I am 49 years old, in good health. I started struggling with weight when I was in 9th grade. As a young woman, my weight went up and down for years. I finally found my zone when I became a young wife. After two children, my weight always settled at the same place it was before the babies, 133lbs.

I am 49 years old, in good health. I started struggling with weight when I was in 9th grade. As a young woman, my weight went up and down for years. I finally found my zone when I became a young wife. After two children, my weight always settled at the same place it was before the babies, 133lbs. Over the past 20 years, things have remained very consistent with only the 'winter 7' playing a part. Typically, by the time the roads were clear enough to walk a decent clip, I was out and about, and my winter 7 was history.
Now that I am a 'woman of a certain age', things don't work quite the way they used to. Things are moving a little slower and fitness is a little harder.
In the last year, I finalized my divorce (after 23 years of marriage), my boys (21 and 19) have left the nest, and I lost my daddy (my hero). I am trying to learn how to take care of myself, now that I don't have my dad and the boys to fuss over.
I adopted a 4 year old golden retriever. Little did I know that he was the one who did the rescuing! I have a very strong faith, amazing family and friends that humble me each and every day. What I don't have is any idea as to where my waistline went! Hormones!!
I am a knitter, baker, reader, New York Mets fan, newly converted dog lover.
I am here because I want to learn how to take care of myself. I want to be able to lose my winter 7 before summer (lol!) and I want to be the best woman I can be!
I look forward to meeting people here. I love the candor with which people share their struggles. I want my glass to remain, not only half full, but just about brimming!
God Bless!

Thank you for the teapot!

A cup of tea was a perfect end to the day ... especially after too much sugar!

Now I'll think of you whenever I have tea, as well as whenever I'm making a conscious effort to not eat in front of a screen!

Thank you for the lovely goodie. You are such a sweetheart.
I really appreciate it.

Hope things are going well in your world.

Hugs Wispy.

PS. I get 7lb shifts some times. I know it sounds impossible for me it would seem anything is possible. The first time it happened I nearly blew a gasket, then I discovered it seems to happen for no reason at all, and thankfully seems to go away again in a few days.
