Hi! The most pictures you see on this page are several years old (I did update my profile picture 1/16/2109). I don't have any recent pictures to post because I am having trouble facing the fact that I gained 63 pounds over the past five years. It's a long story that I don't care to relate here, but anyway...What I do want to relate is that I'm now in a better place and I am eager to get healthy and have more fun again! Gaining 63 pounds was easy--but it was not fun. And it left me with a lot of regret. But it did also leave me with lots of new knowledge about myself--how I feel about myself, my life, my needs and desires. I no longer have the need to be 'skinny,' for one thing. I'll be 60 years old in February 2019. Being a twig is the furthest thing from my mind now! I want to be fit, strong, and healthy. Period! And--I just want to live a healthy lifestyle--not a temporary, lose-20-pounds-in-a-month lifestyle. My health is a long-term, lifetime investment!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I had bought just a simple scale from walmart....and I just don't think it is the most accurate thing. Hence the reason for the upgrade. It is a little bit of a pain to weigh everything, but it does help me see how I was overestimated serving sizes before this.

    I got a digital scale off of for 19.99, which isn't really to bad.

    You look great, by the way...

    Hope to chat more!!
