I am a 55 yr old grandmother and mother to a beautiful daughter. I have 2 wonderful granddaughter that are 18 and 4. I am so proud of them and want to be around for a long time to enjoy them. I had been vegan for about 6 months and felt so incredibly healthy and happy. I had lost around 30lbs and felt like I had found the secret to what is considered body mind and spirit. I felt like I was complete. Unfortunataly this has been a very rough year starting with them closing my store that I worked at. I am still with the same company but my position has changed and so has my wage. Yet I feel lucky to still have a job but it has been a very hard change. I think I have finally adjusted to things and am ready to start losing weight again and feeling good about myself. I am starting over. Wish me luck! I have had an eating disorder before so I have to be careful to not get caught up in the dieting craze. I have to concentrate on being healthy and eating healthy foods. I have arthritis which had destroyed 2 knees, my back and neck. I have replaced one knee but can't afford to do the other one. Maybe one day. I have to work into exercising. But I have to get started. This is Christmas day. I think it is a perfect day to start.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. It's hard to be positive sometimes when I'm in a loop of negative thinking, so your comments definitely help a lot!! I'm encouraged to move forward with a positive attitude, talk to people about it, and remember that I'm always still learning. :)

    Thanks for the blog comment. I live in Australia which is why I expected better from the nectarines as they should be at their peak. I seem to remember them being much better when I was a kid. Then again, in those days we were more likely to buy them from roadside stalls. These days the chain supermarkets seem to have most farmers locked into contracts with them. And they demand the fruit be picked quite unripe so it's still hard enough to transport well. Blecchh, Big Food!
    all the best,
