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.

The Anti inflammatory diet
Interesting. I went out and looked at his diet plan, summarized online. My WOE pretty much matches what he is saying.

Over the past 1.5 years I have gone from limping constantly due to knee and ankle pain most mornings using a cane, living on nsaids and other pain meds, frequent migraines, facing the real threat of a knee replacement. With paying attention to my WOE and eliminating or severely restricting processed meats ( cured meats like ham,sausages, corned beef etc)also adding exercise. I am no longer living on pain meds, migraines are few, and I am not now facing a knee replacement. Lost 60 pounds along the was as well.

ideal jean size
Larenzia, you can do this. You have come a long way already. I was a size 16 a year ago, now a size 6 depending on the brand of course.

Maple Syrup plus Cayenne pepper in Green Tea
I personally don't get all that sugar. Understand the rest can sometimes be helpful. I love the flavor of ginger and hot peppers in foods, just happens that they are good for one as well. I do really like real maple syrup as well as a treat, but after every meal?

70% Diet and 30% Exercise is what I have always been told
Draglist, I still thank you everyday for referring me to that book. I need to buy my own copy, I keep checking it out of the library. I feel it's one I need to re-read when my motivation starts slipping. No idea on a percentage. My WOE is for getting to a healthy weight and maintaining it, exercise is for my body to be toned and strong and to improve my bone health especially with osteoporosis and arthritis. At 65 it's important.
