Big Dog "Duke"
Me and Great-Granddaughter
Merlin at 10 months old and 125#
I'm 73. and I have decided that I am not going to focus on losing weight as much as I am going to improve my eating habits. I have asthma and am on oxygen at night and can't walk long distances, I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder and now have a frozen shoulder, so that shoulders makes it difficult to do a lot of kind of exercises, so I do what I can, and if I lose a couple pounds that is a bonus, not a requirement.
I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.
Feel free to write to me.
I will maintain my health the best I can.
I will walk to the best of my ability each day
I will watch my bad snacking habits.
My name is Linda, I am 73 year old, or as I say 60-13. I am married to my very best friend, and a farmers wife, so I wear a verity of hat. I have 3 grown sons, none who live near, 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
I love to read, favorite writers are Steven King, Dean Koontz, Robin Cook, James Patterson, etc. I also like crossword puzzles, zig saw puzzles, gardening, and anything outside. And of course our 2 dogs, Duke, a 3year old Great Pyreneese , and Merlin almost 2 year old Newfoundland/Great Pyreneese puppy.

Thanks for stopping by, and I totally agree that there is no way a person can go sugar free, there is so much hidden sugar in everything now, that you just have to do what you do, and read the labels and pick the one with les sugar. And have found that store bought brands are usually the least. INTERESTING.

Just to let you know, I am still out here, in the vastness of "Sparkville", reading & enjoying blogs, even though I have not been taking time to leave many comments. Its all due to a time crunch on this side of the computer screen, what with our usual Fall schedule in full swing.
I did want to reply to your comment concerning going sugar free: the way I view going sugar means no added sugars, honeys, or sugar substitutes = no sweets or products containing "hidden" sugars. One must read labels very carefully. It is surprising how many products contain those "hidden" sugars, that one would not normally consider to need sugar. It is, also, surprising how those without sugars (hidden or otherwise) can be found & enjoyed. Fruits & veggies containing natural sugars are fair game. That said, I prefer to go with those that contain the lowest amounts of natural sugars.

for reading my blog.
I included the recipe for the bread because it is easy in case anyone else wanted to try it. It blows my mind how easy it is and how good it is!
