Can you believe that one month from today is Christmas Eve? Where has the year gone?

This has been a good year. I've lost more than 20 lbs and am only 10 lbs. from my goal of 150. My virtual walk the length of Britain is on track to be completed by the end of the year, in spite of my cataract surgeries this month. I am already planning my next walk, which will follow the pilgrim's trail across Northern Spain.

Can you believe that one month from today is Christmas Eve? Where has the year gone?

This has been a good year. I've lost more than 20 lbs and am only 10 lbs. from my goal of 150. My virtual walk the length of Britain is on track to be completed by the end of the year, in spite of my cataract surgeries this month. I am already planning my next walk, which will follow the pilgrim's trail across Northern Spain.

Our youngest daughter was married in May, and they are expecting their first child just in time for their first anniversary.

I am down 32 lbs. from when I started the program, and I will keep Sparking for the rest of my life, because I know that I cannot go back to the way I used to eat.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and support each other through the ups and downs of our lives. I could never have done this without you... a very sincere thank you.

Gail, we lost our power for just under 2 hours on Wednesday evening... I always call the power company within moments of the outage.. register my outage location on their automated system.... I then get an automated verification when they believe my power has been restored. I keep telling people that their report just might be the only one from their neighborhood...or for us out in the sticks... the only one on their power feed line. Why is it that people think that the power company will know where the problems are when people do not give them the necessary clues?!

Maybe we get along well because we are so far apart (geographically) !!
to my actress friend,

Gail, Thanks for stopping and reading my blog "Mockingbird Hill", I was spoiled by my mom. She loved to sing, said it kept her happy. She had such a positive influence on my life. She sang all those the songs as they came on the Hit Parade. I remember them all. That song makes me feel happy. Hugs Pat.

Both DH and I had cataract surgeries. We both need new glasses. I am hoping DH will be able to get new glasses, alas with his macular degeneration his vision change about weekly.
Thanks for commenting on my blog. I have been less tired but my body is aching at every joint.
When I walk the aches go away but when I sit to type I hurt after 15 minutes.
I keep blaming the Flu shot but it came on. so late it is weird. I am planning a trip with 2 friends if we have no snow tomorrow. I am hoping there is no snow. If snow flies It will be cancelled it is just a fun thing. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I know this must be hard on you. I knew about bending and lifting and any straining but there seems like you should be able to walk in place and do some easy upper and lower body exercises. Did you check out the exercise library on SP? But I know you will do well and before you know it will ne back to your usual self. Hugs dear friend. Hang in there.
