Reaching the goal and beyond

2014 is my year to finish my journey to an ideal goal weight--
and then to maintain that weight indefinitely.

I began here in January 2010 as PennyAn45.

During the past 4+ years on Spark People, I have changed my eating behaviors and have permanently shed 30+ pounds.
I now want to shed another 5-10 lbs and remain at that new lower weight.

Spark People is my community of friends -- all of whom are working toward the same goals. They inspire ...

it's very sad to watch animals mourn their loved ones. We once found a dead indigo bunting which had been killed on the road. Every day we would see it's mate come to visit the site where it died. It broke my heart. The same with other animals. They have a lot to teach us. I really enjoyed your blog! emoticon

Your pic of butternut squash apple soup looks delich!!

I do make my black bean soup myself -- last week's had diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, onion, 2 cans rinsed drained black beans, carrots, celery, bell pepper, brown rice, red pepper flakes and chili seasoning . . . but I change it up depending upon what's in the house (maybe sweet potatoes, jalapenos, cumin, oregano etc. . . . )

Thanks for stopping by my page! I hope you're having a great weekend. It's raining here, but doesn't really affect me since I'm still in a cast and can't really get outdoors. That will change Monday when the cast comes off and they've promised me a walking boot. YAY!!!!!

Hope you are doing well and that the rest of your weekend is great!
