I'm a 68 year old married male who lives in New Hampshire.

BTW, "Boppy" is what my Grandson started calling me when he was 2 years old. He's now 12. He dubbed, my wife, Beth, "Mimi", about the same time. He still calls us by these names, today. And, so we shall both be known by the family ...

Pet peeves: censorship and wading through religious blather (pardon the redundancy) to get to any topic!

I had reached a goal weight of 180, had a succession of surgeries (shoulder/arm, abdominal wall, back), started weight lifting again, raised my goal weight to 185. Then I had new problems with my other shoulder/arm, and back, and had to stop weight lifting and some other exercises. I've lowered my goal weight again to 180, and am adjusting to the new required caorie budget reduction -- especially sinve much exercise is off the table, again.

    I borrowed this from another Sparker (SHARON10002), and decided to share with my SparkFriends as these are great thoughts for February:

    F - Forge ahead no matter how small the step.
    E - Each new day offers the chance to start anew.
    B - Believe in yourself and all that you are, and wish to be.
    R - Remember the reason why you started this journey.
    U - Unless you move, the place where you are is the place you will always be.
    A - A bad day is only as bad as you let it be.
    R - Roll with life's punches, and rise again.
    Y - You are loved . . .

    Our relationship with ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive, and love ourselves is reflected back to us in all our outer experiences and relationships.
