Did You Know

 Did you know a new study shows that overweight seniors are outliving their thinner counterparts? The thinking is that fat fuels the body and protects the bones.

I didn't know that. I suspect there are also studies which say the complete opposite.
Happy October to you too.

My doctor says the same and is always nagging me to put on some weight! Hugs, Valerie

Wow, that's good news because I've put on about 6 lbs since the lockdown. Now I have an excuse for not taking it off.

I am a senior...... but losing weight at present, probably all the worry of the world.
Take care.

To a point ... 'oh good' ... though if my belly hung about as some do ... I'd be very depressed! I suspect you're a skinny one! Take care - eat more ... cheers Hilary

I've often thought that a 'good bit of meat on your bones' gives you some reserves to draw on if things go wrong. Like all things, I suppose it is about balance.

Birgit said...

Now that makes sense so I should live to be 120. Love the black cat

Jamie Ghione said...

Wow, amazing.
And Happy October to you.

Sandra Cox said...

You know it:)

Christine said...

That's great news Serena, I will continue to enjoy eating. Happy October!

Christine said...

I meant to say Sandra, had just left Serena's blog, sorry.

Sandra Cox said...

This was a new one for me. I think it's definitely good for the bones, but maybe not so much the heart....

Sandra Cox said...

Worry can do it, for sure.
Take special care.

Sandra Cox said...

Ha. I've put on some too.

Jeanie said...

I did not know this and it's a good thing. Sort of. If you don't get Covid where weight is a negative factor! Still, I'll count my blessings for today!

That is just amazing! I've never heard that at all. Since I don't lose or gain, I'll hope I'm okay (lol). Happy October 1st to you, or, as Lewis Buzbee would say, "Rabbit, rabbit."
Stay safe and well.

Sandra Cox said...

Definitely, a different take to what we normally hear, hey?

Sandra Cox said...

I hear ya on that. Whenever I gain weight that is where it lands.
Take special care.

Sandra Cox said...

Balance. Agreed.

Sandra Cox said...

Ha ha:)

Sandra Cox said...

Who'd a thought. Huh?

Sandra Cox said...

Counting today's blessings sounds like a plan for all of us.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh:)
Glad you like the October kitty.
Happy October to you, Denise.

Oops, Sandra I accidentally deleted your comment on my 4th Wish blog. I thought I was deleteing the spam comment above it. Sorry. If you have time, can you stop by again? My reply is there, but not your comment.

Pat Hatt said...

lmao well the bones may be good, the heart may not so much. Or the liver. Or...

Sandra Cox said...

I'm sure you are fine:)
Happy October, Elizabeth.

Sandra Cox said...

Heading over now.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh.

Birgit said...

Did you hear about those foul mouthed parrots in London? They would swear and were teaching the other parrots to swear so the crew had to separate them.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Indeed.

RO said...

As I wander out for my 15 minutes, I'm thrilled to hear that there's hope for me yet!(lol) Hugs, RO
