I forgot to weigh yesterday morning so did it this morning. I finally lost 10% of my body weight. This was one of my main goals. I've slowed down considerably since the first couple of months, but I have a lot against me. My age (over 50), hugely overweight, menopause, diabetes and no gallbladder to name a few. But all progress is good regardless of how slow.

Went to Walmart and picked out new eyeglasses. They are purple Smile The frames were $25, but including the lenses (bi-focal) I spent $164.

I used the $40 gift card I got for Shell a few months ago, when I cashed in $20 of Discover points. I've been buying gas because I had $1/Gal points and was getting 5% back on my credit card until the end of Sept. Gas was $3.35/gal, so I got just under 12 gallons, but it was free.

I finished reading the library book The Ideal Man by Julie Garwood. Romance - excellent.

    That's wonderful on the weight loss. Does not having a gallbladder make it harder? I haven't have one since I was 34, but I'd never read it made weight loss harder. That might explain a few things.

    LuckyRobin - I've read several things lately that said not having a gallbladder makes it harder to lose weight, not sure why, but I think it has something to do with how you digest your food.
