I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 64 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (47 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins
(another one on the way!).
I have a beautiful second home/
www.jasminevilla.com
I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    My kids most definitely remember this story: and "capable of being pleasant" is a bit of a catch phrase at our house!!

    Thanks for the comment and info on my blog. I know you can't out-exercise a bad diet - and truly committing to making a change. I was in the 170's a couple of weeks ago and going to join you there again! So your IF lasts 16 hours and how many calories do you eat on those days? The link you gave me brings me to a different website. Maybe you can send me the link in a message via Facebook?

    Thanks for coming by my blog. I have followed you for YEARS from afar so knew exactly who you are! I just turned 68 July 22. And TOTALLY agree with ALL you said in your comment....and that is EXACTLY how I eat (until this overfilling with veggies) and for all the reasons you mentioned. GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE!

    Again, thank you!
