Annie's Journey....

My journey is filled with many of "life's inconveniences" ~ health challenges that are out of my control, eating challenges that I CAN control and exercise challenges that I'm learning to adapt.

These inconveniences add challenges to my day.

Life is not perfect, but if we start the day with a positive attitude and throw in a huge helping of quick wit, the day is bound to improve!

My journey is filled with many of "life's inconveniences" ~ health challenges that are out of my control, eating challenges that I CAN control and exercise challenges that I'm learning to adapt.

These inconveniences add challenges to my day.

Life is not perfect, but if we start the day with a positive attitude and throw in a huge helping of quick wit, the day is bound to improve!

Truth be told ~ my obseity is the symptom, emotional over-eating is my disease and weight-loss is my reward.

Let's gather together with a bit of "spark" and soon we will have a bonfire started. Whether you are leading, walking alongside or gently encouraging from behind....let's make the best effort on this journey, called LIFE.

Take a chance......to make a change........towards better choices.

Update: July 9, 2013
Last November I damaged my Brachial Plexus - Neurosurgeon told me to learn to walk or pick an alternative. From Nov 8th until Jan 23, I received Occupational and Physical therapy to regain strength and get me upright ~ it never happened.

February found out my Osteo-arthritis in my knees were bone-on-bone. In March, the Orthopaedic Specialist told me I would be wheel chair bound - no bi-lateral knee replacements due to Chronic DVT's and the severity of my Lymphedema. Even IF I were a skinny chick, he recommended this surgery NEVER be performed. The risk of infection would be to high.

When I thought life couldn't get any worse....it did! Wayne died in his sleep on April 11th...most days I just want to curl up and die (interesting past time).

I felt like crying and laughing at the same time as I read your kind comment on my blog about my mom and Alzheimer's... This is such a strange, disturbing, nasty and sometimes funny disease... I am really sorry your mom went through it too... and how much it exhausted your dear Dad...

Today as I was taking my mom to her room in the elevator, she saw me in the mirror leaning over her and stroking her cheek (she tends to panic in closed spaces so I am always careful to comfort her). She doesn't understand mirrors anymore, so she didn't realize it was us. She smiled at these two people in the mirror and said to me: "Awwww isn't it just charming?" I said it was indeed. I had a big smile on my face then. My mother has always been a very kind person, although for many reasons she wasn't a caring mother. But she has become even kinder and nicer now, and a very loving mother. I am cherishing those moments even more and I am grateful that we have this opportunity to have such precious times despite this awful disease that makes her so sad.
