SNOVEMBER-Next year moving to Buffalo--oh my!

Fatigue, body pain, and food cravings are the life-long symptoms I hope to stop. Wish me luck. Evening Eating has been the biggest problem. Oh and if I would eat at the table-instead of at the computer or in front of the TV--well that would help greatly!

June 2014. Finally after 5 years Sparking, I am below 250!
Down 30 LBS.

Failing to plan is planning to fail!
-Do I have fresh and frozen produce in the house?
-Do I have meals frozen for when I just can't get it together?
-Am I drinking my water?
-Am I getting to the pool often? No problem here!!!!
-Am I pacing myself ?
Am I breathing?
-Am I getting the extra help I need, even if I have to pay for it? I am a CAREGIVER since 2008 for DH.
-Am I planning fun into my day? Well--I still don't have enough energy to do this successfully.
-Am I Eating at the Table?. Oh boy is this hard for me!

I don't need those hundreds of snacks between meals!
NO SNACKS! NO SECONDS! NO SWEETS! except for "S Days!"
This is really, really hard for me!

Eat G-BOMBS! Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds ...for reducing body inflammation and pain from FM.

We can do this, Friends! I can do this!

You've come a long way, Baby!

"Whatever you do, if you do it hard enough you'll enjoy it. The important thing is to work and work hard."

- David Rockefeller

I think this is lost on a lot of our youth today-they expect things to be handed to them. Now they don't even want to give failing grades in school. If these kids never experience failure, how can they learn it takes work to succeed.
I know that for us to succeed at losing weight it takes work.
Here is to a successful week for you.

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say 'Thank you'?”

William A. Ward,


This week of Thanksgiving remember to say Thanks for all your blessings. I am saying Thanks for you being a blessing in my life.

Monday – definitely on the downhill slide with the weather. UGH. Winter Weather Advisory starting @ 1 pm. Up to 5 in. of snow. Not what I wanted ot hear, but it is what it is!

The temp did get up to 45 yesterday. Will start in the 40’s today but plummet. So, there you have it. Mother Nature needs a mood stabilizer!

Got lots of prep work done for Thanksgiving, so very happy about that.

Here’s to a good Monday.
