halloween 1016. I got many compliments on my Roadkill Zombie costume and makeup.

shambling adds effect! I guess I'm a domestic zombie since I tend to hang out in the kitchen?

(can I brag? just a little? on 12-12-15, my page was the daily featured SparkPeople Motivator. and honestly, that just made me bust my Feel-Good Gut! THANK YOU!)

I'm a highly educated, 60+, retired lady 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 always 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 all over. (Update: now halfway there.) 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 my dear friend Ginger (that green thing on my shoulder in my profile image), in addition to my more vigorous pursuits of snow-skiing, step-aerobics, shooting hoops, and hula-hooping. Hey, ya gotta keep it fun!

    above is an article about GSE...more of a natural medicine akin to a broad spectrum antibiotic.
    I am curious to hear what a pharmacist has to say about it.

    Saw your name on the low carb team - came to see you and found delightfully fun person!
    Hope the gifts got wrapped or put in pretty bags with tissue or whatever is easiest!
    You have a positive "get 'er done" spirit and hoping to see you more on the low carb group - I'm just learning and am a turtle when it comes to any weight loss or getting nything accomplished but the turtle won famous race once so I have HOPE! Have a great day - will be following to wee if you do more daily Cmas challenges!
