My name is Judy I retired this February. I was flip flopping back & forth with my weight for too long. In Jan. of this year I started to be a MINDFUL eater. When I go out to a restaurant ( which is not too often ) I go on line to read their menu & pick out from home what I want. That way I already know what I will have as if I did not I would be prone perhaps to order unhealthy. If I go to a buffet before even picking up the plate I walk the buffet twice then I pick out my grilled meat chicken & fish or if not grilled will get chicken take the skin off & breading so I have some protein. Then the rest of my plate is filled with all kinds of vegetables, plus a ;large salad with no dressing on it as I would not be able to taste the vegetable in it's crispy form. I use to smother my salad with dressing, then there is a;ways plenty of fruit . I always order water no sugared drinks !!! I am also & still can not believe my attitude change on working out. I walk 2 to 4 miles a day, swim 3 times a week for an hour straight, then Zumba twice a week. I almost lost my hand due to an accident. So I have changed in my thinking so much about life. I try to be a MINDFUL eater & MINDFUL in my exercise !!!

    Great suggestion on Mexgal...I've read several of her blogs from years ago and she seems to be a very nice person. I doubt I'd ever get DH to Mexico...sadly it's one of those countries that have a real stigma for safety against it. AND...having our construction biz for so long with so many employees that came from there (born and raised) I think he heard plenty of horror stories about the police and being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It is beautiful though and we have a friend that travels back and forth from Mexico to the U.S. all the time and feels perfectly safe. He does speak fluent Spanish though. All in all I know that many countries really have no tolerance for americans and I can't say I blame them with the way some of us act in their lands....but I'm not sure I want to go somewhere that I know I'm resented to that degree....it doesn't feel safe to me. There are probably places that are perfectly safe...it would not be a convincing argument to DH though...he used to tell me some of the stuff that happened to the locals and the stuff that happened to gringos was even worse. emoticon

    Thanks for commenting on my "Coloring" blog!
    I've been coloring in my new book most of the day! I love it! Maybe just because it's new, but that's ok, I have plenty of time to pass right now. I had to put my reading glasses on site I could stay in the lines!
    It's nice of you and your husband to help your cousin, just think how wonder this world would be if more people were so thoughtful instead of the "me" world it's become.
    I'm sure ready to get back on my feet! I'm anxious to see my Dr on 7/20.
    Hope you have a happy healthy weekend!
