After years of giving in to almost all of my sugar cravings, I'm eating Sugar free. I woke up one day and decided that Sugar was killing me! About the same time, I read that Gluten can be the cause of a rash. For about 10 years I have had a chronic rash that 4 or 5 Dermatologist have been unable or unwilling to diagnose. I decided to eat Gluten free and see if the rash would go away. I started this on October 28, 2015. It's too early to know if it is working, but I am feeling better, not craving sweets and not missing breads and other baked goodies. I have lost 5 pounds, so far and hope to lose much more in the near future. I know I can to it with God's help and your support!

My Goals:
Eat small portions, walk, exercise and reach my ideal weight by Christmas 2016!

My Program:
I am trying to eliminate simple Sugars and Gluten from my diet.

Personal Information:
I am a Christian lady married to my childhood sweetheart, who is a retired United Methodist Pastor. We are enjoying some of the things we couldn't while we were working. We are still 'newly weds' but before this marriage, we both had long and happy first marriages until we both lost our spouses in 2004. We are thankful to God for bringing us together. We look forward to each day and try to give God praise and thanks for all the many ways He has blessed us.

Other Information:
I worked as a secretary/bookkeeper from the time I was in high school until I retired. Now, I wonder how I managed to work 8 hours a day for all those years and do all the housework at home, too!

    emoticon Dorothy--you remind me of me--falling AGAIN--is on my page too. I felt like I would NEVER get on the downward swing and keep going. I hope and pray that this time is the charmer--I just started down and am trying to lose a tiny bit, but hoping for a lot more, every week.

    Join me in our efforts.
    SEASONED SENIORS is just the positive effect that I needed

    Hope it helps you too. emoticon
    Come on the team daily and see how it can help you--people of similar age, goals, emoticon interests, IT'S GREAT. emoticon emoticon
