WE can do this!!!

Even though I'm proud of the 40+pounds that I've lost since I've been on sparkpeople, sparking has improved my life in so many other ways that the mere fact that I've lost weight doesn't seem as significant (even though it is, for health reasons!). I'm just as so happy to be part of this wonderful community of friends sharing a similar journey!
You know what made the difference for me? The 5% Challenges . . . Fall, Winter, Spring, now Summer! They are awesome!

I have been doing those stretches several times a day, even when I was out on my walk yesterday. I think it is helping, that and time. My back is feeling much better, not perfect and still have a ways to go, but much better none the less. Thanks for all of your support.

Hi Carol - I went through the painful procedure yesterday with the hip and today I have no pain - We will see how long it lasts but even a little while is a blessing and it is hurry up and wait - however the knee has developed the pain back - Now the good news I will be starting pool therapy soon and that will help with so much. Have a blessed day - Thinking ofyou. Jo emoticon

You rock!!!! Thanks for the stretch, I did it immediately. Hurts but I will continue to do it every time I sit down, just a couple at a time.

It is a beautiful day out today so my friends want to walk. I am going to try but not push it, I think I am going to ask them to cut the walk short today. We will see how it goes.
