Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

Nell, we actually prefer my home cooking over almost any restaurant meal, too. If DH is bothered by GC making money off me, then maybe he won't want to go there more than once in a blue moon. Heck, I've already decided that if I can't find food I am willing to track at family get-togethers, then I plan on eating when I get home (I usually have an apple late afternoon anyway, so I won't be starving.)

THANKS FOR COMMENTING ON MY BLOG. I THINK SMALLER PLATES ARE A GOOD IDDEA.

Nell, DH has his own idea of nutrition. Because his metabolism was so fast through his 40s, he takes childish delight in his pie and candy. One of his three children developed a food addiction, confusing "full" with "eating until he feels sick". I wonder how his son picked up that habit...

Fortunately I am immune to the presence of his calorie bombs. I'm having fun imagining how different foods boost my health, so if I can't see a health benefit, a food loses attraction to me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, "Updated SparkPage."

Thank you for visiting my blog. I love the way you describe maintenance and the encouragement of telling me it's my opinion of maintenance that matters most for me. I'm developing the confidence on Spark to believe that. emoticon

Hahaha, I laughed at your sugar and oil binge. Gotta do that myself. I used to oil and sugar scrub before showers all the time.

Thanks for commenting on my "can't to can" blog. Amazes me how reading other blogs can inspire a rant that will in turn inspire other people. We are all connected here. I love it! Justyna
