59 years old -- and challenging myself to meet life head on.


Proud to be a Courageous Copper Couger!! Gonna Rock the next 12 Weeks!!

Update on 9-19-12:

Over the past several months as I have found the energy and desire to work on what I can control and to try not to fret about what I cannot. Exercise and eating better have helped me lose my first twenty pounds -- I am so looking forward to the next several months to see what I can accomplish!

Posted in July 2012:

Life's rollercoaster has been in the downhill mode the last two years, and I haven't responded in many positive ways. Since 2009 I gained back 35 lbs of the 40 I had lost the two years before.

And -- feeling old, and out of shape and over the hill. Oh, a whole list of "woe is me".

But on my 59th birthday, in June 2012, I decided that what I could do was lose one pound per week for the next 52 weeks. Not two, not 1-1/2, but one pound a week. Would that not be an excellent goal??

I also decided to work on just one habit every two weeks. I started with water -- just drink a glass -- when I wake up, before every meal, and before bedtime. The second habit was getting out of bed, putting on my shoes and going for a walk.

So far so good . . .

    "You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
    You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
    It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
    Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
    Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew." -Barbara Cage

    Have a great day, Dolly

    May the wind always be at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
