Welcome to my castle

My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.

I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.

Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.

Hi, my friend,

It's been a while so thought I would stop by and say hi. I hope all is well with you. Did u ever buy a new home?
My only news is that I went to Utah on vacation to visit my sister and didn't have a vacation. I ended up in the hospital twice while in Utah but I am getting better now and back home.

Jeanne,
So glad you joined Grain Brain.
DH and I are off all prescription medications, feel well and healthy. Weight loss was a side effect of eating the nutrition our bodies need and staying away from the poisons.
Read a lot. I keep reading and everything I have read for a couple years points to this grain free, paleo, primal eating. Still reading.
Hugs,
Dayle
