2015 update: Life certainly is a cha-cha-cha. Temporarily in Alabama to be available for mom, while older brother's work takes him out of State for the next year. Not how I planned this next year to be; it is what it is. I am using this time to get very serious about reducing my weight; enough of the plateau game! My goal is to be at goal by next June.... maybe sooner, if the winds are right and the river doesn't rise.
2014 update: This last year has brought some changes, but not with my weight. On the other hand, It has truly been nice to no longer be a full-time caregiver to my mom (wooHoo). I'm working on just trying to be healthy for me. It's two steps forward and one step back, just a chacha in the dance of life.
2013: I'm gramma to amazing, lively, and intelligent twin grandboys, born in 2003, and to one strong-willed grandgirl who was born in March, 2011. I want to be healthy so that I can be in their lives for a good, long time.
I am married, in my mid-60's, retired, with my primary residence in Oregon, USA. I am indeed fortunate to have the flexibility in my life to do the things I want to do. I prefer to think of the glass as half-full rather than half empty but that does not mean I am a pollyanna - far from that. I have struggled with my weight and depression for most of my life. It has only been in the last 5 years that I feel I have finally learned to come to happiness with myself.
I plan to live a good long time and I want to be totally in each and every moment of this life.

Go to your weigh-in page, on the right you click on "restart" Diet. Then you can choose to hide the history before the restart. I think that will remove the old stuff.

I find that if I nuke the pumpkin seeds a bit (say 15-20 seconds) that they soften up a bit and make eating them easier.

Dang, I have that same little voice in my head, telling me negative things. I wish there were a mute button for it. Nuff said!
I try to remember that, like fine wine, age has its own beauty and bouguet. I am trying to focus on the positive.... and just keep moving forward and onward!! Hang in there!
