I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 65 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (49years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Thanks on a quick and supportive comment on my Answering my own question thinking blog. Control the veggies and added ingredients and up the protien is probably the best answer! As you voted. I guess I wanted someone to post the reply saying "eat whatever, whenever and never gain a pound." And I'd believe them...yeh right. Lol

    I had a One also and really liked it until it died. I’m now wearing the Ulta (?). The little one. It’s ok but I sure miss my One! Thinking about wrist Alta but have heard such mixed reviews that i’m not willing to make the jump.

    Thank you for the kind words and the goodie about my comments on Slimmerjesse’s blog about Keto. I have added you as a friend because I love having supportive people on this journey. I wish you well with your low carb plan. I keep my carbs around 75 so I’m far from Keto but it is working for me.

    When losses get small, I always go back to weighing, measuring and tracking to get things moving. It’s always one of those 3.

    Yup yup y up - I will probably always imagine I want a reward and realize I resent them instead. Unless it's a happy feeling - and that is the true reward, eh?

    Thanks for the bloglove.

    Well, she was a pain in the butt last time and I felt a serious amount of anxiety connected to her demands of me and my time. It was a few years back. I kind of forgot about it. Now that she has become unhappy with what I delivered, I remember VERY clearly what happened a few years ago. I don't like it but I will learn from it...JUST SAY NO is what I'm learning!!
