Square dancing really burns calories (but we're over an hour from a club now).

Gotta Do It

March 1, 2012 - Back at it again. I've got to do something to keep motivated and to have some accountability. So here I am!

My Goals:
My main goal is to get down to my goal weight by this time next year. With the Lord's help, I know I can do it since that's less than one pound a week.

My Program:
I'm going to try doing the SP menu plans but of course will have to adapt it a bit for foods I don't like or have on hand.

Personal Information:
I live in the far NE corner of Oregon in a gorgeous area of farmland and high mountains. Our small town has a population of just over 1,000 people so is pretty small but we love it that way. I work part-time as an office assistant in a small local church and also work occasionally as a substitute cook for two senior meal sites in our county.

Other Information:
My husband and I have a "blended family" of nine kids but they are now grown - between 43-49 years old. (A set of twins in there too.) We also have 12 grandchildren plus six step-grand kids! Our first great grandchild is due in September!
We actually met at a square dance and still do it when we can but it's over an hour's drive to the closest club! Great exercise! We've been married for almost 26 years.

Well, I haven't really been back in quite awhile, except for class reunions a few years back. Think I told you I graduated from Crater and boy, that was a big shock to see how it had changed! We lived just two places down from Old Stage Rd. but my dad developed our land into a housing plot but our old farm house still is in the middle and has been well taken care of. I may possibly return this summer for another class reunion but it's a very long "journey" from this far NE corner of the state!!
So, so with my WW program altho' I do like the new Points Plus. It makes me feel like I get more to eat instead of the 19 daily points before. Ha...sort of like cutting off one end of the blanket and sewing it onto the other end to make it longer! I think I lost .5 lbs. last week but at least I'm tracking most of the time., The online program helps with that because it's more accurate but takes longer than just writing it down. How did you do this week??

Hi there. I am in Medford, but also lived in CP and GH. When was the last time that you've been through CP? Beal lane is only partially rural anymore. Any success with the WW yet?

Hi back. Yes, I do like WW and especially the new points program! I'm back at it again...totally lost count of how many times I've done this! Now I have a buddy who attends the meetings and we're trying to hold each other accountable - not easy! Do you go to WW meetings? My brother lives in GPass but is on a job in Hood River for awhile. We grew up in rural C.Point.
The weather out here is cold and snowy - pretty typical, I guess. Do you know where Wallowa Lake is? We live in "God's country" - really! I love the small town life - sort of like where I grew up but of course that's all changed so much. I haven't been back since a class reunion a couple of years ago (Crater HS and St. Mary's - one year). Have a blessed Sunday tomorrow emoticon . Where do you go to church?
