There is one place that is my favourite in the whole world....
I don't have to go far to get there,
It requires no reservations,
And has no travel restrictions.

In this place,
I feel totally free to just be myself.
I can laugh and be silly
or sigh or cry...
without fear of being judged.

I know that I am accepted and appreciated
JUST as I am.
It's a place where I am convinced--
I was born to be!

My favoutite place?
IS wherever YOU are!!

My Goals:
At the moment...my goal is to be able to say to myself! .... " WOW! I have lost 100 whopping LBS!!"

My Program:
Follow my 1200 calories per day healthy eating plan 6 days per week. Then treat myself on the 7th day!
MOVE every day!

Personal Information:
From a small city of about 6500 people in northern New Brunswick Canada
Winter is my favourite season ( good job because we get a long season of it...lol )
I met my husband online 20 years ago. We have been married for 15 years.It is a second marriage for both of us. He is my best friend and supporter!
He is from Scotland....I moved over there and worked there for 7 years until my husband retired....then we moved back here 11 years ago.
We have 4 children and 4 grandchildren between us. We LOVE camping!

Other Information:
Back in 2010/ 2011...in a year and a half....I lost 90 pounds.
Then I stopped smoking in October 2011.....and over the next 6 years....try as I may....I started putting all that lost weight back on!
Finally....( 6 years and 80 pounds back on ) I got my act together in October 2017 and have now lost 62 pounds (as of Jan 5/ 2019)
I never went back to smoking! And I still miss it! ( LOL )
Looking forward this new year of 2019 to getting to my goal of 150 pounds. ....which is about another 25 pounds to lose!....I love my healthy lifestyle and never feel hungry or deprived or craving.

    After being a team leader in the BLC for a couple of years, I understand how tough it can be getting team members to understand challenges. Of course, I also remember how confused I was when I started BLC challenges, LOL.

    I like our RV challenge and wish we were doing a longer one. It’s nice to share and learn from everyone. emoticon

    Guess it was my page that was screwing things up. Don't have the inch of what it was but I did see others posts off too. Wonder if that again is something that was on my page. Strange!!
    Have a great night. I am off to bed and going to relax!

    It really is strange. It's been going on for the 3rd day now and I really don't want to post anything on the chat threads or any of the threads but all the other things are fine that I have written. I should maybe post on the message board if it keeps happening!
