almost a year!

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Time flies. I have been taking classes this fall at the local community college. It has been a lot of fun. Courses feel very different when you're not worried about grade point average and getting a job, etc. Am almost finished for the semester. My favorite was ceramics ~ have never taken art classes before and the instructor was exceptional. drawing 101 was fun and inventive. And last there is Spanish and by golly, I'm finally learning a second language. Won't be attending classes in the winter term because I worry about icy walkways but perhaps this summer or next fall. Am continuing with the Spanish with Rosetta Stone and a fun app called "Duolingo". Need to find some people to chat with so I don't lose ground. :)

I've lost about 50 pounds and have just been maintaining for the last two months. I exercise every day and have not gained back any weight. I still track food and water. I've become a comitted believer. In January I will begin the work on the next 50 pounds. I think this will be a steeper climb but Iosing 50#s already has helped me feel 100% better than I did just about a year ago.

Hopefully I will be a better correspondent and blogger beginning in January when I'm not doing homework!!

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day. Don't fret about the food ~ aim for consistency. We can do this!

JinLynn thank you so much for your constant support!!!

mdl ~ A happy camper :)

    Love it that you're talking classes! AND they sound like a lot of fun. My brother is fluent in five languages, and I only have English, so I may look into learning another language. You've done a fabulous job losing 50 pounds. Keep up the good work! The new year always brings so many possibilities. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hola!! I am impressed by all the things you are learning. What a great way to keep the brain cells active. About 4 years ago I took a couple of on-line Spanish courses, but with no one to practise with I have lost most of what I learned. I will have to get a Rosetta stone program and start again.
    Did you know that there are some Spanish teams on Spark people? That might be a way for you to keep up what you have learned.
    Enjoy your week. And have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    The feeling of having lost weight is wonderful. When the next 50 pounds goes you will feel totally amazing.
