You see, I suffer from the men's disease "Noasitol".

The primary warning sign is a constant hitching up of the britches as they yield to the pull of gravity.

If you constantly have the sensation of a reverse snuggie you just may have noasitol.
I didn't realize it had a name! And it's not just men, I, too, have Noasitol. Thanks, Jeff, for putting a name to the, uh, not the face.

Not face, but cheeks.

My exercise is strictly monitored by Cardiac rehab...it is still too cold for me to be riding a bike, too much ice still on the roads, too. I have a recumbent bike in the living room, I use that at least once a week for aerobic and cardiac. I don't swim, not that I can't, I don't. I haven't been in a swimsuit in over 20 years.

Now to maintain that.... but it sure feels good to get under that 200 mark.

For everyone else who is struggling with their weight goals right now I commend you, cheer you on and say "if I can do it, anyone can". I am in no way gloating. This is hard and 2 pounds under does not mean I am in the clear, but it is a nice start!

That is fantastic news!!!! Well done
Gloat away, you deserve too!!!!

My weight seems to have stabilized at my goal weight. Lost all I wanted and needed too. Not going to put my weight in Bold Purple, I might get a whack on this thread since it only took me a week.
I feel great though. No shortness of breath or chest pains anymore and I've got my energy back :)

Congratulations Laurie! I hope it continues for you!

I just came from my routine checkup.

I have been following a low carb eating plan since the first of the year and it is showing some good results.

The evil scale showed a 20 pound drop and my A1C is down to 6.3!

Now about that exercise!

That is great! Start slow with the exercise. It will be easier because of the weight loss! Congrats!

Thanks!

I am starting the exercise as slow as possible!

You are probably too young to remember Don McNeill's Breakfast Club.

All you breakfast clubbers line up and march, once around the breakfast table!

Maybe tomorrow morning!

Addie,

Have just read your entry about your daughter. I don't know the full story but I know how you must feel as my family feel the same for me. I was diagnosed with colon cancer 3 yrs ago and have since had 3 more operations for metastasis in my liver where they removed more than half. I had 6 months chemo and radiotherapy. Its hard going for my checkups and the anxiety is tremendous, but the hospital keeps me very much under control. Fortunately where we live the hospital has an excellent reputation for cancer care.
My sister in law had a brain tumor which was operated on and although recovery is still on going she came well out of it. Have courage and most of all faith and positiveness. I wish you both all the best.
