Let's make this the best JUNE ever. Let's use all 30 days to make improvements. This is my 13th 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 10# 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. . I'm continuing to exercise daily. I find Robert Cywes M.D. on Youtube has interesting talks on weight loss, auto-immune diseases, and Type 2 Diabetes.
�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.)

    Just sayin'... I'm not at all bitter (nor do I need anyone apologizing for me), just sad, even as I plan for the future. I certainly do not need anyone telling me how to be grateful. I'm going to be fine and will land very well. However, there are a great many people who are terribly lost and upset, and it is not kind, supportive or helpful for others to tell them how to feel, or express themselves. They are entitled to their own process. The rah rah people are showing a great deal of insensitivity and judgment to those who are struggling. My comment is in support of them.

    You've had a remarkable journey here at SparkPeople! I commend you on all of your success and I wish you all the best going forward.

    I must not have been notified of your blogs. Have checked it out now.
    Thank you. I'll check them out. I think I might go with Fitbit or MY Fitness Plan.
    I have found I lost weight with them as they have Australian brands which makes
    tracking easier.

    Thank you for the Goodie Jibbie. I am sad that Spark is closing for non Americans.
    Would love to stay in touch from time to time. Send me an email with your email address.
    the weather is still pretty good in the sub tropics. Most days I can still get by with a light
    cardigan. I don't even own a heater. It's a lovely change from the long, humid summer,

    Stay safe. emoticon emoticon
