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!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

That's good to know that ST. Marks LH is one of his faves! Has really good reviews on it online too! I wish we could go up in it- so many you can't. Still want to go to the one near Daytona Beach one of the tallest in the U.S. We have been there before...prior to being on SP. So we are overdue to go. Maybe I will attempt to climb the stairs to the top...kind of worry my knees won't take it though. It is quite the workout according to my hubby, who did go up into it.
http://ponceinlet.org/ that is the link to it.
Have a great day and please post pics of your finished projects. All that work you are doing sounds exhausting, but productive. emoticon emoticon

Thank you, Gail, for checking in on me. I have been MIA for quite a while now, even though I secretly stalk all of your pages from time to time. I am doing well, although not weight wise, in every other way. I am just coming through a really rough year, and instead of reaching out, I withdrew, which is why I am where I am now on my health journey. I still have hope, though, that I will get back on track and finally lose this weight! Hope all is well with you!
