My goal.. "To choose the better option every time!"

I do like "QUOTES"

"Never make someone a priority in your life who makes you an option in theirs"

"Failure to exercise, frequent snacking and poor dietary choices are the common reasons for weight loss failure after gastric sleeve. " - remove the last three (3) words

"It is easier to do a Job Right than to explain why you didn't.”- Martin Van Buren

2021-05-02 - just looked all this info over.. and decided I did not need to add or change what has been written. Now to live for at least 2-1/2 more years.. need to live to be older than my brother when he died. We all have goals. that is one of mine.

previously known as OverActiveElbow name changed 12/28/2016
My over active elbow consistently conveyed too much food, too often, to my mouth. (still working to over come that disability!?!)

Member Since: 11/28/2011

My Goals:
To accept God's love, to let myself believe God truly does love me unconditionally. To make my learning a new better-for-me life-style a top priority in every moment of my life. Rather than a sometimes affair.

My Program:
I am in the process of learning "NEW" Healthy habits with the goal of their becoming my "Normal" Living habits. It may take the rest of my life to get my body to its healthiest weight. I prefer slow loss to my new forever weight as I grow the habits to support my healthier weight..

Personal Information:
I just LOVE old movies (40's and 50's especially) "Random Harvest" "Mr. Chips" "Pride and Prejudice" "Singin in the Rain" AND how about the music!! BIg Band (Glenn Miller, the Dorseys) the singers: Frankie Laine, Perry Como, Billy Eckstine

Other Information:
I am an American with ancestors from other countries and ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War (and other wars since). I live in the Northeast in one of the New England states, New Hampshire. I live in an old body (with a young soul), am retired, a widow, & have 3 middle-aged children(?).
on 3/15/15 I started to update this.. the update disappeared. thus I took that as a sign I should leave well enough alone.
12/30/2016 I have two living (50+ yo) children. my daughter died November 9, 2015 sudden death by brain aneurysm. family will probably never truly recover from the loss... and I think of Todd Fisher losing his sister and mother on the 27th & 28th of this month. he does still have 2 half-sisters, so not quite all alone.

    My Birthday was the 27 (yesterday). I went out for the day with 4 friends and had a nice relaxing day and picnic in the sunshine.

    Have a good day

    I know what you mean, Audra. Covid has made us think differently about many things we took for granted before. I used to help serve at church dinners... now, IF we have dinners again, I would be reluctant to volunteer.

    I had an email from a friend in Oregon, and she says they are close to going into full lockdown again.

    Be safe,

    The picture with Alice in our hills is what our Spring normally looks like. Just not this year. Fingers crossed for next Spring!

    This is the basic recipe I followed

    Sweet potato and black been burrito

    Sweet Potato
    Black Beans (dry or canned, I use dry)
    Pickled onions (I made my own, you can buy already made)
    Chili Powder
    Fresh garlic
    La Banderita wrap
    Cheese (I used Cotija)
    Cilantro (optional)

    Cut the sweet potato into bite sized pieces, brush with evoo and sprinkle with Himalayan sea salt, chili powder, garlic powder and cumin (425 approx. 45 minutes turning every 10-15 minutes)
    Cook the black beans and some minced garlic until soft (if dry, or you can used cans)
    Mash the potatoes when they are done and combine with the sweet potatoes
    La Banderita carb smart wrap (regular or whole wheat)
    Put the amount of mixture you want in the wrap, top with pickled onions, close the wrap
    Serve with avocado, more pickled onions and fresh salsa, and a dash of Cotija cheese (or any cheese of your choosing) and a sprinkle of cilantro.
