Busy life--wouldn't have it any other way!! You can tell by y site name I like whole foods. I love to cook all kinds of natural foods and delve into many cuisines. I'm a leftover health food nut from the 70's who has always loved exploring cusines from all over the globe. There are all sorts of interesting foods to try. I also have 20+ years of restaurant background. I also make beer and wine.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company. I'm also a professional long-arm quilter and quilt quilts for people. A side part of that is selling the longarm machines doings some teaching, and sell a few supplies. Quilting is a passion. Learning to make wire wrapped jewlery.

I am currently single with 9 grandchildren. I spend alot of time at grandkids sports events and in the summer attending mud runs as one daughter and her husband race and fishing for catfish with another son-in-law and grandaughter--we leave my daughter in bed as she hates mornings. I'm slowly remodeling my house and most of the year work on my yard and gardens one of these days I'll get both so I'm happy with them. I always seem to be tearing something apart.

By losing weight and getting back into shape I hope to be able to keep up with my life without getting so tired and be able to do more of the things I like to do. Hoping that once I lose the wt doc tells me I need to I will feel better about myself and get involved in a new relationship.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot, an 8yr old pom mix male dog who thinks he's a big dog, and a little girl boston terrier mix puppy born 3-31-13 She's a very active character.-wish I had her almost never ending energy. My goal is to train her for agility competition should be fun. Also playing with making homemade wholesome dog treats.

I can see a few being a good snack or used in cooking if you are doing low carb.

The person who used to ride with me would pick up a big bag of them if we stopped @ aldis, someone doing low carb told her they were a good snack for diets and you could eat an unlimited amount. She would eat the entire bag on the way home and leave it in my car, close to 900 calories in about 15 minutes: she was not on a low carb or any diet.

Personally the fat makes me sick, why I cannot handle Atkins or low carb. I cannot even choke down one but I can't eat even one potato chip either or even much meat.

I don't do low carb but from what I have read on here Atkins even has a calorie limit now, they didn't a long time when I tried it. No matter what lots of calories little nutrition.

Also they add lots of calories with little nutrition.

Kettle bells!
I've tried them. I need lighter ones, starting @15# is too much for me. Even the trainer said they were too heavy, she had been asking for lighter ones.
