I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in March. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I wished, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 1.5 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the next 2-3 weeks pending my mom's health after her fall last March, breaking an arm and leg. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.

After a very long plateau, I have made my 1st long term goal of 100# lost on 3/20/16. 1# added to the loss this week. The plateau is broken and now onto a small goal of 17# (no date to meet).

I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    We are having really nice summer days. The pool is 80 degrees and I am getting sunburned.
    I will have our son about that. He is not very easy to get to him but I must ask him how cold or wet is this time of his year.
    Thanks JAMER I thought it would be just like ours so I really appreciate making that comment.

    Eileen I know what you mean about the weather being the same but different. The humidity here doesn't get as high as Mn. does but add the higher heat. Lucky that there has been some good winds which helps. I really think Mn. summers can be brutal when the humidity gets in the high 90's with the temp matching-- that can be unbearable. I just sort of laugh when they say high humidity coming ya mid 70's , much better than high 90's or 100 % humidity you get. Remember it well, however that is always the beginning of rain storms and tornados popping up there. Glad you got your computer back working well.
