I should follow this advise:

"Never make someone a priority in your life
who makes you an option in theirs"

That means I need to make MYSELF a priority in my life, not just an optional part of my life. IF I want to be as healthy as I can be.

Found this quote on a friend's blog:
"Failure to exercise, frequent snacking and poor dietary choices are the common reasons for weight loss failure after gastric sleeve. "
note: remove the last three (3) words from the quote and it says it all.

My Goals:
To accept God's love, to let myself believe God truly does love me unconditionally. To make my learning a new better-for-me life-style a top priority in every moment of my life. Rather than a sometimes affair.

My Program:
I am in the process of learning "NEW" Healthy habits with the goal of their becoming my "Normal" Living habits. It may take the rest of my life to get my body to its natural weight. I prefer slow loss to my new forever weight rather than quick and having the battle of the bulge go on forever.

Personal Information:
I just LOVE old movies (40's and 50's especially) "Random Harvest" "Mr. Chips" "Pride and Prejudice" "Singin in the Rain" AND how about the music!! BIg Band (Glenn Miller, the Dorseys) the singers: Frankie Laine, Perry Como, Billy Eckstine

Other Information:
I am an American with ancestors from other countries and ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War (and other wars since). I live in the Northeast in one of the New England states, New Hampshire. I live in an old body (with a young soul), am retired, a widow, & have 3 middle-aged children(?).
on 3/15/15 I started to update this.. the update disappeared. thus I took that as a sign I should leave well enough alone.

    You are such a sound place for advice! I'd like to share all the ways that they have shot down some of your suggestions, but alas, that would only confirm your 40 year suspicion! A one way ticket, now that would be nice... Hope all is well!

    I understand how you feel. I see so many pictures, and I wonder where they were taken. Some people never mention that. When I first started posting my pictures in Flicker, I didn't mention where the pics were taken. Now I do, because sometimes people want to know. Me...I always want to know. We're both greedy hehe.

    Dear Audra, Thank you so much for asking about my parents! I realize you had asked me a little while ago and I most probably forgot to answer as I was caught in other things. Sorry!
    They are OK mostly. My mother's Alzheimer's is progressing, little by little, but she is well taken care of and we are very glad for that! My father visits her every single day, spending most of the afternoon and dinner with her until she goes to bed. It is a relief that at his age (83) he is well enough to drive the 15 minutes or so on a very busy road to visit her.
    Thank you again dear friend!
    How are you doing? I hope you are enjoying the warmer days. Here it has been mostly cold and wet so far, it doesn't feel like June! :)
