Now That I'm Fifty...

For women, once we turn 40, it's time for mammograms but once you turn 50, it's time for a colonscopy! 

And I've been having some issues that my doctor said it was time to have a colonoscopy.

If you've never had a colonoscopy - it's a piece of cake and nothing to be worried about. 
That is except for prepping for the procedure.  They tell you to stay home and be near the bathroom - they really need to say - plan on living in your bathroom for at least 4 hours and bring something to read!

After some research on the internet - the plain and simple truth is - I'm overweight! 
For the past three weeks, DH and I have been reducing our food intake and making healthier choices.

But can you believe that when I did the cleansing  - I gained 4 pounds!

Was this TMI (too much information?)
Sorry kids if you're reading this!

I just went to your profile to see if you looked overweight - if you are - you don't look it.

While I was there, I noticed that you are a collections manager. I made me smile. I worked in Student Loan Collections at one time in my working career.

You are so funny! This info is good to know! I just turned 42 and there are lots of things about your 40's that no one tells you how things just don't work the same! lol! Angie xo
