Don't worry about the cliches and if water aerobics is too early then make your own. Swimming laps is great exercise, I know it is hard to go alone but you will be surprised, if you keep at it you just may make a friend or two. You will not be the only one not included in a cliche. Sometimes we just have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones and just do it! Like Geana said, baby steps, don't try to do everything at once. Maybe you swim a little one day and then take a walk the next.

I envy you being able to be in the sun and heat for the winter. That is our dream for someday. But we will have to actually move - no snowbirding for us. Try baby steps with your weight: less of what you normally eat, only nourishing things into your mouth, lots of water. And you are in the pool already so you can do your own water aerobics by using a paddle board or just hanging onto the side and lifting your legs. And walking would be good if you are able. Just some thoughts! Good luck with this journey that we are all on. emoticon

Punky is a chi, though many think he is a papillon because of the hair on his ears. He is a long haired chi.

Welcome back!

Oh Cookie, Looks like you have a chihuahua or Papillon. I have a chi - Carmelita. I wrote a couple weeks ago, before we left, that we were going to Snowbird it. Went from ID to AZ & here we are... it's 88 out. I feel LUCKY to be able to do this at 60 BUT the older residents are all fit. I feel like the fattest person here. Have gone in the pool just about daily because it's the only place I don't hurt. Boyancy in the water makes you feel so much better. At first I said hi to everyone I walked by but now I notice cliques like last year (went to a different resort
last year). Husb doesn't want to go in pool with me. So I go in alone. Aerobics are 7 AM & that's too early. We're in a small RV & the shower is impossible so I shower down at the compound around 8 or there's no hot water. Haven't been online because there is no i'net at the sites, only in the main compound. Anyway, I lost 90, gained it all back & now feel like I'm trapped in a sumo wrestler fat suit, waddling round in the heat. Hope to meet some pals online. Thought of going to OA but I got sick of that after 8 yrs. Hello to all who have to start over yet once again.
