I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in March. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I wished, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 1.5 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the next 2-3 weeks pending my mom's health after her fall last March, breaking an arm and leg. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.

After a very long plateau, I have made my 1st long term goal of 100# lost on 3/20/16. 1# added to the loss this week. The plateau is broken and now onto a small goal of 17# (no date to meet).

I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    ~~~ emoticon ~~~Two Questions~~~ emoticon ~~~
    ~~~~Question 1
    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already,
    three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded,
    and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?
    ~~Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.
    ~~~~Question 2:
    It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
    Here are the facts about the three candidates.
    ~Candidate A:
    Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists.
    He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 Martinis a day.
    ~Candidate B:
    He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college,
    and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.
    Candidate C:
    He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke,
    drinks an occasional beer and never committed adultery.

    Which of these candidates would be your choice?
    Decide first... No peeking, then scroll down for the response.

    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevet
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
    Candidate C is Adolf Hitler. And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:
    If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.
    Pretty interesting isn't it?

    I don't want to brag or make anybody jealous,
    but... I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    How else can success be measured if we have not failed before. How can you talk about sadness or love if your soul hasn’t at least once been drenched w/it? Martha Gouws

    Thank you for the massage! I scheduled one for next Wed. for 90 minutes to see if she can work her magic on my achy, inflamed feet. It's hard to get 10,000 steps in if each one is a major "ouch".

    Have a great day and may sunshine brighten your day. emoticon
