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 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!

Oh, Cathy. That must drive you crazy with the baby! I remember my one SIL would let the diaper get so heavy it would almost be dragging as her kids were toddling around. My mom, sister or I would grab them and say "Oh, let me change him/her" because we didn't want to start trouble but that drove us crazy! She should try sleeping with a wet depends on! I have been feeling okay. This week I actually slept until my alarm went off, which is very unusual. Today I woke up at 5:30, ugh. I didn't get up but I wish I could have slept longer. The half-time show is usually the best part of the Super Bowl! We're staying at home this year. Last year we went to a friend's house but I have to work on Monday and it just gets too late. I need to be home on Sunday night to mentally prepare myself for the upcoming week. I can't wait to retire! My dog was laying out in the sun for a bit. That was so nice to see....We still have a lot of snow in the yard but we can see some grass. I'm glad that your itchy skin is doing better. My son had a rash in his under arms which I'm guessing is from his antiperspirant but he said that he didn't change brands. There is always something! Lana

Hi, Cathy. How are things? It's a nice day here today. I just took the dog on a nice walk. It was brisk, but not bad. They're looking at more snow Monday into Tuesday. At this point they're not sure how much, but I hope it's not a lot! It was a crazy, busy week at work so I am so ready for the weekend. My son is working the weekend so I'm looking forward to the peace & quiet. Will you watch the Super Bowl? I'm rooting for Denver, I like Peyton Manning. I went grocery shopping yesterday so my husband has "junk" food to eat during the game. Lol. I hope everything is okay with your family. Have a good week! Lana

Hi, Cathy. I don't think skin testing is the best way to find allergies. I had skin testing done after my diagnosis and nothing showed up. If you feel better without gluten then you're on the right track. When I first fed my son solids I remember that he wouldn't eat the green vegetables without adding carrots to them. He actually was getting an orange ring around his neck! The doctor said it wasn't anything to worry about but it looked odd. I would imagine it's hard to know what to do when you're young. I'm glad I was older until I because a mom. I didn't do too much today. We walked the dog and then took her to a pet store to their wash station to give her a bath. That's the first that we tried doing that and it worked out nicely. She's 80 lbs. and we normally wash her in the bathtub but then that's a mess and it's hard to get her in & out. In the summer she gets washed in the yard. She was scared at first but then she was okay. I went for groceries later which I don't like to do on a Saturday but it was the first that I was able to go this week. So that's about it. I think tomorrow is suppose to get near 50 degrees so that will be nice! Have a good week, Lana

Hi, Cathy. This past week has been a blur. We got 30 inches of snow, a record for our area. I ended up working 12.5 hours on Saturday. I was exhausted when I left and still felt that way on Sunday. Between my disease and my age my body isn't what it used to be! This entire week has been trying to get things back on a normal keel. It's supposed to be warmer this weekend, thank goodness! I'm sorry to hear that son son was in an accident. I'm glad that he's okay but I can imagine how scary that was for you. I hope the rice cereal helps Walker. It's often hard when babies are breastfed to get things just right. My co-worker's baby wouldn't latch on right so she pumps it and feeds her from a bottle. That seems to be working fine and she's gaining weight. My son was colic and my milk never came in so I wasn't able to nurse him for long. He was on a special formula for babies with allergies because it was easier on his colicky stomach. It was expensive but worth it. I understand what you're going through - gluten is in everything! It's so hard. We ate out last night and I got a plain hamburger, no bun, I specified totally plain. As I was eating I could taste spices on it...many of them contain gluten so now I wait to see if I'm going to feel like crap. So that's about it from my neck of the snowy country. Have a great weekend! Lana

Hi, Cathy. Well, the snow has started and they are calling for this to be a major storm. I was hoping it would blow past us but I don't think we're going to get so lucky. We could get anywhere up to 3 feet, they're still not sure. The winds are supposed to get bad tomorrow which will really make things interesting! It was a busy week at work, I am glad for the weekend. Do you have any plans? I'm guessing our weekend will be low key because he'll be blowing snow and helping the neighbors. Have a good weekend!
