I am a woman, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Life is full and busy. Setting realistic goals on the road to becoming healthier...I want to be here to enjoy our great family.

Member Since: 9/6/2007

Fitness Minutes: 33,203

My Goals:
I have set aside time to get healthy. It does take time to get healthy but it also takes ENERGY! I would love to have enough energy to do all of the things in life that I enjoy doing.
While my main goal is to get healthier, I think that losing weight will be a lot easier when I feel better. Here is hoping... In losing weight, I may not lose my chronic pain, but I am sure it won't make me hurt worse (smiles).

My Program:
I am getting acupuncture to stimulate my body to do what it needs to do so that I can reach my goals. I am also exercising in the water, in the very warm therapy pool, water. It was easier to start in the water because of all the pain I get from exercise. I have gotten a lot of physical therapy and the PTs advise going very slowly. That is so boring. But, they are right, I must go slowly or the pain is way too much and I end up in a terrible flare. Starting in the pool works better for me because I love the water, it doesn't hurt and I can progress much faster.

    Hey Kabennett, how are you doing? Haven't seen you for a while at the challenge, so just wanted to check in. Hope you're doing well and that your absence is because you've met your goal and have been doing RV travelling all over this past summer!

    Thank you so much for the sympathy bouquet Goodie. It means a lot to me that people are so supportive and caring here on SP. What a wonderful place to be when hurting or freeing great! Thanks my friend. Today was finally a day with only a couple times of tearing up. The hurt hasn't changed but I found myself having met my long term wt. loss goal today. My hubby cheered and we went out for dinner. Something nice really did happen.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog and page. Chaos may be my new normal, but I know that whatever comes up there's a bigger plan at play than mine. Your kind words were most welcome. I wish you well in all your challenges and changes. You do get it! emoticon
