Last Diet

At 60 I feel it is time to get real about my weight, I have been yo yo dieting for 30 years, I will never diet again, I am now enjoying a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition and exercise. At this time I am at the top of my healthy weight (according to WW) by Jan 2007 I intend to reach my goal (about the middle), and I will stay at this goal with the help of Sparkpeople for the rest of my life.

Hi TalkieBarb! You left a comment on my blog the other day and I just wanted to respond that yes, I am from Calgary too. It's been quite the crazy couple of days. We live in the SE and I take my youngest son to school - every day across the Glenmore causeway. Honestly, today was the worse day so far. I think because it was nice this morning people were not driving cautiously and there were 3 major accidents on Glenmore - I suspect due to black ice as there were several treacherous spots on the way. Took us 35 minutes to get from Elbow to Crowchild!
Hope you survived the winter storm. We have one elm tree in the backyard that sustained some damage. Our neighbourhood took quite the hit though as we are in Deer Run which is an older neighbourhood. My husband's truck had the side mirror swiped off by a falling tree at the office as well
Take care. Thank goodness for the return of more summer/early fall weather!
