I'm gonna fly like an eagle

I''ve lived most of my life battling my weight and sluggish metabolism. My first ''diet'' was in 3rd grade when the Dr. told my mom she should limit the amount of pasta, bread and potatoes she gave me. I love fresh flavors and I like my food ''naked'' without sauces or gravies for the most part. I love trying new things but don''t ask me to eat curry! Never have liked the flavor and probably never will.
update: my daughter got me to try curry and I actually liked it. Must be my taste ...

update: my daughter got me to try curry and I actually liked it. Must be my taste buds are changing as I get older. I didn''t like coffee until after I went through menopause. Go figure!
After being stuck for what seems like forever, weight is finally coming off. I''m wondering if it is due to coming off taking Nexium daily.

Personal Information:
My name is Tammy and I live in north central Vermont with my husband, Maine Coon Cat and Basset Hound puppy. I recently statred working for the Girl Scouts of the Green & White Mountains, my dream job! We have an adult daughter who is currently living in Philly. I am gluten intolerant and have fibromyalgia. My Velmoose screenname is leftover from when I owned a gift shop called The Velvet Moose. I just liked the name so I decided to keep it even after I closed the store.

I love being outdoors. I run a Day Camp during the summer and am coordinator of outdoor programs for GSGWM. I like to kayak, bike and walk in the woods although I don't get a chance to do any of it often.
I love adventure and sci-fi movies. Love TV and not ashamed to admit it! Our television is often on SyFy, Food Network or Travel channel.
My idea of the perfect vacation is camping in Maine or touring Walt Disney World in Florida.
