My daughter and I on a beach in Denmark
My Honey and I, together for 35+ years
At Shakespeare's Trinity Church in Stratford, England
My motivational slogans:
No turning back
In it for the long haul
Make time your ally, not your enemy
No weakness; be strong
Manage my body - I am my own boss
Make healthy eating a habit
Persistance, patience, consistency
Watch what I put on my plate
Think before I reach for it; think before I put it in my mouth
Positive attitude no matter what
Say NO to the wrong choices
Move; walk every day
Eat less; exercise more (Joe Hale)
Eat to live, don't live to eat
Take food off the throne of my life
The salad is the main dish (Dr. Fuhrman)
Stick to my strategy; slow and steady wins the race
The impossible is just a challenge, a temporary obstacle
I hope to lose excess pounds, but even more than that, to be in good health by eating right and exercising.
I am trying to establish good eating habits, including healthy food choices, smaller portions, and small healthy snacks. I also am committed to walking on the treadmill or outside at least 30 minutes every day.
I am a mom of five wonderful adult children, one beautiful granddaughter and a new little grandson. A retired teacher by profession, I currently help my 92-year-old mother, teach Sunday School, play the piano, decorate cakes, and do genealogy research. No wonder I haven't had time to exercise! I have to MAKE time.

Thank you for the comment on my blog and for the support. I'm trying my hardest to not pig out... but I'm not doing the greatest job of it right now. I want to get back in gear, but I keep telling myself tomorrow. Ugh. As for the apartment, all I can do is wait out the rest of lease and then leave.
Thank you again!

It has been along time since I have been on SparkPeople. I have had an inordinate amount of excuses to not have "time". So, I made a decision yesterday to get back on track.
I have lots to tell you. I found my grandfather's where abouts, and met "first cousins" this summer. They were stunned and suspicious, but when I presented all the facts, we had a family reunion, after DNA testing, which proved we were related. And, we have a family resemblence! More later
