Do or Die

Here I am again at the top of the roller coaster. Unfortunately, I'm at the weight in the picture just to the left of this article. Up all the pounds I had lost and having to start all over.

I feel terrible. I'm almost 60 and feel like I'm more like 70. My arthritis is extensive in my lower back, both knees and right hip. I had a total hip replacement in February on my left hip and have the right one scheduled for September. My hospital stay was very emotional because of ...
Here I am again at the top of the roller coaster. Unfortunately, I'm at the weight in the picture just to the left of this article. Up all the pounds I had lost and having to start all over.

I feel terrible. I'm almost 60 and feel like I'm more like 70. My arthritis is extensive in my lower back, both knees and right hip. I had a total hip replacement in February on my left hip and have the right one scheduled for September. My hospital stay was very emotional because of my weight.

Do you know how it feels to have nurses who weight 1/2 of your weight trying to help get you out of bed? Although the results of the surgery were wonderful, I don't look forward to another at this weight. And I'm worried that even with the second hip replacement I'll still be in pain and have to use a cane the rest of my life.

I want to look forward to retirement in five or six years and not be wheelchair bound. I need this for me.

My apologies for not welcoming you back sooner, but WELCOME BACK!! I've gained back a little myself, but we keep on trying to make healthy choices. I was most successful last summer and fall, and hope to make the same strides this year, working through the stress of overworked, and underpaid, but I vow to stay focused. You can too!!

There is a quality about you
That touches me deep in my heart
This quality is so special
It sets you quite apart

You're a kind and generous person
Who can brighten up my day
Bringing much joy to my life
With your kind and thoughtful ways

Thank you for all you do
And all that you've done
Too numerous to mention
Thanks for each one

*THANK YOU*for being my Friend!

Friends
Drain the colour from the rainbow,
Let the stars tumble from the sky,
Mute the bird’s morning chorus,
Steal the beauty from the flowers.
All these and more I’d sacrifice,
And surely would survive.
But friendship . . . .
Not a moment could I bare,
To be without the friends I love.
For they are life’s true wonders,
Filling my heart, my soul, my senses.
With all the colours of happiness,
With every sight and sound of joy.
