I am the wife of wonderful husband of 22 years and the mom to two great kids, a 22 year old son and a 16 year old daughter. I live in the Fox Valley in Wisconsin.

Life has kicked me in the guts more than a few times. Thanks to that, I now have a solid positive mind set to tackle this hurdle of weight loss. I have gotten much better with the stinky thinking and being my own worst critic. Now I need to put into action getting the shell healthy.

My long term goal is to be 145 pounds and a healthy BMI of 24. In this season of Lent, a lot of people give up things. I have been thinking about this a lot the last several days. I don't know that I am giving something up, but I am going to be 100 pounds healthier next year on February 20, 2017! That is my goal.

    Thank you Tina! If there's anything we have learned here it's that continuing to forge ahead even when life tries to push us back keeps us moving in the right direction. I don't have to tell you about life pushing back do I?

    Thank you for your kind comment on my cardinal blog. I am trying lots of new things in retirement. Since 2014, I've made a list of new things to do each year based on the year (16 in 2016 this year). I am rather surprised at how much I like painting. Perhaps I need to consider more in depth classes at some point.

    It's a real mind shift isn't it? We don't have to like (or love) the exercise but when we discover that we do like or love the side benefits....ah...this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

    Tina, I am so happy to hear from you and relieved that Paul made it through the ordeal. I knew that there were some major health crises going on in your life but didn't know what and felt that you had more on your plate than you deserved so have been biding time with prayers for you to make it through all this. Anyway, seeing a message from you this morning is like a gift and makes me so joyful since it means you may be ready now to move on and I know you are living with a gratitude for every moment you have with those you love. I wish I were close enough to just give you the biggest bearhug you have ever had!
