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.

They sure put in some long, hot days during harvest! This picture was taken across the road from our house and we are surrounded by farm ground. We get to watch the whole process of growing that food!

Thank you SOOOOOO much for your comments on my recent blog 'Goodbye Robin' - you have no idea how much they have helped me. Much of my own response to everyone's comments I am repeating now, but I really did want to write to each of you individually.

To know that Robin was acknowledged by 'strangers' so far away, who never met him and will almost certainly never meet me in person, has cheered me no end. It has given an extra validation to his life and made me even more proud of him - if that were even possible.

Life goes on and now it is rescue OES Harley's turn 'in the sun', along with our rescue GSD x Rotti who had to have her leg amputated last June owing to osteosarcoma. We just came back from her weekly hydrotherapy session - around 800 ($1100-ish) worth so far, but worth every penny/cent! Harley is very different from Robin, a bit of a handful and as boisterous, stubborn and naughty as Robin was perfect. But he makes us laugh and for that we are giving him his own Goodie! Ha Ha Harley!

Thank you again - you have really helped me.

I was in Kripalu yoga and I have their cook book"

KRIPALU KITCHEN" by Jo Ann Levitt, Linda Smith and Christine Warren from way back in 1980.
It has a chapter called Grains and Pasts.

First line and I quote,
" GRAINS FORM THE STAPLE OF OUR DIET, AND ALONG WITH VEGETABLES AND LEGUMES CAN TRULY BE CONSIDERED OUR "STAFF OF LIFE"!"
I hope you can check this out about the grains and please let me know I still do my yoga but cannot afford the centers fees.
IF I READ CORRECTLY 70% fat does sound excessive. I know I would not eat that much for sure, but that is just my take on this.
I spent 12 years giving myself allergy shots and was Gluten Free. I did not eat BROWS---- Barley, Rye, Oats, Wheat and Spelt.
Later there were mills that cleaned their facilities and ground the Oats first to remove any Gluten contaminants.
Then I started to eat OATS and still do eat Oat Bran.
