I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

    We don't know what the spells are, I come close to passing out and it is happening a lot. It has actually gotten to where it is keeping me from doing a lot of things. We've run several tests and nothing shows up. I think it is associated with the migraines I have been having, but not even really sure about that since they don't happen at the same time. Mostly I've tried not to whine about it, and not say much about it, so that's why you didn't really know.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've been watching you and you are staying so consistent in your exercise and stuff. I like seeing that, so keep it up. Thanks again for thinking of me.

    Ho Gail, I have been off and on SP, mostly off this month. But I did not realize my settings are set to private. Need to figure out how to change that. Thanks for reaching out, it's been a tough couple of months and I am hoping that February will be the month that I get back on track again. emoticon
