Book I just received and have started to read. One short phrase has already stuck out:
"persist & be patient"

...and now we have arrived at the month of May.

Cheers to all of us who refuse to quit even though it sometimes seems hopeless. I wish I would remember my hard-fought workouts when I eat that first morsel of food I don't need, not after I swallow the last.

So sorry for your frustration, Barbara. I totally feel what you're saying. I'm walking in that place as well. Only I have a good ("bad") 40#'s to cut loose of... 20#'s just to get out of the OBESE category.

Here's a link to something that is about giving HOPE for improvement / change in the right direction.

I'm going to work w/ an acupuncturist to use herbs to balance my hormones. Also, I'm trying out intermittent fasting to see if I can get my body to BURN fat.
* Keep me posted as to how you're feeling. Part of the battle is in our minds--because EVERYTHING connects to everything else!

Wishing you the best in this journey towards better health and fitness!

I'm not sure exactly where my disconnect is, but I just can't get the scale to go down. I exercise regularly, and try to eat well. I think that what seems like a reasonable diet is no longer at my age. But when I try to eat much less, I end up binging after a few days because I feel deprived. I have got to get this working right!

Had a brief power outage last night--less than 30 minutes--but I was reduced to knitting by candlelight because there was nothing else to do!! Thank goodness, the power came back on!

DD came down w/ the flu...fever & body aches, pains, etc. Pretty much feeling down & out.. She should be staying home until fever breaks, but her college professor refuses to give her an excused absence when she emailed her condition. Kind of really ticks me off. I send my kid out the door to spread her "bug" because there's no allowance for illness!?! Go figure! -- She's not even safe to drive due to dizziness. But she's worried about her grade in the class. With no make-up offered for a class discussion, she will have to show up.

I should have walked today. Quilted instead. I have 3 sets to take to Quilting Group on Thursday!

Yes, the pollen has been crazy but the flowers on trees, shrubs, and other plants have been beautiful!

We've had an ongoing MIX of weather; but more heat than I'd prefer. Way too early for 80's. Missed my walks yesterday & today. Didn't make it out between showers & hail. Should do better this coming week!

Hi I just joined the team. Turn the big 50 the end of June.
We have been enjoying some unseasonably warm weather...more like summer here
And the pollen has been awful. Recent rain has helped :).
Off to get in a morning walk with hubby in a few. Have a happy day

Time to have a conversation, eh?! Here it is the 5th & tax day is less than 2 wks away. emoticon
I've walked 4 out of 5 days so far this month, so that's a positive. I'm aiming for 50 miles in April, so will have to walk more than 10 miles per week!

We have a couple of unseasonal HOT days coming up (80's). Then there's SNOW along a good portion of the East coast. Go figure??!
