I am now a 71 year old, obese, wife, mother, and grandmother, sister & aunt from Pennsylvania. I have been eating smarter. Had lost a significant amount of weight. Then gained about 80 lbs. back, from the end of 2016 to 2018. Slowly turned it around in 2019, down about 25 -30 lbs. So, in 2020 I am committing to get back to healthier eating, moving more, and living healthier! I need motivation to exercise, make myself go out. I am striving to sleep 5 hours most nights, eat cleaner, smarter, and dump the negative mental messages. I need to avoid junk..both in my food choices and life! Avoiding Stress and anxiety is a battle. But, I CAN ~ I WILL ~ and I WON'T QUIT!

My Program:
Think Eat..no more mindless eating!
But DO NOT Think about what people say, think, and do when they look at me.
Move some everyday!

Lights out by 11 p.m., shut off the thought train, and SLEEP!

    Hi, Theresa. Thanks so much for my lunch treat today! I just finished working on my peaches for the freezer and decided to take a little break. Now it's back to the kitchen for getting the sweet corm ready for the freezer. Every year I say I'm not going to do it, but it is always so nice to enjoy during the winter months. Have a great day. You're a great friend and I appreciated your giving and caring nature! Jeannie

    Thank you so much Theresa for my Swim Fins. I am going to need them tomorrow when I go for Aquatic Therapy. My evaluation went very well this afternoon and I have been approved for 10 visits. At which point they do a re-evaluation and they feel very optimistic that I will be approved for more visits.

    Thank you again for your support!

    Love,
    Paula
