Life is kinda like a mountain trail, you can look at it or you can hike it, either way it is up to you to make the choice.

Choosing a route, a routine, an eating program that will support a healthy life, but also an enjoyable one. A life with NO chocolate would not be great..so I will have some. A life without bread..one of my great weaknesses, would not be fun. .. so I will have some!
The bottom line is SOME..not ALL and within reason!

I believe after floating my boat thru several trials and errors in both eating programs and exercise insanities..that moderation is indeed the key. CI/CO...is still the best way to go! Thus said it is up to me to moderate what goes in and what effort goes out!

Success as they say rests in your hands. But you must follow the path to find it. So easy to fail...give up and just say..Thas how it is.

Not This Time..Not Me...This time I believe in ME..

    Theft IS theft, Katie. Doesn't matter if it is a family member...it is even worse then!!

    I heard the same thing happened when Ray's Mother passed away back in the '70's.

    So many siblings and it was like a free-for-all, grabbing fest.

    I am thankful that I was able to minimize by telling people "NO" before Ray passed.
    I told them that anything he had before me was long gone, and what we purchased together was mine. Thankfully Ray backed me up on that.

    I am so sorry you had to go through this while you are still very much in grief and grieving. Sometimes death brings out the worst in people.

    Remember - it's your home and you can tell people to leave the premises. I went further and told Ray's daughter that she is not welcome at my Tree Planting Memorial. It's a private ceremony - just Me, the Tree and a Hole to put it in.

    I decided that this is my home and people cannot feel they are welcome if they are not invited. That is my and your decision - no one else's.

    Huggers, 🤗🤗

    Thanks for your support on my blog! Duckweed is a non-toxic aquatic plant with very small “leaves” that grows on the surface of the water. In this case, several narrower sections of the lake were completely covered, which made it harder to paddle 😩
