Hey Sparkers, Hope you're having a wonderful weekend and doing something that truly makes you happy. Once again I feel I'm at a crossroads and undecided on which way I want to go. I've been doing pretty good weight wise since the first of the... Read more

Over the last 40 plus years I've been on numerous diets and lost a huge amount of weight. And until menopause hit, I managed to keep most of it off. But once menopause hit, and it hit me HARD, all bets were off. In the course of a little over a ... Read more

We're into the first 11 days of the new year and I know many have jumped onto the weight loss train with plenty of hopes and dreams. Sadly, by March, about 65% will be ready to call it quits because they haven't lost X amount of weight, so they ... Read more

I started 2020 weighing 3.2 lbs. more than I did on Jan. 1-2019, but this doesn't upset me. I know on New Year's Day I had a little more sodium than I should have so when I weighed the next morning, of course the numbers were up. Considering wha... Read more

Today makes 10 years since Bob almost died and had to get the pacer/defib combo, and went on oxygen. Our lives really changed after that. But thank God he's managed to keep going even though he has more bad days than good. Bob would be a lot ... Read more

I haven't been doing very well with my "diet" this whole Summer but I'm going to really work to make Autumn show progress. I took my measurements last night and it was a wake up call as I had put on almost 4 inches in my waist since June. I knew... Read more
Hard Cast is Off

Saw Ortho doctor this morning and the heavy hard cast was removed and now I'm wearing a lightweight brace that I can remove to bathe, wash dishes, etc. I was told I only needed to use the brace if I felt the wrist needed more support. My wrist i... Read more
Time to Make Changes

Not real happy today. Saw the Orthopedic doctor this morning, and whereas the right elbow fracture is healing ok, the left wrist isn't. He took new x-rays and it seems the break was worse than first thought. He says the bone isn't knitting back,... Read more
