I need to lose 50lbs so that I can have hip surgery and to enjoy the rest of my life.
I enjoy the country life style,books(own10,000 plus)recently downsized. so my books and I now reside in a 10x50 ft mobile home in the high desert of California. I recently retired from the Probation Department after 26 years of working with troubled teens. I love Pine Trees,Books, animals,Books, movies,bingo,books, Indian Casinos,books and more books1I have so many books i had to start selling them on line to support my book habit. My dream is to see a real live moose!,I went to yellow stone in June and all the moose hid from me!
I had double Hip-Replacement surgery .The fright hip April 1st and the second June 3rd.I regained 20 plus pounds staying at my sister's house.I spent most of the time lying on my bed reading.
I had to use a walker and had a lot of trouble getting around.
By October,I was able to walk without a walker or cane.
I started hiking on the local Rez and BLM land.Dirt roads and hills. Last week I walked 3 miles in the Calif.heat.I wanted to vomit and my hips hurt but I did it anyway.Of course I complain the whole time,but I'm proud of myself when the torture is over.
My goal is 6 miles then we will see what to conquer.

    HEY!! You are more than welcome!! I just got off my 1st 12 hour shift will do another one tomorrow. The sweet lady I take care of in her home is not doing well at all. She went on insulin last week and on O2 this past week. She eats pie, cake, cookies anything sweet all the time... I feel so bad for her. She never really got over the death of her husband. I think she has a death wish (just my opinion) but none the less it is very hard to watch, going down hill fast. You are doing terrific with your weight loss!!! Way to go. I am not doing so well YET... Lots of stress right now. Have great night. LaceEjo11 emoticon emoticon emoticon I see you also are a fan of Dancing with the stars!!! emoticon

    emoticon I love the pics on your spark page. You should put a pic of your greyhound on here. I love greyhounds. Used
    to have 2 retired racers. I miss them. I have 2 min pins now. A little easier on my yard. Ha Ha. Please visit my sparks page.
    It looks like you are doing a beautiful job here. Keep up the good work. emoticon
