    Sept 10, 2018 ~ Loving WW Freestyle!

    As you can see from my title I’ve rejoined Weight Watchers for the 3rd (or 4th) time.  I can tell you this, Freestyle is the very best Weight Watcher program I’ve been on.  It’s easy to track with the smartphone App, easy to eat healthy, easy to get away from high sugar foods (more Smart Points), and most of all helps you change your lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle. I started my new Freestyle Journey on Friday, April 20, 2018.  It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time.  This past January a good friend of mine, Joan, came to visit me.  We hadn’t seen each other for years but it was like we just saw each other yesterday.  She got me motivated to start tracking my food.  I lost about 10 lbs from January 2018 to April 20th when I started WW Freestyle.  I was up to 262 lbs in January.  I started WW Freestyle at 252.8.  Today, September 10, 2018, I weigh 216.2 lbs with a total loss of 36.6 lbs on WW Freestyle. I have lowered my Omaprazole in half and am hoping to get off of it completely.  I’ve been on 40 mg since…

    Happy Anniversary & Al’s First Novel Published

    Hi everyone.  On June 10, 1976 Al and I were married in Vancouver, WA.  We celebrated 41 years on June 10, 2017.  It’s been a wonderful 41 years and we look forward to many more. We met it September 1974, the year I graduated. I am doing okay on getting back on track with my Program.  I was doing really good staying off the Diet Dr. Pepper but have slipped the past couple of days.  I will get back on track with that.  I still haven’t started walking yet but the grandkids and grocery shopping helps me get some exercise.  Hopefully our pool will be getting used when the hot weather comes to stay.  I’m not journaling yet but I am trying to eat smaller portions.  My sleep is still wacko; up long stretches, sometimes 24 hours or more.  I know that is not helping me stay on Program.   Last Friday we had a wonderful BBQ at LeRoy’s house.  We were sorry that Rachel had to work and couldn’t be there.  LeRoy has the backyard beautifully landscaped with so many flowers.  He put up a new swingset for the kids, along with a sandbox – their favorite!  We had loaded…

    September Already? I Love the Fall Season.

    Hope this post finds all of you having a great Labor Day weekend.  Al and I are staying in, not doing anything special.  Vancouver is having some great cool weather this week, which I love.  Fall is my favorite time of the year. LeRoy, Rachel and the kids made a surprise visit at the end of August.  It was a quick but fun visit.  This is the first time we’ve met our grandson, Jake.  Emily is now almost 5 years old and getting so “grown up”.  What a joy it was having special time with her.  She takes after me, very talkative and loves people.  Jake, who is 11 months now, reminds me so much of my LeRoy when he was little.  He’s very easy-going, loves to eat, and is so cuddly.  He loves to give a lot of kisses.  They both have birthdays in October, Jakes is October 2nd, and Emilys is October 7th (same as my brother Bob.  Mine is October 5th (going to be the big 60 this year).  It looks like we are racking up October birthdays! I’ve been keeping busy for the last month updating our restaurants to Smart Points.  I have 153 restaurants completed. …
