Posted in July 2012:

Life's rollercoaster has been in the downhill mode the last two years, and I haven't responded in many positive ways. Since 2009 I gained back 35 lbs of the 40 I had lost the two years before.

And -- feeling old, and out of shape and over the hill. Oh, a whole list of "woe is me".

But on my 59th birthday, in June 2012, I decided that what I could do was lose one pound per week for the next 52 weeks. Not two, not 1-1/2, but one pound a week. Would that not be an excellent goal??

I also decided to work on just one habit every two weeks. I started with water -- just drink a glass -- when I wake up, before every meal, and before bedtime. The second habit was getting out of bed, putting on my shoes and going for a walk.

So far so good . . .

Thanks for your comment on the gratitude list. I've made it a practice for years to rattle off a 10 item list when I feel rotten.
