    I totally understand. I hate to be hungry and it can be dangerous for me. I'm not fond of sparkpeople's tracker either. There are a lot better ones. I cook from scratch too and it is a lot of work on sparkpeople.

    Thanks for the comment on my status. I couldn't have said it better myself. I know if I am trying but the scale doesn't reflect that I totally lose my MOJO!! Glad you understand. Hope things are going well for you.

    Hi Carol, and thanks so much for commenting on my last blog. Since them I've taken up swimming down at our local univ. pool indoors of 87 degrees and does that ever feel heavenly on these joints!! I bought a 3-month membership that will put me in November and then I'll see if I still like it in winter. I try to go 2-3X/week and it's making me feel some better. Thanks for your encouragement and we can do it, because we've done it before. You are so right and I'm wishing you the best too, Girlfriend!!

    PS.....I just re-read my blog and since then, my Rheumy has advised to not walk on my arthritic feet for exercise, because of hurting them more, so that's the main reason why I've taken up swimming and I love it. I try to swim for an hour, I go back and forth with swimming or water walking/jogging. I must've swam too much yesterday with the breast stroke because my right, damaged, eroded wrist is throbbing today. I may not go tomorrow as I am planning on driving on Friday, to our daughter's for the weekend, 3 hrs. away. My hands have to be good enough for the steering wheel!

    Hugs, Karen

    Good Thursday morning to you, Carol! And yes, it feels like starting over to me too. In fact, every day's a new day and we can start afresh. We will keep plugging along! See ya! emoticon
