Koshie tries again

I'm a 50+ retired, married housewife whose main "fun" right now is leading an aerobics class twice a week. I'm not a tech-head, but I'm active, involved, and searching for more friends. I'm even better in person, as I'm pretty laid-back and accepting!

I've learned how to reach a weight loss goal -- I reached my goal weight by Low Carbing, a la Atkins. But I got severe lack of support at a time of great stress, did the stupid thing and regained the weight, and now am starting ...

I've learned how to reach a weight loss goal -- I reached my goal weight by Low Carbing, a la Atkins. But I got severe lack of support at a time of great stress, did the stupid thing and regained the weight, and now am starting all over. I'm smart, but I have learned you are always stronger when you have help. I KNOW I can do this; but I'd love to have a buddy.

My goal is to lose weight and keep it off for ME -- to look good, feel good, and be healthier for the rest of my life. I'm finally OVER (that was SO last decade!) the struggle to stay YOUNG and pushing myself far too hard. Now, I'm more relaxed -- I enjoy gardening, oil painting, stained-glass making, dancing, reading, and cuddling with DH and my dear friend Ginger (that green thing on my shoulder), in addition to my more vigorous pursuits of snow-skiing, step-aerobics, shooting hoops, and hula-hooping. Hey, ya gotta keep it fun!

I made myself a snowball,
As perfect as could be,
I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
And let it sleep with me.
emoticon
I made it some pajamas,
And a pillow for its head,
Then last night it ran away,
But first - it wet the bed!
emoticon emoticon
Now I know better and I'll keep those snow
people outside in the yard. They seem to prefer
the cold!
emoticon emoticon emoticon
Besides, I have YOU for a friend!!
