    Thanks for your comment. Yes I do understand! It's actually the 5 year anniversary of losing my beloved dog to acute pancreatitis ...on top of everything else. But I am doing ok. The support here has helped a lot!

    You pose a difficult question. I joined to get support to lose weight. Shortly after that, I had an injury and was in a wheelchair for a long time. I put on more weight. Second surgery a year later, finally three years later I'm not quite back to normal, but moving a lot. Unfortunately, doc says my ankle is now bone on bone. As you may have noticed, I'm a gardener, so I'm back to living better by chemistry. Shared all that so you'd understand, even though I have made some great friends here, I haven't lost weight. I've also become more sporadic in interacting via SP because I don't care for the page changes that were recently made.

    Thank you for the compliment on my page! The photo was made via Best wishes on your journey!

    emoticon CAN MUSCLE TRANSFORM INTO FAT? emoticon

    Can muscle turn into fat? It sure looks like it can, but the reality is it can’t. When you have tight and defined muscles and you quit working out with weights or exercising at all in some cases, it seems like your hard muscle turns to flab. Remember muscle and fat are two different entities and one can not turn into another. What happens is when you stop exercising your muscle fibers grow smaller while your fat cells grow larger. With exercise, your muscles make the fibers grow but when you stop exercising, they reduce in size. Likewise, your body’s fat cells can change in size depending on how much fat each one stores. So to keep your body fit, healthy and strong, keep up your exercise and don’t let conditioned muscles become flabby!
