Life happens today

I'm kind of a private person. Glad to offer any help, consolation, shared laughter, or other support I can, but on-line pages make me uneasy, so you won't find me here very much, or very much of me here, either.

All the best to you on your journeys! Maybe we'll meet someday.

My Goals:
Heavy all my life (except for two short periods when I lost the weight, then lost the battle to keep it lost). I want to be in the 'healthy' range, and have my body happier with me.


My Program:
Going down S-L-O-W-L-Y, by design [my MD & I agreed on approx. 2lb/month, because that way I have a better chance of keeping it off]
Choosing to use 'real' foods, because then I'll stick better, so portion control is ABSOLUTELY central. Re-education. Trying to re-orient on veg and fruit (I'm a cheese-a-holic).
Exercise? love it/hate it, mostly haven't time to do it well--but I'm trying--and my dogs are trying to help.

Personal Information:
"Britomart" is a female knight in one book of Spenser's epic The Faerie Queene. She meets challenges bravely--like I'm trying to do with health and aging.

Hi, Britomart, I noticed your reference to Alexander technique on the Slowest Loser's blog today so I had to look you up. AT saved my singing in the 80s and 90s and has probably saved my back, legs, knees, feet and other assorted appendages as well as making it possible for me to continue active movement into my sixties. Hail F. Matthias Alexander! Just curious as to how you know about it.
PLUS...your name is from Edmund Spenser...I must confess, not one of my fave poets back when I was an English major, but one rediscovers all sorts of things in old age. Cool.

Hi BRITOMART! Saw our comment on the meQuilibrium post, so I'm just wondering if you might share the free sites you mentioned. I signed up for the free meQ trial, hoping it was like SparkPeople (points, articles, etc). So far I've only found a poetry MFA reciting things I've already heard before...

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, and for the interesting comment about the acronym CSA. That one never occurred to me! I'll stick with community supported agriculture, lol.

Very glad to be joining you on this journey.
