The Buck Stops Here

For the past few years, I have struggled to find a partner to stick with me as much as I stick with them..someone to be my work out buddy...etc.

I can be a great motivator and can push someone else to make their goals..which is great, but I find myself on a long uphill journey, alone.

I was walking more at work until now, my job has changed back to a desk job, so not much walking anymore...although I did buy an under desk cycle so I wouldn't swell up too fast.

I have Hydrocephalus, low blood pressure and hypoglycemia, to name a few of my issues... My problem, I either don't eat at all, because of stress or whatever, or I am snacking all day and night while working, probably from boredom, since I am not walking as much..I don't know.

I joined this site, to meet people and share in the journey..which up to now, I have helped several people...and the ones who have helped me are at the end of their journey, so they disappeared pretty quickly...or a few others just plain gave up on me and stopped caring...or mall walking.

I have a lot going on with my health right now, but I am in control...for the most part..still trying to reach my goals.

Emily, it was so nice to meet you, Rog & Hannah yesterday and so very thoughtful of you three to want to wait for me to tour Sturbridge Village. It was most appreciated. I did manager to get through MOST of it, but I was so slow with walking that I missed the last few buildings, etc. because it got too late. They were closing. There'll always be another day.
Oh ya, guess what? That little trick for that stupid bell didn't work. I tried it several times but to no avail. I managed to get as far as 495 before I REALLY had to turn on my headlites because the sun was too low in the sky. Sadly, I also missed the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH, but it was tough enough hearing that awful Ding-ding-ding for the 30 minute stretch of 495 to home. There was NO WAY I could have tolerated it for almost 2 hrs. Oh well!
