I've been away but need to be back. Weight gain due to lack of exercise and a lot of stress - 2015 was challenging! It's time to regain some balance, and prioritize my health and fitness correctly again!!
Couldn't believe my clothes just kept getting tighter, and decided it was time to plan and create the 2nd half of my life, and manage well the parts I can control!
Joined on May 9 with the goal of losing about 15-20 pounds... didn't own a scale but I didn't let that stop me - - mainly just wanted to fit my clothes again :-) Being active and eating right is terrific. Giving myself grace when I "fail" is good work. Loving the journey... UPDATE:
Losing the weight has been more difficult that I had anticipated. Although my clothes generally fit better (and I fit almost everything again), the pounds just don't seem to want to go anywhere. Tempting to "give up", but I am going to keep at it until I see the results I know are possible. The good news is that the weight not releasing is keeping me way more active and engaged with healthy eating than I would be otherwise.
What about YOU? :-)

It's your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart, and my life.
Remove the have nots
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.

Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots, and
should nots that obstruct
my life, happiness,
good health, desires, and goals.

And, most of all,
I ask that, if I cannot do it myself,
you remove from my mind,
my heart, and my life all of the
'am nots' that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

    My address book cover is actually just a small portion of your vintage image. I've got the dancer on the bottom left and a portion of the tent to her right, but that's it. Inside however are vintage images of MORE hula dancers and other Hawaiian images. Very retro!

    Thank-you so much for the comment on my blog! Ironically, the two weeks since I wrote that blog have been less than healthy for me as some serious and unexpected stress hit, which through me off course. But I'm getting back on track and seeing your comment really made my day emoticon

    Wishing you a wonderful rest of your week!

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, "In Memory of My Dear Friend, Little_Queen." The Mary Pickford quote was one of her favorites. Have a blessed day.
