I've been making small lifestyle improvements over a period of more than 10 years. Looking back over my life I realize that I can thank good genes for getting me as far as I am! I don’t think I’ve EVER really lived a healthy lifestyle. Even when I was thinner or in better shape or both I got there by some really sketchy means. No, I was never bulimic, just never ate healthily when I was getting thin or staying thin. I smoked for many years. I still drink more alcohol than I should, though I am MUCH improved over my past.

I am a realist. I’m not interested in temporary “fixes”; however, I will only make permanent changes that are convenient and relatively painless. Great habits and routines have to be doable or they don't get done.
My progress so far:
~ Quit smoking
~ Cut alcohol consumption by 90%
~ Upped my water intake from almost none to just about enough
~ Cut my stress levels enormously
~ Found the healthiest food lifestyle and will follow it for life
~ Improved the quality of the food I buy
~ Lost 35 pounds pretty easily
~ Worked many small fitness routines into my lifestyle
~ Improved my thyroid health
What's left?
~ Better managing stress and anxiety
~ Getting enough sleep more regularly
~ Creating a better work/life balance
~ Losing 30 pounds of fat

My Goals:
I've never liked making goals, because once you reach them you just have to make new ones. Therefore I now have Intentions, rather than Goals. I mean, you can have Goals and never, ever work towards them. Intentions, on the other hand, imply a little more action, though not necessarily in any specific timeframe. Suits me to a T! My intention is to Be Happy and Live Long and Well.


My Program:
I'm permanently low carb. I am well nourished without much of the empty calories of grains, starches, or sugars. I feel better in most ways than I ever had in the past!

I am trying to be more active, as opposed to being an "exerciser". Exercise for its own sake bores me, therefore I won't do much of it. A few minutes a week of light weights, a lot of walking and running stairs while at work, and household upkeep will have to do me.



Personal Information:
58, happily married, two terrific sons and two adorable cats. Love me some video games!

    It worries me who else 2016 is going to turn around to claim this year. So much talent has gone.

    As for the politics, the world is scaring me. We are considering moving to Scotland, but it breaks our hearts to leave the home we have created, hours of work from my Dad... but it we dither, Scotland may rightly declare independence and it will be harder for us to get there.

    Woubbie,

    Thanks for all your support and answering my comments! I didn't know that I have to answer in here or by sparkmail to you to see. Your words on my blog when I published for the first time my picture in swimsuit, were very sweet. Thanks a lot!
    I'm very happy with this low-carb way of living. May God Bless the pioneers in this field and people who, like you, support us, the beginners!

    Another season upon us, of gout sufferers adrift without our fearless leader!

    Hope all is well and thanks for the kind words and goodies. Re-read your profile page too - incongruous that a person as healthful as you was a self-described smoker for many years. Them again, back in the day, cigarettes were quintessentially cool (as you were/are). How times change!
