It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine.

It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine. Yoga, some exercise and careful diet. Happily, I do not need any medications other than supplements! (Unusual for an octagenarian) With Sparks help, my BP and cholesterol are back to normal and the doctor's don't think I need to lose any weight. However, I think we know our bodies best and I feel better when I weigh a few pounds less. At 5' 10" I can carry the weight, but my knees and hips say "thank you" when I lose a few pounds. I intend to stay with Sparks and continue tracking and exercising! It is too easy to slip back into old habits without careful monitoring.

Thank you for the crown goodie and the lovely note. I arrived home the 11th and have improved in the two days I have been here. It was quite an ordeal.

Birthdays are a new start; fresh beginnings, a time to start new endeavors with new goals. Move forward with fresh confidence and courage. You are a special person, may you have an amazing today and year!

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect.
There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions.
So what. Get started now.
With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
