It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine. Yoga, some exercise and careful diet. Happily, I do not need any medications other than supplements! (Unusual for an octagenarian) With Sparks help, my BP and cholesterol are back to normal and the doctor's don't think I need to lose any weight.

It is good to be back! The rheumatologist appointment so long awaited was good news. The auto immune numbers were nothing to worry about! So now it is back to routine. Yoga, some exercise and careful diet. Happily, I do not need any medications other than supplements! (Unusual for an octagenarian) With Sparks help, my BP and cholesterol are back to normal and the doctor's don't think I need to lose any weight. However, I think we know our bodies best and I feel better when I weigh a few pounds less. At 5' 10" I can carry the weight, but my knees and hips say "thank you" when I lose a few pounds. I intend to stay with Sparks and continue tracking and exercising! It is too easy to slip back into old habits without careful monitoring.

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
-Barbara Cage

Thanks so much for the friend add! My left hip has been giving me fits lately .... and I'm not happy about it! My surgeon had told me that I'd probably need a hip replacement .... d-o-w-n the road ..... I'm just hoping I've got a few more miles to go before I get to THAT road - lol!!

I do hope you find the team helpful. Please don't hesitate to ask questions either on the team thread or directly to Lynn or me. We are a good first source of information. Having gone through replacement surgery gives us a different perspective than that of the surgeon!

I wish you will on your decision.

You still look beautiful and young I am sure for your age. I don't blame you for leaving that picture up though. Not many people in our age group look that good.
