Hi! I am a boomer child - grew up in the late 50s and 60s. The world has changed a great deal since those days. My body has too! I'm on a weight loss journey for health reasons. My daddy died of a heart attack when I was 9 years old and my mom has had a heart attack and open-heart surgery. So I am exercising and eating healthy to protect my heart from its genetic legacy.

Hi! I am a boomer child - grew up in the late 50s and 60s. The world has changed a great deal since those days. My body has too! I'm on a weight loss journey for health reasons. My daddy died of a heart attack when I was 9 years old and my mom has had a heart attack and open-heart surgery. So I am exercising and eating healthy to protect my heart from its genetic legacy.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart. We have 3 grown and married children and 7 grandchildren, 4 girls and 3 boys. They are the light in my life.

I am a retired elementary school teacher. I tutor students during the school year now and do lots of reading.

Aww Donna,, I HOPE she comes to her senses,, now tht she know she's clearly killing herself. I DO NOT think til we saw each other today,, she realized that we KNOW she's doing this to HERSELF,, and that YES it IS Suicide !! Up til we talked yesterday she kept blaming her brewathing,, and she TRIED AGAIN yest,,, "Its cos my Mom had a hard time breathing" Well I was QUICK to say "No she didnt,, and she also SMOKED like a CHIMMEY ,, you do NOT smoke,, and 2nd hand smoke does not do what you are going thru,, you'd be on oxygen,, you are not,, and do NOT qualify for oxygen,, its from the hernia,, K,, do you know how a hernia is caused"? She looked at me,, said "its from acid reflus" "No, its from the stomach being so big,, that it needs someplace to go ,, or from so much fat around the stomach (or both) which causes the stomach to go up or down into the organs of the body. In ur case,, it has pushed it up,, and is affecting ur heart,, and also lungs,, squeezing them hard,,,, you know K as well as I do,,,, this is from over eating, and eating the wrong foods". than she just looked at me,, tried to say again,, the acid reflux,,, I have that,, I was quick with "Acid reflux is controllled again,, with the FOODS we eat,, and youve been on a Fristo's kick,,, that stuff is ALL OILY and NASTY,, of course it's hurting you. I've had a couple of them you offered,, and ONLY a couple ,, ??? why?? it hurts me,, I m NOT going to eat something that HURTS me. Remember K,, what my Dr said,, and we both have learned is TRUE,, you CRAVE what it is your often ALLERGIC or Sensitive too". She knew I was right about the entire conversation,, but, ONLY cos I've been there,,, though it affects us each in a personal way. I HOPE onna that ll help her.

She picked me up early today,,, I needed blood work (the poor girl who did my blood work,, she blew the vein,, mine are very small,, and they roll ! POOR THING she felt HORRIBLE !),,,, so Karen had to put my knee walker (GRRR CAST SOME OFF SO I CAN AGAIN WALK on foot !) ,,, she stood there after putting it into the car,, huffing and puffing away. It took her about a min,,, than she came back to the drivers side,,, sat there,, b4 starting the car,, again about a min,, could not get her breathe.

I HOPE she's HIT bottom,, I HOPE after our tak yesterday,, all of the "excuses" she gives,,,, will now be obsolete ,

THANKS SO MUCH for reading the blog.

I am doing fine with keeping up with the foods I eat. My problems continue to be what I eat. I have decided to use the meals recommended that SP provide, after modifications. I will see how that works.

How is logging your foods going? Any secrets to share? Thank you for the friend added. I have added you as a friend of mine as well.

Hello friend. How are things going for you? Are you able to keep up with the Underdogs? My accounting is a little behind, but I am working on it.
