Getting on Track

I love all living things: people, animals, and plants. I am an amateur herbalist, and love to cook with and use herbs for all sorts of things.

My weight gain has happened gradually, and I'm not starving myself to take it off. Exercise is key with me. As the grandmother of seven, I find that weight no longer bounces off like it once did. I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health ...

I actually wonder if I really should be the soft pillow my own grandmother was that made her hugs wonderful! Then I think about the health challenges that presents, and I get "real."

I have several circles of friends: my church family, always the first friends wherever we move, my friends at the Bernina store where I used to work, my chorus friends (the source of the gold medal), my herb club and gardening friends, and the walking club that started me walking some 15 years ago. I talk about Spark People to all of them.

I wish I could keep the fitness minutes going.... any exertion just leaves me breathless and/or dizzy this week. Frustrating!

We have a great team leaders and group of folks on the Trim Healthy Mama team and we're all here for you.

I just started the very end of Jan. 2015. I bought the THM Plan book Feb. 10th and just got the Cookbook Mar. 10th. But I have started losing weight and inches. In 1 month I lost 5.25 inches and 5 lbs. and I'm a slow loser. Most folks lose faster than me.

I know you must love the Trim Healthy Mama Plan and team as much I do!!! I'm adding you as a friend.

Thank you for the comments. I am presently struggling with snacking (too much!!).
I notice you are a quilter. I am presently looking at sewing machines (any advice on brand?). I plan to try a quilt this summer. emoticon
