My Journey #42 -- Update - 6/9/13 -- BEFORE pictures

Sunday, June 09, 2013

I can't believe this is the THIRD time I've started this blog with before pictures of me. I had a nice message and had all my pictures with captions and I hit a button and lost everything that I had done. What an idiot I am. I am not computer savy like some of you young gals on here!!! But, I"ll try to download or upload or whatever, the pictures AGAIN.

First, my son's little beagle. Love her. Name is LuLu. I have a picture on my Spark Page of my German Shepherd/Malamute who is my big baby. She weighs 120 pounds!!!

This is me standing up. I'm 62 years old and not walking so good anymore so have two canes most of the time. I hope that losing some of this weight will help me to walk better than I am doing right now.

This is a side view of me. Ugh. How about looking at all my pretty geraniums instead. I love to container garden in the summer/fall since I am not able to get into the garden anymore because my balance is so bad from a previous stroke in 2001.

And this is me in my favorite spot on my little front porch where I watch my two dogs when I let them out.

I have one of those electric fences underground so I can sit out there and enjoy my flowers, my dogs and my pretty trees in my yard. And my dogs won't go any further than the edge of the yard because they hear the beep in their collar which tells them they are getting close......they've got it down pat!!

Well folks, "that's all for now".

Oh my, I forgot a very important photo for all my Diamond friends!

Ignore my swelled feet and notice my diamond studded sandals! How about that?

See youall in the chat room!

    "Even the longest journey begins with a single step." And if you need a cane to help you take that step, so be it!

    Keep fighting! I'm glad to see you're still in the game! And always smiling!

    Awesome blog! I know it's hard to look at ourselves from all angles but sometimes it is the nudge we need. Be proud of posting of them. :)

    Your doggies, geraniums and porch are simply lovely!

    Take it slow and just stick with it. Consistency is the key to success.

    Let's ROCK this challenge!

    PS - LOVE the flip flops! emoticon

    Great blog and I would be very surprised it you don't move better after losing the weight, which you will do. Then knees will feel so much better. I heard somewhere that 10 pounds of extra weight but 50 pounds extra pressure on them while walking. My incentive to slim down. The toeless stockings must be so much more comfortable than the ones with toes. emoticon emoticon
