This is my January 2015 update. after about two years on this journey to be healthy I'm 60 pounds lighter and in better shape. I still have a long ways to go on the fitness and it will be a lifetime to keep that fitness and weight. I used have chronic pain and what a difference!!

This journey has changed my life in so many positive ways. It's not just a weight loss journey but one to face all your demons and in the end be a more positive person feeling good about yourself and your world.

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've been busy exploring vegetarian dishes from many parts of the world, I've discovered some new favorites and ingredients that are new to me.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company, a mentally exhausting desk job. Not a dream job but it pays the bills and has terrific benefits.

I am currently single 65 yo with 9 grandchildren, 1 great granddaughter, and another grandson due in June. 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.

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. It's part of my journey to feel good about my life. I'm a professional longarm quilt artist but my little business (used to be fulltime) is on hold while I concentrate on my remodel. Hoping to get back to my passion my the end of the year.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot and a little girl boston terrier mix born 3-31-13. She's a very active character-wish I had her almost never ending energy.

why am i not hungry?!
Since you are not overweight start doing cardio and strength training. It will tone and firm your body, not overnight it will take time.

Recipe ingredients listing as servings
I put the actual amounts in the directions area and use the raw food amounts whenever possible as most of those have measurements instead of servings. You can always enter your own custom ingredient but it is time consuming.

My former Health & Fitness mistakes. Here, you can gain from my pain (ahem, so to speak)
Terrific comments!!!!! As I'm being a bit lazy on this foggy Sunday morning, I will be moving shortly and get my workout in.

Vegetarian
Make your own veggie burgers. They aren't hard. You can freeze them with wax paper between and pop them apart. Much less $$$ and you can control what goes into them.

If you could buy one workout machine- what?
My WII sits there unless the grandkids are there. I even have the balance board etc. and it's rearely used. There are lots of activities avail used for pretty cheap for it.

I love my WOSS attack straps, my body likes it. The flab is disappearing and my strength and endurance are more rapidly increasing compared to anything else I've tried.
