What? Yes, I am starting over AGAIN. And I will keep starting over again till I learn my lesson. Going up and down, up and down - it just doesn't make sense. Why eat crap? I love eating good food! Highly nutritious food, whole, natural food. I loved the feeling that my clothes were getting loose. I loved the feeling that I was developing a waist. I loved getting into a size 16. So what happened? Did I sabotage myself because I was afraid to succeed? Was all that over indulging worth it? I THINK NOT!
Holy cow, I am so glad I finally caught my head!

My Goals:
My goal is more than just getting healthy, although that would be a good start considering my mom died of CVD at an early age (67). I want to be the kind of person I have always admired. I want to learn to really truely BE.

My Program:
I am using a modified version of the Dr. Atkins approach. It seems to work best for me and I enjoy eating fresh healthy food. I don't 'eat all the meat you want'. I balance it with good fresh veggies, etc.

Personal Information:
My name is Nancy. I am from the lovely but ravaged state of Louisiana. I love it here but wish I could have a second home on a tropical island somewhere. I am 55 years old.

Other Information:
I have 4 grandchildren who are the loves of my life. In fact, when I got my first one, I fell so head over heels in love, it is like I never loved before. And I know that I did because there was so much love in my life to begin with! My love has grown with each baby that has come along. It is a good thing. A welcome thing. Everything.
I love gardening, koi ponds, aquariums, dogs, cats and my husband. Sometimes in that order. Just joking. I am creative to a fault, meaning I sometimes pay more attention to 'stuff' than I should. Some energy would be better spent on the relationships in my life. I am working on that. And I desperately want to write a book, although I have had no formal training and apparently it isn't important enough for me to get that training. Go figure. Laziness?
I am currantly trying to start a business called My Nana's Pocket. Hopefully, if I get it going, it will be online. I seem to have an aversion to meeting the public. It is wierd b

    Hi Nancy!

    Just finishing a show in Detroit area and checked my mail to find your sweet comments on my SparkPage. Thanks for checkin' out my page and giving me such supportive, warm feedback!

    How did you happen to make it to my page? Have you checked out the *Thich Nhat Hanh and Others* page? I notice that ZestyLady also posted on your SparkPage...she's a newbie on TNH, which is what leads me to believe that might be where you *saw* me...?

    Good luck with My Nanna's Pocket!

    Blessings all around,

    I love Saturdays too! They go way too fast. We had kids and grandkids for brunch yesterday. It was fun. I like your writing style and look forward to reading more about your life and how you got where you are today.

    Nancy! It's wonderful!
    All the time I have been reading your short posts on the other board, I never had a sense of who you were. I see this as the real advantage to the blogging. The chat format seems so one-dimensional...just my thinking. I am so glad you are here and look forward to reading about your journey. Already we have much in common... a love of dogs, grandkids, burned journals, ponds, Louisiana. I grew up with a pond, but can't do one here...yard's just not big enough and we freeze a bit...always had a hard time with herons and coons eating fish...free lunch, cheap and easy.
