One step at a time

I'm Mary and I'm here to get healthy and strong and to lose weight. Today 12/18/14 I'm starting fresh. I've been on and off this bandwagon for years. This time I mean to make it stick. I keep finding excuses to fall off and then I gain back everything I've lost.

I'm challenged in this because I have moderate to severe debilitating arthritis in my hips and lower back. Because of years of ignoring the pain or walking through the pain I have chronic back pain and problems. I am ...
I'm Mary and I'm here to get healthy and strong and to lose weight. Today 12/18/14 I'm starting fresh. I've been on and off this bandwagon for years. This time I mean to make it stick. I keep finding excuses to fall off and then I gain back everything I've lost.

I'm challenged in this because I have moderate to severe debilitating arthritis in my hips and lower back. Because of years of ignoring the pain or walking through the pain I have chronic back pain and problems. I am seeing a regular doctor and a pain management specialist who are supposed to be helping me. I also scheduled an appointment with a nutritionist next week. I'm doing what I need to do to address these issues and try to get healthy.

I have a lot of weight to lose and this is going to be a journey. I think with some accountability I might be able to stick it out this time.

Thanks for the goodie, it was a lovely surprise. So jealous you're watching the snow! We had a load a couple of weeks ago - so beautiful.

Hello. I just read your blog about the drive thru. That spicy chicken and bean soup sounds good. Would you mind sharing the recipe?

Thanks!! emoticon

Hello there - lovely to"see" you. How's it going? I hope all is well.
We have glorious weather - 19c - so I've spent loads of time in the garden. I've dug most of it over and need to think about which seeds to plant and get the other pond finished - finished or not, the frogs have moved in and left their mark. They'll be loads of tadpoles this year.

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend
