From the mouth of a 12 year old

Saturday, December 08, 2012

We are sitting around after our aerobic class talking about a missing classmate that was dealing with a crisis that she was handling very well. One of the children listening told us that "we all have the same amount of strength--some of us have to dig deeper to find it". We were so surprised that a smaill child would have so much wisdom. emoticon

We Should Care About Other People

Friday, December 07, 2012

I just read on SparkPeople News of the day that the nurse that was tricked into giving out information about Princess Kate committed suicide.This is very troubling. We should care more about people and their feelings before we make them part of our " joke". We are praying for her family, the jokers and the family of the" jokers" that caused her to think that death was the only way through this crisis. "Be careful how you treat people, everybody you meet is dealing with something". Author Unknown. emoticon

  


What can Two Months do?

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Two months can change your life and send you in a totally different direction. Two months ago, I started SparkPeople and it is wonderful all of the positive things I am doing in my life. First, I am getting closer to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the study of His word. I have more time to study His word and develop a closer relationship with Him because I am not doing emotional eating and planning my next " decadent dessert". I always selected my restaurant menus by the desserts that they featured. Secondly, I have enlarged my repertoire of exercises. Today, instead on just walking five times a week, I take water aerobics two days of week as well as walking and have met some great people. Thirdly, I have tried new foods and new recipes featured on SparkPeople and they are healthy and good. I used to always cook the same meals and have a delicious dessert. Now with Sparkpeople and the Nutrition Tracker, I track everything I eat and I do not feel guilty about anything I eat. Most important of all, my relationships are wonderful with people--all people. My meals do not focus on sweets, I have lost weight and I feel great. It is truly great to be alive. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love you energy & outlook.
Our experiences and goals are very similar. I started with SparkPeople on 10/1/12 and by the end of November, I've lost 15 pounds and feel better than I have in a long time!

We're on our way!

    How awesome for you! I too have found many delicious recipe's on this site and I am not the main cook in the family, my husband is but after looking at recipe's each day, you can't help but venture out of the safety zone and try a few new one's. So glad to hear that you have found several and turning your life around!
Keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Daylight Saving Time

Monday, November 05, 2012

emoticon Autumn is a beautiful time of the year and the time of the year that we turn our clocks back, replace the batteries in our smoke detectors and reflect on the wonderful grace of God that allows us to enjoy another one of His beautiful seasons. We thank God that seasons changes that gently remains us that if we are not where we want to be--to just hold on, be encouraged for this time will change. Praise God for gentle reminders. emoticon emoticon

10 Pounds Lighter

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Wow, I have lost 10 pounds and I feel wonderful! The weight is just one advantage of the Sparkpeople program, however it is amazing how I look at food and how I make selections for my meals. I am cooking new recipes, selecting wonderful new foods and checking food labels as if browsing for my next novel. I tell everyone that I meet about Sparkpeople--it is wonderful and a lifestyle changer for sure when you are ready to make a change. I am so glad that I learned about the program. We can do It--yes we can.. emoticon emoticon emoticon
