My life has gone from being the "Duchess of Don't Try" to a "Princes of Preparing-to-Change", and I am as of now and happily ever after being coronated as "Empress of (Healthy) Eating and Exercise". This cycle has been my life for a as long as I can remember (and I know that managing healthy eating and weight loss can be a royal pain), so I'm hoping that by my own decree I can make healthy changes, one at a time, stick for the rest of my life. My "crowning" glory so to speak.
I have three grown children, one husband (that's always enough), two grand daughters, and a very hectic job that keeps me stressed out and eating on the fly. This page is where I will come for my daily "mini vacations." Here is where I will visit with myself. This will be my tranquil castle, where I come to give ME some royal treatment (and when needed, a royal pep talk). My mind's castle is here to escape from the REAL world pressures, if only for a few moments, and give myself what I need to survive another overthrown royal plan.
Here is where I find the power to rule my life. Here is where I decree my unhealthy habits to be banned from the kingdom (I mean queendom) forever more.
One day at a time...one minute at a time...one second at a time to HEALTH.
Keep trying! When you fall, get up and get back in the race. (Sounds like a song, hum?)
Married, 3 children, 3 grandchildren and too many pounds!
I love to travel, read, go to the theatre, concerts, but I'd like to do all these without so much effort to get there. The extra weight is a drag on the woman I used to be and wish to be again.

Jeanne, Iâ€™m thinking about you as you remember your beloved mother. Even though we slowly learn how to live without them, they will forever be treasured deep within our hearts. May the heartache from missing her be comforted by the precious memories that only you and she shared together. Iâ€™m sending you love, healing and hugs on this Motherâ€™s Day.

Just FYI, since you've been asking, we aren't doing a monthly forum on Over 60's anymore. It's just one long forum - What's Going On In Your Life - 2016.

Hello, Jeanne, my fellow dancer,
Although I haven't danced much lately. Going to get back to it though. How have you been? Are you keeping the weight off and healthy? I hope you are well.
