Many people in my over-55 community are, to quote one of my neighbors, “Waiting to go.”
Actually, they called Florida “God’s waiting room.” What! Is that what really happens? I asked around and found out it was.
After some thought, I realized I had been too.
This book is about how my life changed when I learned to “live life consciously.” Because, at the age of sixty-two, I learned I didn’t need to lie down and wait for the end to come. It was my choice to go forward…or not.
So, I went forward…and joined a dating site.
And met someone who changed everything.
Realize please, this isn’t a dating book. It’s how, through interactions with Rick, spiritual books, and journeys to places like Cassadaga, Florida, I learned about self-healing, and that I could literally change my thoughts, to be a more positive and empowering person.
That with those changes, life took an entirely new path. How easily things come to you when you learn to let go.

Whether married and divorced, whether widowed or ending a long-term relationship—and it doesn’t matter the age—almost everyone will find themself back in the dating world at some point. The idea of returning to the dating scene is frightening enough to keep some people from trying at all. The reasons are many: what family might think, the fear of getting hurt, being set in our ways, and the one we’ve heard most of all from older people—not letting someone see what time has done to their body.
The diet industry is one of the biggest in today’s American economy
All that said, How I Lost a Thousand Pounds Eating My Way to Better Health is not your typical diet book. It is my personal journey, my many years of battling obesity, and how, during the trip, I lost well over a thousand pounds—up and down, up and down.
Let’s face it folks, dieting has become a national pastime, just like baseball
Sound familiar? Finally I found success. I lost over one hundred pounds and, with the knowledge I’ve developed about eating, it will stay off. Hopefully, my story about all the different methods I tried over the years will help you move to the downward side of the hill.
“Boston Medical Center indicates that approximately 45 million Americans diet each year and spend $33 billion on weight lost products.”
The world is in a perpetual search for quick weight loss programs. But, be realistic. How can there be any such thing—outside of chopping the fat from your body? How could you expect the weight to come off overnight? Was it gained with a snap of the fingers? Or the twitch of a nose?
: “It only takes a weight loss of 5% to bring significant health benefits that may lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of diabetes developing.”
The goal should be consistent weight reduction over a period of time. You must be prepared to develop a whole new outlook on food and what it does to your body.
