Hi! I'm Karen. I'm 5'tall. 63. I weigh. 168 lbs. and live on the Olympic Peninsula.

The worst thing is that when a short person has gained 5 pounds it appears like they gained 15 pounds! I'm tired of looking like a door.

If I hardly eat any bread/potatoes, walk an hour a day or work for several hours a day in the garden, I can lose weight. I have to be strict.

4th of July plus 4 pieces of whole wheat bread with gobs of butter and raspberry jam did me in. I gained 2 lbs. this week. Several get family get-togethers coming up in the next several weeks. I'm making 2 cakes for my daughter-in-laws baby shower. Help! I'm afraid.
