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

    This opportunity presented itself since I didn't go to Wyoming and I know I would have gained with all that our daughter fixed for Thanksgiving dinner. She had this posted on Facebook: Thanksgiving!! Another huge holiday with family in Wyoming and the fridges are full of leftovers. We had a cheese platter with a homemade cheese ball and assorted noms, steamed shrimp, caprese salad, deviled eggs, dry-bribed turkey, prime rib, molasses baked ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, wild rice stuffing with bacon and sausage, oyster dressing, butternut squash casserole, creamed spinach, honey glazed carrots, braised purple cabbage with bacon, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole. All washed down with pumpkin pie, butterscotch bourbon pie, honey bourbon peach pie, caramel apple pie, cherry crumble pie, apple crumble pie, a flourless chocolate layer cake, pumpkin toffee cheesecake, white chocolate cranberry cheesecake, and cinnamon whipped cream.

    That would be a massive carbohydrate overload for me which means high glucose numbers.

    I'm so glad to hear from you! The loom sounds like a great way to chill out and create beautiful things.
    All is well here, I'm doing fine on almost-vegetarian food, some year end pressure at work but it will ease up soon.
