WHY NOW?

I've struggled with weight all my life. My childhood memories center on diets, candy, restriction, deprivation, hurtful remarks by other children and teachers. I've never had a healthy relationship with food. So now I'm 65 years old and I've lost track of how many times this plan, this diet, this exercise program, this whatever was going to be the answer for my weight issues.

I've struggled with weight all my life. My childhood memories center on diets, candy, restriction, deprivation, hurtful remarks by other children and teachers. I've never had a healthy relationship with food. So now I'm 65 years old and I've lost track of how many times this plan, this diet, this exercise program, this whatever was going to be the answer for my weight issues. Although there have been different motivations to lose weight through the years, now that I've just had my "officially elderly" birthday, I have health issues that will keep me from living to be 100 if I don't lose weight. I'm also retiring 12-7-2010 and wouldn't it be nice to start retirement with a healthy and fit body? Do I dare hope this time I can successfully sustain a weight loss of 90 pounds?

Yes, pickled beets are yummy! There is a chance I'm allergic to vinegar, so that would make me retain water too, if I am. Ah well!

Thanks dear friend for your blog stop by. This has been some EPIC battle and it still rages on! We are planning a wonderful getaway to the mountains of N. Carolina next month to enjoy the fall foliage. In FL we miss out on seasons and being an Iowa girl..I love fall and spring the best. We've been down here for over 30 some year...so to do a few little side trips to enjoy the outdoors is ALWAYS high on my list.

Thank you for stopping by...my sparkling friends are the BEST of the BEST! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I read a few of your blogs and thoroughly ENJOYED them...I'm adding you as a friend and I hope that's okay. We can walk down this pathway to health and happiness together! emoticon

“The difference between stepping stones and stumbling blocks is not in the event itself but how you think about it and what you do after it.
Every failure and setback can become part of your success or an excuse for quitting or failing.
People who develop the discipline of positivity are both happier and more successful."
-Michael Josephson

Just dropping by to say hello, Sparkfriend! Remember, you don't have to be perfect on this journey in order to make progress! As long as you keep trying...and never quit...you are already a success! Keep doing your best, because you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Part of abandoning the all-or-nothing mentality is allowing yourself room for setbacks.
We are bound to have lapses on the road to health and wellness, but it is critical that we learn how to handle small failures positively so that we can minimize their long-term destructive effects.
One setback is one setback—it is not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you.”
-Jillian Michaels
