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.

    I sent you a water bottle because YOU need to stay hydrated, too. I just wish water were a little more interesting. LOL

    Oh, wow! You are really having the heat for a northern state! It is so cool here tonight that I am wearing my sweatshirt! I would guess its in the low 60's...... I guess your house there has AC? No doubt you will have it on! Being as far north as we've been, we've escaped the heat that has hit across much of the country. I guess we picked the right year for Maine!

    I see what you mean about the time to head south! It would be good if you could see some of the states that you haven't seen yet. We have a lot of them, mostly in the west. I wanted to head west this year but got out voted! Oh, well, maybe at a later date!

    That is great, Eileen, that you are allowing those people who were driven out of the park's trailer by mice to rent yours! Also nice that it won't be on the road, but sitting right there where you can see it every day. I would say it is a good use of your idle RV! Doing those people a favor! They must be really looking forward to their summer now!

    When do you plan on coming south again? I would guess its a way off yet. We are now staying put here in upstate New York until the 29th, as we need the oil changed on the truck but the shop can't get it in until a week from Thursday. That is OK, as it is still really HOT at home....... emoticon

    “Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other,
    when we don't judge or categorize someone else,
    when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet.
    Charity is accepting someone's differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings;
    having patience with someone who has let us down;
    or resisting the impulse to become offended
    when someone doesn't handle something the way we might have hoped.
    Charity is refusing to take advantage of another's weakness
    and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us.
    Charity is expecting the best of each other."
    ~ Elder Martin J. Ashton ~
