Resetting the Goal Posts

I took nearly a year off, with my teeth giving me such pain that it was all I could do just to make it through the day. And I regained about 50 of the 75 pounds I had lost.

Starting over, I need to reset my goals. Exercise is back to being a habit again, but the weight comes off at the rate of MAYBE 1 pound a MONTH, instead of a pound or two a week.

Still, that exercise is not only good for my weight goals and overall health. It makes a HUGE difference in my ...

Hi Dianne, I decided to come and add you. I hope you don't mind. We have such commonness with having RA and all the tricks of the trade that go along with it. You are doing so well with weight loss. That is so wonderful! I've gained 30# over the last 3 years with my one knee getting worse and more worse before a total replacement. Now's the time to take it off again and reach that almost 70# mark again! I can walk so much better now. Have a great week!

Hi, Dianne!
I'm also losing only a pound a month... but I am happy for that. Life happens, and I am consistantly SPARKing inspite of what is being thrown into my path each day. Sparking has helped me keep my sanity, and the weight I have lost over the past 9 months HAS helped my RAD. I am finally under 200 for the first time is many years, and I am determined to stay that way! LOL!

Hi Dianne.I'm brand new to the 10 minute a day challenge and I saw your post this morning. Three cheers for you getting into the pool! You are gaining strength from your surgery!
I have added you and hope to get to know you better.
