So, the question for today is "How many times have you started a blog, only to have abandoned it and have to start over?"

Shortly after I got out of the hospital last year, I stopped blogging.   I' not sure why.  I just did.  I stopped dieting, I stopped working out, I stopped everything!   As hard as I tried, I just couldn't get that mojo back and get in gear.

I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out why that happened.   First of all, my biggest problem is stress.  I don't deal well with it at all.  I've gone through a separation, let my teenager live to see his 18th birthday! and trying to adjust to being on my own again......has taken its toll on me.   

However, that being said, I am a fighter.  Once I've bottomed out, I start to rise again.  So here we are 1 year later, quickly approaching my 60th birthday, gained all but one pound back, and now starting over.

So, I went online and joined Weight Watchers.  I'v lost 17 pounds (again).   I tried all year to get back on the 30 day diabetic cure, but couldn't make myself stick to it.   So my sister and I discussed WW and I decided to    give it a tr y.  I'm adjusting pretty good to it.  I've started exercising.   I bought Richard Simmon's "Sweatin to the Oldies".   Oh to be a fly on my wall.  You'd roll on the floor laughing!      
I can only do a few   of  the dances, but I am tryin
IN the past 2 weeks, I have made a skirt and a top. FUNNY STORY about the skirt.  I went to Joanns and picked a basic skirt pattern.
