I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes especially with my eating habits!

August 2018

Four and a half years since I lost my husband. I still talk to him but know one day I will see him. I have discovered that I’m stronger than I ever thought. I continue to travel and have learned I can do things he always did.





June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!

    It’s Motivational Monday . . .

    • When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind, and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. – Phyllis Bottome

    • Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. - Bruce Lee

    • All the mistakes I ever made were when I wanted to say 'No' and said 'Yes'.
    - Moss Hart

    • Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on. - Les Brown

    Don’t agonize over your mistakes. It really doesn’t help you in any way, and may actually keep you from moving forward, and being more proactive in the future. It’s been shown in studies that helping people to control their eating in a less rigid. more compassionate, and understanding matter when they make a diet mistake might actually help to promote healthier eating in the future.

    It was observed that those who treated themselves with compassion when they overate, or ate a “restricted” food, might be more successful at regulating their eating because they are less motivated to eat in order to cope with negative self–feelings, and this might be particularly true of restrictive eaters. Simply put, these people might be able to remain aware of their goals for healthy eating because they have a “clear head” that is not cluttered with negative, critical unpleasant thoughts and feelings.

    So it seems that self-compassion in the wake of our mistakes may help us to better monitor and control our eating. Those who are very restrictive in their dieting and learn to treat themselves compassionately when they break their diets, and avoid the self–criticism and the accompanying guilt, appear to be able to recognize the fact that everyone eats unhealthily once in a while. By doing this, they might control their eating more effectively than those who focus on the negative implications and guilty feelings of their eating mistakes and failures.

    It's Wonderful ~ Woman ~ Wednesday!
    ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸
    This is the 2nd installment of my poem.
    ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸ ♥ `*•.¸♥ `*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ To my very strong and powerful friend`*•.¸`*•.¸
    `*•.¸ `*•.¸ reading this message right now `*•.¸

    If you really knew me you’d know I strive daily to stay strong.
    You’d know that I’ve made a decision not to treat my body wrong.
    If you really knew me you’d know each day I’m in a better place.
    And that my desire to improve moves at a slow, but steady pace.

    If you really knew me, you’d know I’m in a determined state of mind.
    And I made the decision to leave the unhealthier version of myself behind.
    If you really knew me, you’d know I’ve ditched all the negativity,
    Now I keep my mind full of motivational thoughts of positivity.
