To fit into normal size clothes (no Xs). To improve my posture.
Atkins diet. Daily exercise at home.
Laurie, now living on beautiful Denman Island, BC, Canada. Age 60. I do freelance work at home.
I like the Atkins diet because I don't feel hungry (except when I AM hungry). For exercise I'm doing cardio, strength, core, posture, and flexibility work--mostly DVDs and Internet videos, but also some freestyle dancing, etc., and some things I've learned along the way. I have a weekly checklist, and I change the list every month so I don't get bored.

Often Hons were waitresses in small diners and cafes but they could work about anywhere. Usually in the "service " industry.
They would use the word Hon, not as a term of endearment, but as a punctuation mark:
"Would you (or yous) like me to warm up yer cawfy, Hon?"
On the bus: "Why don't you take my seat, Hon, being that yer in that way. (Pregnant but don't say that word.)"
Hon is not exclusive to Bawlmerese, but it is a characteristic of the language.
And to be honest, I never heard anyone say Bawlmer unless they were exaggerating. More common would be Bawldimer.

Thank You Laurie, so much for your words of encouragement. The answer will come. If not I still will be doing what I need to do.

Hi Laurie, Thank You so much for stopping by my blog. I knew I had to write it for a reason if only to give a little inspiration to You. I started June 01, 2 months before my 61st birthday. It took me 17 months but I did not care since I knew it would be for the rest of my Life. I wish You only the very best on your journey. It is a difficult one but oh so worth it.
