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. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

emoticon Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.

H appiness if found within not in people and things.

A cceptance of the present regardless of what fears/inner demons you may
be facing

P ersistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may
experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

P atience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials
and tribulations life often presents to us unexpectedly.

I nside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a s
smile on your face

N ever give up yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart
and a positive mind set

E ndless love and happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

S pirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural
state of being

S trive in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights
experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live
as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow.

Hi! Thanks for the blog commoents on my turtle pen. Yes indeed, I dug up my three box turtles from hibernation (ground was still frozen), thawed them out slowly for a few days, and then we drove them to New Mexico. They have adapted just fine and like their new digs.

Thanks for the comment on the FitBit! A ZIP requires a battery and according to them it should last 6 months which mine never has, it usually goes 3 months but these past few months I've changed it within a month and a half. I've had enough of the battery switching so I am going on Amazon and getting a pedometer. Those seem to work better than trackers still. Maybe I'll switch back in the future or use a pedometer for my phone instead~
