A multitude of health issues and general lack of motivation have led me to be at my heaviest weight yet. Now that I have surgery coming up in June, I am finding the motivation I need to make important changes to my life. I'm making conscious efforts at eating better and have recently been rediscovering my love of being an outdoorsy gal. With hiking and camping coming back into my life, I'm finding the motivation I need to make big changes.

    It is great to have you as a new member at
    "Cooking With Small Appliances"

    I took early retirement, an empty nester with a wee dog.
    I started "Cooking with Small Appliances" for couples and singles to use small appliances more efficiently, saving time,energy, in the kitchen and start making more healthy food choices and to stop the fast foods of dial up or take away fast foods services.

    You can do it, I know you can!

    I wish you much success with your present and future goals!
