emoticon First of all, I've just started exercising, hmmmm .... tomorrow will be two weeks. Just a short tidbit :o), I started at 228.5 Lbs ( emoticonnow everyone knows), I have fibromyalgia emoticon (pain 24/7) and I haven't exercised for probably 20 years ( emoticon)....
What "sparked" me to get going, was that my sister just died on Christmas Day, which was very upsetting. I have two brothers left and one of them (my baby brother) told me you need to get healthy.... (and this is what got me... emoticon "I just lost one sister and I do not want to lose the only one I have left"
Well, that did it! Someone actually cared.... emoticon. So he is my "little baby brother coach"... He has always been healthy and he wants to help me. I was touched...... so this is why I joined 'SPARKPEOPLE". To help show me the way and another place to gain knowledge and be accountable to yet another person (persons emoticon.
I'm so happy to be here...... oh, I remember now what I was going to say (fibro-fog emoticon) I've been doing this exercising stuff for two weeks now and finally yesterday I did a 26 min mile and I was SO SURPRISED emoticonthat I "COULD" actually accomplish that in just two weeks time.
I AM PROUD OF MYSELF...... emoticon
My family is so happy, my two boys, their wives, my 3 grandchildren and my two brother!
I'm bound and determined to get this horrible weight off emoticon, be a healthy eater emoticonand be a continuous exerciser emoticon
I'm a happy camper right now emoticon and I can't believe I just wrote all this.....
Until next blog, I guess!

    Go for it! I walked a 5K exactly one year and one month after leaving rehab. I spent months in hospital and rehab and became so weak I couldn't walk at all so I know it can be done. Good luck to you on your new program. (Love your wallpaper).
