To the END

Over the last few years I've vacillated between being "obese" and "over weight", never making it to "normal". After I lose a good amount of weight - 30 lbs. or so - I find something in me resisting; and I get obsessive about food --- eating, eating, eating until I've gained most (or all) of the weight back.
As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I ...

As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I have and am putting them through.
I do well when I have a tangible, desirable goal, e.g., taking a trip that requires a lot of walking for which I want to get in shape. Unfortunately, after the trip, I start to slide again. I definitely need to change my goal/reward strategies.

It is so good to read something positive about working from home! I have desperately tried to avoid it, but now that it is unavoidable I am trying to embrace it. Indeed our HR manager told me to try and stick to strict hours, I know my tendency will be to work constantly (this is what happened to me in the past when I worked from home just for the day).
Enjoy the end of the year! And Bonne Année ! :-)

Your travels sound wonderful! My sister and b-i-l went to Alaska on a cruise last year with a final few days in Vancouver. They really liked it. A highlight seemed to be a visit to Denali National Park. I'm not sure if that was all part of the cruise, or if they did that separately.
I am not sure of my travels next year, other than a trip to FL in the winter. I can't face another one of the winters we had in Boston this past year. It was pretty awful. My dog has been in failing health and needs so much care that it would be hard to leave her with (inflict her on) a family member. So, 2016 might stay domestic.
