I am in my sixth year of living a healthy life style!! I celebrated my fifth year anniversary with SparkPeople February 12, 2016. 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 last November to Anorexia Nervosa. I am in the first year of my 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 No Matter How You Feel, Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up, and Never Give Up - Unknown

    Surround yourself with people who enjoy living. They’ve obviously discovered how to live. Why not hang with the pros? Liz Strauss

    The people at church liked the peppers too. We brought home macaroni and cheese and Vienna sausages-hubby likes that stuff, but I don't eat it.

    My son's fiancee and our blind brother-in-law were having a great time at the reunion. He told her, "Now I'm going to have to leave you here, but don't get too distraught!" She said, "I'll miss you!" He moved over one chair to talk to his cousin, lol! I told her she was a "Suck-up."

    We laugh a lot and happiness and humor seem to go together.

    We finished two sheet cake pans of Philly cheese steak stuffed pepper halves last night around midnight for our church pot-luck today. I had a nightmare and hubby woke me up. I went back to sleep and had a continuation of the same dream and again hubby woke me up. I had coffee for breakfast and was dragging all morning.

    I got in a brief nap after we came home from church. Our son and his fiancee came by and they gave hubby a Mylar balloon which says, "Happy Father's Day from your FAVORITE child." They also gave a card to him.

    Our son took his Dad to a ball game and his fiancee went to see her Dad while they are at the game. Her Dad is on call today for his job.

    The pool has not cleared.

    . . . true happiness is not a place or a time, but a state of being. If you cannot enjoy the little things, then you have yet to find happiness. Robert Moment

    Our son put baking soda in the pool this evening. The water is too cold to swim in right now, but once it is hot, it will warm up. I can't wait for it to clear.
