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 am wondering if Bayau's digging may have been the reason she was an owner surrender to The Humane Society. She tries to get under the fence by digging to get at the other dogs' toys or when she sees a squirrel or rabbit in a neighbor's yard. She also digs to try to get to one dog that she plays with.

    Now she wants outside just to search for rabbits. Something is giving me bad stomach cramps, salads for sure, maybe the cream in my coffee or the Torani sugar-free syrup.

    I talked to my son's fiancee tonight about pictures and she is worried about privacy, so it doesn't look like I will be able to post any online. I didn't buy a clutch purse and probably won't take a camera with me. We start getting ready at 10 AM and the wedding isn't until 4 PM. The weather forecast says there may be rain. I hope not, there are 150 people invited.

    We'll have to see how the day goes.
