Twister: The Joy of Weight Loss!

Every year my husband and I have a BIG New Year's Eve Party.  There is music, dancing, laughing, eating and games..yes games!  Well, last year I decided I wanted to play Twister.  I hadn't played in years and now that I've lost so much weight and workout regularly, I felt confident that this would be something fun for us to do.  However, I hadn't counted on the fact that many of our friends do NOT feel like they can play Twister.  Excuses: too old, too fat, too stiff, wearing a skirt(ok...this one works for me), can't get down there etc.  Needless to say, we did not play and I haven't been able to get any adults to play with me, yet!

Well, last week in walks sweet, handsome 5 year old favorite little guy in the entire world!  As usual, he comes over for a visit and wants to know if I can come outside to play.  I swear I LOVE this kid!  Well, of course, I can.  On the way out the door I grab Twister.  It's a beautiful day and I am thinking why not play a game or two of Twister...outdoors.  Woohoo!  What a great idea.  The kids are all for it!  I tell them the rules and next thing..GAME ON!  We had a BLAST!  Laughing, giggling, falling over and just simply having a great time, in the front yard, playing Twister  Yay!

This is just one of the extra, happy moments in my life.  A moment that reminds me that when you take care of your health, age is just a number!  There is so much to enJOY and so much we miss when we CHOOSE not to exercise and eat healthy!  I have given myself a whole new life, simply by LOVING me a bit more and I am LOVING it!

Have a Happy, Healthy Day,
