Another year has passed
And we're all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems much colder.
There was a time not long ago
When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
About 'Living in the Past'
We used to go to weddings,
Football games and lunches.
Now we go to funeral homes
And after-funeral brunches.
We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches
And wile the night away.
We used to go out dining,
And couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.
We used to often travel
To places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
From riding in the car.
We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze.
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening news.
That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up...
Before you're too damned old!!

At 63 it has been a year of discovery, why am I so tired all the time? Will I be healthy when I retire? Been to almost every kind of doctor there is this year, been poked, prodded, stuck, had blood sucked out and tested, had x-rays, CT scan, surgeries, EKG and the doctors couldn't tell me a thing. Had a sleep test and ruled out sleep apnea, found I have restless leg syndrome which is why I'm not getting sleep. No new suggestions except for more meds.
Read an infomercial on the internet about a month ago on 5 signs you will get cancer and 7 ways to predict it (my CT of the lung showed some clouding on the right front lobe, had a precancerous polyp during my endoscopy--so yeah, I'm interested!) Low and behold, about the first thing they said you can do to prevent cancer is to take iodine..........when they listed the symptoms of an iodine deficiency, it read like a laundry list of all the symptoms I complained about this year. I researched online, you have to take kelp tablets to get the iodine. I bought a bottle of 300 for about $12 and started taking one a day. The tablet is as thin as your fingernail and about the size of your pinky fingernail.
I felt an IMMEDIATE change in my emotional, mental and physical condition. Skeptic that I am, I thought wow, this is great, will it last? Well folks, about a month later I can say FOR ME it did. Did it solve all my problems? No, only I can do that, but I feel 100% more motivated and confident that I CAN DO IT.
I would never prescribe anything for anyone, but check it out. You can go online and search 5 signs you will get cancer and it will bring up the infomercial. Watch about a minute, hit your go back key and it will ask you if you really want to leave the site, say no, and then you can read what they talk about in their 48 minute commercial.
For me, I can finally see the light. I plan on finishing strong this year and I know I can, if I will just let myself succeed.

Asked by a Spark friend to copy and paste .....
We could all use these words of encouragement now and then.
Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn't easy.
Just something to think about... did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive?
Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated?
Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most?
Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me.
Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be in.
To all my friends who are going through some issues right now-- let's start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now. If I don't see your name, I'll understand.
May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares.
Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune.

According to Chris Powell who works with the morbidly obese, our bodies burn an average of 12 calories per pound of our weight. Anything below that would bring weight loss. A couple of days ago I weighed 264, so X 12 = 3168. It was a cook out day at work and for whatever reason I ended up eating around 3400 calories. When I weighed the next morning, I was down 1.5 pounds. Next day I also ate on the high end and dropped another pound. My tracker says I should be eating between 2100 and 2400 and I've been plateaued for a month. I won't continue eating that much, but I was kind of shocked. Pleasantly! now we'll see what happens when I go back to eating less!
I need to lose another 12 to get my colonoscopy done at the clinic and not the hospital. Today I'm cooking low fat chicken, shrimp, boiled eggs, fish and lots of veggies for the week. Hoping to make meals of 250-300 calories and eat 5-6 times a day, plus exercise. If that doesn't keep me moving in the right direction I don't know what I'll do......
