My story like many is one of seesaw ,dieting..oh yeah..I have tried too many of them. Exercising till my body said NO more! then unable to do anything for days..silly me!
Took way too long to figure out that, healthy Real Food, portion control and reasonable exercise lead to the road to success.
Everyone has to find their own path, usually with multiple trials and errors along the way. Just remember to Never Give Up!!


I do solemnly pledge:
that I will do my best to eat healthy and within my calorie range,
that I will exercise to the best of my ability,
that I will watch my portions and avoid mindless eating,
that I will avoid or limit unhealthy foods,
that I will try to get enough sleep,
that I will stretch myself out of my comfort zone,
that I will always try to make healthy choices even when stressed,
that if I slip, I will get back on track with the very next opportunity,
that I will keep a CAN DO attitude, or ask for Help,
and that I will support my fellow pack mates

Because I am an UnderDawg
And every UnderDawg has the heart of a hero.

    I track a few nutrients in the Nutrition Tracker but when I added Potassium, I was shocked!

    It says that most people in the USA do not meet the requirements. When I looked up the symptoms, I slapped myself upside the head.

    After only a couple of days, my binges stopped and I'm feeling loads better. It only takes a minute to add potassium to your tracker.

    I'm a believer. I am living proof.

    OH Katie!!! I can't believe people are THAT STUPID to protest the Stay at Home order!! Do they even have a BRAIN???? Here an entire family has the C19. They are so very very sick.

    Maybe being able to toke has taken the CO brains hostage after all it's now 7 years of them being able to. Is Maine in for this also?

    Please stay safe.

    How cute - I was working outside today too! Only it hit 90 here today and we are not expecting snow.

    A friend came and helped me "rediscover" the apron in front of my carport. The carpet grass grows over it faster than I can clear it. Recently I saw someone edging with a weed-eater and I asked John to stop by and show me how to use the one I have. Mine is electric and he opted to use his gasoline one instead. We got about half the job done - worth a batch of cheesecake for him!

    He just started making his own Colloidal Silver (I'd still rather purchase mine) and he needed a tester so I asked Ej Heinrich about finding a tester for him and ordered it just now from Amazon. $16.38 and since he wouldn't take anything for helping me today, it's a nice way to pay him for his time, gas & string.

    Like Ej, he will make 10ppm but I use the 500ppm that Debby told me to buy. I've had good results with it and want to stay with it. It cured Ray's pneumonia in days after he was on multiple medicines for 2 months. I'm using the nasal spray now to help prevent the corona virus.

    Love you Katie-girl,
    linda & bubba

    P.S. my potassium is still too low, but I'm getting there and feeling a whole lot better!! I'm even sleeping better at night again.
    I think there's a female in heat and Bubba is dragging me all over the place! Darn dog is going to kill me yet, lol. I'm not ready to kick the bucket yet, I'm only 68.

    Sir sounded like my kind of guy. It must be quite a responsibility to find a suitable mate for your girls. I dread to think what I would have ended up with had my mother chosen a mate for me. LOL. I'm thinking black wavy Elvis hair, tight white polyester flare legged pants, white suede shoes, a gigantic horseshoe diamond ring. OMG. Maybe you really should have auditions for this job!!! LOL.
