My story like many is one of seesaw ,dieting..oh yeah..I have tried too many of them. Exercising till my body said NO more! then unable to do anything for days..silly me!
Took way too long to figure out that, healthy Real Food, portion control and reasonable exercise lead to the road to success.
Everyone has to find their own path, usually with multiple trials and errors along the way. Just remember to Never Give Up!!

    Our age and medical problems have caught up to us and we seem to only have one speed now - slow. LOL. We try hard but both of us have bad backs. We finally got everything cleaned and repaired and everything is back in place but the food. I tend to get distracted though and end up veering off task and end up cleaning something else but we could use more clean around here. LOL. No help here - no relatives. Friends all moved away. No income to pay people.Having a couple more rooms would be wonderful!! I would love a second bathroom. Just the 2 of us but we seem to be in the bathroom a lot. I take 2 baths a day. I have to do our taxes myself - could not find help. ugh. We are in for bad weather the next couple of days and I'm always fearful as my granny was in the worst tornado in history living in the worst hit town and her stories stayed with me. So I will pray for you and hope you will for me. . Maybe little Hermine will get a shower bath - love her.

    Thanks for the advice, Katie! My husband is already having stomach issues and we haven't even started yet! That's why I decided only 1 day a week to start. And since he's a hunter, we probably won't go completely vegan. Just a few days a week after we get used to it.

    We have got to cut down some of these trees by the house. It's always something when you own a home. And renting is worse. LOL. Have a great evening.

    I feel exactly like you do. I stay here for the friendships but the site doesn't seem to be working much any more. Saddens me.

    We don't have a Home Depot here but my son works at one. We do have a Lowes. I love about any garden center. There is a new one here I want to check out - Amish.

    Have a great evening!

    We were in bed when the tree fell about midnight. Windy and stormy. I will probably blog about it. LOL.
