hi all! it is Thursday at 1030pm and I am chit chatty. I went to the dr today and I weigh 248!!! that is up 3 pounds from my low on Saturday before Christmas of 245 but in all fairness I had been terribly sick. so anyway I have lost a total of 20 pounds since being back here and I am pumped! I wish I could do some exercise-- I think if I took my own advice as I have access to a pool and would use it, I would feel great and lose a little too. I can barely walk as I have a cyst on the back of one knee which makes walking very painful but I believe the water would feel marvelous! I have talked myself into it.. I will do it tomorrow! hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as I did and I hope we all have a great new years!!!
