2014 was a year full of ups and downs - emotionally as well as on the scale. I ended the year at goal but I didn't see that number as often as I wish I had. 2015 will be different - which is something of a non sequitur - but it is nonetheless true. The Big Picture Goal is to begin each month within my target range. The supporting cast for the Big Picture will be worked out and shared on my blog over the coming months but it will surely include healthy food, reasonable portion sizes, delightful ...

Wow - this already sounds like a fantastic year! Hope the same for all who read this.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below...

Hi - thanks for your comment on my blog. Yea, I initially thought that might be the reason (because right foot hurts), but thinking back, it would hurt after I walked in my neighborhood for several months now -- of course, the right foot issues may have made it hurt more.

Dr's appointment tomorrow morning so we'll see!

My cats are also spoiled and have us well trained. That wind can be cold. Bundle up for those walks. Good luck with developing the habit of exercise and keeping up[ with those puppies. I am enjoying being outdoors again rather than in the gym.
