and again, and again. Since I posted this headline in 2008 have continued to gain gain gain. The picture as background was taken around that time, but inset you see what I look like now.

So in 10 years have taken a giant step back and am unhappy with who I am now.

As I approach 70 have arthritis - made worse by excess weight
little energy - thanks to excess weight
little enthusiasm for life and work - thanks to excess weight

Unfortunately, Spark People has not been enough and have added weight watchers to the mix. Am not thrilled with their system, but its a proven success. Unfortunately, have no meetings nearby and on line isn't enough. Signed up for personal coaching, at least for three months. Hopefully that will be the boost I need

Meanwhile the DH has his own issues and is so far refusing to accept his older body can't do what his younger brain wants; from activity to eating style. Am hoping to "guilt" him into supporting my diet - and help him at the same time. Certainly am not interested in making 6 meals a day, 3 is chore enough!

So if he doesn't like what I cook, he'll have to make his own!

Anyway, each decade I make the same vow to enter the next decade in better weight and health. and here I am again having failed at 50, and at 60. all things considered, I cannot fail for 70!!
