Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Just got notified that I have been here for 60 days. Don't feel so isolated with such a number of people offering support, understanding, friendship, and companionship.
I have two granddaughters and hope to live long enough to see them both walk down the aisle.

My Program:
I feel that I am not doing enough to reach my goals. I get very depressed and have great difficulty with exercise due to my medical challenges but keep on trying within my limitations.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I live near Lake Michigan in my own condo. I have been here a year and have still not been able to walk to the lake. My name is Rhoda.

Other Information:
Just wanted to say that anyone can achieve what they want if they want it enough. I began working on my Masters degree at age 64 and graduated with a 3.57 average. The impossible just takes a little longer.

I remember you from a post a long while back re: mastectomy.
I was wondering how things are going for you?!

I'm about 1 1/2 years out from my double mastectomy.

I was curious how you are doing?
Anything I can be praying for you?

Hope you are doing well.
p.s. I just read on your page that you acheived your Masters at age 64! That is SOOOOOOOO inspirational. It's never "too late" to go for it!

xo,
Sue
