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.

    When I was younger....
    I'd put my arms in my shirt and told people I lost my arms...
    Would restart the video game whenever I knew I was going to lose...
    Slept with all the stuffed animals as a child so none of them got offended...
    Had that one pen with 4 colors, and tried to push all the buttons at once..
    Poured soda into the cap and acting like I were taking shots.
    The hardest decision was choosing which Nintendo game to play.
    Waited behind a door to scare someone, then leaving
    because they're taking too long to come out or you had to pee.
    Faked being asleep, so I could be carried to bed.
    Used to think that the moon followed my car.
    Watching two drops of rain roll down window and pretending it was a race.
    Went on the computer just to use Paint.
    The only 'fake' friends I had were invisible ones.
    I used to sing in the shower. (Now..?? I make life's decisions in there)
    Swallowed an apple seed, and I was scared to death
    that an apple was going to grow in my tummy.
    Getting a bruised knee heals better than a broken heart.
    Remember when we were kids and couldn't wait to grow up...
