Dancin' and Living Joyfully These Days and A LOT Lighter : )

Cindy Update!!! Thirty-seven pounds GONE!!! Soon to be FIFTY. : ) I've also been learning some interesting things of late. One thing I've learned about is the prevalence of vitamin B-12 deficiency, especially in older folks and those who, like me, have diabetes and are taking metformin. I have me bloodwork order to test for vitamin B-12 deficiency and I urge all of you to get tested to check for Vitamin B-12 deficiency.
I'm also reading a great book called "Stop Aging, Start Living", and you don't have to be middle-aged or older to get and read this book and to incorporate at least some of the suggestions into one's daily life.
Let's see, what else...my doctor was really impressed with me when I saw her and I am so thrilled. My A1C was 5.6!! It was 7 when I was diagnosed with diabetes at the beginning of the year. Go me, go me, go me............: )
Oh, also, I colored my hair this past Sunday and it is now a VERY dark brown. NO grey anywhere. : ) I don't know if I've told you that my hair is very long--a little bit past my waist. I'm going this Sat. am to have it at least trimmed and I might get a bit more than that done. Still looking at hairstyles. : )
Well, I'm going to go back to looking at nail polish colors. Man, I am having FUN.
Yeah, I'm SOLID, SOLID as a rock. : ) Song playing on radio. : )

Wonderful Day AND Thirty-THREE pounds GONE!

Yes, indeed! I broke through that plateau! See me dancin'? (BTW, I love to dance, but hubby doesn't want to. : ( ). I had to cut my food/drink intake a bit more to do it, but I did it. : ) Soon I'll have 40 gone. That is going to be a huge achievement.
I got thru the bloodwork okay earlier and I really hope my numbers are doing great.
It's a great day today. I bought a copy of 'Simple Abundance' and started reading it. I read some of it years ago and just feel like I want to get into it again.
The Hollow is absolutely GORGEOUS today.
