My goal.. "To choose the better option every time!"

I do like "QUOTES"

"Never make someone a priority in your life who makes you an option in theirs"

"Failure to exercise, frequent snacking and poor dietary choices are the common reasons for weight loss failure after gastric sleeve. " - remove the last three (3) words

"It is easier to do a Job Right than to explain why you didn't.”- Martin Van Buren

previously known as OverActiveElbow name changed 12/28/2016
My over active elbow consistently conveyed too much food, too often, to my mouth. (still working to over come that disability!?!)

Member Since: 11/28/2011

My Goals:
To accept God's love, to let myself believe God truly does love me unconditionally. To make my learning a new better-for-me life-style a top priority in every moment of my life. Rather than a sometimes affair.

My Program:
I am in the process of learning "NEW" Healthy habits with the goal of their becoming my "Normal" Living habits. It may take the rest of my life to get my body to its healthiest weight. I prefer slow loss to my new forever weight as I grow the habits to support my healthier weight..

Personal Information:
I just LOVE old movies (40's and 50's especially) "Random Harvest" "Mr. Chips" "Pride and Prejudice" "Singin in the Rain" AND how about the music!! BIg Band (Glenn Miller, the Dorseys) the singers: Frankie Laine, Perry Como, Billy Eckstine

Other Information:
I am an American with ancestors from other countries and ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War (and other wars since). I live in the Northeast in one of the New England states, New Hampshire. I live in an old body (with a young soul), am retired, a widow, & have 3 middle-aged children(?).
on 3/15/15 I started to update this.. the update disappeared. thus I took that as a sign I should leave well enough alone.
12/30/2016 I have two living (50+ yo) children. my daughter died November 9, 2015 sudden death by brain aneurysm. family will probably never truly recover from the loss... and I think of Todd Fisher losing his sister and mother on the 27th & 28th of this month. he does still have 2 half-sisters, so not quite all alone.

    Only 13% of Canadians have had their first shot as of this week. Supplies are still limited and so far it's only people over 60 in some areas who are eligible; 65 or even 70 in other areas. In Ontario ICU beds are full in most places; if it gets worse, plans are in place not to give an ICU bed to anyone who isn't expected to live more than 1 year.

    At the same time, some people who are eligible are choosing not to make an appointment for their first shot, and clinic spaces are going empty.

    Scary times; it's 2 weeks since Peter had dose 1, so has about 60% immunity; I will be the same in another week. Second shots not scheduled until July for both of us because of shortage of vaccines.

    I love the idea of taking pictures of things, and have suggested it to Peter. So far he hasn't tried it... maybe in time.

    I like the way you handled the ring. I've started talking to all the kids about things from our home that are important to them, and making lists of who should get what. It's definitely harder since the sentimental things that came with me from Nova Scotia should go to my 3, and there are lots of sentimental things from Peter's family that Siobhan gets first choice of. I've also told the kids that once they have culled things, we would like the books to go to the library for their book sales, and most other things should go to the Salvation Army or hospital thrift shop... or have a great big yard sale and split the proceeds 4 ways.

    If I outlive Peter, I definitely plan to move to a smaller place... a condo here in town if I'm still healthy... and will be able to do a lot of the cleaning, sorting and tossing myself.

    Thanks for your friendship, Audra. I always look forward to your posts and comments.

    Hugs, Gail
