I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in Feb. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I hoped, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 28 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the spring as we usually do. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.
I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    That is a good idea to take an annual photo of them. Then you can see how much they have grown and they can feel like big girls! I hope you are having a great day!

    Hi, Eileen! No, Zoe had never been camping, but Kameryn said that she had. This park didn't have any structured activities but I found one near us that does. That would be fun for the kids sometimes. It looked like they had something going on every hour of the day!

    No more rain is forecast, though it is overcast this afternoon. It was sunny this morning. Supposed to start up with my lessons with Lexi this evening. Forecast high today is 103, so won't be too bad.

    Glad you are home for a bit and can get some rest. We still have Matt's granddaughter here! I didn't know she was staying a week when she came, I thought it was just for the weekend..............

    We were so happy to have the rain! We ended up with 1.2 inches, so it was a significant amount! Just so thankful to have received it! emoticon

    The camping trip with the girls went really well. Got over there and hooked up with no problem and soon discovered what we had forgotten. Also, didn't have any hot water so don't know for sure if we were doing something wrong, or if the water heater doesn't work...... We will have to find that out! It does feel like even our 3/4 ton truck knows there is something back there when pulling that trailer.........Just hope it doesn't use more fuel than it did pulling the horse trailer with 3 horses in it. Will just have to see, I guess. I know one thing, better be ready with the credit card for traveling. The truck is a diesel, too.

    Take care, and hope you and Roger are doing well. Here's counting down Roger's last 4 months! emoticon

    Once in a while,
    though not very often,
    we have an extra special person
    enter our life
    who leaves us wondering
    what in the world
    we could have possibly done
    on the face of this earth
    to deserve them!!
    Thanks so much
    for being such a rare treasure!!!
    HUGS, Nance

    PS Come camp with us on the team!! Perk=no bugs/birds LOL!!
