It's hard to get off the last few pounds and I'm so close. I have hypothyroidism which makes losing difficult so maybe I should maintain as I've been doing and just keep tracking. I'll never be a size 6 again and at my age I'm satisfied with just keeping fit and enjoying life.
Born 1950. I have severe arthritis (since my mid-30's) and have undergone multiple hand surgeries (joint fusions, replacements, etc.) I also had a triple cervical fusion. Now have hypothyroidism. Old age ... gotta love it.
I've been married since 1981 to a great guy; no children. I have two wonderful cats that are the light of my life. Over the years I've always had cats that live to a ripe old age (the two recent losses were 20 years old and 16 years old) and one dog (a Westie) that lived to 16 which was almost unheard of as they usually live only 10-12 years.
I attend a wonderful Church and enjoy my immediate family and friendships.
Hello new Friend! My goodness, you have had so much pain to tolerate for many years - my heart goes out to you. Amazingly, it doesn't show in your face and you look wonderful. I have learned, over the years, that some people's pain threshold is higher than others and they are invariably the ones who have a positive attitude and/or a very strong faith. Pain at its worst is dreadful, and chronic pain can wear a person down for sure. However, with a strong mindset, the sufferer can almost accept it and deal emotionally with it, choosing whether or not to let it ruin their life and possibly that of those around them, or be accepted as an uninvited running partner through the privilege of life. You clearly choose the latter and your youthful, happy face shows that. WELL DONE YOU!
