Choose to Lose

I am 64 years old and have struggled with 10 to 30 pounds since I was in high school. It has been with me most of my life. My dream has been to figure out the formula to have balance in my life and to be able to eat healthy, exercise and not stress about the additional baggage. I am glad that I work on it. If I didn't, where would I be? I love The Spark. I have become more active with the site since I retired last year and have more time to enjoy and learn from it.

Hi Katie. Just wanted to see what you've been up to lately. Have you been well? How are things with your sister?

We have been paining around - and on - our house this past weekend. What a job, but it looks great and I'm so glad that's done. Did a few touch-ups inside like painting the window seat and I've noticed a few places on the walls that need a dab of paint but that will have to wait a while. Trying to get things fixed up to sell next year, if all goes well. We'll see. Anyway, I've been thinking of you and thought I'd stop by and visit a minute.

Take care of yourself and I hope that you're enjoying the beginnings of fall as it's cooling down here anyway! Love the colors of fall, just don't like that winter follows!! LOL

Lonna (((hugs)))

Welcome BAAAAAACK. Congratulations on a fantastic trip. . those pounds will melt off.
I was making too many trips myself - to the kitchen. I gained back some weight, but have now lost it.

WOW!!! A river trip in Europe sounds so very exciting; I am soooooo envious. I am glad that you got to go and had a good time. I'll bet that you got some great pictures along the way. Our youngest niece has been to Europe twice and traveled through there extensively - she brought back the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. And then when she married back in May, they went to Scotland on their honeymoon! What an opportunity. If you feel like it at all, blog and tell us about your trip. I would love to hear what adventures that you had. So glad that you're safely back home again and for that kind of trip...the five pounds were worth it. You'll lose them fast now that you're back home! So good to hear from you again.

Lonna (((hugs)))

Hi Katie...just got back from visiting my sister and wanted to stop by and see how you're doing. Anything new happening in your life? Not much going on here! I think I need to get a more exciting life so I'd have something to brag about! LOL Hope that you're doing well. Have a great day. Lonna (((hugs)))
