I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude
for my life as it is TODAY,
right now,
in this very moment.
I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!

We are definitely 'SP' sisters when it comes to this journey with our struggle with the plateau - the not losing weight despite our efforts. I'm very happy that we continue to share in the journey.

Have a blast in Anguila!! emoticon

You CRACK ME UP!! I know... ENOUGH ALREADY!! I've been coughing for FOUR MONTHS!! I can't blame the doctor for not jumping on this, because I've been thinking... it's gonna get better, it's gonna get better. Well it ain't gettin' any better!!

Yes, matter of fact there is a change in my environment... A SECOND GRANDDAUGHTER to take care of!! LOL!! You think I'm allergic to her?? She can be a stinker sometimes!! Just kidding, she's a darling. She's always hugging me and saying, "I love you, Gam!" AH, I ask you... How sweet is that!?
emoticon
I had the x-ray and the nurse didn't believe me when I told her I was almost 70! She said she thought I was her age about 58!! Now that made me feel better!! Good genes I guess. I get that all the time. Maybe I've got that disease that makes you grow younger!!

Happened to catch you along the way.....added you as a friend.....hope you don't mind! I too am suffering from hip bursitis .....aggravating isn't it? Will be interested in whether the prednisone works for you. My MD wanted to do a cortisone injections into the hip but I told her I would hod off for now.

slapping your wrist Liz, you should have gone to the doc sooner babe.

Hope he can help. You must take better care of yourself, your grand babies rely on you for fun and games and I'm sure you'd hate to miss out for the sake of taking some sound medical advice.

Naughty, naughty emoticon

emoticon emoticon let me know how you got on...please?? emoticon
