I have joined the Spring 5% Challenge which is 8 weeks of inspiration towards the weight loss journey. It is a Race to Fascinating Places - Join a supportive team and let's have fun as we lose 5% of our weight, make new friends and improve our health! It starts January 9th.
Look up the team by it's name which is.... 2021 5% Summer Challenge or cut and paste this

I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place.

I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi.

I have 3 daughters, as of Feb 2018 they all live on this side of the Puget Sound too. I have 6 grandchildren, ages 26, 22,10 and 8, 5, and a 2 year old. Only the oldest is a boy, all the rest are girls!

My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren again. We are the ones that moved away for 15 years. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, RENTALS moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Nine months to the day of the fire.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing to our goal weight and then keeping our weight off!!

    Not going to family just yet. Not until the last week of May.
    I was busy with errands that needed doing, back and forth and here and there because things are so hard to find now.

    Thanks for the kind comments on my picture. It was taken Pre Covid, my last vaca and before 15 pounders piled on. lol. I forget you came here from Arizona. I was with an ex Mr. Wonderful a few years ago. and he had a house in Yuma i spent time in. I loved Yuma. It was winter, the weather was great and I loved walking over the border to Algodonnes a few times a week. Then summer hit. lol ouch. Out came the heat and the snakes. It wasnt for me I left Yuma and the guy too. lol lol This spring challenge is really showing a lot of team effort and the fun!!

    Oh wish I felt like I did at least during some of my 60's!! LOL...but, my grandma used to say if wishes were fishes we'd all have a fry! I guess that meant we eat the fishes and forget about wishes! Haha. It's so much easier to be active and do something fitness related when the weather is good. I've been busy working in the yard and planting flowers we got at the nursery/greenhouse on Friday. A few perennials and some annuals to fill in the blank spots. How about you? What are you up to? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
