I am gearing up for the big weight loss.  I really have to focus.  I think this time I am going to try counting my calories and watching my cholesterol.  South Beach and Atkins work well with me but both really make me feel  a little under the weather. I am going to try to create low fat low calorie recipes that I can post here.

I really love to cook and to create in the kitchen.  I joined a recipe club online.


I find it fun.  If I am energetic enough I may post here and there. For now I am off to bed for a nap before work tonight.

Happy New Year World!

So, here it is New Year's Day 2012.. I have no resolutions for the New Year unless you want to count my daily resolution to get healthy and stay healthy.  I decided to start this Blog for myself, really, so I can go back and see  the ups and downs of my life.  I hope to add little things that might be of interest to others, recipes, quotes, my rather middle of the road political commentaries, my family photos (of interest only to out of state family) and I hope to document my rather long, slow, weight loss.  If there is one thing that I have learned, it's that everyone must change their own life on their own terms.  People use many different techniques to quite smoking, the patch, cold turkey, hypnosis.  The goal is not how you do it, It merely is to do it.  I have taken on that attitude towards my weight loss.  I decided last year that I would loose 20-25 lbs a year and keep it off until the next year, where I will do the same.  I did accomplish last years goal of 20 lbs.  I am on to this years goal of 20 lbs.  By the time I am 60 I will be a healthy weight.  And hopefully I will stay there until...well..until I am no more. So Happy New Year Let the year bring health, wealth and happiness to us all.
