Weight issues have been part of my life since I was little. It was hard to be a curvy teen when Twiggy was the model of the day! I always seem to find my favorite clothing stops one size below whatever I am able to wear.

SO...I am working on bad habits need to become good ones. My blood sugars need to be back under control.

Update 2011 ~ My scale is not showing progress, and it is not the fault of the scale. Today I will reset my tracker. I AM healthier and more knowledgeable than I was when I started. I MUST recommit though if I am going to achieve my goals. So, FRESH START today.

Update, September 13, 2015. As of this morning, the first day after a 12 day vacation, I have lost 3 more pounds and surpassed my original goal. What a shock to realize that. I have reset my goal for another ten pounds. I am not in a hurry, but am pleased with my progress.

Update November 11, 2017
I am walking at least a minimum of 12000 steps a day including 10 flights of stairs. I am astonished to find myself bouncing around at and just below the goal set for me by Weight Watchers around 1973! Got there but couldn't stay there. NEVER expected to see those numbers again! Other than my problematic blood sugars, I am in excellent health, staying active EVERY day and am one HAPPY girl!

My Goals:
1) Better health..lower blood sugar

3) Feel good, like how I look

    I strained it last Wednesday on my hike because it was so icy and I was using my leg muscles to go down the hills without falling, then it felt better so I went on a 6 mile hike Saturday. I have had Wyatte for 2 weeks everyday so that hasn't helped. It felt better yesterday, but went to work last night and it just didn't hold up. So I am resting for a few days. I have been icing it and I take an Aleve at night before I go to bed. I don't like taking pills of any kind so it is just going to take longer for it to heal.

    Thanks for your concern. Someone else commented on my feed who had a knee replacement and she also told me not to push it. I will rest until Sunday and see how it feels.

    Hi Asta,

    Thank you for your comment on my feed. No she wasn't a witness. Yes we do need that new system. Such a tragedy! I just feel so sad for my sister. To lose any loved one is sad, but a child, it is going to be unbearable for her.

    As always, thanks for your concern.

    Thank you Asta for offering to let me bend your ear regarding the struggle I have been going through. Just having to do with my son and Wyatte. I know for sure we are all going through something in this system. We just have to endure and wait patiently.

    Hope you are doing well and enjoyed your week of activity in your congregation.

    Hope you're doing well. Winter has arrived here in Cali. It's nice to get some rain! How was the visit with grandson? I bet you took some nice pics! Have a terrific weekend.

    That is nice that you have your grandson for 10 days. Glad you are having fun with him. It is hard to get Wyatte's mom to part with him, so I don't foresee ever having Wyatte for a long time like that.
