Still Searching..........

When I first joined this site, I wrote "Life goes on, and I'm tired of sitting on the sidelines watching." I've spent the vast majority of my life sitting on the sidelines...mostly because I just wouldn't allow myself to join in, to be happy, or to be successful!! Pretty dumb, eh? (Ya, I'm Canadian)

I read somewhere on here (in someone's sig line) that Michaelangelo was 71 when he was commissioned to do the Sistine Chapel.....so even though I'm a 56 year old grandma, it's not ...

I read somewhere on here (in someone's sig line) that Michaelangelo was 71 when he was commissioned to do the Sistine Chapel.....so even though I'm a 56 year old grandma, it's not too late for me either. It's not going to be easy, but my life alarm has been going off too many times lately for me to ignore it anymore. My body is falling apart from abuse and neglect, and if I don't do something NOW, I won't be able to walk without a cane in a few years...definitely not something I want to have happen any time soon!!

I'm also going to get back to my blogging...I've been away from my writing from far too long, and at least the people here understand what I'm going through!

Hi, emoticon for visiting my blog, "Challenge: 1 Pizza Slice in 20 Minutes or MORE." Bit by bit, we can transform our habits into a healthy lifestyle that is FUN and REWARDING. I like the approaches you are following - yoga, tai chi, walks, and eating more sloooooooooowly. One day at a time...

Hello new friend! Thanks SO much for stepping into the EL position. I'll be sending you a note on what I do as WL so that you can step into my shoes if I have to be absent. It's a great job and not hard at all. In the meantime please read our teamies~blogs and give them motivation whenever you can.

We ALL love a pat on the back when we persevere and lose those lbs don't we?

I'm adding you as a friend so that I can cheer you on! emoticon emoticon emoticon
