Knitting a Better Me

After 50+ years of frustrated attempts, my real life began on February 24, 2013. Knitting even the largest and most intricate and beautiful items is accomplished the same as knitting the small, easy items--one stitch at a time. This is not a journey to weight loss; it is a journey about choosing life one day at a time.

"Don't take a clock on this journey, take a compass. It's the direction you're moving in that matters, not the time it takes to get there."

My Goals:
Improved well-being, and serenity in my life.

KEEPING IT POSITIVE!

Becoming a kinder, gentler, better me.

My Program:
Making more healthful choices, one meal at a time. I focus on whole foods, legumes, fresh organic produce, organic meat.

I follow the 3-0-1 plan: THREE healthy meals in normal portions a day, NOTHING in between (snacks do NOT work for me!), ONE day at a time!

Lack of will power has been my dilemma my entire life. But THERE IS A SOLUTION! It's so simple, really, Not easy, but simple.

IN IT TO WIN IT, ONE DAY AT A TIME!

Personal Information:
57 year old with multiple health disabilities and challenges.

I knit. I love to knit. I am an artist and I love color.

I love my furry, four legged animal companions dearly.

I share my heart and a home with my partner of 20 wonderful years, and now legal spouse for 1!

Other Information:
I used to think that if I could only find the right eating plan, all would be well. Now I know better.

I am willing to do whatever it takes, and ask for the willingness to be willing where I still have walls.

"Don't take a clock on this journey, take a compass. It's the direction you're moving in that matters, not the time it takes to get there." I love your quote! So true . . . I'm going to tape this to my refrigerator so I am reminded everyday.
