Grateful to be At Goal..Again

I lost 33 pounds in 1970 on the old old old Weight Watchers Plan, arriving at my doctor selected goal of 114 in 5 months. Had a few years at an even lower weight due to illness, then got back up to goal and stayed there until the menopause 6 snuck in from the air. (Never from Cheetos or Reeses!) Got serious, lost the 6, and am keeping it off, and then another 9 pounds.

Thanks for commenting on my blog -- I really liked your idea of only have one non-negotiable in your life. Simple (but not easy).

Thanks for stopping by today! I've always thought that was a great idea - to delay acting on a craving. I get into the most trouble when I act impulsively.

Hi Nell,
Thanks for your support on my blogs! As for the lung damage, the CT scan showed a previous granulomatous disease along with patches of inflammation from the bronchitis that I had. The infection appears to be gone due to high doses of antibiotics but I have be left with severe inflammation and a wicked cough. The previous granulomatous disease needs further study to find out if it is an autoimmune disease or scar tissue for a severe fungal infection that I picked up as a child for the Ohio River Valley and the mid Atlantic states where I lived for forty years. I am fervently praying that is the case because the development of more recent autoimmune diseases is very serious businesses. There are about 137 different kinds that it could be. Several are mild which wouldn't be too bad but others are severs and can cause deadly complications. That is the type that I pray that I do not have. Thanks for all of your support. It means everything to me when I am feeling so isolated.

I was thinking the same thing last night as I was sweating. We have a ceiling fan, but it wasn't doing any good. I went down to our game room where it not only was cooler, but DH had bought a fan. Fell asleep on the couch and didn't wake up until the alarm went off. I broke down and bought a fan and I think the humidity is lower.
What is going on with your water heater? It's always something when you own a home.
