I quietly return

It has been a long winter, and a very trying time in my life. As I await surgery, I am quietly picking up the strings of my life again....

My Goals:
I have a lot of weight to lose and I know it will take some time, as it took time to put it onto my body. I take it one day at a time, and strengthen my resolve to succeed, with my friendshipson SP and leading my TOPS group.

My Program:
-anything in moderation.
-sensible food choices.
-exercise when I can achieve it without a big amount of pain.
-tracking everything onSP

Personal Information:
I live in Canada, in a small isolated town on the wild west coast of BC.
I have never married, nor have I had children, just not things that came my way in this lifetime
I am a leader of a TOPS group that meets in my home on wed mornings.
I have been a leader in one other group, and then this group I started in my own home, since I was 25.
I became diabetic at that age as well.

Other Information:
I recently discovered painting with watercolor and paint daily now. It is a hobby that helps keep me out of the kitchen and and the fridge! ha ha

I used to occassional paint with oil paint but it would take so long to dry and you had to clean up every time and also had to waste leftover paint........not so with watercolor! Makes me much happier about this activity!

I am a member of the site that you mention, and may have shared it with you a few years ago when we had discussions about bringing your friend into awareness of her diabetes, but thanks for the thought! emoticon

I found the following website in a stack of papers that I went through recently, Bear. I guess I had it for Shirley originally.

Thought I would share it with you & others before tossing the paper out.

I am determined to sort through papers & weed them out. emoticon That is on my list of not absolutely necessary chores to accomplish --- however, they nag me not being done, so I will accomplish them one-by-one until the list is completed.

Interesting teaching today by the newest member of our church staff --- at first, I found it difficult to get a handle on his delivery style. Our Pastor spoils us with his style. emoticon Our Pastor was not there --- we missed him --- still, our "guest" teacher did a good job.

God bless!
