It took this Peony two years before it bloomed. Once it did, it was beautiful.

I am not going to say, "it is time that I get this weight under control", because I have said that 1000 plus times. I am not going to say that "today I start a new lifestyle", I have said that 1000 plus times. I have made all the affirmative, postive quotes that I know 1000 plus times and here I sit 68 years old, just as fat as I have ever been wondering what it is going to take for me to get healthier. Now that was a long sentence. LOL I want so badly to be a size 18. Heck I'd love to be a straight size 20. I am a true 22W and I hate it. I have been 22W/24W most of my adult life and I am totally sick of it. Now, am I sick enough to do anything about it? The truth of the matter is, I don't know.
My mother lost 50 lbs in one summer season eating 1/2 c of starches and 1c of veggies at her meals. No matter what she had, it was 1/2 c of this and 1 cup of that and she did great. I have all of these fancy diets out there such as Weight Watchers, South Beach, and the like and I am holding out and for what, I do not know.
