Koshie tries again

I'm a highly educated, 50+, retired lady whose main "fun" right now is leading an aerobics class twice a week. I'm not a tech-head, but I'm active, involved, and always searching for more friends. I'm even better in person, as I'm pretty laid-back and accepting!

I've learned how to reach a weight loss goal -- I reached my goal weight by Low Carbing, a la Atkins. But I got severe lack of support at a time of great stress, did the stupid thing and regained the weight, and now ...
I'm a highly educated, 50+, retired lady whose main "fun" right now is leading an aerobics class twice a week. I'm not a tech-head, but I'm active, involved, and always searching for more friends. I'm even better in person, as I'm pretty laid-back and accepting!

I've learned how to reach a weight loss goal -- I reached my goal weight by Low Carbing, a la Atkins. But I got severe lack of support at a time of great stress, did the stupid thing and regained the weight, and now am starting all over. (Update: now halfway there.) I'm smart, but I have learned you are always stronger when you have help. I KNOW I can do this; but I'd love to have a buddy.

My goal is to lose weight and keep it off for ME -- to look good, feel good, and be healthier for the rest of my life. I'm finally OVER (that was SO last decade!) the struggle to stay YOUNG and pushing myself far too hard. Now, I'm more relaxed -- I enjoy gardening, oil painting, stained-glass making, dancing, reading, and cuddling with my dear friend Ginger (that green thing on my shoulder), in addition to my more vigorous pursuits of snow-skiing, step-aerobics, shooting hoops, and hula-hooping. Hey, ya gotta keep it fun!

(can I brag? just a little? on 12-12-15, my page was the daily featured SparkPeople Motivator. and honestly, that just made me bust my Feel-Good Gut! THANK YOU!)

I'm sorry I wasn't able to give you the information you were expecting. If you've followed Maria for 4 years you know her better than I do. I started a year ago. :o)

Table sugar is *sucrose*. And sucrose is composed of fructose and glucose.

I totally agree. My ex and I parted ways. I took his african gray and he took my nape because I couldn't take both and the gray hated him!! She/he would attack him so he didn't want her. The nape chose me when I was looking for a parrot. I had hair down to my waist and he just wrapped his whole head in it! He loved preening it! The bf taught him to sing one day while I was working (I can't carry a tune in a hand basket!) He sang super sweet for about a day...then he became a southern sounding, off key singer. LOL It was soo cool!! I miss him with all my heart and think of him all the time! They are a pet for life!
