It's hard to get off the last few pounds and I'm so close. I have hypothyroidism which makes losing difficult so maybe I should maintain as I've been doing and just keep tracking. I'll never be a size 6 again and at my age I'm satisfied with just keeping fit and enjoying life.
Born 1950. I have severe arthritis (since my mid-30's) and have undergone multiple hand surgeries (joint fusions, replacements, etc.) I also had a triple cervical fusion. Now have hypothyroidism. Old age ... gotta love it.
I've been married since 1981 to a great guy; no children. I have two wonderful cats that are the light of my life. Over the years I've always had cats that live to a ripe old age (the two recent losses were 20 years old and 16 years old) and one dog (a Westie) that lived to 16 which was almost unheard of as they usually live only 10-12 years.
I attend a wonderful Church and enjoy my immediate family and friendships.
There is a beautiful saying in India’s ancient Vedic tradition: “If you want to recreate the world, look at it with fresh eyes.” Today have the intention to see one thing as if for the first time. Look without the camouflage of your memories. Sometimes the hardest thing is to truly see someone we have known for a long time, such as our partner, child, or friend. We assume we know who they are, and so we stop seeing. It is also important to look at yourself as though doing so for the first time. We may assume that we know ourselves, but as we are discovering, who we are is much more than our limited ego-mind can envision. Through the eyes of your true self, take a few moments to consider how truly magnificent you really are. Existence, consciousness, bliss. Deepak Chopra
