Our daughters have always been a lot of fun to be around.





Sitting and knitting while the rest of the family is more active. That was me!

May 2011 - I am a 63 year old grandmother wanting to be able to keep up with my active toddler grandson. He has made me realize how much energy and physical fitness I have lost and I want it back! I have faith with my families help I will get there.

July 2013 - It has been 2 years as I am 65 now. I have permanently lost 16 pounds, and I can get up off the floor with less effort now. Still not as fast as a young person, and there is room for improvement! Still loving SP and all ...

November 2014 - I came awfully close to putting all the weight back on this summer, but am back on track. My knees are the red flag warning that I have got to stop this madness and help them! I am doing that!

Thank you for the commiseration on my blog about my husband's post-stroke loss of motorcycle riding and just about every other physical effort. I tried nagging him about his lifestyle habits to no avail. Even after the first stroke he did what he pleased. It was obvious to all of us that something had changed, but he denied it, said we were picking on him. It was the second stroke that had him immobile on the floor that finally got his attention, and by then it was too late. He can still drive, but he can't garden like he did, he can't play tennis anymore, and riding is out. No amount of nagging will pierce a thick skull. It didn't even help to look at someone else's post-stroke MRI as what could happen, because he really really believed it would never happen to him. It was only seeing the big dark spots on his own MRI that finally got his attention, and by that time it was too late. He is 77 going on 95, and there is, and never was, anything I could do about it. We beleaguered spouses have to hang in there together.

I agree...more reasonable steps first and then we can worry about the 10,000 steps. Isn't it funny how these things become the rule when it started out totally differently!!! Hope you have a great evening!! Hugs, Jeannie

Loathe wind chimes -- believe that they should be banned outright!! (Not even pretending to be tolerant about them!!)

My hands look much, much improved. WooHoo! My feet have much less scale, although there is new cracking and a lot of pain when I walk-dance-move. I'm thinking this is all part of the healing process. I've been on slippery oak tree bark tee for a week now. I got it at local health food store. The American saffron tea I had to order. It came yesterday. Also, on lecithin as Pagano recommends. Another friend recommended 3 other supplements, so I'm trying. Also still have some ointment from dermatologist, so not going totally natural yet. Thanks for your interest and continuing support! -Marsha
