I am 55 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 ...

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. Decorating the baby's room -- I can't wait for those days! Such an exciting time in your life. I'm feeling good today. I bundled up and took the dog for a 20 minute walk. I really wasn't cold but I had a lot of layers on. I wear a ski mask, I guess I could go rob a 7-11 after the walk. LOL I'm feeling good. There for a while I was eating too much gluten free junk food and my stomach was showing it so I cut back on that stuff. Sometimes I just need something crunchy and it's hard to find something to take away that craving. Wow, sorry you had so much pain. I would be with you, I'd go for the cream. With my colitis I have to be careful what medication I take because a lot can cause stomach issues. We're heading to a town about 30 minutes away to watch my son's former high school play in the district basketball game. I hope the snow isn't too bad by the time we come out. Enjoy the rest of your day! Lana
Hey, Cathy. Well, after a week of temperatures not much above zero they're calling for 5-9 inches of snow today and then freezing rain. Yay. Any houses for sale in your area? LOL. I have some errands I want to do but I'm not sure when the snow will start. It's the worst when it first starts to fall, then the roads are very slippery. Not too much going on here. I have my cycle after 54 days...ugh. I had it twice in December so I never know what to expect. I have the cookbook Against All Grain and I think I'll try a new recipe since I'll be cooped up inside this weekend. How are things in your neck of the woods? Take care, Lana
Hi, Cathy. It is cold here, was something like -4 when we woke up! It is not windy, though so that's a good thing. I was doing a load of wash and discovered that the pipes were frozen. It didn't take much for my husband to thaw it out with the blow dryer, thank goodness. My son made it back to school OK. There wasn't much traffic and he said the roads were clear. They were warning people to stay home if you didn't have to be out so I think that was the case (and people don't want to be out in this cold!) LOL. My husband & I are both off today. We're going to lunch and a little shopping and then to see American Sniper. I heard it's very good but I know I will be sad at the end. The shopping is outlet stores and of course it's all outside so I don't think we'll be shopping too much! Have a good week! Lana
Hi,Cathy. It didn't warm up. It is bitterly cold here today. The wind is like 60 mph which is blowing the snow. My son said when he came home last night he could not see. And no, he didn't come home early, it was around 1 a.m. Needless to say his dad & I didn't sleep very well between waiting for him to come in & the wind! He is driving back to school now so I will be relieved when I hear that he is back there safely. They have reduced the speed on the interstates to 45 due to the drifting snow. Is it spring yet? I'm glad that your son is feeling better. Enjoy your weather, I would gladly switch places with you! I know you mind the heat, I'm not at that point yet. I think I told you that my Gyn said she thinks I still ovulate! Good grief! :-) Have a good week, Lana
