Spring is such a wonderful time for new beginnings! We had a fabulous time on a two week cruise in the Caribbean in February, and now here we are in April already. My husband is determined to lose 10 pounds and that is a good incentive to me as well. So much research points to the benefits of not being overweight. It is a huge challenge in this day of abundance, but one we can't ignore.
I'm aiming to reach my weight goal by May 5th! Maybe even sooner!
I am watching what I eat, working out at the gym hopefully three times a week, and walking often.
I'm 59 years old and my husband and I live in Aldergrove, British Columbia on one acre, which we just put up for sale. I have one daughter, 28, and 4 step-children, ages 42, 40, 38 and 36. We are both retired teachers and have done lots of traveling in the last year.
| current weight: 146.8
Thank you for some beautiful spring flowers! Every year is so different - I posted a photo of this year's "driveway bed"... it's grown like crazy!
Just had to finish choosing paints colors - evidently I'm better than most (on only one thing!) and it only took s-i-x test color quart purchases to home in on the master bedroom color ... then found out I needed to choose for the great room and kitchen, too. Aiyiyiyiyi! Thankfully one of the secondary choices was perfect for the north light in those rooms - funny - the color name is Patience, which is what the builder was using in great quantities with me over this!
I've been good about everything else but paint colors have been torture! ;-D

A few weeks ago, I decided on Curves bc it's enforced strength training to rebuild after WNF and WW style guidance ... but ... I haven't had a chance to go yet! We made a quick trip to Fairhope and when we got back, our chosen Remodeler/builder said she could start as soon as we were ready - yikes. I thought I had until May so scrambling to make decisions. Gary retired last Friday and it's wonderful to have him around to help with all this!
Whatever you're doing to achieve your stunning wedding photo - please sell your secret!! ... was this your daughter's wedding?
I love your hair longer and your face appears slimmer - have you lost since your previous photos?
You truly look 15-20 years younger.

I'm thinking about joining WW for some skinny-minded camaraderie and it's covered by my HSA from my former job! G was frustrated with the tax law change that he couldn't e-file bc of the hsa :-) so he wants me to use it up!! Let's see, what else is on the approved llst ...

Here are a few suggestions for some budget gifts this Christmas. We all can afford lots of these, guaranteed!
A firm handshake to a shaky soul,
A kind word to a lonely person,
A warm smile to the disheartened,
A sincere concern for someone troubled,
A feeling of compassion for the neglected,
A comforting thought for the bereaved,
A respect for the dignity of others,
A defense of the rights of individuals,
A word of witness to help a seeking soul,
A Merry Christmas to all.
