I now have 6 grandchildren and I want them to remember me as the "FUN" grandma. They and my hubby are some of my reasons for working so hard. But the main reason is me. I am not happy with all the meds and want to be fit again. I decided it was time to update my page have been in this a while, met my goal and didn't do well with maintenance. LOL! Came back and taking all the lessons I learned the first go around and adding new ones along the way took off the pounds again. I went over some of my old blogs and really have seen changes in me as well. I am more positive and the challenges I now face are because often I didn't take care of things a lot sooner.The kids are all grown and all have kids of their own. I don't want to be the grandma that sits and watches her soap operas all day, I want to be the "FUN" grandma. Nothing like playing like a kid to say farewell to all the pounds. I am learning to like breakfast and I do meditation and journal each night. I am determined and positive about my ability to succeed. After all I did it once and I have the entire Sparkpeople family to help with that. Totally into all the challenges to choose from and unlike that old dog, I can learn new tricks. I have issues with my back and that makes it hard some days to do all I want to do but I do what I can. I also have the knowledge that this is a journey not a race.. Small goals lead to bigger ones. Together we all can succeed!!!

Favorite Quotes include "Happiness is not getting what you want but wanting what you've got" Garth Brooks. "Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar.
So, stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you mustn't quit".

    Thanks for stopping by. I haven't been on for the past few days, but I have still been staying on the right track. I joined another member in a not eating candy challenge, and I have been doing good. I lost another pound, so it looks like I am loosing 1 pound a week. That is so cool to me. Well, I guess i will chat with you later, I have to still check out my teams to catch up on all of the gossip. Have a great day!!!!!
