First of all I need to tell you I joined the 5% Fall Challenge again. It's a Race to Fascinating Places - 8 Weeks this Fall. It starts Oct 7th if your interested in checking it out. You join a supportive team and have fun as you lose 5% of your weight, make new friends, and improve your health! I am on the Shooting Stars Team. I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place. I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh? My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi . My mother is 95 and lived with us for 15 years. She's been in memory care this last year and gets weaker every day. It breaks my heart because I always promised her she would live with us until her death. I had no idea I would get old in the mean time too. Today, June 24, 2017, my beloved mother died. 95.7 years old. My heart feels broken. What an up and down ride these years with her have been. All she talked about this last year is being with her mother. She is there now. I have 3 daughters, one lives in the Seattle WA. area and one 1.5 hours away in Silverdale. My Youngest daughter lives here in Port Angeles. and she gave birth Feb 20, 2016 to a beautiful baby girl. I babysit her a couple days a week and am thrilled to do so. I have 4 other grandchildren, ages 24, 19, 7 and 5. My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, rental moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing and keeping our weight off!!

    Welcome back to "Da Dawg Haus"

    I've missed you!

    P.S. My test results were wonderful. Only bad on 3 and a tad low - way over on my cholesterol but you cannot eat the amount of ice cream daily that I was consuming and not go over. I warned doctor already and we will wait on cholesterol until next testing period.

    MPV 2 points low @6.5
    Anion gap 2 points low @5
    co2 was up one point @33
    Like I would know what any of that means emoticon

    Everything else was within the recommended ranges
    Like I said, disgustingly healthy :)
    I can live with that!

    When I looked after 2.25 hours and it was hard to see - I blinked.

    Then at 1:00 it was totally gone! And I've been really careful not to wash that area.

    BTW, My Pure Harvest Roasted Seaweed lists Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Vitamin A on the front of the package! The only thing it doesn't list is - you got it - Iodine :(
    Oh! I typed too soon - on the back it says: These roasted seaweed sheets are rich with minerals, fiber, iodine, vitamins and are fat & cholesterol free! And Product of China! On the site it said New Jersey - off to write to them!

    ** I left a 2-star review as I know it said farmed in New Jersey before - now it doesn't say where it's from!

    Are you interested in joining a challenge team? This challenge works well with the 5%

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Winter challenge will be getting started the beginning of December. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meat your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Fall we had a World Series and a Haunted House. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Winter challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon or let me know and I can send you an invite. Then sign up on the waitlist.
