I have joined the Fall 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 October 3rd

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, 4, 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!!

    OH I can't believe this, but we are going to do a pay for the unlimited washes thing. I LOVE washing a car, but in Jan, Feb and early March on ice isn't smart as it once was when I had sure feet. :)

    This AM is a DRAGGING like an old man going to a funeral!! Why do they call them "FUN"eral? There's NOTHING fun about it, unless it's someone who wasn't liked that you HAVE to go to (usually family for ours though only my step monsters (why Mom saw something in him, I have NO clue!) that one only a FEW people cried, most of us were holding back HIGH FIVES!! The ones who cried were HIS family. They COULD of been tears of RELIEF I am not sure.

    Have you read about the funerals where they say the TRUTH about such ones? LOLOL I'd of liked to of done that with his. But sign back then everyone was nice,,, well at least a little bit. However once those of us who saw him as he was ,,, got together there was so many HIGH FIVES, DANCING!! My Mom of course got the biggest limo she could. As we rode to the grave sight she leaned over and whispered in my ear (1 brother liked the fool)"I got the limo for you and I to CELEBRATE!" I KNEW I loved that lady!! That much more. We hid our grins.
