Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months.

Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

I am mother of 3 sons, step mother of 1 son, mother in law to 3 wonderful women, grandmother to 5, soon to be ...

thank you for your thoughtful comment on my blog - i realized of course when i wrote the blog that it really isn't so "all you have to do" for anyone, it's just one of those foolish thoughts that i recognize - and the closest i come to the "unfairness" feeling described in the book.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and your words really make you think about the addiction we have to food, mine is more the goodies. One day at a time.

ouch! so much for whole foods' prepared dishes! the main dish i had was packaged from a seattle restaurant with the nutrition declaration stated, so that wasn't so bad. but the rest - thought-provoking indeed!

THANK you for your comment on today's blog! Nell, it's true, "Great minds DO think alike"! I have been thinking the same thing...I think I shall go through Beck time and time again always keeping it FRESH in my mind! I don't have enough years left to be maintaining nearly as long as you but it's still, "better LATE than Never!" You are the MATRIARCH of the maintainers on Spark!
