Yes, Cyn....glad to see you are able to join us again.

Thanks Beth and Jana...

Yes, I have been busy. I have been dieting a lot.. and using the gym as much as I can. That is with one bad shoulder, elbow and knee... all on the same side...ouchey..

I did lose 20 lbs by eating mostly salads... am taking a break from it all for a few weeks. I am getting antsy, now. Feeling the gym in my near this week.

I have been really busy helping out with the Humane Society, and being a member of the Church's social committee. We are having a big bash to celebrate the Church's 110th anniversary..

Also had car issues.. my car was rear ended in a hit and run while I was parked and sitting in it!! New bumper needed, with a lot of damage underneath..

all taken care of.. so now, back to normal...

Good Grief! If it weren't for bad luck you'd have NO luck at all!

But it sounds like you've got your head on straight so, hopefully, your luck is now changing for the good. Good job on dropping 20 pounds ~ unfortunately, I think you sent a few of those to me......but at my age I refuse to acknowledge the additional weight ~ out of sight (I keep bumping into the furniture because my eyes are closed all the time) out of mind. LOL

Yup, I always have bad luck... but... it will be ok....

forgot to mention that I am also going to be one of the "helpers", officially named "inspector" during the election, both the state primary and the main one.. I had to attend a training session and take a test..

yeah, I found out that I have lost the weight, my bp went down considerably to 111/74, my total cholesterol went down 30 points, the blood sugar went down 7 points. My electrolytes were a bit wonky, so doctor wanted me to eliminate the fluid pill. I am also cutting down on another pill...

I have switched from coffee to green tea... no added salt or sugar.. so I guess I have been eating healthier.. boring but healthier..

I finally splurged last week. I had to have a couple of ice creams.. a small and yesterday a medium vanilla soft good.

Thought it would be interesting and be another way to get me into 'trouble."....

Wonderful to see you again, Cyn. Congrats on your weight loss and all the good health the weight loss has given you.

Sorry about any hardships that have come your way but you sound really good!

Good to see you back here Cyn.. and congrats with your 20 lbs less.. I'm still trying to lose some lbs.. even 5 or 6 lbs and I'd be very happy

thank you for the welcome! I appreciate it!

I am planning on returning to the gym, at the beginning of the new month.. It is only a few days away.

I cheated again and had a medium chocolate chip ice cream for lunch/supper... just now had a bunch of popcorn..
