Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

Hi Gail! How is your summer going? And your walking? I saw you have been house painting which I am sure is burning up tons of calories! (Interested in crossing the pond and doing some painting here?) emoticon
I am slowly but surely crawling my way through Spain on the walking4fun website. Am grateful that my real steps are taking place in Holland, where the weather is cooler, although much wetter! Spent Sunday at the beach with DH, walking and just enjoying the sun, sand and sea but since then it has been nonstop rain and wind! Good for the plants, bad for my activity! Hard to get motivated to go outside...
Well just wanted to say you are in my thoughts! emoticon Sissie emoticon

Thanks. I don't get any pain while doing the stretching, except for the back of the knee...darn muscles are so cramped up. But, it feels better once the kinks are worked out. Yes, doing better..you inspire to think it can happen without the surgery. I told my Chiropractor about you and she thinks that is awesome on how good your are doing. I found out some of my issues causing the knee problems is the IT band and the hip out of place. One day at a time...we will get there. Keep hoping anyway!! emoticon emoticon
