myspace

I have an accoount with myspace. I would use this to keep up with friends and family and to post some of my writing. For about the last month, everytime I post a blog, after I hit post, all I get is a blank page with a number in the corner. When you hit back on your browser, you lose the information you just put in there. It is frustrating to say the least. So now I will be using this site and we'll see if anyone shows up from Myspace. The writing is for me, but I'll admit it is nice to hear positive things from people you care about.

South Beach Diet



These are some of the people from the SBD board. They have become like my second family. This week I found out that one of them has passed away. Bev was a young 50 years old, was just having success on the diet, had found the love of her life, Robert, and was making a good life for herself. She found out she had pancreatic cancer about 5 months ago, and passed away on Oct. 8, 2006.

This has shown me that now is the time to live. Not tomorrow, not when I lose the weight, not when there is more time. NOW! You never know what is going to happen tomorrow, when there will be no more time left. I could cry thinking of all the time I have wasted in my 41 years. NOW is the time to do something.

New here

I've decided to start a blog here because the blog on Myspace will not work and I am tired of losing what I write. I also have blogs on Aol, and think it would be easier and simpler to have everything in one spot.
