Hey Kathy, Thanks for stopping by my page and enjoying my intro. It actually took me about 6 weeks to write.
I see you have problems with your feet, I am guessing diabetes related? Also you have a rough time walking. Is it possible you can do your walking in the pool. They say that pool workouts are probably one of the best forms of exercise because it isn't blunt force trama on our bodies. Just treading water for 30 mins for someone my size can burn like 300 cals.
Well I am glad to have a new friend, always great to get encoragement and to give it to others to help us saty motivated. Stop by anytime. I will check on you to see how things are going. You actually look fimilar to me, but don't know where I would know you from.
Best of luck and health

Kathy, Thanks for adding me as a friend, and I have added you, as well. You are at the right place to accomplish your goals. I admire your being able to keep your grandchildren two days a week. As much as I would like to keep my two year old granddaughter, I would definitely not be able to keep up with her. Though I don't have feet problems, I broke my ankle in 1991, and I cannot tolerate being on my feet for hours at a time. I am hoping with weight loss that will improve. Also, because of my weight, my lower back gets to hurting something terribly when I am on my feet for any length of time. Again, losing weight should improve this. I hope you will stay in touch and we can help one another be accountable to the process!!
