    emoticon stopping by to remind you that when we commit to losing weight, we need to create small realistic goals that are attainable. Small goals could be anything like getting in your daily serving of fruit and vegetables.

    Remember when it comes to vegetables, we are just talking your typical tomato, carrot and celery to eat or snack on. When it comes to vegetables then are many to chose from like kale, collard greens, mustard greens and other dark leafy greens. The darker green the leaf the more fiber the vegetable has and the better it is for your digestion.

    We also have purple, yellow and orange carrots, purple potatoes, red, green and yellow onions. Then there is whole multitude of other vegetables like summer, butter, winter, pumpkin squashes, radishes can be white or pink, even red. Then look at those beautiful black egg plants they to can come in different colors. The point is don't be afraid to experiment with different types of foods. And let's not forget our fruits, they can be sweet or sour, you can use them for desserts, smoothies, juices, snacks and so much more if you are a creative cook.

    If you don't like water, this too can be another small goal, try making a goal to drink at least 5 glasses of water 5 days a week.

    And most importantly when you reach your small goal, don't forget to reward yourself with a non-food reward for achieving that goal.

    Then it is time to move the goal up a little. Like the water from 5 glasses to 6 per day.

    And also you will want to "Fire up your sneakers to get at least 10+minutes of exercise at least 3-5 times a week." emoticon I know you can...You are ready to take that first step and commit yourself to a "HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE".... "A HEALTHIER NEW YOU"....

    emoticon emoticon I am here with you......

    We were both 25. She was patient on the floor I trained on. I ended up being transferred to ICU/CCU. She didn't last long after diagnosis.

    High school was okay for me too but in 1975, when I graduated from college and my best friend from high school did too, she died. She stood up for me when I married my first husband. It was a very difficult year in my life.

    Well, the fence is starting to rot...he had to replace a few boards in the past couple of weeks so there is that. The deck could stand to be rebuilt, too, but I think this time around it should be "hired out". He built it by himself originally but he is, of course, much older now. emoticon

    Yes, I do believe we will become foster parents. We had discussed it earlier - fostering as our pack "thinned" so we would not have too many of our own to hold us back from moving to Westminster when we are ready. They will only permit one or two. Clearly we have room in our home and our hearts for more!
