I have joined the Summer 5% Challenge which will begin July 4th with the fireworks!!!. 8 weeks of inspiration towards the weight loss journey. It is a Race to Fascinating Places - Join a supportive team and let's have fun as we lose 5% of our weight, make new friends and improve our health! Starting date: July 4, 2020.

I live in Washington State, Port Angeles to be exact. It's at the start of the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and directly across the water from Victoria Canada. Beautiful place.

I have struggled with weight my whole life. More than once I''ve had to lose 30 pounds. It just kinda creeps up on ya uh?

My family includes my husband, myself and a Pomchi.

I have 3 daughters, as of Feb 2018 they all live on this side of the Puget Sound too. I have 6 grandchildren, ages 26, 22, 9 and 8, 4, and a 21 month old. Only the oldest is a boy, all the rest are girls!

My biggest wish was to live closer to my children and grandchildren again. We are the ones that moved away for 15 years. My wish came true, but it was hard won. On Oct 18, 2013 we had a house fire in our home in Lake Havasu, AZ. It took nine months of misery, RENTALS moves, and insurance adjustments but we moved into OUR home in Port Angeles, WA 7-18-2014. Nine months to the day of the fire.

Here''s to us ALL "positively" losing to our goal weight and then keeping our weight off!!

    HI Debby!! Awwww TY TY TY!!! I'm having both a colonoscopy and endoscopy on Weds. They're thinking it's bacterial, just not sure if it's stomach or bowel stuff so it'll be through. Hmmm sure do hope they do NOT use the same hose for both!! HAHAHA

    Actually and I do not admit this easily it's concerning. I've been in such pain since the 4th of June so it's been over a month. I just want it ended.

    HI Debby!! Ahhh this really WEIRD body reacted to the med. So next week the tests will hopefully give an answer. Meanwhile last night my mouth went ICKY! Saw my Dr today, thankfully it's not thrust, but she's not sure what it is. When you open your mouth for your Dr and you hear "Oh my" it's not reassuring. But I did of course, have to laugh for I had worse when I saw it!

    Technically, YES you are RIGHT!! It IS still "just one piece" HAHAHAHAHA love it!! TY TY
