I am already missing a bunch of you and especially the threads and the teams. The support here was amazing. A special thanks to Chris for making Spark People possible for so long.

My Goals:

July 9, 2021 only 6/10s of a pound from Onederland. WooHoo! Never give up.

January 2021: I spiraled up after last entry in May. Then got back on the wagon in July and managed to lose 28 pounds. I have maintained that loss from Halloween through now despite the Holidays. Huge win in my book.

May 23, 2020 Must admit I have put more than half of the 50 pounds I lost back on, but the good news is that I have maintained at least a 20 pound loss since I lost the initial 50 pounds nine years ago. So that is still a win.

2017 Improve my health. Simplify my life. Pay lots of attention to the grandchildren. Walk 5K 4/8/17 I walked 5 5Ks in 2017 and took a cross country road trip with Buddy.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome. No it never becomes easier, this will be the tenth year. I can't believe its been almost a whole decade that I've lived without my grandfather. He was young, like 52, or 54. Something young like that. My grandmother (his wife) just went through a battle with breast cancer in Jan. 2007. His brother is losing a battle with lung cancer also. Uncle Harry has had a lung removed because it was full of cancer. Then he went to have a check up and found out his other remaining lung was full of cancer, so he's in the process of moving to North Carolina to die, he says. And that was back at the end of Jan. and we haven't heard from him since. We also lost Aunt/Cousin Judy this past year. She either had leukima or lung cancer, we forgot.

    Is Buddy your dog? He's so cute! What is he? Those are sheep right? They look soft and fluffy. Oh and what kind of flower is that? Its gorgeous!

    The little creator. Believe me it is too heavy to go anywhere. I am lucky not to be wearing the kitchen sink I guess.
