I am hoping like mad I can lose the weight faster in 2012. I am now 70. Not getting any
younger. Of course, being hypothyroid doesn't make things easier. I am being so careful, even over my birthday and Christmas. I do feel fed up. I do feel the pain of my burn and my
rheumatoid arthritis would lessen if I lost a lot of weight. I am sorry to moan. I am just
having a bad day. Hugs from Sylvia

  Dear Claire, Gail and Skynir,
Thank you so much for your encouragement which is much appreciated. May I wish you three, health, happiness and luck for 2012. At midnight Keith and I will be having a glass
of champagne diluted with orange juice and will be toasting each other. We give each other
a new year's card and a little present. Tomorrow New Year's Day we always the New Year's
concert from Vienna by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. On Sky Arts 2 tv today
(newly added to my tv programmes) I am going square-eyed watching Andre Rieu for 24 HOURS!Hugs to everybody from Sylvia, Keith and the teddies

    Sylvia, I think you should be proud of yourself for all your efforts. Weight loss takes time indeed, especially with hypothyroid. But don't get discouraged, you are doing lots of good to your body already... keep going!
I hope you'll feel really encouraged and that the New Year will be a good one for you!
With best wishes from Paris,

    Hi Sylvia - you should be proud of yourself for not over-eating on the holidays - I really over-did it, and feel pretty yucky as a result. Serves me right!

I think that as we get older it is harder to lose weight, and since you are hypothyroid and your exercise is limited, it's even harder for you. Those things must make you really frustrated, and I wish i could do or say something to help.

I'll just say that I'm proud of you for trying. You have lost weight, even if it isn't as much as you'd hoped. Keep up the good work, and I hope the weight loss helps with the pain from your burn.

Best wishes to you and Keith for the New Year.

    Hang in there and don't give up. Weight loss can be incredibly slow.
