I'm 73. another years has gone by, so now I am 74,and I have decided that I am not going to focus on losing weight as much as I am going to improve my eating habits. I have asthma and am on oxygen at night and can't walk long distances, I have had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder and now have a frozen shoulder, so that shoulders makes it difficult to do a lot of kind of exercises, so I do what I can, and if I lose a couple pounds that is a bonus, not a requirement.

I am a farmers wife and engaged in as much of the farm as I can, and understand. We do have some livestock, sheep, 8 miniatures horses, and goats and right now we share the chores, me in the morning and hubby in the evening, but once field works start the chores are all my baby, and I do enjoy them.

I really don't have any big expectations, cause I am not one that likes setting goals. I just want to be as healthy as I can and enjoy life, and it doesn't mean spending hours and hours walking, running, working out in a smelly germ infested gym, I work hard on the farm and that has been the way it has been for many centuries, in my family, so I think it is good enough for me.
Honest work, and knowing I should not eat as much as I do, but it is all natural food, that means I don't eat boxed or store canned food unless it is unavoidable. If you read labels, some dogs and cats eat better than some do. If I can't pronounce it, I don't eat it.
So that said I have no goals, just honest living, and no beating myself up if I have a piece of pie.

    Linda you always make me laugh. I shut down my factory too, after Brandon & Colin were born. When I found out I was having twins (at about 8 months) I figured God was mad at me and would give me 2 more girls because yes, girls are a whole lot more challenging than boys. But instead he blessed me with the two best boys ever! But I knew that was it - I could not take any chance!

    Yes, it DOES take work to keep it simple!

    I am like you, depending on who wins the HOH, which I do hope it is Tyler, I think the winner will be Tyler or KayCee. She has been a beast in this game. She was smart to get rid of Angela. I don't see JC getting through the endurance test that is sure to be in the final challenges. His height limitations alone will work against him. He is cute though but I don't like the game he played. He hid behind Tyler the 1st half of the game, thinking that he was controlling the game. I hope Tyler wins myself.
