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.

I am mother of 3 sons, step mother of 1 son, mother in law to 3 wonderful women, grandmother to 5, soon to be ...

ouch! so much for whole foods' prepared dishes! the main dish i had was packaged from a seattle restaurant with the nutrition declaration stated, so that wasn't so bad. but the rest - thought-provoking indeed!

THANK you for your comment on today's blog! Nell, it's true, "Great minds DO think alike"! I have been thinking the same thing...I think I shall go through Beck time and time again always keeping it FRESH in my mind! I don't have enough years left to be maintaining nearly as long as you but it's still, "better LATE than Never!" You are the MATRIARCH of the maintainers on Spark!

I saw your comment on Swede_su's blog today and wanted to thank you. I don't know "full" really, either, my "eyes were always bigger than my belly" as the saying goes. I used to eat salad to the point of "stuffed" and then "snack" on cucumbers every waking minute to keep ANY hint of "hunger" away. I didn't have any idea of hungry OR full. But with Beck I now know what hunger feels like, thankfully. Made me feel better seeing your comment.
