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!

Thank you so much for your advice on my blog! Running was my quit project, but I never really thought of it as an addiction! I'm still not even sure if it's not being able to run, or just cabin fever, that is making me so restless! AlAnon is definitely something I might be able to try, though. I'll have to look into local groups.

I hope everything has been going well for you. Have a great week!
