Was morbidly obese, to obese to now overweight!

Beautiful way to end the day. A relaxing day of 35 minutes of walking. After I eat will do 30ish minutes of yoga. It’ll bring my pain level of 7 down to a 1. I started off doing chair yoga. That helps just as much!! I was pretty much wheelchair bound at the time. Please try it and ahhhh,, relief!!

One of the most important ways I can stay positive is by simply SMILING!

I belong to various challenges of which help me to be who I'm today!! The 5% Challenge (On the Spirited Under team as the Motivational Leader) and also on the Biggest Loser Team(On the Invincible Indigo team).

Those who have known me for awhile have watched as I've had many surgeries mostly on my feet. I feel attitude make all the difference. In January I had a different surgery which could of worked out very difficult. It was to put in a stent for a non ruptured aneurysm in my brain behind my left eye. My eyes are messed up, but SMALL price for it being taken care of!!

    Nothing to worry about, I don’t have MS. I have to go for IMS treatments. Inter Muscular Stimulation. Basically large needles into my affected muscles. I do have two family members (by marriage) with MS.

    Diane, I'm sorry. I was outside when you texted me and then got busy with Ray when I came back inside. Later I forgot that I never answered your text.

    We're hanging in there. Life is sweet but tiring, lol.

    Well still having issues with #1, but I am starting to up my Exercise again and I went for a massage. Though it was a therapeutic massage and I actually hurt more today after it, but it all is part of my, keep that shoulder moving plan. My plan is to continue my IMS treatment monthly and to have an monthly massage. I am doing artwork relax, or at least attempting to do art. lol I will catch up on my Dawggie stats tomorrow.
