Let's make this the best July ever.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success.

"Never wait for the proper mood to start a thing, nor until the spirit moves you. Make your own mood. Make your own spirit. How? ACT. Do something � anything. Inspiration seldom generates action. Action always creates inspiration."

    Thanks for your comments. I'm glad you found a doctor who is more proactive. Victoza was a great help getting me where I am. Ask your doctor about Bydureon, a once a week shot, and Farxiga.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. You left interesting info and I will inquire when I ck in with my Dr, but I think he likes woman that have add'l pounds. I am over due for an annual exam. I might have to change Drs. This Dr was fine as long as I was healthy, but now that I get aches n pains and he says I am just getting old and don't want to admit it. We will see what happens at my next visit. Thanks again. MA
