First of all I need to tell you I joined the 5% Summer Challenge again. It's a Race to Fascinating Places - 8 Weeks this Summer if your interested in checking it out. You join a supportive team and have fun as you lose 5% of your weight, make new friends, and improve your health! I am on the Spirited Underdogs Team.

I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place.

I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi . My mother is 95 and lived with us for 15 years. She's been in memory care this last year and gets weaker every day. It breaks my heart because I always promised her she would live with us until her death. I had no idea I would get old in the mean time too. Today, June 24, 2017, my beloved mother died. 95.7 years old. My heart feels broken. What an up and down ride these years with her have been. All she talked about this last year is being with her mother. She is there now.

I have 3 daughters, as of Feb 2018 they all live on this side of the Puget Sound too now. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. and she gave birth Feb 20, 2016 to a beautiful baby girl. I babysit her a couple days a week and am thrilled to do so. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 24, 19, 7 and 6, and another baby girl due in Sept 2018.

My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren again. We are the ones that moved away for 15 years. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Nine months to the day of the fire. My Mom came with us btw.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing to our goal weight and then keeping our weight off!!

    Thank you for the anniversary wishes AND the comment on my comment on your blog!(Whew! Following that? Lol)

    I’m so glad you told me how you feel about the scale. I thought I was the only one! Everyone else always writes about staying off it.

    I got on last night, and I could tell my morning wasn’t going to be what I hoped. But I know what I did wrong (late snack), and I am fixing it today. Weighing daily keeps ME in control. I always like to know what’s going on.
