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...

Other Information:
Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

    This is so true. I've adjusted my attitude and I'm hoping this will bring me the results that I'm after. One change at a time. NEVER GIVE UP, WE ARE WORTH THIS FIGHT!!
    Gail, I hope you're having a wonderful week.

    Shingles is indeed an experience. I caught mine real early, so the meds helped the lesions clear up pretty quick. I sure hope you don't get that postherpetic pain, like I did. I think it was a good 2 years before I felt better. Have a good rest of the week. I see you are out there being busy! Good for you! emoticon

    Thank goodness it was a mild case. I need to get my shot. My oldest Sister had that years ago, and she was miserable.
    I'm doing pretty good. We had a hard rain today. We received 1 inch. Not bad. Hope you have a good Saturday. emoticon
