This Is Not a Diet - This Is Your Life!

I am a child welfare professional who recently changed jobs and moved near the coast because I love the beach! I have been involved in medieval reenactment in the past and lead singer in two bands! I am in the process of finding a new band in New Bern, NC, where I have moved. I am the mother of three - two sons by birth and a daughter that I had the honor of adopting from foster care when she was a teenager.

I am a child welfare professional who recently changed jobs and moved near the coast because I love the beach! I have been involved in medieval reenactment in the past and lead singer in two bands! I am in the process of finding a new band in New Bern, NC, where I have moved. I am the mother of three - two sons by birth and a daughter that I had the honor of adopting from foster care when she was a teenager. They are all adults now and my daughter has made me a grandmother - my precious Grandson is Levi. I have been divorced since 2003 and finally have met the guy who I believe is the love of my life. I have been battling compulsive overeating and being overweight all of my life. I had gastric bypass surgery in 2001, but gained back most of the weight I lost. I have tried OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN to develop healthy habits and keep them. I don't know why but I always went back to my old habits of eating and isolating. I want to lose weight, but I don't focus on numbers. I just want to live a healthy lifestyle and I will "let the hips fall where they may!"

Thanks for the blog comment. I do need to get back to making good decisions 90% of the time. I spent my first couple of years here doing just that. Instead of trying to be perfect, which is impossible, I would strive to be very good, which is doable. But I've been slacking and I know it. Cutting corners, finding shortcuts, etc. which isn't always bad, but it can be if you do it too much.

Part of my problem is my belief in the Pareto principle: that 80% of success comes from 20% of effort. It always rings true (within a few percentage points) but you have to put your effort into that 20% or it doesn't work. Obviously I haven't been doing that!

Snooker is kind of like pool but a much bigger table and points per coloured ball. It's probably a little difficult to get into but it's one of the sports I try and follow so this is the big one (world championship) so kinda slacking at all the other things I need to do!

Thanks for the blog comment. I know that getting enough protein is important, it just doesn't seem to happen unless I plan it out and make sure it happens! I have a good supply of protein foods right now so hopefully I can have another good week!

Thanks for the blog comment. I'd love to find happiness, trouble is, I probably wouldn't recognize it anymore!
