I've been sort of half-hearted trying to lose weight. Now it's time to really buckle down. I've stayed pretty much steady, but I'd like to see some of it go away. Which means I'll have to start moving more than what I do at work. There's so many times I can fit a few minutes of exercise in but I don't. Time to get off my lazy butt.
1. Lose at least one inch off my waist, abdomen and hips by January 31
2. Lose 5 pounds by the end of January
3. Be more attentive to my eating habits, both in portion control and what I eat.
1. I'm trying to watch what I eat better, so I can indulge in what I love (banana splits!) once in a while without feeling guilty.
2. I'm trying to be more active. Being in school means a lot of computer work, so I have to make an effort to move. My 2 year old granddaughter is good at helping me do that!
3. Drink more water and less diet pepsi.
4. Remember I have a wedding coming up next year and I want to fit in my dress.
I live in Minnesota, have three living children, two lovely stepdaughters, four sons in law, and six grandchildren. I'm a registered nurse have my master's degree in nursing education. I teach in a community college nursing program. I love to knit (and crochet), read, listen to music, watch movies and spend time with my husband who is retired.
I have been a fan of Dick Francis's mysteries for years. In his book Straight, there is a quote that I try to emulate: May I deal with honour, may I act with courage, may I achieve humility. I think it's a great way to try to live.

Good morning! I hope you are doing well this week. I’m almost at a count-down…counting down to be below 200 pounds—haven’t been there in 35 years! My health is my biggest focus, so here is a quote for today: It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. (Mahatma Gandhi) God bless….

Thanks Becky, it's going to be a challenging few days but I'm determined to stay out of the way as much as possible. Once all this is over I'm looking forward to some much calmer days!
