I have been doing very well. On an average I am losing 2 lbs a month, not bad for someone who's mostly on bed rest, due to a bad foot. That's been the case since June,,,, with at "the moment" allowed to walk,,, some, and I AM !!! This will NOT last for long,, the hardware is coming out of the side of my foot. It's a race between that coming outta my big toe,,,, or the bone healing aided by a bone stimulator.

Does this KEEP ME from Exercising? NO !! it does NOT !!! I am a GOOOO GETTER !! This was my # 18th surgery on feet. and if I used "pain" as an "excuse" to not move since most of my injuries are life long, I'd NEVER Do ANY. I am surrounded on the DAWGGIE team (5% challenge to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks), with 2 other Leaders also in severe, lasting pain, who also are GOOO GETTERS or working on being such. GOOO CHERI and MARYANNGI ! If THEY CAN do it ,,, so CAN I unless my Dr has me on a "not do a thing" order,,, which only happens at surg recovery time,, 2 weeks. He WANTS me to do things,, as do ALL of my Dr's,,,, and I used to be a gymnast when in HS,, I LOVE pushing my body ! WOOHOOOO !!

My goal for this yr,, is to go from 210 down to 190 ! YEAH ! YES I WANT ONEDERLAND ! I CAN DO THIS ! Hoping either May or June for that. :) I go slower than a turtle, but I GET THERE !!!

I like the idea of no junk food or just a limited number of calories of junk food. What a great idea! emoticon

I had a bad day Saturday because I was worried about my mother's youngest sister. She had battled colon cancer for years and was put in the hospital last week. They had to remove 10 inches of her small intestine that was just dead tissue. Then while there she developed pneumonia so they put her in ICU. During the surgery to remove the dead tissue, her heart stopped and they had to restart it. So I have been praying for her and yesterday was just a bad day. I couldn't stop thinking about her. When I was in my early teens, she and I would lie on her bed and read romance novels. Back then they weren't near as racy as they are now! But last night my mom called me and told me that she had been moved to a regular room and had even gotten up and walked a little bit. So my prayers last night and today have been in thanksgiving for her improved status!

We had a great time camping. Of course the weather was yuck! Friday was the best weather day and there was a beautiful sunset! We went to Short Stay which is a Joint Base Charleston recreation place. We pretty much grew up there as children and we took our girls there while they were growing up! We love the waterfront sites as we have the best views of the lake there.
We celebrated my hubby's 50th birthday. He had a great time. We were surrounded by family and friends.

I got in some exercise and I was BAD on my eating and drinking emoticon (it was a weekend long celebration with awesome bad for me foods) I was able to log in some but the internet access was not the best so I stuck with just basic stuff. I'm doing my best to catch up!

I hope your kitty is doing better! Zena is worn out from all her fun around the campground. She got to sniff out all kind of new smells, chase some ducks and geese, visit with a lot of people and get extra attention, her dad made sure to give her breakfast every morning and his dad made an egg just for her. She is a very well loved pup! When we got home, last night, she passed out on her bed and barely moved until hubby got up and took her out at 4 am this morning then she laid back down and wouldn't move until around 1:00 pm. She was exhausted. lol
