I know fall won't be for two weeks yet but it is feeling like fall weather now and the humidity is gone.

My husband and I are on a low carb diet and we have stopped eating anything with sugar. So far I have lost 6 pounds and he has lost 4 pounds. We've cut down to eating two meals a day, breakfast and supper without snacks..I shot this self portrait as a way of keeping track of my weight loss. As of today I weigh 132 lbs. I also have been walking twice a day. My goal is to get down to 125 pounds or less. My husband wants to get down from 170 to 160 and his goal is to lose 10 lbs. I don't miss desserts at all and at this age it is more important to keep healthy.

    A true inspiration...walking, no sugar and my philosophy is nothing 'white'...all will keep you in good health, you look great!

    Thank you Lynn...I am determined to stay away from sugar and I know I can do it. We went
    to the grocery store this evening and wasn't tempted at all by the cookies, pies or cakes in
    the bakery department or the greasy smell!

    Hi Tiia, Your second comment made me smile:)..At the age I am now at 75 I need to stay on track That means breaking old habits and taking charge of my own health even though it means working harder to reach those goals..and I know I can do it.

    Such a beautiful portrait, Andrea! I love your outfit and jewellery, too. I seldom eat sweets, usually only fresh fruit for dessert but once in awhile I get a craving for chocolate.. my downfall :) Your determination is very inspiring, keep up the good work!
