I strive every single day to live a healthy life!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).

I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

Thank you so much! It is so motivating to read about other people's good experiences with Dukan and other low-carb diets. I also eat up compliments about my little girl, so thanks for that too! Hope to become a regular Sparker again and start following other people's blogs again, so off to check out yours!

Thank you so much for your lovely post on my blog.

I too am working on it, and things are much improved.

I can actually smile at myself and say I love you now.

I could not bring myself to doing that for soooooooooo long.
It seemed odd and made me kind of angry to think of doing it.
Sort of like conceited or something, as if loving me was a sin.

Good golly. Since I started, it has become a daily.

Hugs Wispy

Good advise Elizabeth - thanks. I have only been taking one tablet 2 hours after a meal (why on an empty stomach?)
