I’ve been thinking about what’s happened with my weight since August 2012, when I reached lifetime membership at weight watchers. To get there, I was helped by both weight watchers and SparkPeople. I have not gone above 156 lbs since, but a frie... Read more

I am reaping a lot of good from hanging around you longer time maintainers. In fact, you all helped me have a good report at the doctor's yesterday. Thanks to what I've learned from you, I've had an easier time with my weight through a couple ha... Read more

I got the privilege of going on a short birthday trip with a girlfriend the last few days. (Our birthdays are eleven days apart.) Went to a new to me place--St. Joseph, Michigan. Got to see some different from central Indiana views. Saw a s... Read more
The Role of Books...
Wednesday, June 21, 2017      9 comments

Books have been a lifeline to me. When I became a Christian at around 21, the King James Bible became my first teacher. As I grew, I learned that sometimes other versions say things in a way that I find easier to understand and obey, but King Ja... Read more

I had a fall at the end of March. Fell over a speed bump on to my right arm. Purple between the elbow and shoulder. Just started driving again on Wednesday. Arm was weak, knocked out the muscle. For over a week I had to lift my right arm with my... Read more

Got beautiful purple crocuses coming up all over my garden. Spending the morning at Starbucks. It's going to be in the mid-sixties today, and it's sunny right now. I love early spring! It's a promise of new life to come. I'm looking and pr... Read more

I love the warmth and sunshine before we go back to winter later today. The warmth has caused green shoots to spring up in my garden, and I see them as a down payment on spring. I love the ease with which I have been able to just get in my car a... Read more

I have been mildly depressed on and off for 45 years or so, partly compounded by the events I mentioned in my last blog. But I'm finally learning how to rejoice and enjoy the gift of life even during sad periods. Life is not meant to be con... Read more

I am so thankful that I have time to work out trouble spots in my life in areas such as fitness, grieving rightly so that I grow and other areas. I hurt my wrist last fall, and am now slowly coming back to weight training and more exercise... Read more
Consistency-a Jewel Worth Pursuing
Friday, January 06, 2017      8 comments

I've been thinking about the word "consistency". I never have liked that word, because it seems dull and boring. It can feel like a straitjacket to me. I used to live doing whatever I felt like when I felt like it years ago, but total spontaneit... Read more

Had an eventful fall after a great summer of getting down weight-wise in early summer. On September 30th however, everything came to a screeching halt when I fell and broke my fall with my dominant wrist. It was either a very bad sprain or a hai... Read more

It seems right now that this year has just flown by! Had a great time with my son and his family Thanksgiving week, but had little exercise. I came back and started up the exercise on Sunday. Trying to compensate ahead of time for tonight's Chr... Read more

September has arrived, but at least in central Indiana we are having a warm streak and it feels very summery. All those good intentions from the beginning of the year are still my intentions. My weight still looks more like what I weigh in winte... Read more
