Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!


2017 and I am back again... up and down the same 5 lbs, this time on the higher side of 200, depressing since I had stayed just under 200 for almost a year.
Slim is where I wanted to be in 201 & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide g

T V dinners that came in aluminum trays. I remember when some of them came with soup.

Ne-Hi grape soda and when they took the red dye out of cream soda

A candy bar called 7-Up. It had seven different sections and each section was a different kind







Blessings on Your Journey,

WOW, rotary phones, having to get up and change the TV channel.. only had 3 of those and if you were lucky, could pull in PBS too. 8 track tapes, records and records players. When cassette tapes were the new biggest thing and you could rewind the tape and hear your favorite song again and again!

Emily...What an awful memory from the 1st grade. In grade school I had a friend who stammered. Guess who was called on every afternoon to read out loud? This girl was humiliated daily by the teacher, and snickering kids.

Getting paddled in school (1st grade) for "lying" and saying I did not leave the milk on the table and the teacher said I did. One of my first memories, haha. Good lord, can you imagine what would happen these days if a teacher hit a kid?

I also remember staying up late with my Dad and watching Mork and Mindy and Cheers.

Where we used to live, a bit over a year ago, teenagers did come around to shovel driveways or they brought their snowblowers to do it, and they did have to climb our roof to shovel that off due to the dangerous load. But more likely, there are people who usually worked in the forests, cutting lumber, and they would come to your door with machinery to get the snow off of your driveway, rather than the young men. The men had those small cats that lifted and shoved the snow away, faster than any person could do it. It was a way to make money for people who couldn't work in the woods in winter.
