I used to be very pysically fit and active until I had an injury that required surgery and a long recovery. I'm still working through it but am on a healthy track to fitness and well being. I love to travel and love music. I still work at a job I love but it is very mentally and pysically demanding. I have one 29year old son and have been married 40 years.

I gained 40 pounds when I quite smoking 15 years ago and have been taking off 20 and putting it back on ever since. I will never have my "youthful weight" of 130 back and have come to realize that, but I can make healthy choices and be the best that I can be.

I have learned that I can control the pain of age related disease through diet and exercise. (I'm a hardcore arthritis sufferer) and had thyroid cancer that metastasied to a soft tissue sarcoma tumor behind my knee. I am lucky to be alive since I didn't seek treatment in a timely manner, thinking it was arthritis. I still have bad days, but I am thankful for the days I have.

Exercising (no matter how) is so important. Once you start, you never stop. Eating right may not matter to you now, but trust me, what you do now will show up years later, if you're lucky enough to live that long.

    Wise old Abe! He knee that we only need to focus on that one day and do the best we can. I'm focused on making today a good day and hope you are too.

    “Every choice you make has an end result.” ~ Zig Ziglar

    The important part of this process is learning to make the RIGHT choices!
    I hope you have a "right choices" day.

    Anxiety is one of those insidious emotions that abates for a while and then comes back when you don't expect it. Some days I think I have a pretty good handle on it and then... but I AM BETTER RIGHT NOW and investigating and learning how to be even better. I like my psychologist and she's helping me. I also get a lot from a blogger who is a Spark Friend and I will share her name so you can read her blogs... Look up MARINGAL and read her blogs. She has some really good insights and has helped me a lot by making me think and by being supportive. Check her blogs out... emoticon

    “Most people want to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch.” ~Robert Orben

    Hey - I think I found part of my problem! I'm staying in very CLOSE touch with way too many temptations!
    Hope all is going well for you and your loved ones.
