I am 56 and finally starting to lose weight. My goal is to get the excess fat off and live a healthier life style. I have been working on the upper back fat for a while and starting to see progress.

With the weight loss I am hoping my cholesterol decreases also. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a year ago so that has been a challenge.. The doctor thinks I got it as a result of my knee replacement. Bummer fix one thing get another. Oh well life is full of challenges. One day at a time!
Hi,Cathy. I am enjoying the weekend with my son. He came home on Thursday night. We were up last night past midnight talking. We're going to go out for dinner tonight. It is great to have him home again. I slept straight through the night, which is unusual for me. I think he needed some major R & R. He slept till after 11 today and now he went to the gym. We're going to go shopping for a new bed for him later today. We're going to take his to his apartment at college and get him a new one for here. They're going to keep the same apartment next year so we won't have to move his things since we pay the rent for 12 months. He's sleeping in a twin size now! He's 6 feet tall so I can't imagine what that's like for him. In the dorm last year he at least had a twin extra long! So that's about it from here. Glad you're having a good time with your sister! I'm glad your hormones are getting better and I hope the hot flashes soon go away! I'm always cold but I was hot at work the other day. I hope that's not starting for me! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lana
Thanks for touching base, Cathy. Glad you are doing well. Praying for those hot flashes to come under control. I was on Estrogen for many years. Hang in there.
Our temps here are not that bad, and we don't have a lot of humidity. That is south of us. We are Top-of-Tx, and we stay pretty arid. It gets HOT in the summer, but we did have a little more rain this past summer that kept things bearable. Right now we are cooling down nicely, staying 60s to low 80s during the day. This is a good time of year for me, so being ill and unable to get out and walk is very frustrating. It will get too cold too quickly, so I am not liking the hindrance.
Hope you have a great today! Miss seeing you on the team. For such a large team, it is too quiet. Very discouraging.
Thanks, Cathy. I am glad you are holding your ground with Fibro. I have been doing really well since the temps came down and I can get outside to walk. That seems to be helping more than anything. The med the doc put me on helped in one way, but made things much worse in others, so I did not stay on it. My recent bout with a respiratory illness did not help. I have felt the threat of a flair several times, but so far it is not bad. Still on the mend and hoping to be back to normal routines and healing soon. You are in my thoughts and I miss your presence! But so glad you are living life and journeying forward. Darlene
Hey, Cathy. It must be a Costco day, that's what I did, too. It's about 45 minutes from my house. I wanted to stock up on salmon and a few other things. I bought a pair of snow boots since we're supposed to have a harsh winter again. My other boots are shot. I thought I liked these but they felt heavy once I got them home. I hope they work out OK. My stomach is OK. I haven't eaten out a whole lot with my husband being away and that has helped. I never know what they'll put on my food when we go out to eat. He'll be home in about 3 weeks. I miss not trying the samples at Costco! LOL The weather here is cool. It rained yesterday but the sun was out today. A lot of people are sick with colds & sinus already so I'm hoping to dodge that! Have a good week. Lana
Hi,Cathy. I don't know which is worse, my never-ending period of your hot flashes! Someone at work my age was saying how she is throwing the covers off all night...I'm glad I don't have that to deal with. I did think of having an ablation, but with my colitis I'm afraid that might kick something up. My sister & niece had fibroids, so maybe I do, too. If it doesn't soon end (at my age) I will have to do something. Work is very busy and I'm beat till I get home. This is really getting old. I can retire in May and that is sounding better all of the time. I want to enjoy life, not just make it through every day! Enjoy your time with your sister. I have two sisters but we really aren't close. I wish we were but we are all very different. I am closer to my brothers. Have a good evening. Lana PS I can't imagine having snow already. Yuk! They are saying we're going to have a harsh winter. I'm not looking forward to that!
