When All You Can Do is Look at the Pretty Cheesecakes! I love cake. My favorite cake is lemon cake. For many years on my #birthday, my husband baked a lemon cake for me, and I had a joyous time eating it ... until my #weight ballooned to 189 pounds! I was in serious denial about my weight. I made all kinds of excuses, such as something was wrong with the scale in my doctor's office. When my mother died, I changed my #diet. My #weightlossjourney has been a long, slow, methodical process. It has taken 14 years for me to lose 34 pounds. I am still working on the last 10 stubborn pounds. One #weightlossstrategy is to limit myself to one slice of #cake per year. So when I see gorgeous, mouth-watering cakes lined up at The Cheesecake Factory, all I can do is look and admire the #cheesecake #cheesecakes #cheesecakefactory #fitness #fitnessplan #fitnessforlife #fit #health #healthy #healthyliving #healthylifestyle #loseweight #weightlossplan #howtoloseweight #overwieght #over50 #50plus #aging #aginggracefully #agingwell #babyboomer #babyboomers #midlife #midlifer #womenover50 #womenover40

Retirement is Seeing a Play at 12 Noon on a Weekday! One of the items on my #bucketlist is to see a #play at the #historic #fordstheater #fordstheatre in #washington #washingtondc! We found cheap tickets at #travelzoo and a 12noon performance of #JeffersonsGarden We thought the audience would be mostly #seniors #seniorcitizens #over50 #50plus #babyboomer #babyboomers #midlife #elderly #elders #retirees #retiree #retired but we were surpised to see a range of ages. What's on your bucket list? What have you crossed off of your bucket list? #bucketlistadventure #bucketlistadventures #retire #retirement #retireyourway #earlyretirement #retireearly #activeretirement

What to Do About Choppy Stock Markets! If you are #retired or about to #retire in the next few years, the recent #volatility in the #stockmarket #stockmarkets #financialmarket #financialmarkets must be unnerving ... It feels like we have absolutely no #control over what is happening to our #nestegg #nesteggs #investment #investments #investmentaccounts #retirementaccounts but always remember -- a loss is not a loss until you sell ... If you can just hold on for the #rollercoaster ride & think #longterm, you may feel a bit #calmer ... We remember the #stockmarketcrash of 1987. In one day we lost one-third of our #retirementaccount! We were #young & just starting our in our #careers. We were afraid we were going to lose everything so we panicked! The best way to prepare for choppy stock markets is at thefiftyplusnetwork.com/?p=2249 #aging #babyboomer #babyboomers #midlife #midlifer #womenover50 #womenover40 #retiree #retirees #retirement #retirementplan #retirementplanner

Drink 2 Cups of Decaf Coffee with Cream & Sugar Every Day! That was my morning routine for decades ... It gave me a #warmfuzzy #warmfuzzies #warmfuzzyfeeling #warmfuzzyfeelings until now ...

Love Your Gray Hair So It Will Love You Back! After taking my Christmas selfie, I looked at the photo and noticed a small gray hair on my cheek. I started to re-take the photo, but then I decided to let that gray hair be. That gray hair says “See me!” My gray hair has a life of it’s own ...

Diamond Jubilee Gala -- Have Fun & Donate! One of the most satisfying aspects of #retirement is that you can enjoy the fruits of your #labor and help others along the way. The good feeling of helping someone less fortunate is a warm fuzzy feeling ... We had the opportunity to attend a Diamond Jubilee Gala where we could dress up, dance, have loads of fun, and help high school students raise funds for #college #scholarships!
