Hi, my name is Issie and my cc name is busyissie. I'm fine with Issie when people are addressing me. I am 52 years young and female. I have heard some men called Issie so my name isn't obviously female. I live in California (it is hot as H..... here today almost 110 where I'm at) and I am happily married with two grown kids. My daughter has already moved out and my son is still at home.  I think he'll be here forever! But I'm fine with that. I also have pets, 3 dogs and a cat. They are great company. My husband works a lot and my pets are great companions and great exercise friends. Not sure that I have a favorite color but I don't like brilliant colors, I prefer to stick to the basic colors.

I love Mystic Pizza. Whenever I see  it  playing on TV I make time to watch it. I'm a gardener and love my roses and other flowering plants. (I had to get out early this morning to water because of the expected heat today). Dogs also got out and ran around before the heat settled in.

Food? I love everything! Popcorn, grapes, non fat Black Cherry Frozen Yogurt, nonfat jello with nonfat cool whip. Carrots will serve in a pinch. I prefer to drink water but on occasion I'll have ice tea and diet coke.

Do I have an obstacle in getting healthy? Maybe my appetite. That is why I am here. I have gained over 40 pounds since I got married 29 years ago! I hope to lose the weight by next year. Maybe not all of it but at least 30 pounds. I also would like to get off of the cholesterol pills.

I don't mind chores but if I would have to choose it has to be cleaning the toilet bowl. Yuk!

I was a member of another diet site with a similar name as Calorie Count. My membership is due to expire and I wasn't happy with the forums. They seemed very clicky to me so I decided to give this one a try. I like this site and I hope that I can loose my weight with the support of this group. It was nice meeting some of you.
Oh, haha, didn't do this when I first arrived...

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
