I decided to change my focus this year on being healthy instead of losing weight. I hope that losing weight will be the consequence of the choices that I make to help my body be healthy. I had it the other way around before, trying to lose weight so I could be healthy. Now I want to be healthy first, being thinner second. I know that as I get healthier, I will be happier.

I have been feeling better as I have eaten healthier and exercised. I am going to be 60 years old in March. I have a desire to lose sixty pounds for my 60th year. I don't think I can do it by my birth date, but I certainly can do it before my birth year is over.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and your lovely words of encouragement. It's a daily struggle but I'm trying. I know more than anything my mom wanted to be healthy. I know I need to take care of myself. It's just so hard. We used shop together, cook together. It's like having my right arm missing. Each Day I am trying. Thank you again. The support means so much. I wish you good luck on your journey

    Thank you for thinking of me. Yes, our beautiful granddaughter was born August 1. She is so beautiful. Check out my SP page. I posted some pictures of her and also new ones of our grandsons.

    I can't tell you what it means that you cared enough to remember me. I'm not doing well eating. We are moving the first part of Oct and I will be near my sister. She and I are planning to help each other with our weight problems. Wish us good luck!

    Thank you again. You are a very special person and a wonderful SP friend.
