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!
Hey, Cathy. Wow, he does need his mom to whip some sense into him! You wonder sometimes what gets into their heads....that sure doesn't sound like a place that anyone would want to move to! And as we know, I'm sure the girl he is texting wouldn't turn out to be his dream girl but sometimes they learn that too late! Good luck with that. My son really likes his internship. I'm glad things are going so well for him. He'll be home this weekend for the 4th and then next weekend he'll be going on vacation with his girlfriend's family for a week. I can't believe it's the 4th of July, either. A friend once said once the 4th is here the summer flies by and I think he's right. I hate to see that happen! We had such a cold winter I don't want summer to be over anytime soon! Take care, Lana
Hi, Cathy. Another rainy day here. It's going to rain all day. I'm going to get some things done around the house and then head to the large mall that's 45 minutes away. I'm sure a lot of other people will be doing that, too! This summer is starting out like last summer and that's not a good thing. Wow, one month and you'll be a grandmother! HOw exciting! My co-worker had her baby this week. She was big - the baby weighed 8 lb., 4 oz. She is very thin so she was all baby. I've been feeling OK, still have some bloating. I only work 3 days next week so I'm looking forward to that. Hope you get to go on a bike ride. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! Lana
Hi, Cathy. We had rain a couple of days this week. We had a heavy t-storm last night but today was dry but it was windy. I don't like to be outside when it's windy. We grilled for dinner, which was nice. They had spareribs and I had steak because I can't eat the bar-b-q sauce. I have been bloated lately and I'm not sure why but I feel OK. I am starting to get hot flashes, but not too bad. They come mainly at night when I'm in bed. My son is headed back to his internship. It's always nice to have him home & I hate to see him leave. He said he'll be back in 2 weeks. I hope you had a nice Father's Day with your men. Have a good week! Lana
Hi, Cathy. Another weekend is here. Time is flying by. My son is home and we took he & his girlfriend out to dinner this evening. It was very nice. We were able to sit outside on a patio. I had gluten free pasta which was good. Tomorrow evening we're going to a theater with some other couples. I'm looking forward to that. ON Father's Day we're just going to hang out here. The weather forecast isn't the best, I think it's supposed to rain. We needed the rain but we had pretty much this week so I think we should be caught up by now. Not much else is new here. I hope your daughter-in-law is doing well. Have a good weekend! Lana
You know, I get so wrapped up in the struggle to reach the goal line that I forget to simply live the journey. My goal for summer 2015 is to simply live it; to keep moving forward, even if I stumble along the way. It is the lifestyle I want, to walk the road with faithful fervor. So I am going to focus on simply living it.
Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. (Psalm 37)
