I'm a nurse. I know better. How could you do this to yourself? I hear it all the time. It's all true. I was busy with family, and aging parents, and my patients at work. I forgot to take care of ME ! I wasn't paying attention to ME. My turn starts right now! In 17 months I will be 60 and I would like to weigh in at 160. 90 pounds in 17 months...it's doable!
August 2014: It was a doable goal, but I didn't do it! I've been saying forever I'm going to, but never get going. Something's got to change...me!
March 24, 2016: I haven't really done anything but talk. All talk, no action = no results! Today I joined Spring 5% challenge. I am a Tiger Monarch. I will shortly be changing some of my Sparkpage to more accurately reflect where I am currently at and where I want to end up.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Fitting in with Mother Nature or NOT”
    The power company does have regulations to protect the lake but only right on the shoreline.
    There was a LOT of local opposition even to that.
    There are warnings about the dangers of clearcutting, erosion, poisonous runoff and resulting damage but some do not care. Their freedom to do as they wish is more important than the well being of our shared environment.
