Just a quick update, (Oct 9th 2016) having a hard time. I want to lose the weight but am lazy and don't want to do the work. Need to change my mind set, that is for sure.

I am still struggling to return to MY life. Although is has been almost 3 years since our adult daughter died (cancer) I think I am realizing that there is no returning to what my life was. This is a new path that I now walk and in the quiet moments, some days can be rather bleak.

Most people have lost someone special in their lives. (Though a parent out living a child seems to go against all the laws of nature!)

I have to take control of my life so that I can enjoy retirement with my husband and long term, not be a burden on any one. With the cost of health care I have to think of the dollar and cents that my continuing unhealthy life style may cost myself and the family.

Thank you for reading, I hope that you find your path to happiness and health even if you stop along the way, never give up on yourself. Life is to short not to live it to its fullest.

Never give up, if that seems to much right now........then say to yourself "I won't give up today but I will think about it tomorrow."
(What that really means is that tomorrow becomes today, and you can not give up on today.)

Just some quotes that I found interesting.

Major mind changes occur when the pain of where you are now, is far greater, than the pain it will take to change!

'If you don't take care of your body - where you gonna live?' By George Carlin.

No one can go back and make a brand new start.
Everyone can start from now and make a brand new ending!

"Women are angels and when someone breaks our wings we simply continue to fly...on a broomstick. We are flexible like that."
