I am now a 71 year old, obese, wife, mother, and grandmother, sister & aunt from Pennsylvania. I have been eating smarter. Had lost a significant amount of weight. Then gained about 80 lbs. back, from the end of 2016 to 2018. Slowly turned it around in 2019, down about 25 -30 lbs. So, in 2020 I am committing to get back to healthier eating, moving more, and living healthier! I need motivation to exercise, make myself go out. I am striving to sleep 5 hours most nights, eat cleaner, smarter, and dump the negative mental messages. I need to avoid junk..both in my food choices and life! Avoiding Stress and anxiety is a battle. But, I CAN ~ I WILL ~ and I WON'T QUIT!

My Goals:
To eat smarter.
Break the dessert habit.
be able to walk easier, and for a longer distance.
To be comfortable exercising.
Or, comfortable going OUT .
And every day move more, smile, and learn something, be able to count at least one blessing to be thankful for, and to sleep at least 5 hrs. a night.



My Program:
Think Eat..no more mindless eating!
But DO NOT Think about what people say, think, and do when they look at me.
Move some everyday!
Stay Motivated!
Keep Blood Glucose low and level.
Lights out by 11 p.m., shut off the thought train, and SLEEP!

    Yum, thanks Theresa for the box of chocolates. How I wish I could sink my teeth into them. Oh well, I guess I will just have to fill up on the 6 different kinds of berries we brought from the farm stands today. I got strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, loganberries, boysonberries and marianberries. Another 2 1/2 flats to eat or freeze. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, today DH and I drove him to the recruitment ctr. He will be briefed, and whatever else is on the dockets for today. Tomorrow he is inducted. Basic training is going to probably be in Nov. So, in the meantime he is going to have to keep busy with a J-O-B. His basics will be in S. Carolina. That's for 9 weeks, 4 days. After that, depending on his specialty he'll either remain in S. Carolina (in which case he WON'T come home after basics graduation) OR Georgia (then he'd get 5 days home then to GA). So that's all we know at this time, except that sometime after the 2nd round of training he'd be deployed (more than likely to Afghanistan). THAT terrifies the snot out of me, but it's not under my control. So, trying to be as supportive as I can for DS, because in my heart I think the discipline will do him a world of good.

    Thanks you for the goodie! I needed that.

    Hugs!
