January 1, 2016 I started making the effort to lose weight again! I am staying away from sugar and flour almost completely. That eliminates most of the things that I love to pig out on and forces me to eat much healthier.
It seems that as soon as I stopped having sugar and flour I stopped having the insatiable cravings for cookies, candy, ice cream

My hubby got me a Fitbit for Christmas. It is motivating me to walk more everyday. I am determined to beat my step goal everyday!

In 2016 I will weigh in EVERY Wednesday.
I will try to lose every week. It's OK when I don't!

I am enjoying hiking most Weekends with my hubby. We are doing about 2- 8 miles each time. We have explored some amazing places!

I have a chronic bladder condition that sometimes limits my activities. I will not let it stop me!

Veggies have become a much bigger part of my diet and hubby, who does most of our cooking, is on board with this change. He has perfected a yummy garlicky veggie mix that we have most nights with dinner and I have in my lunch the next day. Now I am mixing them in with scrambled eggs too.

Personal Information:
I am 55, happily married to Tom. We live in Tacoma WA.
We raised 5 terrific (most of the time) kids. Now we are enjoying the freedom of them being grown up.

We rescued an Italian Mastiff in Nov. 2015, we named her Elbe and just love her.

I work as the manager at a distribution center in Kent.

I like to explore, hike, garden and travel.

There are many wonderful hiking trails not far from my home in Tacoma that I visit often.
Tom and I have gone hiking at least once a week for over six years now.

    Thanks for reading my blog Wendy. I wasn't sure if I should tell everyone or not, but it is what it is! I have no choice but to deal with it. I need to be healthy now. I always saw myself living to be OLD. But this makes you stop and see that we never know how much or how little time we have and I want to live the rest of my life (Lord willing a LONG life)the healthiest and happiest I can.

    You are doing great with all your hikes keep it up. emoticon
