My healthier ME journey

I am a 56 years old and live in the northern tip of NH. My goals have changed a lot lately. I recently fit into my first pair of size 14 jeans and I like what I am seeing. But I am also learning to like the person on the inside. She is someone that I want to get to know.

I also have goals that aren't weight, exercise or nutrition related with is totally new for me. I have discovered hiking and I love it.
My goals for this summer are:
1 Be able to walk a 5K again ...

HI BFF ,,, has ANYONE told you lately,, how much we ADORE and LOVE having you as a very dependable, kind, sweet EL/WL? Its TRUE !!

YOU GOOoooooo...... ..... .... . GIRL !!!

I pick my friends VERY CAREFULLY !! They have to not agree with my views, but at least Respect them,, and with my religion,, as very different as it is, to not ever put it down, but instead, if they can,,, and they draw so much closer to my heart,, as you have done,, encourage me to stay in it,, knowing it makes me very, very happy. TY for being such a support,, and asking a lot, if I went to meeting,, knowhing how much happiness I get.

When I was in Girl Scouts many eons ago (LOL about 47 yrs ago ! YO ! I learned a song "Make new friends,, but keep the old,, one is silver and the other Gold". Well you are CLEARLY better than GOLD, for you also have a TRUE HEART !!

TY for ALL you do for the team,,,, it's clearly INVALUABLE !! And while someone else "may" be able to do it,, it'd NOT be nearly as much FUN and INTERESTING as it is with YOU !!! U are a light in the dark !

HUGS HON !!! LOVE YA !
