Oh My Gosh, this is my Tenth Year on SparkPeople and I'm still overweight. I joined right before my 50th Birthday and I'm now 60. Well, there's no deadline on our dreams. This will be the year that I create healthier eating and exercise habits; give up diet soda; try new things; be more adventurous; keep a positive attitude; and live happy! It won't happen overnight, but I can make it happen. I'm DEE-termined.

"I will not feel deprived when I turn down junk food. I will feel empowered that I made the healthy choice." ~Unknown

"The more consistent you are, the quicker you will lose weight." ~Linda Spangle

"When done correctly, healthy meals can taste even better than full-fat restaurant meals." I've always known this... now it's time to get cooking and find healthy recipes.

Remember the opening song on the Mary Tyler Moor show (1999)? "You can have the town, why don't you take it. You're going to make it after all." Hat thrown in the air. That's my theme song for 2017.

Focusing on good habits: Fresh and healthy food, accompanied by vigorous exercise, water, sleep, fresh air, and FUN!!

    Did you get all the furniture moved and Auntie all settled? Fingers are crossed that you did.

    How did the potluck go? How about after the move dinner?

    I went to the doctor today and she said I was down 10 pounds from last month. Hum I am not sure exactly how that happened but I will take it. LOL

    Yep uber stressed but it is what it is. It will all come out in the end. My 2 little stinky boys are my stress relief! They are good at it.

    Yes she totally did I had a client yesterday tell me how much she hated them LOL Amy (boss lady) doesn't think. Our office isn't like the other 4 we have a working office in that our clients come and sit in our offices and stay while we do their returns. It's not a drop off situation like the other offices. They are pretty but they won't be there all season, they will break I see it happening, Just hope it doesn't happen while a client is sitting in them.

    Extensions are done thankfully now to figure out these financials that have been hanging on my head for months. I just can't get them the way they want them. I may tell them to find another place to go. It's frustrating!

    You got this pot luck. Don't deprive yourself the deserts just remember smaller portions. No reason not to get a small piece and enjoy every bite. Enjoy yourself. And be safe moving furniture this evening. I am sure you will be glad when that is done!Auntie will probably feel more settled as well.

    Have a wonderful day today my dear friend!

    Good luck on the pasta pot luck! Just sit away from the food and only have a small plate. It's what I do.... except the 2 donuts - that was a splurge! 😊

    Oh bless her heart. I am sure the move is a bit stressful for her. Maybe that is why her sugar is wonky?

    Good for you for keeping your head in the game, It’s so hard to do when you have a million things to do. I am sure proud of you!

    Remodel is done. But, we don’t have everything put back together yet. We have to finish with 2 of the offices. That aren’t really being used. We got slowed down due to extensions being due today. But we are getting there. It really looks nice. But not really practical for a busy tax office. She picked chairs that will not last all tax season. They are accent chairs not meant to really be sat in a lot by a lot of different people.

    Hi Dee! I wish it was only one cookie! The dinner was pizza, ziti, garlic knots and salad. Dessert was a "cake" (stack) of donuts!!🤐
