Thirteen years ago I lost my vision--and gained a ton of weight. About nine years ago I lost 79 pounds--and got a little bit of sight back in one eye. In the last two years I've been doing a tango off and on with about eight pounds. They leave, they come back. I have all sorts of excuses as to why, none of them valid. My goal is to finally stick to a healthy lifestyle--not to a diet plan that is temporary, but rather a healthy STYLE FOR LIFE! Also, I want to make sure I never, ever allow my level of eyesight to hold me back from achieivng anthing I choose to go for.

    Ha Ha!! Your books sound really interesting. Right now I am reading books that I bought on the underground Seattle tour the last time I was up there, it is about Doc Maynard, one of the founding fathers of Seattle. Before that, I read the Lincoln Lawyer and another book by that same author. And, prior to those books, I was reading crime novels by Lee Childs. I am addicted to his books! Chris

    Thanks for the compliments on our horses! Oh, and I worked really hard to get these 2 pounds off, that is true!

    I loved reading you blog and am going to have to read your past ones. I am adding you as my new SparkFriend and hope you add me as well. I live in the Bay Area in CA and have a horse named Dusty. Hope to see you around more often!

    Thanks for the comment! Yes, trust me, if I can go without soda this long, you can too. Honestly, the first week was the worst. I'm really enjoying Crystal Light when needed but I've noticed I've grown to love water more now too. It's only a positive! :)
