Maintaining on the sliding scale and beyond. Life has given me enough endless challenges! I need to keep learning how to cope with them, as this is life! No one said it would be easy or fair. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. Retirement has brought me to the time in my life that I’m the healthiest I have ever been.
my favorite challenge is eating one pound of veggies a day. Half cooked and half raw.

Spring 5% Challenge (Weight Warrior)
Think about Week 1:
1. Am I satisfied with my finish?
2. Did I participate to the best of my ability? Yes
3. Did I read and take advantage of the fun activities my Leaders work hard to provide for me? Yes
4. Did I read a blog, visit a page or send a Goodie to someone on my team? Yes
5. How can I improve during Week 2, and 3, and ... until final weigh-in?

    ~~~}*{~~~ emoticon ~~~}*{~~~THE DONKEY~~~}*{~~~ emoticon ~~~}*{~~~

    An old man, a boy and a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey
    and the old man walked. As they went along, they passed some people
    who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding.
    The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions.
    Then, later, they passed some people who remarked,
    "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk."
    So they decided they'd both walk! Soon they passed some more people
    who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride.
    So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them
    by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey.
    The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decided to carry the donkey.
    As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal
    and he fell into the river and drowned.
    The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well
    kiss your “donkey" goodbye! And even this ending won’t please everyone.
