Thanks for the updates, Janice and Carolyn. I have been extremely busy, as my grad school classes started up again at the beginning of November and I'm hosting some short-termers until just after Christmas. I have been tracking food for the past 3 weeks. The benefit is that I haven't gained anything and am slowly creeping down, ounce by ounce. South Africa doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, but I usually find someone who is willing to eat turkey and pumpkin pie with me. emoticon

Welcome home again Janice.
John and I did take a little trip for our anniversary. We only went to Sioux City, about 100 miles away but we took the back roads which allowed John to see farmland. He grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin so needs that once in awhile. We drove through the little town where my Mom was born. We don't having any living relatives there now. Never did find the cemetery.
I've been going to TOPS meetings for years but have not been losing weight. I'm trying to figure out a new plan for that as what I am or rather I am not doing is not working. i think I'll not rejoin TOPS to save money. But also, need to figure out something else. Perhaps WW but not sure.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Hello everyone I did not drop the face of the earth but have been going in too many directions.
Sept. was a mission trip to Russia and Oct. we took a team of 12 to West Virginia for a mission trip. Both were great.
When we got back in October I decided to try Weight Watchers again. I did well on it before and they have updated their programs with more options. So far in one month I have lost almost 8lbs. My momentum has returned and I am feeling good about things.
Last week I was back to Cleveland Clinic for another check up on this weird disease they diagnosed me with in 2017. Good reports with no changes to my arteries from last year. The doctor approved for me to make a mission trip to Kenya in June. I have some recommendations. weight and cholesterol. She started me on a new statin the last one gave me some side effects. So we have to see how it works. I have some restrictions as to things I can and cannot do. Like lifting and carry my luggage. But we have team that will do that.
I hope all is well with all of you. I will read the posts so I can catch up.
Happy anniversary belated to Carolyn and John.
I will check back in a few days. My WID is Wednesday just before Thanksgiving. I am working on my meal plan for Thanksgiving so should be ready to handle it.

Thanks Julie! John is doing fine. He did pull a muscle when he fell but I think that doesn't seem to be bothering him now. We had a good anniversary trip. Just a day and a night.

John fell this morning. He just couldn't get up so I had to call 911 to have the firemen come to get him up. Getting old is no fun, especially when you have a nerve disease in your legs that makes you have foot drop and weak muscles!

Tomorrow is our third year wedding anniversary. We are going to take a two day, one night trip away. I hope John feels up to it. He pulled a muscle and has been just sitting in his recliner today.
