Kimmie, I hope you are getting well soon. Having back pains is terrible and affects everything you do. Take care of yourself.

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

Now that I can't go to work for a few days maybe I can get caught up on my message boards. I just got a new goal since my degenerating dist has flared up. I Need to lose weight for this surgery. I have been able to do 3 yrs with out and would love to go at least a few more years but for as much pain I am in I think it might be time to get this done. So my goal is to loose as much weight as possible before the surgery. I really need to be a little more healthier. New that my son is all delt with now It's my turn to stay healthy for my kids and grand kids.

I don't have any New Year's resolutions. There is nothing to resolve-lol, My New Year's intentions are to live healthier, avoid unwanted or needed stress, not care about things that are unworthy of my care or dont mean much, to show more empathy towards humankind and some volunteering somewhere.

Yes, Kinder Schokolade is very poopular. It wasn't yet when I lived there, so that is not one thing I miss. We have a couple of German Delis in this area and the commissaries carry a lot of German items also. I usually don't buy much of them because they are just too expensive. I have never received any "care" packages from Germany. The only relatives I have left over there is one aunt, my mom's 95 year old sister, who is bedridden now. Several cousins and their families. I am still close with my cousins but their kids and families are strangers to me.

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

My "Oma" from Berlin sends over candy every year at Christmas time. My favorite is Kinder Schokolade- I think that's what it's called. MMMmmm....I could eat that all day long!

I haven't made any New Year's resolutions either, but I really want to get back on the band wagon again.

I didn't have the heart to throw out my Christmas sweets. That is the only time of the year when I splurge on German Christmas cookies and other sweets that I grew up on. I always fix a nice sized container for my kids and give it to them on Christmas Eve. There is usually more than enough for us and I try to ration the amount I eat. I even entered all the calories and other information on the food tracker. Since I weigh my food, rather than counting or measuring it by cups, spoons etc. it is very easy for me to track. My "favorites" list is quite large.

Anyway, I think I will try to lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week. I am going with the low amount because I don't want to set myself up for failure. My left knee is really bad right now and therefore I am still not exercising. Being on my feet all day long is exercise enough at the moment.

I want to get to my goal weight by mid-year (30-35 more pounds to go!). I don't really make New Year's Resolutions, but I did throw out all holiday cookies and sweets a couple of days ago! I had started drinking soda again in December since that's all everyone ever had at get-togethers that I went to, so I'm weaning myself from that again... lol. As soon as I cut out the soda, I'll be eating good again, so all I need to do is continue that and exercise and I'll be at goal before I know it (or so I hope!!).
