I am a 52 year old single mother of 2. Both my children are adults. I am on this journey to improve my health and to look and feel better. I have several medical conditions but will not let this keep me down. I started losing weight about 5 years ago and have gone from 281 to 228. I was taking 3 meds for Diabetes and now take only one. I would like to discontinue all my meds for all medical conditions.

I have made several changes in my life since starting this journey. My most recent was moving from Southern CA where I have lived for years and was close to my son to Central CA where I am now living with my daughter. I am trying to be more committed to my lifestyle change. Here I am more active outside with gardening, yard work and walking.

Rainbows and butterflies are themselves beautiful and highly symbolic, but they are also representative of all the small miracles of our life - the little things that are so easy to overlook, yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment to notice and to pay attention.

Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies, for all God's creatures - large and small, for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain, for the tree veiled in the season's first frost, for the baby's laugh, for the touch of a hand and the whispered in your ear you are Loved.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, emoticon
a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, emoticon
all of which have the potential to turn a life around. emoticon

If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it. emoticon

This is my wish for you: emoticon
Comfort on difficult days, emoticon
Smiles when sadness intrudes, emoticon
Rainbows to follow the clouds, emoticon
Laughter to kiss your lips, emoticon
Sunsets to warm your heart, emoticon
Hugs when spirits sag, emoticon
Beauty for your eyes to see, emoticon
Friendships to brighten your being, emoticon
Faith so that you can believe, emoticon
Confidence for when you doubt, emoticon
Courage to know yourself, emoticon
Patience to accept the truth, emoticon
Love to complete your life. emoticon
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened. emoticon emoticon
Have a wonderful and bless day. emoticon

Imagine peace. Imagine love. Imagine oneness.
Imagine whatever most speaks to your heart.
Whatever you can imagine, you can accomplish.
The canvas of life awaits You -
the painter of your dreams.

I hope you get the rain you desparately need and can also get the exercise in. I hate the medications that make you gain weight! So far, right now I think none of them are bothering me. It's just myself sometimes LOL. I've been asked if I should take Lyrica for pain of fibromyalga but I've seen several people put on a lot of weight on that. My grown daughter was one. Then she lost again after she quit taking it. So I'm scared of it. In Texas, where I am since I had the stroke several months ago, we are in Stage I drought conditons. But I came from southern New Mexico where there was severe drought in several counties that way. It's been declared a disaster area in several counties there, and in El Paso county in Texas that borders that area. That way the farmers can get emergency funds to keep them from going broke. And other places have way too much moisture. Like the poor people in Washington state that had that mud slide come down on them. Would so much like to see it spread around more!
