Rita and I were determined to lose weight and stay strong - and we usually did until after 40 hit us! The memory I share is when we traveled to Amelia Island to "workout" and only eat measured amounts of "healthy" foods for a week. It was horrible- and we didn't lose one pound! We felt terrible, our muscles hurt, couldn't sleep and we argued until one of us finally said "I need food!" After that we had a much desired big meal and slept well that night! For a time Rita joked how I starved her while making her run on the beach and workout and didn't lose a pound. Amazingly we survived and I will always treasure my time with Rita.
