Getting Healthy and Enjoying Life

This is my second go-round with following an exercise and eating plan and losing weight. I've been heavy ranging to obese most of my adult life. In 2005, I reached my goal weight of 170lbs, but then over the next six years, gained back all the weight I had lost and then some. A bulging disk, spinal spondylosis and arthritis in my back—all leading to some pretty extreme back pain—have taught me that keeping that weight off is not an option; if I want to enjoy life, I need to exercise, carry less ...

This is something I will need to maintain for the rest of my life.

Thanks for informing me what "deviled" means (hot or spicy from the pepper and paprika). I learn something every day !

Spring signals a fresh start or a new beginning - it’s something we all need from time to time.

thanks for the comment on my blog, the bee sting area is alot better today, the arm is still a little itchy and hot, but the pain is gone and the place of the sting itself isnt swollen or infected.
i am still deathly afraid now and we checked around the house and found a nest outside, honey sprayed, which makes me fearful they might try to come inside to avoid the spray, but i went to tractor store and found traps to hang, so I am hoping this helps.
from now on when i see a big red wasp, i am going to run for cover.
