I am here for the support of people like myself who are finding it harder & harder to lose...
I want to be a skinny, old woman like my Grams was without running a hog farm, tending vegetable gardens & using mules to hoe fields! (she was my grandmother's mother) This may or may not ease my pain, but it could help a little not having so much weight on my frame
I am following a 'revised' South Beach diet, compatible for diabetics; I also do an exercise program that includes working on an Ab-Away(reverse crunches, which is easier on the back & neck), an upright rowing machine, walking inside w/walking DVD & outside w/ my cat entourage, strength training (3-lb wgts), stretching & T'ai Chi
I recently turned 54 ( MAY 12), married 25 yrs-Leonard, we have (2) grown daughters: one half way thru her Masters in Criminal Justice; the other expecting her 1st daughter in OCT; I have at present (6) cats here in the mtns & about (8) in the country, which we are trying to sell & since that is the only home they have ever known, we're finding homes for them there - most have lived there the whole time we did, 15 yrs, so a move would be more upsetting
than not...anyway, I love animals & I am an artist by nature; in fact, I paint alot of animals/wildlife b/c I consider them portraits as much as people
I also love to read (my favorite authors incl. JoAnn Ross, Iris Johannsen, Kay Hooper, Kathy Reichs, Patricia Cornwell, James Patterson as well as the Harry Potter series, Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and Sherlock Holmes, Jack London & Mark Twain) and listen to my CDs (from Classic Rock n Roll, Pure Moods to Classical to Bagpipes & Drums). I also participate in a Prayer Shawl Ministry & Caps for Preemies (crocheting), as well as crocheting afghans for friends & family...
