    For starters- drink more water! 80 ounces of water every day and you can lose five pounds the first week.

            Here is the potato sack exercise:

            EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 40 Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks. Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.) After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.
            I can't remember who first posted this, but her username begins with a K.

                  Not me. I'm still at potato chip bag level. I quoted that from another powwow poster.

                      Planning on Chef Salad for brunch and Chili Rellanos for a late lunch. And an "I...
