DO NOT feel at ALL Bad about not doing any exercising !!!! This is a part of life,,, when we do NOT feel well,,, we simply HAVE TO STOP and take K-ah of ourselves. THis is a MUST !! This is what makes SPARKS Different from a "diet" where they say at times,, YOU SHOULD, when you SHOULD NOT Do this. I am SO PROUD of you for writing to us to let us know where it is ur at hon. So we will have you back with us ONLY when U are well enough to be hon. THese past 2 weeks,, since my surg ,,, I've ALSO been NOT doing ANYTHING for some days,,, and very low than I am normally,,,for it just HURTS to much.
