Had a very good check up at the doctor.

I have to have some tests, but otherwise I'm doing Jim-dandy. I'm going to start swimming three times a week on October 16th. I found the place I want to join. It's an outdoor pool, but the temperatures stay at 80-84 degrees all fall and winter. December they close for three weeks near Christmas to fix the place up and make sure everything is going well. I'm excited. My friend K.C. is going to meet me there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we'll work out together. She's trying to lose weight too. :) My doc said if I could lose 30 pounds, it would be awesome. So I'll shoot for that right now and see how it goes. She also said lose the carbs that I eat every day. What???? Carbs? Holy Moley. Everything has carbs. I'm Italian for crying out loud. What would my grand-mother say about that? LOL It's going to be a fun month I think. I Love to swim and do water aerobics.. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend. Tomorrow is Friday. Yay!!!! Be well, everyone.

Hugs, Patt

Hope everything goes according to plan.

I could do with losing a lot more than 30 pounds... what I need to do, really, is cut out chocolate (Oh, horror!). Or stop eating altogether, then once I'm at the weight I want to be, go back to eating maybe two days a week. I go out walking pretty well every day (except when it's chucking down rain) so I am getting exercise. Okay, it's not the mileage I used to cover, but it is exercise :-)

I"m going to go for short walks to start with and swimming three days a week. Then once I'm used to it, five days a week. I can't wait. I love swimming more than anything.

My goal is to lose 60-70 pounds. Then I will be very happy. So will my poor back.

My doctor wants me to ditch the carbs as well. Like you, I'm Italian. How the heck do we manage that?

Good luck, Patt! I'll be rooting for you!

I've got two weeks to live it up, Tinn. Then the tough work comes into play. LOL

Thank you, Grey. It's going to be a life long one for me too. But, as I get used to it, it should come easier. Right? Geeze, I hope so.

Many hugs back at you. I start the diet and exercise in two weeks. We're going on holiday and I refuse to diet while there. I will be getting exercise though. Woot.
