I have lived alone for 3 weeks, there are times when i am very lonely. Mostly i am happy, I have started my exercises again, gained a lot of weight over the year I lived with my kids. My scale spent the year in the car trunk so needless to say it is not working I will have to get another one day, but for now i will concentrate on getting the exercises going again, get my eating under control and watch for non scale victories. What I weigh is not important its how I feel that counts. Right now I am tired and in a lot of pain, but I can and will fix that.
When the doctor says exercise and good diet will take the pain away, I was angry, why can't I just get medication like other people take a pill be done and not have to change anything. For me that is not possible anti inflammatory medications cause my kidneys to stop working that includes over the counter as well as prescription medication. I can take no more than 2 aspirin a day with out causing my self problems. So I set out in the beginning to prove he was wrong, diet and exercise can not help pain and i proved him right at one time i had way more energy and was completely pain free after only a couple of months eating right and exercising. So why did I stop, don't know.
I studied nutrition in college, I know how important water is to a body, but know is not doing so as of today I am back on track, (started yesterday actually) going to stay on track one day at a time. My goal is to become pain free, if i loose weight I will be excited, but if not I don't hurt and I can walk that is my goal.

The move was different, I am alone for the first time since i was born. Just me in this apartment and you know what I love it. I can decorate if i want or not. I have moved the furniture a couple times looking for the most comfortable and best use of my space think i found it now. I run up and down a flight of stairs several times a day and its getting easier. In the morning I get up have a cup of coffee, cook myself an egg and some toast then put in a cd and do my sit and be fit video and work out for about 30 minutes. Its nice now because no one is coming in my room telling me to turn down video or complaining because I am making too much noise. I just do what i need to do and then I sweep and mop my place wash dishes go do some laundry. Life is good, its simple but its how I like it.
I hope everyone can enjoy life as I do. Yes I am happy

Coming this Friday I will be moving. not the first time probably not the last time. But this move is a first for me I will be getting a place and living there alone. It is exciting and scary I have never lived alone. I have lived with husbands, children and parents my whole live and now I will be doing something new. I found a nice studio apartment that is with in my income range it will be tight but I must be careful but i will be able to make it.
Yesterday I set up the truck so that i can take my things to the new place, set up my internet and tv package most of my things are packed. I am ready as i can be for this move.
The beginning of this winter my children told me they no longer wanted me in their apartment that they were moving to a smaller place and i would have to find my own place. I was devastated, I cried, then I started saving money, I am almost 60 to old to start living on the street I was so scared, I would never have enough money in time. I managed to save a little, but living on a tight budget doesnt leave a lot of extra cash for saving. I made some changes, saved some more, then my friend gave me enough money to make it work. so I made it not alone, but with the help of my dear friend. Now the time is getting closer for some reason the fear has left mostly I am excited and am looking forward to this new chapter in my life. After all most people experience living on their own as teenagers. I think i am ready, I am gonna do this. I will not have internet for about a week.

Cant exercise until after i see the doctor Monday morning, hopefully she will release me. Turns out that the heart can't exercise if oxygen levels are low. Though that was my only symptom turns out I had some kind of pneumonia, Am doing much better now doing some walking, slowly, but better than none until i get clearance to go back to work. Got to get my rest, just wanted everyone to know i didn't quit just got slowed down a bit.
