January 6, 2012: Once again, getting started. Recent blood tests show that I have still managed to dodge the diabetes bullet, though I have been glucose intolerant for over 40 years. I know that it has to do with my efforts to stay active and eat healthfully. I am stepping up the effort in order to work off some of this weight over the next few months. I hired a personal trainer, and she does a great job of challenging me to work harder and stronger. My local supermarkets have all increased the selections of organic and locally grown foods. I have spent a great deal of time traveling the past couple of years, and plan to spend more time at home this year, so food challenges will be easier to manage. Here's to a great 2012!!!!!

July, 2010: I am a lot of things--an accountant, working retiree, Master Gardener, Toastmaster, reader of mysteries, cat lover and caretaker of 7 cats. world traveler, among other things. I am also developing chronic health issues as a result of weight I can't seem to lose. Being able to track calories and other nutrients and also exercise has really helped me so far!

    Hey Linda,
    I do so appreciate your comments on my blog today. But I am so dissappointed to learn that you have not lost any weight because of the allergies.

    That is wrong on so many levels. LOL, LOL, LOL. emoticon

    And here I was looking forward to being skinny in a short period of time. Well, I guess that is not going to happen. Darn it.

    You busted my bubble. I guess someone needed to. Glad it was you.

    Blessings,
    Brenda

    Hey,
    Thanks for reading and commenting on my yesterday's blog.

    I grew up with allergies and some of them went away as I grew up . At least they went away for a while. Now some are back full force, plus some new ones . I don't like not being normal . . . . whatever that is!

    I wish you blessings,
    Brenda
