I work full time in healthcare. I'm 58 years old. My husband passed away in March 2019. He was 59, disabled and not well. We were married for 35 years. I have 1 cat and 2 rabbits that I adopted from the SPCA. I am working on healthy habits and staying optimistic and energetic. I want to find a healthy balance in all things. I want to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. I want off the yo-yo weight loss/weight gain cycle! I love the 12 steps. I want to live a life of mindfulness, aware of my lifestyle choices.
