I can use a smaller bath mat! I don't drip as much as when I weighed 80 pounds more!! Now, that seems like a silly why and really there is more to it. It is easier to get in and out of the bath tub or shower. Whether I soak and relax, or scrub z... Read more

I may never have 6-pack abs, but my only chance of improving the pudgy stomach is smart eating and regular exercise. At least I'm going to keep it from getting worse. At this point I'm not going to be self-conscious in any outfit. Good enough. Y... Read more

A good true funny happened just when I needed it: Yesterday at Senior Dance I met a woman who had just returned from a month in France. I asked her if she spoke French. She said, "I can say croissant and that's enough!"... Read more

My triglycerides are good now; when I was obese that reading was also high. (good cholesterol and blood pressure previously enumerated) Health is definitely a top motivator, especially as I age. I've previously stated how good lifestyle... Read more

I don't mind being in pictures. I used to avoid the camera; now I'm okay with it. I'm okay in the back; I'm okay in the front. I don't stress about pictures at all.... Read more

When I'm fit I can walk all day with no problem. My family has Disney World passes and I can last all day. I'm frequently with others and see others who are struggling, but I'm raring to go! I will need to re-build my fitness level once I g... Read more
