I am a 60+ woman. I've lost 50+ lbs and have 4lbs to get to my first target. I hope it wil be soon. The last few pounds seem to take forever, this will help me keep healthy and more able to enjoy my grandchildren. Next goal will be 5lbs. then WOW!!
Reached that first "Goal!" I feel "FANTASTIC" and very "HAPPY". Now to tackle the last 5 lbs. This site is wonderful, can find "Inspiration" every day.

    HI GOODY it is getting cold in Maine. DH is happy but I am not so happy I am always cold. I have bought fleece pants for when I am indoors, I just have to hem them and I will be wearing them. I hope all is well with you, I am going to the Eye Dr with my Fred and he will be having evaluation of his bad eye. I think the eye Dr did my surgery early I only had beginning cataracts but I do think he might be checking the eye very closely today. I will eventually take over the driving but I hope Fred can decide when he does not want to drive. HUGS and much love across the miles. Pat in Maine.((((HUGS))))
