Hi Pam! Congrats on the upcoming nuptials.
You sound like you're doing a lot of things right! Definitely get the book, it's very motivating and nice to have on hand for a quick read any time. All of my aches and pains and gastro issues disappeared after I stopped eating flour and sugar, I hope the same holds true for you. I've lost 14 lbs since Jan. 2 by eating primally, working out 6 days a week, and yes, counting calories. For me that's the holy trinity that works. I'm female and in my 50s. You'll find what works for you too!
Please take hot bride dress photo pics in June
