Linda Gauthier

Who's Linda?  We all wear tags we see ourselves as and mine at the moment are changing, a few months ago it would be wife, mom, secretary. Now I'm newly retired, my children have just headed off to forge their new lives and adventures, so I'm re-discovering who I am.  I love  cooking, painting, I love photography, gardening and reading and making jewllery.  I care about social issues deeply, I'm an advocate for children and young adults with special needs.  I find beauty in the simplest things, the way a flower looks first thing in the morning with the dew on it, clouds are a big one for me. I worry about the future we are leaving our children and grandchildren.  I'm a strong beliver in sustainability and protecting our food sources by supporting our local farmers; I live on an island and this issue alone makes it that much more important.  I'm a Canadian, who lives in one of the most beautiful cities I know, Victoria B.C. on wonderful Vancouver Island.  I was born and raised here, I have lived in other areas of this wonderful country and I find I love the East Coast as much as the West but my heart always pulls me back home. 

I'm new to blogging and I've just started writing my blog "My Simply Delicious Weight Loss Adventure with Epicure Selections" .  I'm journaling my weight loss and recipes to  1. force myself to stick to it . 2. to help my daughter and my best friend loose weight,( they are on the East Coast) it is our online support group and motivation.  3. because I've found I love blogging.  This is in a nutshell is some of who Linda is, but it definitetly is not the sum of her.

Challenges and struggles my personal war with my body.
