Little Moments Bring Big Memories
Tuesday, March 01, 2016
Maybe it is due to my friend dying, last week. but I have been spending some time recalling memories of the past. When you go to a funeral, you run into many old friends that you have not seen in years. The first thing you do, with old friends, is reminence about past experiences. I have thought about this and decided to keep better track of experiences that occur each day. I need to write things down, to take more pictures and to share experience with my children. After a parent is gone, there are so many questions that you wish you had asked them. There is no time like the present to make memories.
While looking at photos, I remembered that I am 50 pounds heavier than when I graduated from high school. In college, I lived in a dorm. My method of travel was walking. It is no wonder that I lost more weight by walking all over a large campus. That means that I am 60 pounds heavier than in college. WOW!! What a shock. As many of us can say, I never dreamed I would gain so much weight in my life. I lost baby weight after giving birth. I eventually put it back on. At 60, I am still working to get it off.
My new plan is to stick with portion control. My biggest issues are that I put too much food on my plate. When I go out to dinner, I always think that I may as well "clean my plate."
This week I have gone back to my good eating plan, I did this when I was young and thin.....leave food on my plate or use it as leftovers.
I am looking for good results.
