Came back in July '14 after 3 1/2 years

I'm 64 yrs old and a 15 yr breast cancer survivor. I suffer from neuropathy due to Taxol (chemo drug) with pain throughout my body most of this time. Surgery on both knees 24 years ago + bad hip began to limit my exercise ability 10 years ago + weight gain slowed me down even more. Now need to loose the wt and increase my mobility, flexibility, and endurance while adding some muscle.

Happy St. Patrick's Day my dear Spark Friend emoticon

May The Road
Rise Up To Meet You


May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

(traditional Gaelic blessing)

emoticon , I'm glad you tried on the wrap around skirt after 2 years. Looking at your pictures, wow, you were tiny... I don't think I've ever been that skinny. Congrats on your 30 pound weight loss. I've been having some difficulty with my weight loss. Since I started strength training it's been so much harder for me to continue losing weight, I'm working on it though.... I won't give up, wish me luck!
