I am in my seventh year of living a healthy life style!!
I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2017. I reached my goal weight on 2/7/12 - almost a year to the day I joined SparkPeople!! Sometimes my weight goes up a little bit, but I manage to drop it back down and maintain with different challenges on the SparkPeople web site, the support of my SparkBuddies as well as future physical goals.

I started off with walking. If you would have told me three years ago that I would have run a 5k, I would have never believed it!

As of today, I have run 5ks, 10k's, 3 ten milers, and 5 Half Marathons! Funny how fast one's perspective can change...even for us middle-aged people!

Even though I have conquered all of the above, I am faced with an even bigger "challenge". I lost my 26 year old son two years ago to Anorexia Nervosa. I am still in the grieving process and it is very difficult. I need to stay healthy, but, it is not the first thing on my mind. And, since he passed away from counting calories, weighing himself on the scale 3 times per day, and eating halves of everything - it has been a real mental challenge for me.

My favorite quotes...

All you can change is yourself, but sometimes that changes everything! Gary W. Goldstein

Goals are dreams with deadlines. ---Diana Scharf Hunt

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live. - Jim Rohn

What you are doing is not nearly as important as how you feel about what you are doing. - Unknown

There'll be two dates on your tombstone. And all your friends will read 'em. But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em. - Kevin Welch

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. Walt Disney

Accomplishment only takes place when you actively participate with your intentions. Therefore, fully commit to participate in the dreams of your choice and do so against all the risks confronting you. Guru Singh

    I don't have Koty's mother's e-mail address. She and her husband sold their house and have moved. I don't have their new address or their e-mail addresses.

    Koty had a habit of naming objects and wanted to name a big tricycle Blue Bernice. That was the middle name of someone that he knew, but when he went to buy the letters, there was no "R" so it became, Blue Be nice, lol!

    The fellow that told the stories about smoking his first cigar with Koty, said he and a friend went to a yard sale and saw 5 broken TV's and they wanted to pull a prank on Koty. They were given the TVs to haul away. They took them to Koty's parents' house which was situated on the side of a very steep hill with a steep driveway up to it, and they lined them across the driveway. Koty told one of them without knowing they had done it, that his Dad had called the police thinking the TV's may have been stolen.

    The young man said, "Mr. James, for a very long time I was afraid of you!" I suppose that he thought that he would still be angry with him for doing that, but we all laughed about it yesterday.

    My husband was going to buy a crosscut paper shredder and I had enough money for the vacuum a few years back. They do a great job. My stray hairs were wound tightly around the beater bar.

    Now my husband knows what to do.
