Dearest Pam: I am so sorry for you and for your sister. What a terribly frightening time. Thank goodness she is beginning to feel better. But you, you take care of yourself too. I know, easier said than done, but it is so important. Caregivers so often become ill themselves because of the stress and the work. So, please, make sure you get some rest. emoticon Please don't take offense. This is just the repressed Jewish Mother in me coming out. I'm sure you know all about what you need to do to take care of yourself. And I'm sure that it ain't easy.

Now, also, I want you to know, you have absolutely nothing to apologize about. Not one thing. I was just thinking of you. I enjoy it whenever you have the time to check in. Please don't feel bad about your absence though.

Have you ever heard about doing BodyFlex in the car? It may be just the boost of energy. What I do (when I remember to do it) is grip the steering wheel and pull on it with all my might as I breathe out, breathe in, and then expel a body/flex breath and hold as you keep pulling on the steering wheel, pull my stomach in and then release the strong grip (of course hold on for safe driving) as you breathe in.

You can also work different muscles in your arms and push in the steering wheel with all your might.

Now - you might be self conscious. emoticon It's always best to not do this at a stop light with people on either side of you. LOL.

So Pam, you are always always emoticon here. We miss you, but we sure understand.

Hi Rosalie, Sorry I haven't kept in touch. My sister had open heart surgery on Dec 1. I have been running to hospitals, hotels, and now a Nursing home. WHEW! I am getting very tired to say the least. I do come on Spark People. Read notes, blogs, check out my teams. But usually to tired to write anything. I appreciate all of your notes and replies. We were hoping sis could come home tomorrow, but something else has come up. I'm afraid it may be a little longer. Please forgive me for not stopping by as often as I was. This thing has been going on since April. I'm just getting a little weary. Hope to be back, bouncing so hard you can't catch me. ha ha. emoticon

Hi Pam: I'm just wondering how you're doing? Are you still seeing great results with BodyFlex? I really need to make it part of my every day routine. Would love to hear how things are going generally for you. emoticon

Pam!!!!!!! You are emoticon I am so happy to hear that you're having such great results. How encouraging for all of us.

Have you been measuring yourself too? Greer is real big on the inches going down even if the weight doesn't right away. But you're definitely losing weight!!!!!

This is strange - You want to get the Original, and I want to get the New. LOL, I just checked my weight, I'm down 6 pounds in 6 days. And you can look at my nutrition tracker, I haven't really change my eating. I'm finding I'm not as hungry. So I'll stay with these a little while longer and see what else happens. See you lighter...........

Hi Pam:

I think that I'm going to buy the original BodyFlex video tapes on ebay. I bought the Abdonda Breathing series, Greer's newest, and I have some buyer's remorse. She's still great, and of course it's nice to be rid of the '80s spandex and super huge hair, but the marketing bugs me. Without wanting them, new stuff arrives every month - so I'm going to have to call and cancel and mail back the stuff that's been coming. I just want to have a couple of basic exercises and I want to be led through the breathing. So, this is just a head's up about the new stuff and a congratulations about using the original.

I'm sorry that you suffer from so many challenges. I hope BodyFlex is helping you in every way.

All my best, Rosalie

emoticon I have had these videos since 1998. At first I did pretty good, I know these work as long as I put forth some effort(not very much either). Even now, sometimes I actually watch them. Well, I am glad I found others that believe in these also. I have Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Disk Disease, Osteo-arthritis. I also learned I have osteophytes (arthritis) growing on my spine. I recently found out I have them on my rib cage. I also just had minor GYN surgery, so no gym and no pool. I think I will be able to do these in my bedroom when I first wake up. I am getting psyched now, gotta go do 'em!
