Let's make this the best FEBRUARY ever. This is my 11th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 20# to go yet. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June last year, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. The doctor tells me my bone isn't healing so I now have a Exogen Ultrasound Stimulator to wear 20 min. a day. . I'm continuing to exercise daily.
�In all labor there is profit; but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury� Prov 14:23 (Don't be mad about the results you didn't get, because you only talked about it and didn't do the work it required.)

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

In "The Power of NOW" Eckhart Tolle teaches us to live for today. If we do that, all the days of the year will add up to our success. "
