This blog is about changing your lifestyle. That applies
to weight and any other type change you might like to work on in your life. This is a place to post and incourage. As I have said many times to lose weight you have to eat less and exercise more. Good foods of course help with the weight losing porcess but you still have to allow the goodies once in awhile. It is a great way to reward yourself for a week of eating the good foods.
There are many weight loss programs out there but the desire to lose the weight must take place in your brain first. Ya really got to want it!!!!
The folks that have given up smoking need to be mentioned here too. Once again the true desire to suceed has to be part of the process. Ya got to want to stop! You are giving you and your family a wonderful gift.
As many of us are getting older weight bearing excercises should be part of our daily exercise routine. We will talk about the best way to accomplish this.

Credit goes to Pottery!! (check main blog Dec.27 evening)
Pottery explained about the value of planting trees. I've been a tree planter - but not with this purpose.
"It has been shown, that each individual needs to plant 80 trees in their lifetime, to counter their personal footprint".
Sounds great Surfmom, get planting :)
