I should follow this advise:

"Never make someone a priority in your life
who makes you an option in theirs"

That means I need to make MYSELF a priority in my life, not just an optional part of my life. IF I want to be as healthy as I can be.

Found this quote on a friend's blog:
"Failure to exercise, frequent snacking and poor dietary choices are the common reasons for weight loss failure after gastric sleeve. "
note: remove the last three (3) words from the quote and it says it all.

My Goals:
To accept God's love, to let myself believe God truly does love me unconditionally. To make my learning a new better-for-me life-style a top priority in every moment of my life. Rather than a sometimes affair.

My Program:
I am in the process of learning "NEW" Healthy habits with the goal of their becoming my "Normal" Living habits. It may take the rest of my life to get my body to its natural weight. I prefer slow loss to my new forever weight rather than quick and having the battle of the bulge go on forever.

Personal Information:
I just LOVE old movies (40's and 50's especially) "Random Harvest" "Mr. Chips" "Pride and Prejudice" "Singin in the Rain" AND how about the music!! BIg Band (Glenn Miller, the Dorseys) the singers: Frankie Laine, Perry Como, Billy Eckstine

Other Information:
I am an American with ancestors from other countries and ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War (and other wars since). I live in the Northeast in one of the New England states, New Hampshire. I live in an old body (with a young soul), am retired, a widow, & have 3 middle-aged children(?).
on 3/15/15 I started to update this.. the update disappeared. thus I took that as a sign I should leave well enough alone.

    Very good idea to have the generator installed, Audra. We have a gas fireplace that works when the power is off and keeps the main floor fairly comfortable.

    emoticon so much Audra for always writing the kindest encouragements and compliments. I cannot tell you how much it means to me! And I am so glad you enjoy following my little adventures around Paris or abroad. I have 3 trips planned in the next few weeks and hope I'll be able to post at least a couple of blogs about them.
    No pain at all left from my hike on Saturday, I went on a 1.5 hour walk in the forest tonight and enjoyed it so much!
    Have a beautiful week Audra, and take good care of yourself! emoticon

    I'm a bit of a shutter bug, so yep, I'll post pics! So much happening lately. Still love SP, but just don't have the time or energy to do much with it. But, I still care! Think of you often. God bless.

    I just discovered the pinwheel - thanks so much!

    Your plans for February sound wonderful... I'd love to get away from the snow in February, and I'm sure you'll have a great time.

    We leave September 27 for twenty-four days, and I'll keep you posted about the trip. This is my 4th cruise; Peter's probably done a dozen or more.

    Have a great day,
