Hi Everyone,

Hi McSurf, GlaRose, Canadjineh, Robin, WELCOME! Glad you are joining us. Looking forward to getting to know you.

My DD is trying to get me to do a 10K in April (about 6 miles). I might just do it. Started training this morning – did 1.5 miles in 32 minutes. Need to pick up the pace. Not sure if I will continue with this or not – depends on how my knees handle it.

Supposed to snow here tomorrow – I hope it holds off until after our Book Club meeting. Am reading a good book you might like – Lydia’s Party – about an annual party & the women (moving from middle age to old age) who attend.

Have a GREAT day!

I am anticipating mucho discomfort but less would be nice. DH said I should get one of those floor pedal things and I already have one. Inch by inch things are getting organized.
Hi Karen,

When I had my hip surgery, doctors gave me pre-surgery exercises to do. They REALLY helped me to recover quickly. After the surgery, I could see the purpose of the exercises – they were strengthening the muscles I would need to use until my hip had healed. Happy to hear about the newest treatment – I might still need to follow in your footsteps with this.

I am trying to honor the request not to be so negative and bring others down, so that is how I end up talking about her so much.
Lynn ~ sorry that you ended up with a gain. Your classes are almost over now ~ will you get a break, or do you have another one lined up that will start soon?
Hi Gayle,
You could never “go on too much about Maddie.” If I remember correctly, Maddie and I have the same birthday. I do not have any GC, so I must get my enjoyment vicariously. Please do not stop Maddie stories.

You posted “I am trying to honor the request not to be so negative and bring others down…” If this came from someone in our group, I am REALLY sorry. We have always been able to “cry on each others’ shoulders.” This is our safe place – where we can whine, or complain, or vent without being criticized. If I were you, I would ignore this TERRIBLE advice!

My 1 class ended last weekend & the other one ends tomorrow. I will NOT be teaching any more in the near future – taking my laptop in to get the malware off it & going down to FL on the 11th for 2 weeks with my DD & SIL.

Hi Donna, Hopefully, I can attach my “under-cover cat.” Harry (Samson’s look-alike) also loves to snuggle under the covers.

Hoping they don't find any surprises and they are able to get the gall stones without any complications. If they do find a growth they will do a biopsy at the same time.
Hi Karen, My best wishes to you and Tim. Hopefully, they will not find anything & recovery will be quick.

Hi Mary,
I have also been having trouble in the evenings. I tried to think of something I could eat at night with a cup of tea – something not too high in calories & something I would NOT be likely to binge on. I bought a pkg of Stella Doro “cookies” (to me, more like biscotti than cookies). Each is 65 cals & 10 g of carbs. I will let you know if it works.

Hi Rosey,

I do watch the show, but did not see that episode. Last episode I saw was the one about the man who did not work or help around the house & wife left him. What do you think about that doctor? Do you think he gives his patients helpful dieting advice?
