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.

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.

ideal jean size
Whatever size fits me, they vary so much depending on the brand and the style. I need some new ones that aren't baggy and falling off. The size 6 (us) jean shorts I bought in July but those are too big now.
