"One Day At a Time" has been my moto for most of my life. Somewhere along the way I forgot, your motivational e-mails have helped me remember. I will need all the support I can get. With Fibromyalga I quit moving years ago. The meds put weight on faster than anyone could imagine. I don't eat fast food or junk food, (cookies aren't junk are they :)). I enjoy cooking. I sing two days a week as a volunteer for senior's and for fund raising. The name of our group is the "Silver Threads". I don't have silver hair yet, but I know it's in my future. I spend a lot of time with these senior's and they have energy to dance and sing in their seventies and eighties. I want that for me ten to fifteen years from now. In the future I intend to Dance, Laugh and Love and continue Singing.
I'm one year into my program and am now setting new goals. Last year I could hardly walk and this year I'm dancing. My confidence has grown so much with the weight loss. I'm now Past President of the Silver Threads Senior's Club. Last year I even sang to them for Valentine's Day. In the past I was just a member of the Choir and had difficulty standing up and speaking. What a difference 42 Lbs can make.Dec 28,2010 I'm started over. Lost 58 Pounds and think I sabataging myself when I can see how much I've lost. Recording here so I can revisit if needed start weight 243. Well life happens and it's now 2013 and I've had a set back and am starting over at 200 lbs. Physio is working on my hip and I'm working on getting back to exercising and watching my intake of food.

    Just stopping by to say hi & wish you continued success on reaching your goals. Have you sung your solo yet? Hope you've been getting outside (weather permitting!) & enjoying the sun & fresh air. Gardening & yard work is a priority here, not always possible with all the rain though. Have a "sparkling" day! emoticon

    Thank you for your open mindedness about pole fitness in the exercise poll! I took it up at 61. My husband loves it. I even have my own pole at home. I would love to bungee jump. Haven't done that yet! I also want to do trapeze and silks, but the closest school for that is too far to go on a weekly basis!

    My daughter has bungee jumped and was asked while waiting her turn if she knew anyone else who would try it. Her reply: "I''m sure my mom would!" However, she doesn't approve of my pole fitness!
