My name is Dotty and I am 69 yrs old. I am a Mom, Grandma and now a Great Grandma. I retired early due to health problems and cortisone Meds have caused me to gain way too much weight. Now I need to get rid of it. I hope this program and diet will help .....I have never needed or been on a diet here goes....With God's help and my obedience this can be and will be done.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose at least 46 lbs of this 181lbs. Not only for health reasons but also for my family. I want to be here to watch all of my grandchildren and now 4 great grandchildren grow up.

My Program:
I watch my diet closely and try to get lots of fiber and low fat...It is hard for me to get enough calories though for the day. I work out at home on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays...but am not too regular about it...Need to get firmer on my self.

Personal Information:
I am 69 years old, happily married with two grown daughters, two grown granddaughters and two not so grown grandsons. I now am blessed with a great granddaughter and three great grandsons.. I am a born again christian and believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and also believe in once saved always saved. My name is etched in the palm of His hand...and cannot be erased......PTL

Other Information:
My favorite book is the Bible. I love doing cross word puzzles and reading my Kindle. My oldest Granddaughter, Tamra and her husband are in S Korea. Her hubby, Javoris is in the army and they have two sons ages 6 and 7. My other granddaughter, Shelly, has a little girl, Alysia, who is 10 years old. Alysia is my first Great Grandchild. God is so good to us and has blessed our family abundantly. My oldest Grand son Mike has a son who is 3 years old.

    Hi Dotty.. It's alright I'm sorry I didn't know you didn't have txting on your cell. Several? lol just 2... Don't feel pressured to give me your new # it's all up to you o.k. Well, as for me I've been feeling better, still in pain but not as bad as I was. I hope this yr. is better for me I went thru so much last yr. I still can't workout all week like I want to but I do the days I can which isn't much only 3 days the most and just walking. Today I was able to jog 3 mls. I was so happy for that I want to get back into my joggs I felt good when I was doing them. Yea... I'd seen you're ticker moved a bit ;-) that's good. I gained a few pounds not able to workout and then the Holidays ugh... I'm in 129 right now BUT! I know I can lose them I just need to workout. I feel pretty good today so hopefully that will stay like that for me to be able to workout and lose this wt. I gained. Well, my Dear Friend got to go take care. Say hi to mom and ur hubby o.k. Take care.. ((((Hugs))))

    Thanks for all your comments on my pictures. My email is down, so I haven't been able to see any email since our return.

    Let me try to answer your questions...raclette is melted cheese which is served over boiled potatoes, and you're right...that's meat on the top of the grill. I bought the same grill for myself as a Christmas present. I had raclette the first time I was in Switzerland. The little baked breads that look like little gingerbread men are good too. The tree in Switzerland was REALLY tall...I'm not good at estimating, though. JUST HUGE!

    Charlie and I had a wonderful time in Scotland. Glad you enjoyed those pictures too. It was cold, but when we got chilled, we went into a pub...Charlie had a beer and I had a mulled wine or capucchino. Boy, did we the end of each day, our legs were so sore! But it's a trip we'll always remember!

    Hi Sweet Lady of mine... I was just reading my blogs and saw you had comment in the one I posted reguarding adjusting to my meds. You know.. no I haven't told my Dr. I lost all that wt. when I started seeing this Dr. I had already lost most of the wt. I was probably in my last few pounds. Well, he is trying to help me on this but as of yet no luck. I'll ask him about my wt. loss next time I see him it'll be in 2 wks. Thx Dotty for your concern. Luv ya! Hugs....
