Some days I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 68 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (FIFTY ONE YEARS!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have three little darlings.

I just sold my beautiful second home on the sweet island of Anguilla and moved from a little condo back to a three bedroom house (up-sized!)

I LOVE to exercise and meditate.
I also love to eat and drink!
Time to get rid of these extra 50 pounds that have crept up on me in the last 20 -30 years of living the good life.

    Thanks Elizabeth for your comment on my page. This has been such an awful week for me. And then to see your words of encouragement has motivated me to not give up yet. Sometimes it is the little things in life, a smile, a kind word or just a you go girl that makes the difference in the life of someone else.

    Keep your spirit of gratitude and I know you will reach your goal in no time. I placed a blog on my page entitled moving on. If you get a chance please read it and comment.

    emoticon It has been a long, slow, uphill battle for me- I don't lose fast. But slow and steady wins the race- I hope!

    You always leave such great comments on my page and encourage me on. To me, the hardest part of this weight loss journey is not being able to socialize as frequently with great friends and have a few cocktails. I know what challenges you are facing my friend. emoticon

    I have been slow today, felt a cold coming on. I didn't go to the gym but ended do 30 minutes on the treadmill at home. I did not want to lose the momentum. I feel like a turtle at times, slow but steady. I have been going back and forth with one pound. I think I finally shock it off my big fat behind.
