After many -many years I can still do this.

Only one person can defeat me-- it's myself

I lost 50 pounds but sorry to say I have found 30 of them again.

My Goals:
I would like to lose about 35 pounds and live a healthy life style. I have always been very active and loved to exercise but it's my eating I need to work on. I know it's a mind thing -change the mind and the body will follow.

My Program:
I have promised self no sweets for one full month -that is all of April. I know it takes just 14 days to get craving out of your system so by then I should not even be thinking of junk foods.

Personal Information:
I am from Kansas. Retired and enjoy my family and friends. I worked at Sears untill the closing of the store. I bought my first computer just 4 yrs ago and love spending timeon it.
In 1905 I decided to change my life style after having a heart attack and being put on 19 meds a day. I am off all but 2 now, but if I keep gaining weight I'm afraid I'll be back on them so here I go again. I'm motivated and know how to do it so now all I need is the complete mind change.

Other Information:
I love to write childrn stories for my grandkids. I have wrote a history book of my home town. One of my favorite passtimes is writing motivational articles for myself and anyone else that cares to read them.

Thanks I am just now trying to find my way around here. I joined some time ago but had never done anything but just look around. I decided to jump in and get my feet wet. I filled out my personal page but then I don't see where my picture or anything else is showing. Guess I need to work on that.
