New Year Committment FINALLY

I have finally quit thinking about it and have made up my mind to join Weight Watchers and go to the meeting at Cottage Grove on Tuesdays at five PM in the evening. It is a good meeting and only fifteen minutes away so it will be nice for me. I won't like the evening meeting as I will be getting out in the dark for awhile, but it is okay and will be nice for the Spring and Summer and is only dark for a few months in the Winter. So I have also decided to go back to TOPS which meets on Wednesdays and I really enjoy the women of that club, it is out in Thurston, but really worth the drive, as they are all such fun people. This club has a big group of KOPS which are the girls that have kept off the pounds sensibly. I truly always learn a lot and get to laugh a lot with them. However I do need the discipline of the WW. So I will try to attend both. It only costs a quarter a meeting for tops so it is really worth it to me. There are other costs if you want to take part in those and sometimes I will and others I won't  I will also be walking in the water each day down at the club   It is the best exercise for me as it is the easiest on my joints.  I am sad tonight, as it has been Tanner's baptism and we are not able to be there with all of you. I know it was wonderful and I wished we had lots of money so we could just jet over for all of these special things. We missed Rebecca'a sealing and we will miss Gracie's baptism also :-( don't get old as it makes things harder to do and is a pain. I wish I had the body of my young years when I ran around the block if I felt like it and danced with grandpa all night if wanted to. I do miss those things sometimes. But alas if I were young again I wouldn't have all of you, so I think I should be content with what I have and be grateful for all of my blessings which I truly am. I am so thankful for all of my wonderful grandchildren and great ones, you are all such a blessing to me. I love you all so much.  WISH ME LUCK AND PRAY FOR ME.  HUGS AND KISSES

Sounds great! I bet you will just feel so much better when you are doing those programs consistently. I have not been eating very well the past few days and I can feel it! I was thinking- it is time to get some good stuff back in this body so it can feel good again! I'm sorry you can't visit people as much as you wish...I feel the same way :( It's not fun being so far. But you are right- we need to look on the bright side and be grateful for what we do have! Like blogs! :) Love you!!!!!!!

We love you Nellie!!! So sorry you have missed such fun family get-togethers. I am not too excited to grow old either, but I am so very thankful for all of the wonderful people who are a part of my life as I have gotten older!

I am glad you have decided to do something that will help you and make you happy! If you see any of my old friends in Thurston, say Hi to them for me :-)

I love you and miss you tons! Hugs and kisses, and give them to Uncle Ed too :-) Smooch!

congrats on your decision to go back to WW and Tops. You always do well when you put your mind to it. I think you will love tracking on the computer and on your phone. I can't wait to share my favorite ways to use my phone. Plus there are so many recipes and good stuff on their site. Take it a step at a time and you will love it. They say that people that do e-tools and go to their meetings lose 50% more than those that just got to there meetings. Lots of power in those e-tools! love you!!!
