I retired at 62 and returned to work part time. However I got more and more involved with my community, Slow Food and Environmental activism, I have since retired again.

I am retired and busy. I cannot see ever stopping completely. I make a little extra $ here and there and do volunteer work, as well.

Thanks @BOHEMIANCAT.

I'd love to retire into a volunteer role to helps the community in some manner. Want more time for hobbies and travel, but also to service in some manner too.

I did the point system that counted fruits & veggies. I've heard the newest version considers them 0 points. Well, up to a certain amount, I'm sure. Since I didn't do that one, I'm not sure if I would've been as successful. I bought a key chain clicker, points calculator and a step tracker. I still use the step tracker but I don't track points anymore. If I was more serious about losing these last 10lbs, I know I could do it on WW. :-)

Linda....you could easily lose 4lbs/month and reach your weight-loss goal of 50lbs in a year. I lost 25lbs in 3 mo. doing the WW Points & walking everyday about 3yrs ago. I ate whatever I wanted but I only ate what I could track. That was key ! Oh, I also did a lot of cheating on that, meaning, there were quite a few days I went over on my points but, I still continually lost weight. :-)

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Well that makes me hungry! I guess my favorite is roast beef with potatoes and carrots. ... or brisket cooked low and slow with potato salad and german coleslaw.
I love salads too, with everything on them, peppers, radishes, cucumbers, berries, etc.

When I've had a really bad day I'm more likely to cook. Being in the kitchen and creating is very calming for me. The chopping, stirring, tasting etc. allows me to review my day in a different frame of mind.

I'm with you Linda !
I just realized I didn't answer this when I posted it... Lol
I'm more apt to go out and eat though on really crappy days. Be waited on, no dishes to clean and I choose items on the menu that I don't make at home ( well, when I cook )

If it is a really crappy day, probably number 2 or 3 and try to make healthy choices with both.

Okay, so....you had a really crappy day and now it's time to think about what's for dinner.

A) Cook something at home
B) Go out to eat and relax
C) Pick up something fast and bring it home to eat

Oatmeal with blueberries, cinnamon, flax meal and chia seed.

When time permits I love scrambled eggs with toast. Keeps me full for many hours. The fiber in the oatmeal though is a great way to start the day.

I LOVE peanut butter and toast but try to limit my carbs so my favorite breakfast right now is an omelette w 2 eggs, onions, tomatoes, feta cheese and thyme. YUMMY! and I'm never hungry before lunch (sometimes not even hungry til 1:30 or 2:00 in the afternoon).

New question, what is your favorite breakfast?

I usually eat cereal, cold or cooked and now I have added a boiled egg.

I forced myself to eat a breakfast croissant before I started work this morning. Egg/Sausage/Cheese.
Yes...I admit, I felt pretty good for about 4 hours.
I also bought a pkg of 100% Whole Wheat English Muffins, jar of Honey & real Butter to nosh on while driving to work. Hopefully, it will eventually become a norm for me.
I have never, ever been a breakfast eater. It's always been hit or miss with me. (Mostly miss). :-o

The nutritionist told me I was not eating enough for breakfast and lunch and not enough protein for those two meals. I have a plan now that I can live with.

Linda, you really don't want to be like me.... Lol
Not eating very much is not conducive to weight loss.
When I eat around 1,000-1,200 cal/day of healthy food choices for a reasonable amount of time, the scale shows lbs. lost. I lose inches and feel pretty good.
But I never stick to it long enough to achieve my goal weight.
I really think it's my pain Meds that cause my loss of appetite.

So.....while I'm working this weekend (as usual), what are your plans ? :-)

Not thinking about food... wish I had that problem. I seem to be always hungry, but I control it or eat raw veggies. Occasionally I succumb to baked chips or chocolate...

Here's a tip, L-Lysine helps ulcers or canker sores in your mouth. Since I started eating meat again, no problem!

Linda, so sorry you experienced ulcers in your mouth and so happy they're gone ! Whew !!
When I'm done with this current bottle of Probiotics I will try the Phillips.
Red meat is my favorite. I use to eat it A LOT ! Heh heh
My eating habits are terrible ( to say the least )...I can go an entire day without even thinking about food and just drink coffee and water (which really upsets my husband). He has made one of his missions in life to call me from work at night and ask me, "What did you eat today".
I know that my digestive issues have to do with what I eat and the fact that I eat very little. I really should take better care of my body

Could be, but if I don't take them I have problems of an unmentionable kind. I take the Phillips because they are less expensive than the one my doctor recommended...Align. $26, really? I did not take the generic because it had only one ingredient and that is found in yogurt. I don't really like yogurt and the ones I do like have too much sugar content.

PattiMCD - beef initially. Just a note, I bought a generic probiotic. Maybe if I spent more money instead of going cheap, they would have worked better??

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

I take probiotics and cannot live without them!

Patricia, I was vegetarian for a few months and then started getting ulcers in my mouth. So I am eating meat again, but still have vegetarian days. My body needs those amino acids provided by meats. I eat beef, chicken and fish. I am eating meat about three days a week for the evening meal only, because dh is a meat eater.

I was taking one for a while and, sorry, I didn't see any big difference. What made a difference for me was substituting some vegan meals for some meat meals during the week.

I hope you have luck with the probiotic, though!

It does take you back. I loved Nancy Drew!

I am reading Love, The Way to Victory by Kenneth Hagin and next, Deciphering End-Time Prophetic Codes by Perry Stone. Heavy stuff.

Nancy Drew emoticon I have the original hard cover collection from 1 to 64 some of them the first printing (Applewood republished them at the 75th anniversary) so original. I love to sit on the balcony and re-read these wonderful books of a time before the internet, cellphone and social media.

DH does not like the atmosphere he is subjected to at work, but likes the work he does. I had to quit due to health or I would still be working.
