Let's Do It!!!

I'm a yo-yo dieter who finally got down to her goal weight at WW and stayed there for over 4 years now. WooHoo! I can stay under my WW goal weight but to take that next step to lose 10 more seems to elude me. No, I can't say that. I'm not tracking all the time so that may be when I eat more! I feel I'm exercising more but am I eating more then? Unfortunately when losing weight, my calorie range is pretty low to begin with. Even with doing exercise, I have to keep the calories pretty ...
I'm a yo-yo dieter who finally got down to her goal weight at WW and stayed there for over 4 years now. WooHoo!

I feel I'm exercising more but am I eating more then? Unfortunately when losing weight, my calorie range is pretty low to begin with. Even with doing exercise, I have to keep the calories pretty low. Anyway to my mindset it's pretty low. I also have a huge stomach and would really like to get it down. I've never had a flat stomach but this is way too much. It's bad health-wise too! I think some of it is trying to lose weight being post-menopausal Is less sugar and less carbs the answer? Well, enough said, now it's time to do something!

HI Hon !! WELCOME BACK HOME !! WOOHOOO !!! how did the animals react?? GO TOTALLY NUTS ??? UNLESS perhaps if you have a CAT !! LOL I've had 5 diff ones over the time,,, and 2 of them would give me ATTITUDE when I got back !! One even PEED ON MY BED !!! She leanred that's NOT what to do,, for Momma was NOT happy with her, but yet,, she was probably the MOST SPOILED out of the 5 !! She used to ride on my shoulder,,, hardly ever walked. Awwww she was a great gal. She was born without her bones formed,,,, and needed help with physical therapy,, which I did when she was a kitten. I helped her to learn how to walk. Prob why she was sooo special and she slept in the crook of my arm,,,, the others ,, normally sleep around my legs/feet,,, which is where Izzah (Izzy,, Isabella) sleeps now,,, or she MAY come up and curl up near my face,,, but not for to long. So I hope ur animals were very excited to see ya !!

Also how was vaca? Was it ALL you wished for???? I HOPE SO !!

I still have on my 3rd cast,,, it's been a LONG 6 weeks !! I FINALLY get it off a week from Thurs (or Fri?) than I can FINALLY start to walk again on that foot ! WOOHOOOO ! With crutches,, and nO DOUBT a TON of restrictions,, as I have been under,, since June. I wanna PLAY and SWIM !! WOOHOOO !!

In Sept when the community pool reopens,,,, I WILl be READY I HOPE so SWIM there ,, for now,, it'll be at a friends pool,,, or in the ocean,, which is MIGHTY COLD !! Also have been invited to a BBQ at the lake,, once I can do the travel,, which even on a very good day,, is very hard on me. I wanna new body ! WoOHOOOo !!

LOL Hon !! ENJOY the kids being UP so late,, and HAVING SUCH FUN !! In many yrs from now,, you will WISH this was happening again,, when the house is silent til the grands come over later in the day !!

But !! Even Grands grow up !! And mine have,,, it was MY place they ALL hung out ,, during their teens,,,,, yrs,, even late teen yrs,,, I even was in the process of learning the elect guitar to play it with them. It was a BALL !! We'd have 2 amps with eect guitars going,, 2 without amps,, and 1 or 2 acoustics ones playing, and as many us who knew the "current" song,, would be singing to it,, sometimes with mics. I lived in a high rise next to where I do now,,,, ALL of my neigbhors on the 6th floor LOVED IT,, and Only the POOPY head under me,, "said I can hear it !" and she said "I HATE IT" !! Well she's of the same congregation I am from,, and she HATES ANYTHING she's NOT invited to,, and if we invited her up,, ALL she wanted to talk about was PAIN she was in (or THOUGHT she was in,,, you know,, how some NEED to be NEEDY,, she's #1 in MANY books ! When in fact she has it quite easy compared to most others !) and of course NO Teens wants to hear that !! She's an older person,, I'd from time to time go down to her place,, and she'd OFTEN show up at 1 to 2 AM,,,, for me "Fix me cereal" (rice cereal) EASY to do, but than she'd stay to 3 or 4 AM !! So if you ever end up in a high rise,,,, or where they are a mixture of people living together,,, watch OUT for the whiners,, ur kids are just helping to get used to this ! LOL !! Kids are ADORABLE, and NO DOUBT you still LOVED watching them. They grow up WAY TO FAST !!! It just seems as if yesterday S,, was dressing up in princess dresses. Aww yeah. ENJOY these precious moments.

As you do get older,, if you also end up as I have,, alone,,, plz note I and t's NOT EVER "ALL ALONE" for you can than get to explore diff area's of ur life,, you once couldn't,, and U get to be the one who's OUT LATE !! Or do as I have,,, learned swimming again,, take up a new sport (Yoga) and ALWAYS keep friends, fam around,, for them to DROP IN OFTEN !! They will .

HUGS kiddo !! GOTTA love those tiny feet !! I am awaiting for my GR Grands to now come along (hopefully since my GD is only 19 it'll be a bit ! She's married),,,,,, and yeah,, I'll LOVE that just as much as always. I MAY even if my friends struggle to live on their own in about 30 yrs,,,, move up that way where they are now. I am in my mid 50s,,, I have,, we have PLENTY of time.

HAPPINESS is urs,, just in playing with the kids,, this weeks challenge ougtta be EASY For ya !
