Thanksgiving Day – 9 years of Maintenance

How ironic that the day Americans stuff themselves with food was the day in 2009 when I reached my goal weight! Although I am not active on Spark anymore, I want to assure anyone who remembers me that I am still successfully following Spark principles. (Details in last 2 blogs)

Joe and I have just returned from a trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands, a trip we had to cancel in 2016 because of his emergency brain surgery. He is fine which is another reason to be thankful. As I wrote back then, his doctors said that if he hadn’t been “in good shape” he wouldn’t have survived the 2 massive subdural hematomas that squashed into brain into a ball.

This was our 8th trip this year beginning in the Adriatic on New Year’s Day. Then the Baltic countries, whale watching off New England, 2 trips to the Caribbean

And tour of the UK with my chorale to sing in the great cathedrals as well as the source of the music of our youth

Yes, “Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes”

Happy Thanksgiving to all on Spark.
Stick with the program. Your future self will thank you.

    I am so happy to see you! I started to log out and my screen refreshed and saw you on my feed and thought..."whoa, hold up" emoticon

    Thanks for checking in! You were one of my early influences on Spark. So happy to see you and your husband are doing well and traveling. What a dream trip and great photos. I loved the Beatles photo!

    A very happy Thanksgiving to both of you!
