Time flies when you aren't paying attention!

It's been years since I logged into SparkPeople in a serious way! I got discouraged, I got busy, and I just quit. I tried different diets - Weight Watchers was probably (for me) the worst possible choice. I just wouldn't go to meetings - I'm not a meeting kind of girl, and it was torture. Mayo Clinic was never going to work because we eat out too often. Any way, I'm back.

A lot has changed since I first became a SparkPerson. The contract job I loved turned into a full-time job with lots of stress, 16 employees, and several promotions. We've lost more family members: my Granny died almost a year after my Dad at the ripe old age of 100, my father-in-law died 4 years ago at 93 and my mother-in-law died a year ago at 94. We've lost and added cats too, most recently losing a younger one unexpectedly at 7 years.

Ken and I are still going strong. He retired 8 years ago, I think, and does a lot of volunteer work. We still live in the same house, but not for long! By the end of this year, and probably sooner, we plan to relocate to New Hampshire! I will work for a few more years remotely and am very excited to make that change.

Weight-wise my goals haven't changed much. I still want to lose weight, a little more than before, and stay active and healthy. I have years ahead of me I hope, to enjoy a new life in a new part of the country!

This week is my first week of actually logging my food in ages, and I'm enjoying the process. So far. I bring breakfast and lunch in to the office most days, and that makes planning much easier. The hardest thing is incorporating enough exercise into every day, and I'm working on that.
