hi . i'm here to find friends and loose weight. i've been at this for awhile now. and it seems like when i loose some of the weight, it always fines itself back home. i am a little nutty and crazy at times. but now i can blame that on my old age. lol
if you want to write ,you can reach me here at this email anytime. just let me know you are from sparkpeople, just in-case it goes into spam i can take it out gwengratton@outlook.com
i'm also on face-book

This Time..........

Another diet we're about to endure,
but this time we'll do it, of that we are sure.
We've tried all the others without much success,
but this is the one to get into THAT dress!

For years we've tried hard to lose excess weight,
and we now have the answer to looking just great.
For us no more 'chips' or 'Big Mac' on a whim,
we want to look good and we'd love to be slim.

We joined all the clubs where we'd regularly meet,
but when we read all the can't haves we'd go home and 'greet'
They said don't have this and they said don't have that,
so we'd paid all that money just for a chat!

We all have a wardrobe from size 12 up to 20,
and big, baggy jumpers of which there are plenty.
A drawer of small undies is a dream we all know,
so those big ugly knickers really must go!

With time passing quickly and teenage years gone,
we have no more excuses to rely upon,
The one about 'puppy fat' ran out long ago,
so this time it's business, let's give it a go!

Best Year Yet...

This is going to be
your best year yet.
It's destined to be a year
when dreams come true,
because there's nothing
you can't accomplish
if you believe in you!

And I want you to know
that I'll be cheering for
you every step of the way
every day!

your friend gwen

    Hi my dear, did you leave a note on my tracker page? I was so thrilled to see your name. We have both been around a long time. I of course dropped off for a while and recently took a "leave of absence" but I am back and will try to make it to goal by the end of the year. Only through the grace of God, but if it is His will I sure would like to make it easier go get in and out of my power chair.
    I suffered a great loss this month but am trying to get back in to the swing of chatting with my friends here.
    I have tried to contact some member friends but many can't be found. I am going through my list to delete those who have dropped out or gone to another group. There are so many names to go through!!
    How are you? Love to hear from you in an email. inglimab@gmail.com
    Have a great week, sending love, Betty emoticon emoticon

    Haven't heard anything from you in a long time so I'm dropping by to say Hi. Hot weather hit today, suppose summer has arrived. Now that I am in my own home I won't have to go out in the heat to walk the dog. At the assisted living that was a 3-5 times a deal whether it wspouring rain or 110 degrees. Now in his own home he can go out on his own.
    I do hope you are doing well. I'm hanging in there. Have two children who are ailing. One had a transplant that her body may be rejecting, doctors are stumped but her test are not what they want to see. My youngest son is in great pain in his side, had a gallbladder operation a couple of weeks ago that was supposed to help, but has not. So we keep praying all will work out. What ever, it will be God's will.
    I have one great grandson, but he is in NC so I don't see him much. Got to see him in Aug. when my grandson married in Tahoe, CA. He was ring bearer, so cute.
    Well, there's much more I should do so will quit. Just know you are thought of. We have known each other for a long time!! Sending hugs, Betty emoticon
