I'm72 years young, married for 55 years to the same man (my place in heaven is reserved). We have 3 adult children who have given the best gifts I could imagine, 6 wonderful Grand-kids. We live in what we like to call gods country in the midst of the baby finger of Michigan. I have been fighting with my weight for 40 years it seems, sometimes its up, sometimes its down and every once in a while its where it should be. This go round with the weight problem stems from a fight with breast cancer in the fall of 08, the total lack of energy going through the radiation pretty much wiped me out. So I basically went to treatment then sacked out on the couch until bed time. By the end I was 157 pounds on the Dr.s scale. That was Jan. 5th, 09. In Feb I was back to the gym 3 days a week for an hour. March I joined a class 2 days a week besides the 3 days on my own. By end of April I had lost 22 pounds. now I Watch what I eat and how much to maintain that weight. And work out or walk every day I can.

    well started on the heart healthy challenge today. not much different then the way I normally work out and eat so far. But it may keep me more on track then hanging on my own.

    what ever was going on last weeks seems to be gone. And low and behold I made through the holidays without gaining weight, didn't loose any mind you but didn't gain. Yippee
