Hi All
I've been MIA for a while, but thought I should update this message since I started with SparkPeople.
(I was in a little of shock as the site has been re-vamped, but eventually I will find my way around it again). :o)

The beginning of the year (2016) I thought I was looking at a hip much pain and no relief. I went to an Orthopaedic Dr...and it turned all my pain is result of my spine, and all the things that can happen to a back. :o(

I went to physical therapy and had a couple of Epidural Injections...unfortunately the latter didn't give me the long lasting relief I was hoping for.
Following my therapy I joined the gym that was located next door and I have found that it has helped me a lot.
I find sitting too long is a problem for me, but as long as I keep moving I'm good.
Still trying to loose weight...I guess I will always be trying to loose weight, but slowly I've been making some success in that area.

I don't how often I will be checking in, but will try. Just wanted to share a much needed update on me. :o)

    I'm glad you had a wonderful cruise! emoticon
    I recently connected with an old friend that I saw once a year in Wildwood. Our families just happen to go the same time every year and it was the same with us...I haven't talked to her in over 25 years and we just picked up just the same as we always did! Just like you and you HS friend did :)
    Glad to hear that your back is feeling better too!
    Keep that twinkle and it will be a full spark soon emoticon

    Sorry to hear that you got "bumped out" of attending RR! But does sound like you turned it into a great day anyway! The weather has been so sunshiny beautiful lately!!! It was so nice sitting at my son's game in short sleeves instead of two coats and a hat! haha

    Hope you a a happy day emoticon
