5 years LoCarb

Hmmmm - 5 years?
Make adjustments - or start again?

Right before my weight-loss journey started

My lowest weight 

Up 10 pounds (of the purest muscle) after CrossFit 
And 10 more after that

Ahhh - the Grand Canyon!

And the little lodge I stayed at -
Burned down.....that was half the town of Marble Canyon, AZ!

And Ken, who I went to see in Temecula, CA,
Died suddenly. So it would be a lovely trip,
But not the same. (Still might go.)

And then there is me... 5 years later.
A new job...a new apartment...
New goals - new friends

Same body, though...
I have one that likes to eat sweets, though.
And I have a mind like think I need a "reward"....
A comfort, somehow - or convenience 

I tell myself that treats are for toddlers
Learning things on this planet....
Not so much for Middle-Aged Ladies (like me)
Who should be out doing "middle-aged" things - 

Such as hiking and camping

Even if I can't hike from coast to coast this year 
(No Vacation or Cruise for me this year)
I can at least walk across the street to a little park....
Or any one of 1,000 neighborhoods in DFW....
Meeting people and getting some fitness in!

I guess I AM still learning - 
That weight-loss, for me -
Is all about the maintenance!
And fitness is for life!

Here's to 5 more years!
Onward and Downward!
