I have been doing very well. On an average I am losing 2 lbs a month, not bad for someone who's mostly on bed rest, due to a bad foot. That's been the case since June,,,, with at "the moment" allowed to walk,,, some, and I AM !!! This will NOT last for long,, the hardware is coming out of the side of my foot. It's a race between that coming outta my big toe,,,, or the bone healing aided by a bone stimulator.

Does this KEEP ME from Exercising? NO !! it does NOT !!! I am a GOOOO GETTER !! This was my # 18th surgery on feet. and if I used "pain" as an "excuse" to not move since most of my injuries are life long, I'd NEVER Do ANY. I am surrounded on the DAWGGIE team (5% challenge to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks), with 2 other Leaders also in severe, lasting pain, who also are GOOO GETTERS or working on being such. GOOO CHERI and MARYANNGI ! If THEY CAN do it ,,, so CAN I unless my Dr has me on a "not do a thing" order,,, which only happens at surg recovery time,, 2 weeks. He WANTS me to do things,, as do ALL of my Dr's,,,, and I used to be a gymnast when in HS,, I LOVE pushing my body ! WOOHOOOO !!

My goal for this yr,, is to go from 210 down to 190 ! YEAH ! YES I WANT ONEDERLAND ! I CAN DO THIS ! Hoping either May or June for that. :) I go slower than a turtle, but I GET THERE !!!

where in the world do you get your drive and enthusiasm from. You are like the Tony Robbins of Spark. I can totally envision you standing on a stage preaching UNLEASH THE POWER WITHIN. The greatest legacy of a person is the positive attitude they inspire in others. You got that Lady....

In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it "Christmas" and went to church; the Jews called it "Hanukkah" and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank.
People passing each other on the street would say "Merry Christmas!" or "Happy Hanukkah!" or (to the atheists) "Look out for the wall!" ~Dave Barry

Whatever you do, whichever you follow - Enjoy the Season!
Huggers,
Linda

Diane, don't you pay any mind to anyone who thinks you're whining. It's common knowledge that we have to be proactive with our health because if we don't we'll get left behind. Only we know what our bodies are doing and feeling, and as it's our one kick at the can with the one and only body we ever have, we are totally within our rights to demand the best care we can get.
I am totally in sync with you on the Peyton v Tom scenario. Peyton is leaps and bounds above them all, but I do like Tom, Eli, Drew, Aaron, Colin and Russell as well.
Your suggestion to get involved in the in between is a good one. The only thing making me hesitant is I hate it when I can't give it my all. My ability to multi-task with conviction is not what it used to be and when I get too overwhelmed or drowning in stress, I shut down. I need to get back to Aruba - fast...lol I'm just going to focus on the holiday season, my family and all my revolving house guests and my mom's medical appts. for the next couple of weeks and then it will be time to put myself first. I won't have to work until February, so it'll be forward ho, and I can't wait!!!
All the best, my furry friend, and thank you for taking such good care of me!!!
Hugs
Carol
