New Year, New Me with a healthy lifestyle!

Hi my name is Ruth. I have been working on losing my weight since Fall of 2005. I succeeded & was w/in 10#s of my goal in 2007 when my mom passed away. That was the beginning of a slow climb back up the scale.

Hi my name is Ruth. I have been working on losing my weight since Fall of 2005. I succeeded & was w/in 10#s of my goal in 2007 when my mom passed away. That was the beginning of a slow climb back up the scale.

*** Jan 1st, 2012: The past year is 1 I will never wish back. Lots of disappointments as far as mine & our son's health goes. 1st was my wrist problems starting in 2010 that caused me to cut WAY back on my massaging. MY LIVELIHOOD was @ stake. It's a problem that will never go away or get better, but I have learned how to manage the problem MOST of the time. 1 client/day. Stinks, but @ least I can still work some.

So, here it is, Jan 5, 2015 & I have gained every pound I lost back in the mid 2000's. I ended up having a painful foot issue that no1 could seem to pinpoint. Several Drs & specialists later, there was STILL no answer, but I unsuspectingly fixed it myself in July of 2014. I was having back pain, so I took a muscle relaxant. Low & behold, several days later I realized my foot pain was gone & it hasn't returned since. OMG! 2&1/2 yrs I dealt with this pain, not being able to walk or even ride a bike & 1 little muscle relaxer did it??? So I started back exercising & then peri-menopause reared it's ugly head. I haven't had the money to go find my hormone creams (I've found those work best for me, so thanks for the advice, I've tried others & they don't work as well for me) b/c I'm still paying on MRI's & other bills for my foot (when a simple pill fixed it.... understand my frustrations now?) SO, here I am, a new year, new feeling of rejuvenation & I'm ready to get back to where I was 8 yrs ago.
