I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in March. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I wished, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 1.5 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the next 2-3 weeks pending my mom's health after her fall last March, breaking an arm and leg. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.

After a very long plateau, I have made my 1st long term goal of 100# lost on 3/20/16. 1# added to the loss this week. The plateau is broken and now onto a small goal of 17# (no date to meet).

I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    Hi there we had an ice rink this morning. I am so glad I got all the leaves out of the yard and the pool area. Now it is snow. I like snow much better than ice.
    DH and I are going to the Y , we have bought a membership so I can walk any time. I had 8400 steps today.
    DH has a foot problem and at his age the podiatrists said they never do the procedure over 59, according to them.
    He has a brace and every so often he has to have the brace tweaked. He loves to drive and so he can walk and then sit with others and chat (Mostly- Listen)
    He is a great guy, he is a keeper. Thanks for commenting on my blogs.

    I have been through many rough patches in my life.
    I have had bad relationships and bad friends.
    I made a million wrong choices in my life.
    But I realized that all my life I was only making efforts
    to make my friends stay and make my relationships work.
    Although I know that I can’t keep all the people happy all the time,
    I was only trying to make other people happy at the cost of my happiness.
    But now I will live for myself and for my self- respect.
    I am not here to live up to anyone’s expectations.
    I will not allow anyone to take me for granted anymore,
    because I will never be a victim of deceit or manipulations.
    I am free spirited and I have learned to live and survive on my own terms.
    I am invincible and you cannot break me even if I get emotionally worked up.
    You can win my heart with love
    but I will never be a victim of anyone’s selfish motives.
    I have my own unique personality and I am confident
    that I can handle my life beautifully.
