Last week I decided to go back to faithfully weighing, measuring and tracking my food. I also committed to trying for 10K steps 6 days a week. Tracking works for me. It helps me realize how much and how often I'm eating which is necessary because I've been an unmindful consumer of food for decades.

I tried an experiment of just making better choices etc. That did not work so I pulled out the food scales, loaded the app in my smartphone and I'm already seeing results.

Stay tuned...


Just 3 weeks ago I turned sixty! I can remember as a child thinking that was REALLY old. While my body definitely shows signs of wear and tear INSIDE I feel pretty much as I always have.

I've been very distracted this past year with house construction, moving, my mother's health decline and responsibilities outside the home. Now I'm going to make some time for myself. I've set a goal to lose 38 pounds this year.

Here's to a great 2016!

Pressing On!

    “Go for broke, my friends. Straighten your spine when you step to the podium. Trust your own tongue. Believe that your weary legs will hold you until you reach the finish line. And reach it you will if you give it your all. Fall if you must, crawl if you must, but don’t you dare give up or give in until you’ve made it to the end. For at the end is where your great reward will be to begin anew. A new chance. A new life. A new you.”
