MY JOURNEY...

5-9-14 I see that I had blogged almost exactly 3 yrs ago today. I really have moved towards my health goals in that time. And I now have lost the last 2 lbs of 5-6 that I recently gained since taking a break in November from weight loss. I'm setting up my fridge & cupboards to support my weight loss goals and I've done some walking recently in spite of hip pain. I'm getting busy applying for jobs too! - SO! This is all very encouraging to be able to move forward again.

This is all very encouraging to be able to move forward again.

To change our behavior, we must change our way of thinking. I'm going to consciously work to FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE. What CAN I do? Eat more veggies & fruits, less carbs & processed foods. Eat less. Walk more. Look for something enjoyable in every part of this. Be consistent. Remember to have an attitude of gratitude.

And then I will be LOSING WEIGHT and getting healthier!

Personal Information:
I live in Eugene, Oregon, originally from Portland. I have one daughter, adopted at 8, and 3 young adult grandkids.

My toy poodles keep me company, litter sisters Daisy & Dottie. They are now almost 10 yrs old & in great health.

Other Information:
I have recently received a wake-up call about the need to lead a healthier life due to my own health issues and my family history. Although I've been working to transform my life in other ways to make it more personally happy and satisfying (emotional health), I haven't yet worked on my physical health. My mom worked very hard to stay as healthy as possible until her recent passing at almost age 93, and I want to follow in her footsteps. I hope to have a long and healthy life, living with love & joy no matter what the circumstances.
