I signed up again for another 5% weight loss challenge starting Mar 26th, and continuing for 8 weeks. I am a Spirited Underdog again. If you want to maintain, or lose weight, these challenges are the way to go!!! This time I am up a couple of pounds more than the starting weight last time. Time to buckle down before I continue to gain. My husband thinks I am the Most Positive Person he has ever seen. I do try to think positive and keep negativity out of my life. Even if it means no news channels haha. I live in Washington State. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh? I''m thinking that getting use to being focused on what I eat each day, will make it different this time. My family includes my husband, 2 Moluccan cockatoos (more trouble than my children were) and a Pomchi . I have 3 daughters, 2 live in the Seattle WA. area and Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. She is pregnant and due Feb 24 2016. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 22, 17, 5 and 3. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

    SWEET having the grand with you !! ENJOY !! ENJOY ! ENJOY !! So much MORE fun than when they are your own ! LOL NO DOUBT you have heard the "You weren't like THAT when "I" was growing up ! U were STRICT and now with the grandkids you are NOT !" LOL that's just for giggles and kicks !!

    I have a friend who comes with me to the wound clinic, but it's RARE she speaks up, and when she does the things she says either aren't accurate or we had already covered them that day. She's a very nice person, but she'd MUCH Rather make others laugh than to stay focused. They are used to her now,,,, cause she can be quite funny. It DOES lighten the atmosphere. Often I need that.
