GOOD MORNING MAGNOLIAS
I want to wish you all a very Happy Easter. Enjoy your day and I hope, also, that the weather cooperates.
We are going to DD#3 for the holiday and all local offspring are supposed to be there as well. Should be fun and loud with 7 kids and 1 teenager, if he shows up. You know teenagers....can't expect them to cut into their schedule just for a holiday!!!
Got the results of my mamogram and bone density tests. Mamogram was fine, thank God but the bone density test showed Osteopenia! Had to look it up and found it is the onset of osteoporosis! Went to Dr and was given a prescription for Fosamax! He said the treatment is the same for both and the Fosamax is supposed to slow down the bone thinning. May even rebuild but he could not promise that. Got to take it once a week....on an empty stomach with lots of water and stay erect for 1/2 hour. After that 1/2 hour I can eat and take my other meds. Going to be fun but glad it's not more than once a week. Had two falls this past year with no breaks so I guess I will have to be more careful. Tuff to get old but I guess it is better than the alternative.
I was also told that I had to be more active....duh!! This week I was able to walk 3 times for 1/2 hour each time. Twice I walked out side the mall. I don't like the sidewalks but I think with the weather getting better I will have to try and just be careful where I walk.
I never do follow up on those chains as when I did I never recieved anything.
Of course, that is what your body will do....loose one week and retain the next. Just keep up the good work and it will start being more of a consistant loss. Actually I dropped a lb. this week....maybe the walking! Hope! Hope! Hope!
Have you left for Vegas yet? Hope you have a great time there and enjoy the wedding.
Gloria in MA....DH is due back any minute and I need to get ready for another walk.
