What? Yes, I am starting over AGAIN. And I will keep starting over again till I learn my lesson. Going up and down, up and down - it just doesn't make sense. Why eat crap? I love eating good food! Highly nutritious food, whole, natural food. I loved the feeling that my clothes were getting loose. I loved the feeling that I was developing a waist. I loved getting into a size 16. So what happened? Did I sabotage myself because I was afraid to succeed? Was all that over indulging worth it? I THINK NOT!
Holy cow, I am so glad I finally caught my head!

My Goals:
My goal is more than just getting healthy, although that would be a good start considering my mom died of CVD at an early age (67). I want to be the kind of person I have always admired. I want to learn to really truely BE.

My Program:
I am using a modified version of the Dr. Atkins approach. It seems to work best for me and I enjoy eating fresh healthy food. I don't 'eat all the meat you want'. I balance it with good fresh veggies, etc.

Personal Information:
My name is Nancy. I am from the lovely but ravaged state of Louisiana. I love it here but wish I could have a second home on a tropical island somewhere. I am 55 years old.

Other Information:
I have 4 grandchildren who are the loves of my life. In fact, when I got my first one, I fell so head over heels in love, it is like I never loved before. And I know that I did because there was so much love in my life to begin with! My love has grown with each baby that has come along. It is a good thing. A welcome thing. Everything.
I love gardening, koi ponds, aquariums, dogs, cats and my husband. Sometimes in that order. Just joking. I am creative to a fault, meaning I sometimes pay more attention to 'stuff' than I should. Some energy would be better spent on the relationships in my life. I am working on that. And I desperately want to write a book, although I have had no formal training and apparently it isn't important enough for me to get that training. Go figure. Laziness?
I am currantly trying to start a business called My Nana's Pocket. Hopefully, if I get it going, it will be online. I seem to have an aversion to meeting the public. It is wierd b

    Good to see and hear from you, too....it has been a while. Darn. Don't you wish we'd stuck to it years ago when we first started this plan??? But better late than never, right. We CAN do it. Stay in touch, please, my dear friend. Always appreciate your kind words.

    A new grandbaby? Whoo HOo!

    And just to (a-hem) clarify....it is not FEET, it is my %$## left FOOT! It has an amazing healing capacity, though. Swelling is down. Colors are magnificant, and other than my baby toe that looks like a shiney red ball, I am in pretty decent shape.

    But, i AM going to stay more conscious!
