To the END

Over the last few years I've vacillated between being "obese" and "over weight", never making it to "normal". After I lose a good amount of weight - 30 lbs. or so - I find something in me resisting; and I get obsessive about food --- eating, eating, eating until I've gained most (or all) of the weight back.
As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I ...

As I round the clubhouse turn toward my 60's, it is time to get to a normal weight NOW and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The body parts are starting to creak and rebel for what I have and am putting them through.
I do well when I have a tangible, desirable goal, e.g., taking a trip that requires a lot of walking for which I want to get in shape. Unfortunately, after the trip, I start to slide again. I definitely need to change my goal/reward strategies.

I found this poem on Poetry Soup.com


The last rose of summer is rapidly fading on the vine.

'Twas once as brilliant as a splendid claret Bordeaux wine.

Alas, autumn frosts hath wrought their deadly sting.

Thankfully, another will bring me pleasure come next spring!

I have never been to Scotland. My Dad went though. He worked for Lockheed on the "top secret planes" back in the 50's. They sent him to Germany for 1 1/2 yrs. He was able to see all of Europe while there. What a shame we couldn't go. He sent me a doll from Scotland. I was so excited. Glad you had the chance to go.

Watching the Border Collies must have been fun. High energy dogs, but so gentle and loving. I would have wanted a pup too lol...Have a good Wed.. emoticon

emoticon so much for your comment on my blog "A lovely day hiking in Normandy" and for the research you did on these soldiers... they were so young! I hope their wifes were able to see where they died... so many broken lives...
