After a few years away due to a health problem, I'm starting again with new resolve and determination. My "health problem" involved full hip replacement and in order to be eligible to even be considered for the surgery, I was required to lose 20 pounds. Well, if you've ever lived with 24/7 pain, you'll do anything; so I dropped the 20 pounds by literally starving myself. Seriously. Yeah, I know, it wasn't the right way to do it, but that was the extent of my desperation.

The surgery was a breeze as I had the anterior full hip replacement and I can honestly say the surgery gave me my life back and now that my life is back, so am I. I gained back only 5 lbs. of that initial desperation weight loss and now that I can exercise I'm determined to lose 15 pounds to get to what my surgeon describes as my ideal weight. As an extra incentive, he stresses that keeping the weight off will not only help me be healthier, but it will also be "kinder" to this implant. So, I'm back with incentive and determination. I LOVE this implant!

Personal Information:
Although the stats say I've been a member since 2013, I was actually a drop out but now I'm back with more determination and resolve to get my health back before I turn 70. Since I'm now 67, this will be a three year program to turn things around. The "things" to turn around include my Honey as well! Just trying to navigate this segment of my life; a manual for aging would be good here.

    Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry for the lost of your bestie. How traumatic. Unfortunately only we can make those decisions to better ourselves. She was fortunate to have you. 2018 will be the year. Thank you again and HAPPY NEW YEAR

    If I remember correctly Honey, the recipe was from Barcardi Rum ...think I managed to find it on Pinterest...haven't made it in years but it was good...Morgan's Spiced Rum sounds great.I seem to remember making it with regular strength rum at first, then with 151...better after it sat a couple days also !!! Always nice to find some one else with bionic parts...I drive the metal detectors crazy with mine...lol...take care, Kim
