Happy 2015! Reflections

Friday, January 09, 2015


Happy 2015! In the year 2012, I turned 50 years old. Turning 50 bothered me. I weighed 229 lbs. In talking with other people, I learned health problems start cropping up at this age.

In reflecting about being 50, I decided attitude--how to react is the key! I could be depressed or I could be determined, happy, etc. As a result, I decided my goal would be to live to be 100 years old. The age 50 no longer sounded so bad. As a result, I lost 54 lbs. the year I turned 50. I am now 52 heading towards 53. I have gained back 20 lbs.--yes, I admit I am human and enjoy food. I also enjoy having a healthy lifestyle--being active, including having a water addiction--love my water--in addition especially love walking, hiking, and dancing. Life goes on, and the goal is to enjoy life whatever it throws/gives you--attitude--how you react to a situation is the key. emoticon
