Fresh Week
Monday, August 06, 2018      1 comments

Even though I stopped considering different parts of my journey as starting a new journey, I do sometimes enjoy a fresh perspective and focus on this long journey. When the journey seems long, sometimes it is fun to shake things up a bit. Inste... Read more
Sometimes things go well...

Since we moved here 4 years ago I couldn't find my favorite pan. It was cast steel, cooked similar to cast iron, a good size & weight for what I needed. We looked EVERYWHERE, OVER & OVER. I came to the conclusion that it got left behind and ... Read more
What Have You Done For Fun?
Thursday, August 02, 2018      1 comments

Life is to be enjoyed, not just tolerated. We sometimes get caught up in all the things we should, shouldn't, could and couldn't do that we don't spend time doing the things we WANT to do. Think like a child and the whole world is available t... Read more
Focus on the Journey
Wednesday, August 01, 2018      1 comments

Goals are good things. But they are not intended to replace the Journey.  The Journey is valuable in itself, not just because it can help accomplish our goals.  In fact, goals should be used to help us in the Journey.  Having a goal to lose weig... Read more
Summer is almost over...

Summer is slipping away and there are so many things I thought would happen but they haven't. I thought about my granddaughter spending more time here and things we may do together. But even when she has been here, we've mostly vegged in front... Read more
Permission to be Delighted!
Monday, July 30, 2018      0 comments

Today I was working on the daily devotionals that I send out and "found" this one from a few years ago. It hit me (again) how easy it is to fall back into old habits. It is easy to get caught up in the "Shoulds" and "Needs" but then forget the "... Read more

Well, I was a bit lax over the weekend. Time to filter & focus again. Filtering out the distractions and focusing on the goals. Happy new week & Enjoy the Journey!... Read more
Too late?
Saturday, July 28, 2018      3 comments

This is in response to @THETUBBYBADGER & others who may feel like it is too late for them.   Too late? Not as long as you are still living, breathing & moving!  Would sooner be better than later? Sure.  But don't let that stop you from starting... Read more
What you think defines you
Saturday, July 28, 2018      5 comments

As a man thinks, so is he. What we think of yourself & our abilities or limitations is what we become. That which you fear has come upon you! What do you think? Do you think you are fat? Do you fear being or becoming fat? Then you are or w... Read more
What Is Your Issue?
Friday, July 27, 2018      2 comments

I've considered weight and diet to be an issue all my life.  I was on my first diet that I remember when I was in kindergarten. But all that dieting just made me fatter and fatter. Step by step I made it all the way up to 410 lbs.  Then I stayed... Read more
Productive Day
Wednesday, July 25, 2018      0 comments

Well, it may not look like a productive day to an outsider, but I think so. I took time to journal for the first time in too long. Then my helper was here so I got a full shower instead of sink bath, walked with crutches, and weighed. Weighing... Read more
Sunrise, Sunset....
Tuesday, July 24, 2018      2 comments

Sunrise, Sunset, swiftly flow the years. One Season following another laden with happiness & tears. It is so easy for me to slide into a rut of a routine instead of really being actively present in my own life. Another day is ending and I reali... Read more

Enjoy the Journey!
Friday, July 20, 2018      3 comments

People have commented about failures. As long as you keep getting up & moving again then you haven't failed. I consider all my life as one journey. There is a beginning and an endpoint. But there are many route options along the way some dire... Read more
Heat & Food?
Thursday, July 19, 2018      4 comments

It has been hot. 109* today outside. Even though I've been inside, the air conditioner hasn't totally kept up. Food just doesn't sound good. Nothing I've considered has struck a chord in me. I had a salad for dinner with some cold chicken br... Read more
