I'm 45, celebrating my 29th anniversary in 5 days! My husband is awesome, supportive in every way! I have 2 grown boys, 25 and 28, with 3 grandchildren, 2 girls and a boy--and they are a handful LOL! I live 1/2 mile from Lake Texoma on the Oklahoma side. We moved here in 2006 and I love it!

Ummm, what else? I was born in Fort Worth, TX and spent most my youth in Weatherford (TX)...after I got married, we moved around a bit - spent some time in Plano, Dallas, Richardson, then back to Fort Worth for about 7 years.

I have a very close-knit group of family and friends that I don't know what I'd do without--we like to hang out around the bonfire at the beach! It's not unusual for me to have 10+ people staying at my 1 bedroom house LOL!

Finally, I have a few health issues; I've been disabled since 2005 with pbc, fibromyalgia, ra, lupus and chronic might find me here at 3 in the afternoon just as often as you see me at 3 in the morning!

Rehad Diet book
Wow Mike! That's awesome! I've recently decided that I needed to cut out the "bad" carbs so I'm following the Atkins diet. So far, so good!

Lunch out today
What's wrong with their Ranch? Pretty sure they have an Italian dressing too. Both those are approved as long as they don't go above 2 nc. Subway is pretty much my go-to place to eat if I'm out and about. Do you have some other places in mind?

Share your tips for getting the water in!

For those who don't like the taste of water, my point-blank suggestion is to get over it. (Sorry to be blunt, but you are an adult) I am not directing this at anyone individual - just all those who can't stand water.) Dehydration usually = water retention = weight gain on the scale).

Well said NCNOLE! As soon as I get up, I fill up my 24 oz cup with tap water--as long as I have at least 3 of those a day, I'm good. Since I drink a full glass before each meal, I'm pretty much golden LOL! It helps curb my appetite too which is a bonus. Very Happy
