Hi, I'm Nancy. Married with 2 kids and 2 more that I share with my husband and his ex - all grown now. We're both retired and still trying to figure out what we want to do with the rest of our lives! I've battled (or not) my weight most of my adult life; lived at 240 for many years, then yo-yo'ed for the last several. When I hit 61, I realized that I wouldn't live to a healthy, active 100 unless I made some changes but it's still a struggle to stay motivated. That's why I'm here!

Thanks for stopping by my blog with such great encouraging words. I'm glad it resonated with you, sorry for your mirror image of my indiscretion, but glad you can move on, too! I'm doing better today, even despite a ridiculous situation where a phone store guy basically lied through his teeth and I signed up for something that has turned out to be $40 more per month than he said. I'm furious, but not eating my way through it. Hey, maybe we CAN learn!

Thanks for being on this journey with me!

Thanks for popping by my blog with such nice comments! I was poking around your Sparkpage, and love all the sealife pics, but the pic I have to ask about most is the giant cat pic! What kind of cat is that?! It's amazing!!

Again, thanks for stopping by!
