Been trying to lose weight, well all my life, but got serious about it again in March 2007. I lost about 12 pounds, went on vacation in October and gained a few back. Got back to my pre vacation weight just before the holidays. I am now having some trouble getting back on track.

I have developed some unknown allergy problems since July 2007. I believe they have something to do with plastics or adhesives. I am allergic to my car and my laptop. I am an IT professional and have a long commute to work so this is not good at all! Update: 10/14/2008. The weird allergy is multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). This means that many chemicals make me very ill. It is extremely difficult to live with this. Chemicals are every where so its impossible to avoid them. Perfumes, colognes, any scented product including cosmetics, laundry detergent, fabric softeners, plastics, adhesives, etc., etc., etc., make me very sick. If you have this same problem check out the Multiple Chemical Sensitivity team.

On the positive side....I bought a new horse in April 2007. She is really great. She is a 2 year old Paint (the black and white horse in the picture). I am training her myself and so far she is doing really good. I have been riding and training horses for many years, but do not do it professionally. Update: 10/14/2008. My Paint is now 3 1/2 years old and doing really well. I took her to her first dressage show a week ago. She did really well.

    Hi from the past.
    I have had a great summer with our grandkids, I had honestly forgotten we share the same ideas on being green
    I was able to stick to our eating plan. I do all of the cooking. Avoid processed and chemiicals. It was a little more difficult with the kids but they did learn a lot from me this summer. Nutrition, manners and respect for the planet they have always had. Anyway I did drop by on my mission,Please see my blog.

    TODAY, I blogged from my HEART! emoticon

    I was trying to stay "clean" without SP, but I know now that the interaction with all of you is what I need. I don't want to undo all the progress I made. My new clothing started to fit a bit snug, so I am back on the wagon! I have been riding all summer and business is doing so well. emoticon

    I am back from Hawaii and there is an additional 11 pounds of me. I decided not to restrict myself on the cruise, so now I have to start being healthy again. It was a great 30th anniversary trip. emoticon

    Happy April! Well, the holiday is over and I have to get back on the program. All my food is weighed out and I am riding Duke as much as I can. He is looking better, hair is almost off and his muscles are coming back. So are mine. I am sore, maybe he is too.

    What a team ... fat lady, fat horse, both out of shape. We have no where to go but UP! emoticon
