Meredith, I don't recall you being or looking overweight at all. You looked perfect for your height and bone structure. I was pretty much resembling a basketball with teeth.

I look forward to the day when I am just 15 pounds overweight. Sigh...

Thanks Jawjaw. Until 10 years ago, I had no excess weight, period. Now I'm heavier due to Tamoxifen as much as menopause.

The earth still turns and the universe goes on. I know what I was, and what I am now. 15 lbs. isn't unhealthy, it's just a little bigger.

Until 10 years ago, I didn't either...then menopause entered my life, along with two different car wrecks which almost took me out...pain meds, everything broken on my left side, and my dad getting Lewy-Body Dementia and his death, then getting laid off after 25+ years, then I quit smoking in the middle of all of it...then mom getting breast cancer in the middle of all of it...it's a wonder I don't weigh 300 pounds. Stress...it WAS my middle name.

But not anymore!

Wow! Jawjaw, the way you joke around, I never would've thought of
you as having to fight stress. But you've really, really battled
too. Well, I'm fighting the good fight. We'll see what happens.

Divine,
There's just that much more of you to love! Think of the extra
15 pounds that way! And you'll love 'em!

JJ, congrats on your hard work and lifestyle changes. I know your tickled.

Mustang, keep up the good work. I can't imagine you have only but a few pound to lose with your height and weight.

orchid, I always admire your eating and exercise routines. You deserve the occasional sweet.

Meredith, you looked great in Vegas. I can relate to you feeling okay about your weight gain. I felt fine with the five pound weight gain, making it 150, but now I'm right aroudn 160 and just don't feel great, even though all summer, I've been walking, or walking/running five mornings a week. I absolutely love getting the exercise. It feels great and I feel a boost just knowing that I'm doing something to help myself, but no weight loss. I'm working harder on my diet and hope to see some results in the next two weeks.

My problem is that we've pretty much eaten healthy due to Ross's diabetes, so how do we keep cutting/changing when we already feel as though we're doing so? My answer is to eat less. That's all I can come up with, and I don't like it one bit.

ciao, I like the trampoline idea. Sounds like a good workout.

EW, do you walk when you golf, or use a cart?

Chatty, I thought of you last week when I had Dad at the PT and he told him to do his little exercises on the commercials. Are you still marching on commercials?

Yes, I walk, even briskly, when I play golf. I've only used a cart in Spain, where everyone uses carts, because the golf courses are gigantic. Golf is def. a sport for me; up and down hills, in the bunker, outta the bunker,...in the bunker....outta the bunker, crawling on all fours looking for the ball, stooping, and going in hiding when hubby's balls zig zag across my head.
