Midway through 2017 and it's been a mixed bag, but I'm still here plugging away. DH and I started the year totally on track, now we are more in a maintenance state. We identified foods that don't settle well in our bodies and reduced many of them. My weight has stabilized instead of going down, so I'll need to reign in my food again. I have started walk/jog again 3 days a week. That has been a great move and very encouraging. I'm only going a mile, but I'm doing it!

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    What I like about you is your commitment to your family. I think you are amazing. I read the things you post and how busy you are and how you manage everything and I admire that.

    What I like about you is, first of all, your devotion to family. I am the same way with my family and know the importance of it. I like your page and your banner photo is still my favorite of anything I've seen on all of the team pages. I like that you are committed to reaching your goals and you keep working at it. That is inspiring to me.

    Hi, hi we're your weather girls
    And have we got news for you
    You better listen
    Get ready, all you lonely girls
    And leave those umbrellas at home

    Humidity is rising (uh rising), barometer's getting low (oh low, girl)
    According to all sources (what sources now), the street's the place to go (we better hurry up)
    'Cause tonight for the first time (first time)
    Just about half-past ten (half past ten)
    For the first time in history
    It's gonna start raining men (start raining men)

    It's raining men, hallelujah, it's raining men, amen
    I'm gonna go out to run and let myself get
    Absolutely soaking wet
    It's raining men, hallelujah
    It's raining men, every specimen
    Tall, blonde, dark and lean
    Rough and tough and strong and mean

    God bless mother nature, she's a single woman too
    She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do
    She taught every angel she rearranged the sky
    So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
    Oh, it's raining men, yeah
    Humanity's rising (humanity's rising)
    Barometer's getting low (it's getting low, low, low, low)
    According to all sources (according to all sources)
    The street's the place to go
    'Cause tonight for the first time
    Just about half past ten
    For the first time in history
    It's gonna start raining man (start raining men)

    "Kentucky Rain"

    Seven lonely days
    And a dozen towns ago
    I reached out one night
    And you were gone
    Don't know why you'd run,
    What you're running to or from
    All I know is I want to bring you home

    So I'm walking in the rain,
    Thumbing for a ride
    On this lonely Kentucky backroad
    I've loved you much too long
    And my love's too strong
    To let you go, never knowing
    What went wrong

    Kentucky rain keeps pouring down
    And up ahead's another town
    That I'll go walking thru
    With the rain in my shoes,
    Searchin for you
    In the cold Kentucky rain,
    In the cold Kentucky rain
