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.

    Thanks JAMER, It is not easy to sit around in our house. We have our youngest son family living with us. One grandchild is home virtual schooled she is 13 and loves to learn. Our son and DIL work and we look after their 2 dogs. A Beagle and a Chihuahua.
    All of his little happy house. They live in the basement rooms and we are on the first floor. House is a ranch in New England.
    DH has poor vision and he is a fabulous guy. 53 years married to me, so LUCKY ME!
    We have no relatives and most of our few friends have migrated to the South. DH is always warm but I am always cold.
    In UK people say opposites attract and we attract big time.

    I love to move, cooking, house cleaning I like to do. Yard work and anything to move.
    I am so tired of sitting, but standing hurts and alas my Dr is away.
    I am happy and hurting and when I sit at the computer I chat with anyone and you have been a real Spark friend. Thank you for being so supportive at a time when I cannot move very easily. DH has been driving around and I have a camera full of fall Photos of trees in Maine.
    I keep trying to download to the computer, some day It might happen.

    Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet, love someone, dance in those muddy puddles,
    tell someone off, draw a picture with crayons like you're still 6 years old and then give it to someone who is very important to you. Take a nap, go on vacation, do a
    cartwheel, make your own recipe, dance like no one sees you,
    paint each nail a different color, take a bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.

    Get on that table and dance, pick strawberries, take a jog, plant a garden,
    make an ugly shirt and wear it all day, learn a new language, write a song,
    date someone you wouldn't usually go for, make a scrap book, go on a picnic,
    relax in the sun, make your own home video, kiss the un-kissed,
    hug the un-hugged, love the unloved, and live your life to the fullest.
    So at the end of the day, you'll have no regrets, no sorrows, & no disappointments
