I'm 75. another years has gone by, so now I am 75,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.

    Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, mulberries, blueberries, whatever, I'll take them. Blackberry pie, now my mouth is watering. Imagine Merlin or Duke picking berries. Baron was easily 150 lbs. Uh yes, I remember vividly when a flock of returning robins chose to settle near my clothesline back in the day. That was a wasted washload.

    I could use an energy splurge. If you have any left, send it my way.

    Linda, I never heard that Acupuncture could be illegal. Heck everyone does it here, even dogs get Acupuncture! I am serious, they do!!!! Unfortunately that won't help me. I have no padding between vertebrae, none whatsoever. So I have bone rubbing against bone. Sticking needles in different parts of my body will not cure my pain. It's a bummer.
