In case you come back to read this, Dawn, your Goodie and message was so timely, I can hardly express it fully and thank you for same. Just out of the blue! But those are the best kind.

Keep up the good work and those 99 lbs. will fly off. You have come a long, long way, girl!

Hugs to you and family,

Helen

HI Helen !! Was just a thinking about ya !!

I read a blog (perhaps you remember Jeannie? Iowagramma?) shes an older Dawggie,, with an AMAZING attitude !!! Lately she's joined the Y, and is now having such FUN it simply made me wonder "I wonder if Helen has a Y near her"? She's doing the sneaker age group,, where she THOUGHT it'd to be TO EASY and found out,, it's a CHALLENGE to keep up with 80 yr olds,, she's younger. LOL I laughed,,, for I had taken an aerobic class in the water,, and found out,, I can NOT keep up !! Did ya know,, one can EASILY SWEAT in water? OH YEAH !!!

So kiddo,, does ya got a Y near ya? Would you be willing, if you aren't or haven't already tried,,,,, to give this a go? I LOVE our community center,,, I can go and play CARDS or GAMES,,, than go swimming (I do laps,, well I WILL once I get the foolish cast off,, this is #3 on ,,, but, as of next Thurs,,,, it comes OFF FINALLY ! Been in them since June,,, it'll be August ! I was told though "it'll be 8 weeks of recovery and they were NOT kidding ! than I CAN SWIM 2 weeks later at the beach !! LOL I ve tried to walk thru the sand with crutches,,, it's NOT EASY NOR FUN !! I FELL ALL OVAH the place ! LOL Envision this ! LOL !!
