Let's make this the best JUNE 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. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. The doctor tells me my bone has healed thanks to my Ultra-Sound stimulator, but I still have problems because of the pins, but I'm dealing with that. . 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. "

I've been a Sparker for eleven years. Joined Sparks in October '07. I've five children, 44, 34, 31, 30 and 28. (Four boys/one girl) I have four GDs, Grace Olivia (7), Chanel Ava (7), Lily Dona (7) and Chloe' Renee (5).

    I definitely understand about eating off the kids plate my kids always throwing food away and I use to take off of they're plates! But I've learned to stop and just let them throw it away. We will get better each day I hope u have a great day!

    OH MY!! I'd NEVER attempt to be without my defroster or defogger!! SO VALUABLE here and in many areas. BRAVE woman I dare say she is!!

    Leeds gets more snow than we do. I've considered moving up north more for just that reason!! But, I stay in Southern Maine right on the harbor. I just LOVE my view!! But the ICE in the winter is a killer, sometimes literally. An older friend fell 6 years on the ice, broke her hip. Was recovering well in the hospital, but needed to go pee. She had just woken up they say,,, went to get out of bed (must of been heavily medicated!) Fell ,, and they had just done a bed check a few minutes before (so they said) and she had a heart attack from the pain. She died b4 they found her 15 mins later.
