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 64 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (47 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlins
(another one on the way!).
I have a beautiful second home/
I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

ANOTHER NEW update- after maintaining 168 for SO long,
my weight crept up 1-2 lbs a month since I developed hip bursitis and I am now (June 2011)
hovering around 180.

9/1/2013 ....still 181...
Will I give up?
AGAIN...12/2014 ...182-4 most days

    I do give the doctor what for, TRUST ME..I AM VERY VOCAL, and I have Pete but some doctors are brilliant with the botox and hit just the right spot others are not so good.
    Unfortunately he is the ONLY doctor local to us who's qualified to do them now- one left for Australia ( he was fantastic) and the other moved on to another hospital in Essex!

    I shall survive have no fears, Pete always comes in and backs me up too.
    Just figuring that it was "one of those things" last time around. Will MAKE SURE he hits the right places on Monday.
    Thanks for being so supportive.

    Thanks for the marital support! It is important in marriage to always consider the other. I live around man haters. It's always great to talk to another happily married person!!! ♡

    I will keep you posted!
    I have not read all of the book but I know CrayRay as Jillette calls him is very much pro water fasts so I think that is down the road from potato land lol but yes- we are splitting up the meat and potatoes diet. You eat the steak and I will eat the potato.
    BUT- it is about just picking one food so I could have just picked tuna I guess too. Bread no- unless maybe if it were pita with just flour and water. It has to be only one food.
    ~We will most like be meeting up when I am doing fasting- I might check in with you about that and eventually I guess I will be back dining with Captain Fregetable emoticon crunch crunch crunch!
