Another Dimension

Hello, my name is Maya and I have lost 30 lbs since 2009. I am learning a lot about what foods my body wants and doesn't want. The more I learn, the stronger I am and the better I feel, as I apply the nutritional and other knowledge to my life and eating habits. I am continually seeking new knowledge and trying new things. One new piece of knowledge seems to lead to another. I hope someday to be at peace with eating and my weight and feel healthy and well.

Thanks for insights about your experience on retirement. Similarly, I hope to "hit the ground running", but can easily see how it may take a bit longer to make the transition. So, I guess my take away is to listen to my body and not have potentially unrealistic expectations of jumping in and immediately accomplishing all my retirement goals. :)

I just noticed you retired a couple months ago. Hopefully, retirement is going well. Mine will be next year March (2016). Although I know it is quite early in your retirement, let me know if anything "unexpected" that you hadn't thought about has popped up. Always like to learn from others experiences.

Hi and thank you for visiting my blog. No I am not retirement age yet. Thankfully my job is great but my dog passed on Dec. 21st and I regained all of the weight that I had lost last year back. I have been really depressed and grieving over the loss of Jazzi.

My blood pressure had increased because of the weight gain but also the stress/grief of losing my dog. I didn't think that I would take it so hard... I knew it would hurt, but I think what made it worse is the fact that she died in my arms suddenly. She was 15 years old and I knew that it was just a matter of time, but it was so sudden and I have never seen anyone or anything die before... I can't get her taking her last breath out of my head, and she was in pain and seized for about 15 seconds... my vet said that she probably had a heart attack.

... anyway, I saw my doctor on March 2nd and she prescribed me a puppy ... I am ready and looking but I am taking my time... hopefully I will get another dog before the end of the summer.

I do know about on the job stress but thankfully that's not the case on top of trying to deal with losing my sweet fur baby.

Well, time to get back to work. Enjoy your day.
