UPDATE: (6/3/2015): Hubby and I are doing Weight Watchers together, and I also use SparkPeople to help keep me straight. There is much more support here than online for weight watchers. I started on December 28th, 2014 and since that time, I am down 23 pounds.

UPDATE: (12/29/13): I'm working on it.

UPDATE: (3/5/14): I'm nothing if not consistent in my failure to make a lifestyle change stick. sigh. I am trying again!

UPDATE: (5/17/13): I am starting the Spark Solution two week challenge. I can do this, I WILL do this!

UPDATE (4/3/2013): I could give excuses and tell you how hard the past year has been, but essentially, I gave up. I am now back up to the highest weight i have ever been, and trying yet again to change. Now, I not only have to change MY eating patterns, but also my husbands, because together we can do it, separately, not so easily done.

MARRIED on July 16th, 2011, and still riding that wave of euphoria. :)

UPDATE: I am GETTING MARRIED!!!! Over the past year (august 2010 to now) I have put back on ALL the weight i worked so hard to lose. I am now working again to lose! My future husband is working WITH me on this goal, and together, we are moving toward healthy eating and getting up and MOVING! :)

On December 28th, 2009, I chose for the first time in my put ME first. To make change the path that my life was on. I wanted to LIVE not just to live. I wanted more than sitting on the couch, falling asleep at 7pm every night and wishing i had the energy to clean my house. I have two beautiful children, both who learned unhealthy habits from me, both who are relearning habits now with me.

The road is a never ending one, and one that will definitely have twists, turns, bumps, potholes, and even sinkholes, but I am determined that I will follow the road and LIVE.

    It's not hard but it depends on what you want to can...
    cubes, puree, pumpkin butter, pie filling etc.... ????
    I find it easier to can cubed, then I can use it however I want later...
    Here's a link on how to can cubed and pureed pumpkin... I cook my pumpkin in the oven not boil it...

    Glad it went so well. I was so sad when I lost so many steps the first time I changed my battery that I like to be sure to warn others. Keep up the good stepping! emoticon
