January 01, 2020 - Is this the year magic will happen? It won't happen unless I make it happen! One is not suppose to give up. You just pick yourself up and brush yourself off and try again. Late 2017 I started watching Food Documentaries. They did motivate and inspire me and I managed to get to ONEDERLAND.

I do encourage all my SparkFriends to watch a few of the Food Doc's. There are quite a few of them out there. I don't know how anyone can watch these Food Doc's without wanting to make better food choices, not just for themselves but their whole families. I definitely will be eating more freggies.

I am starting 2020 with BLC42 Camo Crew and The 2020 Winter 5% Awesome "A" Team.
I will continue my FitBit Challenges with FitBit and SP friends. I will also continue my virtual walks at I am going to try to make use of the Food and Exercise Trackers too.

    Hello Ma,

    Just checking in. I love the picture of you in your little black hat, too cute. Your eyes are the prettiest blue. How is your clover leaf picture changing every week? I also like the picture of Oliver on the bike, such personality in that guy! I'm holding steady for over a week at the same weight. That isn't a problem, I'm loving where I'm at :) . Drop me a line when you have a moment.

    Take care,

    Hi MA!
    Seeing that you added me as a friend brought a smile to my face!
    (doesn't take much to thrill me?)
    THANKS for adding me though! Really makes me feel important & special!
    OLIVER looks SO COOL!
    I had a Conureor about 18 years. She died back in 98 or 99, but i still miss her? She was an onary bird that hated everyone except me? She screamed all the time and we used to yell at each other. Once when i was very sick however, she snuggled up to my neck and was actually licking me with her little leatherette like tongue...i knew she really did care?
    Anyway...i still miss the little witchy thing...
    Oliver looks great! How long have you had him?
    Does he talk?
