May 17, 2021. Tomorrow we will be married 19 years, and I've been a member of Spark People since January, 2011.

Interesting how both marriages and weight loss programmes have their ups and downs, but with both I'm still here.

June 12 - interesting that I would write that just before Spark People posted their notice that the programme as we know it is shutting down... and that it is only for people in the U.S. from now on.

Not happy! but have joined a new programme,, and am looking forward to continuing my weight loss journey there. Hope to see you there.

    Thank you for the flower pot. I love flowers, especially roses!

    Hi Gail,
    The conspiracy to stop me continues :)
    I caught my shoe in an uneven sidewalk, and before I knew it my cheekbone slammed the concrete. I am stiff and bruised, but biding my time, and sticking to my goals.I sure felt silly, but I am thankful that nothing broke! No after effects but headache, nausea, and bruises.

    Your comment on the flowers and the Creator are the very words I have heard from my mother's lips nearly every day growing up. I am blessed to still have her in my life, and she continues to marvel at every beautiful sunset, every bud that blooms, every baby animal that is born, every tree that dons its autumn coat, etc. I credit her with my love of gazing at nature as a spiritual thing.

    Hi! I actually only go into the office 2 times each month and work from home the rest of the time. I am spoiled!
