Starting over again

It is time to get healthy and quit dragging around this excess weight. I feel so much better at a lower weight and when I eat properly, I have less pain from fibromyalgia.

My Goals:
I want to get down to a healthy weight, which for me is 150 to 160 pounds.

I started my own practice, House Calls, to provide holistic healthcare in patient's homes. I hoped to help others lose weight and get healthier too! Unfortunately my own health got in the way so I had to retire. Now I need to find a way to be more active with out making my fibromyalgia flare.

My Program:
In the past I have tried various kinds of products/programs that required me to buy or use something other than regular food. I lost weight but afterwards would gain back more than I lost. This time I am using real food. This is a permanent change so I don't want to lose fast, I want to slowly change my body to healthy and lean. Even when I succumb to junk food on occasion, I just go back to eating normally. I am really not all that hungry or having a lot of food cravings.

Personal Information:
I've recently retired from being a nurse practitioner. We put the farm up for sale and moved into a motor home.

My Christmas Wish For You
My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too .. Hugs, Rose

A long time ago , a mother prepared for Christmas Eve. She cleaned and scrubbed her home, chasing the spiders from the living room with her broom. The spiders fled to the attic and listened to the excitement below as the Christmas tree was put up and decorated. When all was quiet again, the little spiders crept back downstairs to see the beautiful tree. They were filled with happiness as they crawled along every branch, admiring the glittering beauty of each ornament. But alas, by the time they had finished climbing through the tree, it was completely draped with their dusty, gray cobwebs.

When the Christ child came, He smiled as He looked upon the happy little spiders, however, He knew the mother would be heartbroken when she saw the shrouded tree. So He reached out and touched the webs and, blessing them, turned them into silver and gold. Now the Christmas tree sparkled and shimmered and was even more beautiful than before. Thus the custom to have tinsel of silver and gold and a spider ornament among the other decorations on the Christmas tree was born.
