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. Working out with weight machines at the gym. Now going to tackle the lower back fat. I still need to lose 5 more lbs and that will help..
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!

Hey, Cathy. Just your son and his wife moving in would be a big adjustment, much less with 2 dogs! I hope it goes OK for you. I wouldn't change my plans for her, either. She has to adapt to your household. I feel for you with what you can't eat. I just called the restaurant we're going to tonight to make sure they have something that I can eat. I looked at the menu online and wasn't to sure about it. So while everyone is eating yummy pasta dishes I'll have plain chicken and a double order of vegetables because I can't eat the starches that they're offering today. :-( It looks like it's going to snow here even though they're not calling for it. It's very gray and damp. Bleh. I hope your dog feels better soon! Lana

Hi, Cathy. We have a busy weekend. Friday night we had a birthday party, yesterday we went shopping at the mall that's 45 minutes away and tonight we're meeting friends for dinner. I'll need to go back to work to rest. LOL. I have been feeling fine lately. I made some gluten free pumpkin to take along to the birthday party so I ate that while everyone else had chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Sometimes life isn't fair! :-) But I'm OK with the pumpkin bread. The bad thing is I eat too much of it and then it's like a brick in my stomach. Eating at the restaurant last night was a gamble but I think everything I ate was OK. It's going to be in the 40's here today. It hasn't been too bad lately. I made out good shopping yesterday. I bought a pair of leather boots that were 1/2 price. It's hard to find leather boots anymore, everything seems to be synthetic. I didn't find anything for my husband or son, though. My son is so hard to buy for. He never gives me any ideas! That's probably the last time we'll go to that mall before Christmas. It was packed! I hope the doctor is soon able to get your hormones straightened out. I just had my cycle again. It's now coming like every 72 days so maybe I am finally getting near the finish line. I can't wait! Do you bake for the holidays? My son said all he wants is Oreo balls so that's all I'm going to make. My husband doesn't need all of the goodies...he needs to lose weight! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Lana

Hi, Cathy. We had a great time in Disney. It was hard to leave the high 70's to return to the high 30's with rain. Bleh. It's very windy today. I didn't have any issues with eating while we were there. Disney does a great job with kids with food allergies so I could order without worrying about eating something that would make me sick. The crowds weren't bad at all this time of the year and the parks were decorated beautifully. I definitely am not ready to go back to work tomorrow! Our dog is so glad to be back home. She slept most of the day yesterday. She was exhausted from being boarded. She doesn't eat much, either so she lost weight. That makes me feel so guilty. :-( I hope things go OK with your son moving back in with you. I hope his wife is friendlier to you! Not much else new here. The weather was saying something about a snow storm coming our way but I didn't read it. I'm not ready for that yet! We're going to run to Costco later so I guess I better stock up. Have a good week!

Hi,Cathy. It snowed most of Wednesday but it was a slushy snow. Just enough to make a mess of everything when everyone had last minute holiday running around to do. Thanksgiving Day was cold, but not bad. It was cold today but as long as it's not windy I'm OK with it. We're leaving for FL on Monday morning and it's supposed to be in the 70's all week there. Yay! I haven't packed yet, I'm not sure what to take. I didn't do any Black Friday shopping. I don't like crowds and last year Cyber Monday had better sales anyway. We went to Kohl's tonight to get my son a belt and it was empty. He is going back to school on Sunday but he'll soon be home for Christmas break. I feel badly that we have to board our dog while we're away but we don't have anyone who has a fenced in yard who can keep her. She will still take off if she gets the chance. Have a good weekend! Lana
