"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.
