I wish the government would keep their grubby paws out of it. We did jut fine celebrating this holiday on the fourth for hundreds of years. I saw some businesses closed early on Thursday to celebrate the holiday that officially falls on Saturday. Everybody seems to be concerned with time off. I guess I have been retired too long. Hope all have a wonderful weekend. Fri, 3 Jul 2015 09:39:49 EST The celebrating begins http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5954394 Exercises are going well. Weight is still down. Calories remain below 1300. TRivia is still at 100%. My doctor appointment went very well. Cholesterol is 121. Triglycerides are 59. LDL is 76. Ratio is 3.7. Glucose 105. A1C 6.1. I am still focused on getting my weight below 200lbs. I hope to get my waist size down one more size. Then my BMI should be in the acceptable range. Keeping focused for success.

Thu, 2 Jul 2015 10:48:22 EST A New Month http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5953738 We finally were able to deliver the message to Lowes that they were putting defective used timers back on the shelf an that is why I ad to go back three times before they finally opened up a new case and gave me one from the new box. It worked and we are finally back in business. They have a problem that needs to be rectified. One less problem for e. I now have to get ready to stop by the cable office and check on why my bill is changing. I have a doctor's appointment at ten this morning...

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:36:50 EST New lows http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5950731 I went to Dillard's for their sale yesterday and discovered that I am down one pant size to 40 and down another shirt size to large. Almost eight years ago I was 3xl and size 53 waist. The loss of 73 pounds and being in diabetic remission has paid off. It is a bit expensive to have to keep adding a new wardrobe as the sizes shrink, but it is definitely satisfying and rewarding when I can now go and find stuff almost anywhere that will fit very well. On to the next goal of under 200 pounds... Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:37:25 EST
