Things are moving in the right direction again. I lost 4.4 lbs this week !!! I think that watching my salt intake was what did the trick.

On the earthquake front. Things are still rocking and rolling here. We had a 4.7 late Friday night, which caused damage to homes, businesses, etc, that were near the epicenter.

We were about 6 miles away from the ground zero. No damage, but the house shook and objects rattled. There was a 3.7 about 3/4 of an hour later, that gave the bed a good sharp shake. One of the dogs was at the foot of the bed. She scuttled up to the top rather quickly and both dogs spent the rest of the night huddled around my head.

Poor things were pretty freaked out all Saturday. They were not happy about letting me out of their sight and followed me around all day. They seem to have settled down a bit this morning, as they are both curled up on the couch, while I am across the room on the computer.

Looking at the list of overnight quakes, they do seem to be getting less frequent, Hopefully that means that this particular swarm is coming to an end. The scientists have been warning that an even bigger one may be coming. Fingers crossed that this will not be the case.

Interesting that Mexico City has also experienced an earthquake this weekend.

Hi Karen,

I'm so happy to see you are indeed moving in the right direction again, congratulations! I too had a little bump in the road for two weeks (so you did better than me in turning it around), but with the two last weigh ins I'm back on track! So I celebrate (virtually) with you!

Take care,
