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!

Koshie-Hope you spent the day counting all the many, many blessings in your life.

T’was the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep. I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned, the dark meat and white.
But I fought the temptation, with all of my might.

Tossing and turning, with anticipation. The thought of a snack became infatuation.

So I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door, and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey, and buttered potatoes, pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling, so plump and so round, ‘til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
With a mouthful of stuffing and a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees
Happy eating to all, pass the cranberries, please!!

Hope you had a wonderful day!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

emoticon T for time to be together, turkey, talk and autumn weather.
emoticon H for harvest stored away, home and hearth and holiday.
emoticon A for autumn’s frosty art and abundance in the heart.
emoticon N for neighbors and November, nice things, new things to remember.
emoticon K for kitchen, kettle’s croon, kith and kin expected soon.
emoticon S for sizzles, sights and sounds, something special that abounds.

That spells THANKS – for joy in living! And a jolly good Thanksgiving!
I'm so very grateful to be on this journey with you!
Linda

Today is another gift just for you. It is full of mystery and opportunities. But sometimes we let our attitude change a gift into something to be dreaded!

As you unwrap emoticon your gift of today, look for the fun, laughter and love that this Monday holds just for YOU!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have an incredible Monday and a great Thanksgiving week!

Thank you so much for the tip about quinine water. I've tried it and, yes, it works to mute the cramps somewhat. In my case, I'm almost 100 percent convinced that these cramps are something like a panic attack. There seems to be no physiological reason for them, so even the very powerful neuroleptic agents that the doctor gave me didn't touch them! All I have to do is retire and I think the worst of them is over. I don't have cramping when I'm not at work. Talk about stress!

Thanks again. I really, really appreciate that you thought of me!!
