My Goals:
I have pretty much reached my goals of losing weight (90 pounds) and getting off my DM meds so now I have to keep working hard to stay that way. Feeling as good as I do, I now wonder why I didn't do this years ago. But then I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people here on SP.

My Program:
I try to be consistent with my diet and exercise to maintain my weight and keep my BSs under a tight control.

Personal Information:
I live outside Philadelphia PA near the Delaware state line (tax free shopping!) I work as a legal nurse consultant and in my spare time I like to read, crochet, walk and love spending time with my husband, children and friends. I have three grown children, Ashley 28 married and a dentist, Hayley 24 in grad school for an MFA and Alex 21 who lives with hubby and me and works is an autobody repairer. We have two rescue dogs, Indy and Menlo.

Other Information:
My favorite poem is "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. My philosophy of life is the Golden Rule (Treat others as you would wish to be treated) and I try everyday to live by it. I love life and am very happy!!

I bet it was totally worth the parking trouble and commute to have that year of memories. Or at least I always imagined it would be.

We live kind of in-between. Lots of parking, but no open spaces or outdoors areas to enjoy. Unless you find concrete scenic. lol

HOpe you're having a great afternoon!

You are right that getting fit and healthy should be my number one priority! Thank you so much for the sweet compliment. And it's true, it is harder to lose the weight as one gets older. Pain in the butt.

I'm so glad you're getting to the gym tomorrow! Woo hoo!

South Street still had a lot of fun shops when we were there. They were all closed, and we had to stand in line for the concert anyway, but they were cool. Sucks that they've been getting taken over by brand stores. That's boring.

I'm so jealous you got to live in Philly. Sounds like so much fun! When I was younger I wanted to live downtown SO BAD. Now I'm like... ugh, people. But I wish I could have done it when I was younger.

Hope you're having a great Monday!

Hi Pat,

Life continues to e crazy here. How about you? Closing the pool tomorrow then another doc appointment for dad on Wednesday. Thankfully, they've been able to help with the headaches but are still working on the dizziness. The next step is to check into knee replacement. We really need to get together one of these days.

Feels like fall is here and not sure I'm ready. Seems like I finally got my mulch down and now it's time to start cleaning the flower beds.

Have a great week.

hugs...Mary Anne

That's it! Sometimes we have to save them from themselves, and definitely, they get irritated by that! I think it's in the genes (YIKES!)

HUGS
