Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

I am mother of 3 sons, step mother of 1 son, mother in law to 3 wonderful women, grandmother to 5, soon to be ...

"People say that losing weight is no walk in the park. When I hear that I think, yeah, thatís the problem."

-Chris Adams

emoticon with your comment "Carnie Wilson is also an object lesson that bariatric surgery isn't the magic bullet some people think it is" on my latest blog. I have a good friend who had such surgery - a lifelong friend of hers had the surgery at the same time. I remember my friend saying that the other gal was not dropping pounds very successfully - she went on to explain that the gal was eating smaller portions; however, her choices of foods were poor - like she would choose a couple of pieces of emoticon & call them a meal. She just couldn't seem to get it into her head that she needed to make better choices around food.

Sadly, twenty years later, both gals are still dealing with eating/weight issues

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment.

God bless!
