Paul the SparkPeople programmer says:
Some days I don't have a positive attitude about working out. On those days I work out without a chipper attitude.

I feel way thinner than I look, I'm shocked when I see pictures of myself.

I'm seeking:
* HEALTH* Longevity* Wellbeing* Confidence* Sex Appeal

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.
- Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

Goals accomplished so far:
I shop regular sizes. I can walk up the stairs at the hockey arena easily. I have lost 27 pounds & gone from size 18 to size 12. I am 54% of the way towards my goal weight. My son & I eat much more healthfully.

    Happy Birthday my friend.
    Sorry I missed it.
    Been busy volunteering and running errands.
    Monday I start training as a book seller at the college.
    It will be for two months. But if they like me I will stay on.
    Hope that you have a good day!

    Thanks so much for dropping by to comment on my blog!

    There's nothing at all wrong with milk and cereal for dinner - we've done that many times (especially when we've been out wandering the back-country all day). You're welcome to drop by any time to help play with some other dinner foods!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!
