Today is the first day of the rest of my life! As a Weight Watcher's Lifetime Member, I lost 50+ pounds in the 1970s. IT'S TIME TO GET BACK ON TRACK!

Ecclesiates 3:1-11 NIV
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
9 What do workers gain from their toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering." - Ida Scott Taylor, American Author

My Goals:
I need to lose at least 35 pounds and exercise at least 30 minutes a day 3 days a week even if it is only getting off my butt and walking.

Because of back and lung issues it is difficult for me to exercise. Some days it's all I can do to get out of bed.


My Program:
I am trying to cut carbs and between meal snacks and be more mindful of portion size. I need to get back in the habit of logging my food at each meal.

I'm taking my journey step by step, one day at a time.

Personal Information:
My name is Lillian - Annie to all the littles in the family.

I was born & raised on a small farm in Mid-Michigan north of Lansing which is still owned by our family.

For almost 50 years I have lived in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan.

I retired in February, 2010 after working for 50 years. I started working - babysitting - when I was 10 years old. I have worked as a babysitter, pickle sorter, typist, receptionist, accounts receivable clerk, legal secretary, office manager and administrative assistant.

I am married to my best friend - we started dating in 1989 but didn't get married until 2000. My husband has numerous health issues so I am now a caregiver for him.

I have one son who is married to a wonderful woman who I'm proud to call "daughter" and one granddaughter from my son's previous marriage. My granddaughter got married in April in a small wedding before her husband who is in the Marine Reserves left for Afghanistan.


Other Information:
My favorite color is Purple - any shade from dark to light. I love all purple flowers but my favorite is purple roses.

I am an avid reader. I use tablet e-readers with both the Nook & Kindle Apps. Since I don't like to spend a lot of money on books,

I also like to do Sudoku and word search puzzles and play Yahtzee.

I used to like to do yard work and work in my flower beds but because of lung problems and back pain I unable to do that anymore.
