I have been on SparkPeople since June of this year. Almost four months. It has been quite a learning experience! I have gone from physical therapy for ten minutes to now 55 minutes of chair exercise. I have learned how to blog and to track food and exercise. Just learning how to read the site was an accomplishment. However, most of all, I have made many Sparkfriends. So much positive support and caring comments!! Joining SparkPeople was the best decision I could have made.

I have been on SparkPeople since June of this year. Almost four months. It has been quite a learning experience! I have gone from physical therapy for ten minutes to now 55 minutes of chair exercise. I have learned how to blog and to track food and exercise. Just learning how to read the site was an accomplishment. However, most of all, I have made many Sparkfriends. So much positive support and caring comments!! Joining SparkPeople was the best decision I could have made.

I am 62 (soon 63). I have diabetes, neuropathy, retinopathy, kidney disease, heart failure and cirrhosis of the liver. I have balance problems and fall, quite a lot actually. I had become my diseases. I had given up my horse riding, my gardens and other enjoyments.

Now, though I am still in my wheel chair, I have been moving more. Spending more time with my daughters and my grandchildren. They are such a pleasure in my life.

As I continue on this journey, I have regained some time in my garden, continued my quilting, sewing, knitting and crafts. I have begun voluntary simplicity. Going through my home and removing all the collections of 'things' that I really have no use for. As a result, I am constantly going through 'tubs'. Passing on to my children items that they would have gotten anyway. It is lifting a burden of possessions from my back.

I have found my spirit again and relish the time I am able to spend on Scriptures. My faith has been renewed and I am moving forward.

Good Monday Morning! Krys here, stopping by to wish you a week full of good choices, exercise, and ounces and ounces worth of crystal clear water. How are things going for you this colorful month of October? Here in Florida, the weather has been bouncing between the low 90's and the mid 80's which is pretty typical for this time a year. Do you have any fall festivities planned for this month? My family and I are always very involved in Halloween and fall festivities so I have not been Sparking as much as I would like. The first costume party occurred this weekend and was very enjoyable, I posted some pictures of me and my husband in costume. Even in my absence, my family of Sparkers is never far from my thoughts, so I wanted to send you some "you can do it" motivation and check in.

I am cheering for you!

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I did snuggle up with hubby but it took me all night to get warm.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
