My Goals:
I've never really been at a "normal" weight for my age. It's difficult to "picture" what I would actually look like when I reach goal. More importantly is how will I feel about myself when I reach goal? Will it frighten me? I know I will feel better. There was a brief time in high school where I lost 30 pounds and was pretty close to goal weight but still 15-20 pounds over what the "chart guessers" thought. Yet I remember how energetic I felt, how awesome it felt to try on smaller pants, guessing at size, only to discover that they also were TOO BIG, and going down to a smaller size. Really cool. So I want that feeling again.

I've see various relatives struggling in their 70's and 80's because they made poor choices in their diet, didn't exercise, and they are having an awful time. Yet, I do see some friends in their 80's and 90's who are really ROCKIN', in great health, energetic, and I want to be that way when I'm in my 80's or 90

My Program:
Well, so far, the program is to just get this set up and figure out what is what, decide what to do, get some sleep, GET OFF THE INTERNET (including the wonderfully fun websites like this one!), and get some SLEEP!

EAT VEGGIES! I love them, but why won't I stop and prepare them for myself?



Do 15 minutes of DeCluttering 4-6 days a week (FlyLady!)

Okay, I'm not done with this list now. But I'm giving myself permission to stop here and revisit it later. It shouldn't go away anytime soon, as long as SparkGuy has enough squirrels running on the electric generators to keep powering the computers holding all of the SparkPeople pages!!

Then I can update this later with more profound coherent goals.

Personal Information:
I'm north of Wichita, KS not far - if that's where you are, drop me a note! Maybe we can walk??

"...this does not include healthy sweets like fruit, does it??"
No way, my friend! I even allow myself granola bars because they have less sugar than candy bars. I'm only restricting three major triggers, starting small this time. Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog! Have a great weekend! emoticon

Oh, wow! A NEW clothesline makes it even better! Not sure about the oily smell. Do you make your own laundry detergent? I use homemade plus use white vinegar as my fabric softener in the washer. It could be air pollution from the mower next door but I think the smell of grass would be the more prominent scent in that case. Anyway, I hope you get the kinks worked out and soon enjoy line-dried as much as I do. It's almost a meditation, or sometimes a game, for me to hang things on the line to get the most out of the space or other things like color matching or just putting all the socks in a row. Each year I tell my Hubby that you can tell Spring is here when we can see all the "bloomers" outside... lol!
Happy Sparking!!!
