HAPPINESS IS AN INSIDE JOB!

I reached GOAL on April Fools' Day, 2016. Of course, lol. The Beck Diet Solution is what finally rid me of the last ten pounds!

I'll bet no one ever told you - I think you're eating too many veggies. OR - I think you need a little more sugar in your diet!
I avoid sugar as much as possible and I fill my meals with as many non-starchy veggies as I can. Sugar and starch are not my friends. Avoid sugar and starch and eat all the plants you can!

It's good to be drug free! No meds other than supplements!

I'm Karen and I'm retired, healthy, happy, and want to be thinner!

I lost about 20 lbs before I found SparkPeople. Now I'm reaching for a LOWER goal than before, (Dr. approved) but feel confident I can do it! The M-WORD - MODERATION- is the most important AND most difficult goal for me to attain. In fact, Moderation is a Four Letter Word, lol, in my book anyway.

Of the time I invest in trying to get/stay healthy, 25% is spent trying to lose another pound and 75% is spent managing chronic pain. So don't expect my weight loss ticker to break any speed records!

DISCLAIMER FOR MY ARTWORK: Some of us are born with talent. The rest of us learn technique.
Caution! Rank amateur at work. No talent here, just technique and luck!! And a lot of FUN!

The biggest motivation for me seems to be sharing with others of like mind, along the sometimes rocky, hilly road to a healthier lifestyle.

Others inspire me, amaze me, tickle me, engage me emotionally and just remind me that besides the DIET RACE, I'm in the HUMAN RACE.

My Goals:
I'm aiming for a fit and healthy body, free from chronic pain.

My Program:
I'v come to realize I simply have to eat LESS. I also try to move more in any way I can. Old injuries keep me from doing much consistent exercise, but water activities save the day.

Personal Information:
I'm a native Texan living in Central Texas. I retired a little early, at age 58. I wake up each day expecting HAPPINESS. It's a great thing to look forward to.

Other Information:
My interests include oil and watercolor painting.

I've decided that my main "work" after retirement is keeping my body healthy and banishing pain and debility that tries to creep up on me.

Thanks for message, Karen. All is fine. I'm just kind of blah and into bad eating habits (mixed with my good ones, of course...up and down). I'm about to do something that may be crazy and may not last. I'll post on group site. Enjoy your swim!

They are very cute. My hubby is crazy about chinchillas. He is like you and your beau and has had tons of animals, including orphaned wild ones he raised and released but he likes chinchillas the best. They are really smart for a rodent and live a lot longer than many rodents.
