My goal for 2020 is to lose 20 pounds. In 2019, I lost 30 pounds before falling off the wagon. I gained back 11 pounds, but that means I had a 19 pound loss for the year. That's a Win. Imagine where I could be in 5 years if I lost 20 pounds a year. I'd be at my goal of losing 100 pounds. Would I like to lose all the weight sooner? Of course, but if it takes me 5 years, I'd still have all the weight gone. So, I'm going to focus on losing that first 20 pounds.

"When done correctly, healthy meals can taste even better than full-fat restaurant meals." I've always known this... now it's time to get cooking and find healthy recipes.

Remember the opening song on the Mary Tyler Moor show (1999)? "You can have the town, why don't you take it. You're going to make it after all." Hat thrown in the air. That's my theme song for 2017.

Focusing on good habits: Fresh and healthy food, accompanied by vigorous exercise, water, sleep, fresh air, and FUN!!

    I am doing great! Sadly I don't get to pick the boys up. Missy's schedule changed. She will be working 6:30-2;30 and I work 7-3 so while I don't get to pick them up, I can still go and play with them anytime now. Matthew is now allowing it.LOL In fact we just got back from there. So glad we have our bond! Love those boys that is for sure

    So excited for you!

    Yeah! You made your 20 lbs in 2020! Awesome!!!!

    As for the move, we are moving approximately 1500 miles from this area! But, the good part, is the area, actually the TOWN has a HOA for the whole town, in which you pay a SMALL monthly fee, which gives you access to hiking trails, golf courses, recreational areas, centers, etc. That said, there are THREE beautiful locations that have classes, much like the senior center, and POOLS!!! Indoor and Outdoor!!! This is not a 50+ community, like a separate subdivision, but the Whole Town, Village, has this established for all residents.

    Another big plus, this is the location that my husband had his emergency surgery in 2003. The same doctors are there. We have already established that we will be there patients! WooHoo! Currently, both my husband and I are doing awesome, all our surgeries are done, thank Goodness!!!! So now, for a healthier, happier life, and getting back on track!

    We honestly can not wait. GOD is good, God has shown us the way, and believe me, I feel it is positively the BEST move for us! I will do my best, once we move to Post Photos, Get More Involved, etc. Just need to get there and get settled.
