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.

    Aloha and Happy new week!

    I'm having a rough time right now, so forgive me for not answering faster. My brother is dying and I'm very sad.

    Hi! *offering you another cup of tea and thanking you for mine*
    I am doing ok, thank you so much for asking. I like SP and hope to journey all the way to my own 50 pound goal with all the beautiful people here, including YOU!
    I am very impressed by your 10,000 books - WOW! And very proud of you for reading instead of snacking. That's a great inspiration for me

    Aloha and congratulations on all of the great book finds.

    I love to find those signed copies, too. I collected Pearl Buck books for a couple of years and need to go back to find some more.

    I bought DH James Michener books for the longest, got most of them signed when he dedicated the college library where we were, but I think my ex d-i-l sold them on ebay while we had them stored at their house during our move.

    Good luck on your book shopping.

    Aloha, Shirl
