either. It has changed a lot in the past few months.

As I posted yesterday, I've been away for awhile and am just wondering if there is still a team here? When I left, there were a lot of familiar faces that posted on a daily basis. But now, it looks as if very few are here and it's rather sporadic. I'm trusting that it's due to vacations and the busyness of summer. I would hate to see this team disappear as I enjoy being part of a smaller team. Hope to hear from lots of you soon!! emoticon God bless you all....together, by the grace of God, we CAN DO THIS!!!
