I enjoy blogging. Really! But for some time now I haven't felt inspired....haven't really had anything all that interesting to write about. And I've been so busy with life in general that I haven't been Sparking as much as I used to. But tod... Read more

"Did I ever tell you you're my hero.....?"

Sunday, July 13, 2014      8 comments

Well, I have to share some exciting (exciting for ME anyway, lol) news. Those of you who are teammates of mine and have listened to me rant on and on are probably sick of hearing about my computer woes, and I had finally chalked my crashed ... Read more

The Sun is Peeking Through!

Saturday, March 23, 2013      14 comments

Warning....this is a long post....partly repetitive, partly autobiographical. It's not really humorous, but it makes me feel good to pour out my heart and my feelings. It's been a long, cold winter. I live in Minnesota...the winters... Read more

My husband is a saint....but does this ever happen to you?

Sunday, February 24, 2013      13 comments

I wanted to put this out there right off the husband is a saint. He has never, EVER said anything negative about my weight, or any of my other shortcomings. He has never made me feel like I was anything less than perfect in his ey... Read more

Bringing back an old idea

Tuesday, February 12, 2013      13 comments

Below is an excerpt from a Facebook post I made earlier today: I loved my job at Mesaba. There's not a better bunch of stand-up people out there as the group I was proud to call my co-workers. Maybe that's the biggest reason that in the ... Read more

I was going to send you confetti.....

Monday, January 07, 2013      17 comments

Um, Happy New Year? I'd like to know what happened to the first week of the we are entering the second week, and I haven't even gotten around to wishing my Spark Buddies a Happy 2013 yet! I was going to send you all a goodie a... Read more

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

Monday, December 10, 2012      11 comments

As most of you know, I'm currently laid off from my job. And loving it. And struggling with knowing that I do have to go back to work...eventually... BUT, there is a definite up-side to all this. For the first time ever, I am not trying ... Read more

Semi-Annual Closet Switcheroo

Sunday, October 07, 2012      9 comments

I started October full of motivation and excitement to get "back in the saddle." I've been watching my food intake and eating my rainbow (or at least 5 sixths of it) most days, doing 2-mile daily walks plus a minimum of 10 extra minutes of exer... Read more

Pink's a color.....right?

Thursday, September 27, 2012      14 comments

As many of you might know, last weekend we hosted a 94th birthday party for my mom at our house. Her health is failing, but more so her mind, and I decided that we needed to celebrate this as a milestone. In my heart, I doubt she'll be with us... Read more

I want to be overweight!

Thursday, September 06, 2012      19 comments

Yes! I do! Really....I want to be Overweight! Only in a place such as SparkPeople can a person blog such a thing and get nods of approval from her readers. Why do I want to be Overweight? Because I've been Obese for so long now. Obesit... Read more

Finding the Silver Lining

Wednesday, August 15, 2012      13 comments

As I'm fond of saying, blogging can be cathartic. And blog I did. I just wrote out three long paragraphs from the heart. From deep inside my soul. And then......I deleted it. Why? Because just writing it out made me feel so much better. A... Read more

Back to the Blog

Sunday, August 05, 2012      10 comments

I used to blog regularly. It was motivating, it was sometimes cathartic, it always made me feel good. It was for ME, but I also have something of a gift for writing, (though some may disagree....) and somewhere along the way some of my b... Read more

It's raining, it's pouring!

Saturday, December 17, 2011      16 comments

Well, when it rains it pours....last night we had our Christmas party with my side of the family. We rent out the party room of a hotel and have pot luck, games, etc. Lots of fun. John and I drove separately, as he came straight from work. S... Read more

Did I Really?

Saturday, November 05, 2011      12 comments

A blog about weight loss for a change! It seems that when I take to my keyboard to post a blog, it's usually about something happening in my family life, or my work life, or at any rate,something sort of unrelated to my weight loss journey. (O... Read more

Last week at this time.....I was in the Honolulu airport.....

Saturday, October 08, 2011      11 comments

Oh my, what an experience! First, I want to say that I had a wonderful time visiting my son and my new daughter-in-law in Hawaii, where he is stationed as an Aircraft Rescue Firefighter at the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay. They took ... Read more
