  • Dreams come true ---

    6/14/2021 9:22:07 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    Doing really good on WW right now. Just .8 of a pound over goal. Hope to keep going. It may never be easy for me, but I will never give up. I just like living at a normal weight so much better than being overweight. First of all, I never dreamed I could lose the weight I carried for over 5 deca... Read more

    6/13/2021 7:28:47 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    The sunrise over Lake Hollingsworth was spectacular for the Summer Sunrise Watermelon 5K #1 2021 yesterday. One of the Lakeland Runner's Club members took pictures right about the half way mark of the race. I did tell Gwen to smile at the end and look at the camera for a picture. I didn't warn h...

  • Summer Sunrise Watermelon 5K #1 2021

    6/12/2021 1:15:04 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    Gwen ran her first 5K in 43:39. There were 30 girls in her age group (10-14) and she is only 10, but she felt really good finishing before 6 others. She had set her goal "to finish" and surpassed that for sure! I ran with her and that time was 4th in my age group, but I loved runni... Read more

I am also so grateful that Spark is giving us enough time for proper goodbyes and enough time to save our blogs. It's been a hard day r... Read more

He will eat a salad before his sandwich and fries. I have whole grain bun thawing for him. That works. I g... Read more

    I soaked white kidney beans overnight and cooked them almost soft before I added a big onion, celery, carrots, a can of no salt diced tomatoes and some leftover tomatoes that did have some salt. Black pepper, cumin, garlic, a bit of Italian seasonings and I was happy with it. There for a while I... Read more

All my live I had been skinny-minny with a big butt... 334 Since we were always out and about and had a very active lifestyle weight had never really been an issue. But when I hit 40, whi...

By the end she was happy to go slowly. We ran at a park I did not know, Lake Crago Dog Park. We ran all around there and the... Read more
