Well my goal of 2 lbs per month is a good one, however, earlier I stated I wanted to lose 5 lbs and keep them off. Hmmm... wonder how this will work out? I am hoping for the former not the later, but will take the later if that is what is to be. Better to have lost 5 lbs and kept them off then 12 lbs and gained back all the time.

I feel really rotten today. My cold is at it worst and all I want to do is go back to bed, and that is what I am going to do. I did my tracking for the day and I will make dinner and I have a load of wash done, but I am done in and it is only 12 noon!

Exercise is not even an option today or this week until I am feeling better. I will try to get to the pool 3 times per week and walk 2 times per week. Post Polio Syndrome mandates I take things very easy and that is okay.

    What is the old adage, "Starve a cold and feed a fever." I don't know where that comes from but I hope you are better soon. As for me I can't taste anything when I have a cold and my activity is usually down; so I am not hungery any way. Another adage "if you don't take medications your cold will last 7 days; if you do, it will last about a week.." Get well soon!

    I know how you feel and I've been sick for a week as well and unable to exercise. My biggest loser competition has taken a back seat until I feel better although I"m not eating as much so that is a good thing. We can do this!

    Stay well. I like your comments on goals. Goal setting is a passion of mine, as many of my blogs attest to. Keep trucking.
