Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Hi! Just wanted to check in with you. You've been on my mind a lot.

Thought you would enjoy this story: One of my students saw me at a function the other day, and asked me very thoughtfully "Teacher Amy, are you old?" Since he's 4, I probably seem that way, so I said, "Sure, I'm pretty old." Wide eyed and innocent, he then asked me "What was it like to ride on dinosaurs?"

You're exactly right on the riddle, I thought that was cute. Hope all is well there.
I'm sure we can accomplish great things in June-I have to keep my cals in range too, that is why I have to have good nutrition and great choices, otherwise I'll be off the wagon again.

Your comment about writing a story cracked me up...I had literally started writing one the night before! (Of course, I could also clean my house or weed the garden, but that is not as entertaining!)
