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.

    Oh Yeah We got snow!!!! Ended up with 22". though in spots, like the back door and garage door had drifts from 36" to 44". We haven't had this much snow from one storm since 1979. Though we had winter of 1994 many snow falls from 2" to 6" or 8" that never melted. It started on Christmas Eve and snowed on and off till end of March. None of it melted and we ended up with 27" that winter. New England , just gotta love it!
    Well you have yourself a Happy Holiday and God Bless. emoticon emoticon

    Haha, snow is indeed a fact of life in the winter, but two feet of it is a different story! When we get three inches in my area, people freak out and everything closes. With two feet down outside, I'm sure things will stay shut down for days!
