Well, I still mean it. Two years later, I have regained the weight lost, went back to the old food ways-eating emotionally, whatever suits my mood. Joints aching, belly bloated once again. The new revalation, 8 weeks of gluten-free, sugar free eating and I am down two pant sizes. The hard part of course is maintaining that eating plan. Christmas is behind us now, the sweets are done, damages were minimal, but it's been confirmed. Sugar increases the aches in my joints as well as setting me off on eating more of it. The gluten thing just causes me physical pain, eating it bloats me up, creates gastric distress and overall, just really isn't it worth it. So I'm off on doing my journey differently, as much as I possibly can. I'm learning new ways to make food tasty without added sugars and wheat, give myself treats and support this way of eating, not focusing on the weight, but on how food makes my body feel. It's a learning process...

My Goals:
To lose 23 lbs and truly change my behavior with food for good. To exercise daily. This is a lifetime goal, still a good one, but one I am realizing won't go away. To find something joyful in my life every single day.

My Program:
No more computer solitaire. It's like drinking to get numb for me. Track everything I eat. Make my diet whole foods, get my sugar from fruit and not from the box. Walk every day.
No matter what.

Personal Information:
I live in Hollister, a small town in a beautiful valley in Central California. I am an empty nester, my 82 year old mother with dementia lives 3 blocks from me in a nursing home and my adult daughter is a pre-school teacher at a local child development center. My husband and I are rediscovering each other. I am still job/work hunting after a lay-off 11 1/2 mos ago.

Other Information:
I want you to be happy,
to laugh, smile and rejoice in order that others may be made happy by you.

    I agee that Miss Andi Bug has a face. How can you not love it, tee hee She just makes me laugh. She will plant that snout down flat on the couch then just roll her eyes around looking at you. She is rotten to the core.

    Good morning. Yep, new "old" bed, lol. We were out antiquing last weekend and came across it. The price was right, so I snatched it up. I have an antique oak secretary closet and dresser in that room, but I just had a metal bed. So when I saw that, it was perfect.

    How was your Mother's Day. We had a great time.
