What joy I felt watching the video of the dog playing in a pile of leaves. Of course, what he was feeling was pure joy also. He is a good reminder that joy can be found in the simplest of things and activities. As we travel on this wellness jour... Read more
Sneaky Calories!
Tuesday, February 03, 2015      0 comments

I should have known better. I did know better, but I acted without checking my own knowledge about how many calories can be in a piece of candy. I ate a Lindor Dark Chocolate Truffle that was offered to me. How many calories could there be in th... Read more
Water, Water, Everywhere!

I think I may have spent most of my life in a state of mild dehydration. Not only is drinking enough water a challenge for me, but drinking enough of anything is hard. Now that I am once again trying to drink 8 cups or more of water each day, an... Read more

Glad all of you who went to or hosted Super Bowl parties had a great time today. That said, I also am glad that those of you who decided to skip the celebrating and relax for the day enjoyed your day. I chose the latter for myself and know it wa... Read more
Give Me Strength
Saturday, January 31, 2015      0 comments

Today is a day for practicing a skill that I have never been good at. That is the skill of letting go of the frustration and disappointment I feel when a family member or friend does something that is self-destructive. Intellectually I know that... Read more
Thankful for Health

We humans often fail to appreciate and protect the things in life that are part of the status quo. I was guilty of that when I let my weight creep up and up. When I was in my teens and again in my early thirties, I was too thin. I looked like a ... Read more
Too much bad news!
Thursday, January 29, 2015      0 comments

I like to think of myself as well informed. I read our local newspaper from front to back, watch two national news broadcasts, and most days watch a local broad cast. I read a variety of magazines, both news- and women's issues-related. Most day... Read more
Having the Right Stuff
Wednesday, January 28, 2015      0 comments

How well am I learning that it is critical to have the right kinds of foods, and not have the wrong kinds of foods, in cupboards and refrigerator. Before the holidays, we bought the kinds of foods that we limit ourselves to indulging only once o... Read more
Why Can't I Blog?
Wednesday, January 28, 2015      0 comments

Not sure what I am doing wrong, but every time (but one) that I have written a blog the page either closed before I could post it or I lost part of what I typed and had to recreate it. I believe this situation is being caused by a wonderful bit ... Read more
Mood Better Today
Tuesday, January 27, 2015      0 comments

Had a chance to spend some relaxing time with my daughter today, and I found it helped brighten my mood. I am not sure why yesterday was so difficult for me, but I do know I don't want to spend many of my days in that frame of mind. Continuing t... Read more

Just updated my status, and because I want to be fully truthful in my reporting on SparkPeople, I decided an accurate status for today is that I am a bit down. I am not sure why that is, but one factor is the very cloudy weather. Another may be ... Read more

Time to thank everyone at SparkPeople for all of the features of this website. I am benefiting from everything more than I imagined I would. I haven't made astonishing progress toward my weight loss goal yet, but I am learning a lot about nutrit... Read more

My name is LillyRose, and I am an addict, that is addicted to not drinking coffee. After many years of trying not to admit it, now is the time to come clean. I am the only non-coffee drinker among all of my friends and immediate family. The sham... Read more
I Can Do This!
Friday, January 23, 2015      0 comments

Today has been a good reminder that this journey only happens one day at a time. One bad day doesn't ensure that one fails in reaching a goal any more than one good day ensures that a person will be successful in reaching a goal. As I am s... Read more
