It is a New Year

Hi Steve, I trust you had a good Christmas, birthday, and new year. I did too. The years go faster and faster. I am dieting and working to lose 40 pounds. I’ve lost the 1st 10 and now have 30 to go. It is easy to gain weight and hard to lose it. That seems to be part of getting older. I’ve been making fruit and veggie smoothies with pea protein. It is a way to fill up and not be hungry and have less calories. It is based on the weight watchers system of losing weight. I seem to keep losing and gaining the same weight over and over. Losing weight is hard, keeping it off is even harder. I’m determined because I have a foot that hurts if I walk on it a lot, a back that hurts in the morning, and it is now getting harder to get off the couch. Yikes, I’ve got to do something about this before I end up in a wheelchair! I’m counting on the year going by fast while I’m dieting so that I can look back at the end of the year and be glad I did it. I’m swimming and taking an water aerobics for exercise. My foot hurts too much if I do much walking and running is out of the question. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. How are things with you? Love, Beth
