  • Time and Dreams

    11/14/2019 6:32:30 PM, by MSBEKANATOR

    Do you ever feel that time is racing by? I cannot believe that we are already at the midway point of November. I am not sure I can fit all the unfulfilled hopes and dreams for 2019 into the next 6 weeks, lol. But I can stop and take a look at where I started, and where I am now, and be grate... Read more

  • Survival of the off days

    11/8/2019 4:17:35 AM, by DONNA05121

    I stayed on track these past few days, at least eating wise. The scale has been kind and I've "relost" more of the pounds. I'm not back to my lower weight but at least the numbers are going in the right direction. Now i need to add my walking and weights into my days. ... Read more

    With the change in season, I need more sleep. For the last 5 nights, I have got 7 hours of sleep and I am feeling so much better (thanks to Benadryl). Today I had a nap before dinner. Last night puppy slept 12 hours after she played outside all afternoon with our other dog Royce, then at night, we w... Read more

  • Confession of a chocoholic

    11/4/2019 4:22:11 AM, by DONNA05121

    Well one slip led to another, one bite led to a bag and two months later I'd regained twelve of the hard won pounds I'd lost. I got on the scale the other day and it read 219 and I realized I was about to be back into the 220s. I'd been slowly regaining the weight (still recording it or at least see... Read more

  • Sunday - Plant Seeds for New Beginnings & Rock Stars

    10/27/2019 6:23:53 PM, by KALISWALKER

    Sunday was the last church service for Colebrook Church. Sadly our church has closed after 72 years. It's been the heartbeat of the community, but over the years attendance dropped off as people moved, died, lost interest and the community became more diverse. Sadly it got down to about 30-40 regula... Read more

  • JP is Me

    10/23/2019 7:53:46 PM, by JPISME

    Hello, it's amazing to me how easy it is to fall back in step with what I am supposed to be doing. I'm not eating the way I should but tracking is easy. I didn't exercise today but the past two days were logged. I've already told myself "it's okay, tomorrow you will do better." ... Read more

  • Do More of What Makes Me Happy! New Puppy!

    10/17/2019 10:26:58 PM, by KALISWALKER

    We went to the Portland OR area for 4 nights in our RV. The first 2 days we rested, shopped at Woodburn Premium Outlets with 114 stores (only shopped at 6 or 7), ate authentic Mexican food in the #1 restaurant twice. It was a holiday weekend so traffic to the shopping center was insane. Fortunately,... Read more
