Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Thak you again my friend for all your support. You have no idea how much it means to me. I decided that May just HAD to be the month. It was time to turn things around and quit living in the pain of the past. So far so good, early days but the first day is completed successfully. Believe me, didn't know if I could make one day, and I feel better all ready.
Gail, I get it about being discouraged due to injuries or pains. When I first started SP, my knees were so painful that I could barely walk. Still remember lying on the couch, doing arm exercises with weights and leg lifts just so I could keep moving and get strong. Am still hunting for that woman with so much committment and dedication! The point being is that I was in a state of mind that if I couldn't do one kind of exercise, then I would do something else. Nothing was going to stop me.
I see that in you when I see what you track in your exercise, and am amazed at the things you are still doing in spite of your knees! I really hope that the physio and then if needed, the surgery will give you the relief you are looking for. In the meantime, let's make May the month of change!
Big hugs, Sissie emoticon

Every day, take one more step than the day before. These extra steps will make a HUGE difference in the end!! Hope you have an AWESOME week, Gail!

I used to love that song ...good morning sunshine! Keep going with the weight loss and taking care of those knees. I think I will have to make an appointment with my orthopedic Dr. soon...overdue for a checkup. I fear what he will say. I have insurance but the copays and deductible are so high. Oh, well we got to do what we got to do. You showed me that!! Have a good day and week ahead. emoticon
