I had reached a goal weight of 180, had a succession of surgeries (shoulder/arm, abdominal wall, back), started weight lifting again, raised my goal weight to 185. Then I had new problems with my other shoulder/arm, and back, and had to stop weight lifting and some other exercises. I've lowered my goal weight again to 180, and am adjusting to the new required caorie budget reduction -- especially sinve much exercise is off the table, again.

Thanks for the Goodie! Doing my best to get in the exercise. I will be seeing a pain management specialist in a couple of weeks and, hopefully, will get the go ahead to do more than stretches in addition to mowing, cleaning, gardening and all that good stuff.

I don't always comment on your blogs, but sure do enjoy them! Thanks for some giggles, some food for thought and lots of inspiration!
