I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in March. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I wished, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 1.5 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the next 2-3 weeks pending my mom's health after her fall last March, breaking an arm and leg. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.

After a very long plateau, I have made my 1st long term goal of 100# lost on 3/20/16. 1# added to the loss this week. The plateau is broken and now onto a small goal of 17# (no date to meet).

I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    ~~~}*{~~~ 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.

    My thoughts for the day. Proverbs 15:15, " All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Since I wanted to increase my merry heart I wrote a poem.

    Principle of Rejoicing

    R emember His infinite atoning sacrifice.
    E xercise agency to believe His living word.
    J oin in His sacrifices by loving service.
    O bey from the heart what you've "heard".
    I ncrease daily, thanksgiving and praise.
    C hoosing virtue and holiness continually,
    E nter into the joy of the Lord all your days.

    I do remember both of those flooding years in Mn. as was living in the twin cities area. That is what I figure will happen again in some areas of Mn. again this spring when it finally arrives.
