Welcome Midgie. I am Glenda. I am 47. Mother of four adopted - hence my other groups. One in college that makes the return trips like a boomerang and a 16 year old son still home. I am on medication for cholesterol and blood pressure. I set short term goals with my doctors help and it doesn't seem so out of reach. Good luck to you and welcome!

Hi - I'm an almost 46 yo mother of two grown sons, grandmother of 2 grand-daughters, (4 and 3) and a 19 mo grandson. I've been married 25 years. Life is crazy here for my husband and I right now, since both our sons have moved back home due to the financial crunch. Our youngest son's girlfriend and our grandson live here with him; and our grand-daughters are here often. So it's a full house! (Especially with only 3 BR and 1 Bathroom emoticon )

I'm determined, with God's help, to lose the excess weight (over 100 pounds!) that is contributing to my poor health. My cholesterol is high, though I'm not on medication for it, and I'm on Aldactone for my blood pressure. I'm also on Verapamil. My neurologist prescribed it as a preventative for my migraines; but it also lowers my blood pressure. As I wrote in my blog, I had a heart scare last weekend, and had a stress test. That was clear for blockages, but needless to say, they advised me to follow a low-salt, cardiac diet anyway.... I'm seeing my own doctor tomorrow morning to follow up.

Guess that's it. Hope to fit in here, would like to know what everyone else is doing, and hope everyone here is well!

Blessings...
Midgie
