The auction...

Saturday, March 17, 2012

We held the auction of my deceased in-laws estate today; although there were some very difficult moments, all in all the day went well! We were blessed with beautiful weather and a great crowd... Now all that's left is to close on the house, which occurs Monday morning! Life is really a blessing that we shouldn't take for granted!

    It's so hard to get rid of things that really meant something to someone else. It's hard for me to get rid of things I know I don't need any longer. I'm trying to thin out things so nobody else will need to. Sad but necessary. emoticon emoticon

    I like that you mentioned that Life is really a blessing that we shouldn't take for granted. I just lost a good friend to a heart attack. He lived alone, was 66 and died in his sleep. I am 69, live alone and doen't always hear from my daughter every day. i feel blessed and thank God when I wake up in the morning and at night for the day he allowed me to have.
God bless you. emoticon

In what you say of another, apply the test of kindness, necessity and truth, and let nothing pass your lips without a 2/3 majority. ~Liz Armbruster,

This quote reminds me that I need to constantly be diligent about the words coming out of my mouth!!!!

    Actually that can work 2 ways: (1) words coming out AND (2) foods coming in!

To quote one of the daily Spark blog comments: "Is it really worth it???

Have a great weekend!

Reflecting on 50 and my progress!!!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Today is the day I celebrate the 50th anniversary of my birth! It has been an absolutely awesome day, filled with lots of phone calls, messages, cards, and hugs! I am so blessed with my life and all the wonderful people who God has placed in my world!!!

When I joined sparkpeople a little over a year ago, my goal was to be at my desired weight prior to my 50th birthday... which I didn't achieve... however I am not disappointed in myself or my progress as I have done amazing and know that I will get there... in due time!
When I first started my journey to become a better/healthier me, I weighed in at 281.7 pounds, when I joined sparkpeople I was down to 260 pounds and am currently weighing in at 185.6 pounds... :)

    Hi there! I turned the 5-0 number in November, and I did NOT make my goal either.
However, to encourage you...
FIRST: you've come a LONG way in the journey of health! (That's almost 100 pounds and that is super awesome that you've sent that much packing!)

Secondly, you have a whole year of "50" to still meet your fit by fifty goals! (At least that is helping me with perspective.) So keep on keeping on!!

Think of all the good things you've been learning and doing for your body! You are definitely working on making this a healthy journey as we go from day to day, and week to week--keeping our eyes on the goal(s) and pressing forward!

Happy Birthday! and Congratulations! on your significant accomplishments!
