Barbara, even though you have probably gone crazy with the company, I envy you. I fit myself in to my daughter's family for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it! (I'm not sure how they felt about it, lol)

Routine for the day, Christmas is 2 days away, so I am busy baking and wrapping!

My daughter, SIL and grandson have been here since the day vefore THanksgiving, so it has been crazy. They leave the week after CHristmas and I am sleeping for the month of January. Despite crazy eating, I am not unhappy with weight. I need to lose more but I am not beating myself up until after they leave.

Frannie, I too have HBP and high cholesterol, both controlled with meds. About half my family has them, so I guess I drew that number. Half has diabetes too, but I am hoping to keep that at bay as long as I can with smart eating and exercise.

Back from a wonderful trip to see the grandkids! I haven't seen them in over a year, I hate that they live so far away. They are veggie eaters (lots, but not exclusively), so I managed to drop my 2 pounds to reach my goal while I was there! And another one off the next day!

My next target is Valentine's Day, just because it is a date on the calendar, but I am aiming for 10 lbs down by then. Hope winter doesn't get in my way for that one!

Nancy, HBP runs in my family as does high cholesterol, my mom ate better than anyone I knew, kept her weight down and was generally very healthy and she had both so it is just something I accept now. I am hoping it will be good now! I always joked that it was the hill billy stock I came from, they had to work very hard all their lives so high cholesterol was necessary for fuel, I work behind a desk so not so much.

Another gray day but at least it is not raining! I am going to try to get a walk in today and then do some closet cleaning.

Frannie - I hope med number 4 is the MIRACLE drug - On the positive side, at least they now have 4 and even MORE drugs that might all bring the relief you need. At one time, you would have had no real options. I am hoping to keep my BP under control with healthier eating and exercise, but will try the various options IF I need to until I find what works for me too.

Hi all, I went to the Dr Wednesday, she is trying to get my BP regulated. The medication I had been taking for years started causing a very bad cough so I had to change, I am on med #4 now in the hopes that it will work. So frustrating! On the plus side I did not gain any weight over the Thanksgiving holiday and that is good! Hopefully I will be able to continue that throughout the holiday season.

I hope you all are having a good week and have a wonderful weekend, I am so very glad it is Friday! The weekend is supposed to be a little warmer, it hasn't been too bad this week so I have been able to get my walking in most days. I am not sure what I am going to do if this winter is as cold and snowy as last winter.

Happy December and all that goes with it!

Routine in. Goal is to lose 5 by the end of the month. I think I can do it. Just needs support, concentration, and strength!

Happy December 1st - it starts a new week, a new day and best of all a new MONTH and comes to the end of the old year as well. I started off on a positive note and am making progress moving forward. I am mostly working on keeping myself from gaining in December and maybe losing just a little bit too. Focusing on the positive and planning for a great month.
