It's Time

It's time to take care of me, starting with my health and weight.

I accept responsibility for being an emotional eater. Now that I have acknowledge that out loud, I need to find the reason and deal with it and change my habits in order to improve my physical health, mental health and spiritual health.

Update: 9/23/08 taken off of high blood presure medication. I've taken it for 15 years!

10/12/08 Gall stones, painful! Gall Bladder removed

I live in WA (foothills of the Cascades, about 40 miles south of Mt St Helens) Married, I have 3 sons and 1 daughter (grown adults) and 7 grandkids scattered around the states, Ohio, Texas and Washington. Two step-daughters, both in Oregon Two dogs, Roxy/Shih Tzu and Lily/Yellow Lab. They keep me busy.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading Danielle Steel. Typical chick flick in print. Don't always find the time to read. Same with my flute. It's been my emotional release and self expression since I was 9 (1961).

Enjoy camping and hanging out with family and friends.

There is a saying that seems to always fit my life "You don't always get what you want, but you may find you get what you need".

I'm back. I was so excited to see that you stopped by to say hello. My weight is back where it was. I did it before I can do it again. I took my granddaughter spring turkey hunting last spring. We didn't get a turkey but had a great get to know each other time!
