Happy New Year. I see you went on a walk on Jan. 1. I was in Birch Bay and went for a bike ride, Yikes! It was really cold. But fun. Hope to see you around soon:)

Thanks for your good thoughts...and particularly the OMG! So how are you doing? I've actually gained a couple of pounds the past couple of's been a helluva couple of weeks. Read my blog if you want to know. But I'll get back on track. Actually, I already am.

Hey girlfriend! Thanks for your comments on my fitness minutes! Glad you like my new photo. Maybe now that you have a new phone with a camera in it you can take a new pic of yourself and put it up on your profile. emoticon

Boy, I wish I had some hints for you! Actually, I have one. Take a grant-writing class, or learn how to write grants. With libraries closing their doors because of the economy, a good grant writer is worth her weight in platinum. I didn't say the hint would be easy!!! Thanks also for your nice words about my continuing weight loss. I want to be at 160 before my breast reduction surgery November 17th, and this morning the scale said 170.4...I think I can do 10 pounds in 9 weeks.

Hi Maura, thanks for your comments on my page last week. I've been really busy lately. I had been preparing our house for company that came to stay with us over the weekend. Unfortunately, the person that came to visit us had changed since we saw them last and so our visit with them was okay at best. emoticon Then shortly before they arrived I found out that my aunt's ovarian cancer had returned just a couple of months after having surgery to remove more tumors. They have given her a few weeks to live. I can't afford to fly out to Colorado to go see her so I'm stuck with just having to call to see how she's doing. emoticon

It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now. I hope you like what you're doing??

To answer your question about what my game plan is to help lose this weight is continue exercising as much as possible and continue to eat right. I am also hoping that this new doctor I'm seeing will be able to help me by adjusting my med's some so that I can start to lose again. It's very frustrating to be doing everything right and not lose for 6 months or more. I hope you'll be able to get back on track so that you can start to lose weight.

Have a great rest of the week and weekend!
