As of today I have lost 7 lbs on my diet and also walking twice a day, I can fit into my favorite dress again which makes me very happy:) I shot this on the North side of our property where the sun wasn't so bright and has natural colors. This is right from the camera and no editing. Now that I am 75 I love this shade of purple. Red used to be my favorite color.

Update: October 6..Still on the diet and I have lost 9 pounds altogether as of today ...My husband and I have cut out on sugar and that means..no cookies, pies, doughnuts, cakes, candy, Frozen Yogurt, Ice cream or even fruit juices that are loaded with sugar..My husband made some apple cider from crab apples off our tree without adding sugar and it was actually good....Who would think sour apples could taste good if it were not sweetened? Our goal is to stay healthy as at this age we have no choice. We are not losing weight at a rapid rate but at a sensible rate. My grandmother on my mother's side had diabetes and I watched as a teenager
when she gave herself insulin shots...Not a pretty disease nor easy to control.

New Update: 12/17/ 2018
Since my husband and I started our changed way of eating since August we have lost more
weight ..I have lost 13 lbs altogether and my husband has lost 14 lbs. We have cut out on
dairy products, sugar, and eating snacks in between but we eat til we are full on two meals a day. We don't really consider it a diet as we don't count calories...I have maintained my goal weight now at 125 lbs and my husband's weight is at 158. It may not be for everyone but it works for us.

    Thank you for your comments...It is much appreciated. This is one of few outside self portraits that I can honestly say that I like, past or present ...It is the exact color of the dress and there are no harsh shadows on my face:) It helps to stand in the shade for softer lighting.
