Time to Get Serious!

Hi, I'm Linda and live in Central North Carolina, and many things have changed since I first came here in 2011. No more horse farm or taking care of my grandson. They moved to be closer to the country club and I moved into the town of Cary - where I can walk to Trader Joe's and lots of other stuff. It's been quite an adjustment and I don't really like having all the extra costs and responsibility of owning property again.

Hi, I'm Linda and live in Central North Carolina, and many things have changed since I first came here in 2011. No more horse farm or taking care of my grandson. They moved to be closer to the country club and I moved into the town of Cary - where I can walk to Trader Joe's and lots of other stuff. It's been quite an adjustment and I don't really like having all the extra costs and responsibility of owning property again.

My weight loss journey was going well, even though my loss was due to a controversial method, until my thyroid went crazy in 2013 and I ended up in the hospital with atrial fibrillation. My endocrinologist was not happy with how fast the anti-thyroid drug was bringing me back to normal, so she doubled the dose, which threw me from hyper to hypo, and fiddled with things a few more times, so I felt like a yo-yo. So I gained a lot of the weight back and have not so far been successful in losing it. But I want to be healthy and that will be my focus.

My Goals:
to be as healthy as possible and remain diabetes-free. I am no longer prediabetic and intend to remain that way.

My Program:
I need to get back into an exercising program of some sort. That went away when I moved. It was a very stressful time. I'm eating on a LCHF plan now and feel it's working for me.

These days I hail from NC, but I was born in Philly and lived all over eastern PA, Vermont and Northern VA.

Other Information:
I love to read mysteries and have become a rabid trivia buff. I'm an event organizer for one of my Meetup groups and enjoy arranging outings for this group, from which I've made many close friends.

Our relationship with ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive, and love ourselves is reflected back to us in all our outer experiences and relationships.

wishing your SIL good luck. The job market really is difficult! But schooling should open the doors a little wider.

You're right. It sure doesn't sound like she should be alone. Hard, as we can't force things.

Life is pretty good! Maintaining my weight and health and that makes me happy.

Hugs! Any more cruises planned??

OH it's been an interesting year. Mom has Alzheimer's. She broke her hip in February and both she and Dad are now living here with us. The Alzheimer's progresses, sadly. But all in all she's pretty happy.

Otherwise, doing well here!

HUGS
