Men are from Mars...men are from mars....

Weight has never really been an issue for me. I had a bit of trouble when I was 39 because they discovered my thyroid didn't work. But after several months of dosage adjustments, they finally got it right with the synthoid, I shed the extra weight and all was good with the world again. I was comfortable with my weight and wore a size 6. Not bad for a 40 year old that had 3 kids!

I then went back to my normal eating though that was never a lot but again, I didn't have to worry. Then in May of 2007 I quit smoking and I started the wonderful world of menopause....lovely. And no matter if I watched my weight or not, the pounds came on, made themselves comfortable and stayed!!

And I have tried to lose them, misplace them and shame them away but they might just be here to stay. But ever so often, I work on it.

Johnny boy has also gained a little......I mean we are all getting a little older and metabolism slows down...right?

But he decides he should lose some pounds. So he tells me instead of eating peanuts when he gets home and ice cream after supper, he's going to eat grapes. OK...not sure that will do much.

And after one day, Johnny boy tells me he lost a lb. Then the next day...2 lbs. Another day, another lb....and so on. Until Sat night and we went out to Casa Grande...he gained a few back. But it's ok, no peanuts and ice cream and hey, he's lost some more! Just makes me sick......I told him if I did that, hell, I would gain weight!!

why can men lose weight so easy and it's just so hard for women!! We have so many other things what with giving birth and all that and then that wonderful world of menopause......you would think God would have given us a break and let us be the ones to lose weight so easily. But then again God made it where those men treat us like Queens......guess that's the trade off

later......
