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!

Hi Gail, how's everything going with you? I've been busy around the house and we've had a lot going on with my MIL, so I haven't been able to spend a lot of time on SP. Wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm thinking about you and wishing the best for you.
I've been doing good with my eating, and using my exercise DVD's to keep myself moving. We're supposed to have warmer temperatures this weekend, so I'm hoping to get outside for a few walks and maybe even ride my bike. emoticon

Hope you're having a great week!! emoticon

Thank you for stopping by my sparkpage. Is the laser therapy working for you? x

Hey Gail, how goes it? I am trying to get back into my SParking again, joined another 5% challenge. Should be around. I had laser therapy this last week myself. I have used it in the ast and even though I wasn't a believer in the beginning, I am now. Is it helping you? It takes a few sessions to start helping. emoticon

That is awesome you are getting laser therapy for your knees! I asked her about that too. They have been going up my calves and getting the tendon that was really hurting behind my knee too. Glad to hear another success story of laser therapy. I am hoping it will get me moving better a few weeks earlier-so I can get back to my regular walking and back on my bike. Take care and feel well soon! Enjoy your weekend! emoticon
