Annie's Journey....

My journey is filled with many of "life's inconveniences" ~ health challenges that are out of my control, eating challenges that I CAN control and exercise challenges that I'm learning to adapt.

These inconveniences add challenges to my day.

Life is not perfect, but if we start the day with a positive attitude and throw in a huge helping of quick wit, the day is bound to improve!

My journey is filled with many of "life's inconveniences" ~ health challenges that are out of my control, eating challenges that I CAN control and exercise challenges that I'm learning to adapt.

These inconveniences add challenges to my day.

Life is not perfect, but if we start the day with a positive attitude and throw in a huge helping of quick wit, the day is bound to improve!

Truth be told ~ my obseity is the symptom, emotional over-eating is my disease and weight-loss is my reward.

Let's gather together with a bit of "spark" and soon we will have a bonfire started. Whether you are leading, walking alongside or gently encouraging from behind....let's make the best effort on this journey, called LIFE.

Take a chance......to make a change........towards better choices.

Update: July 9, 2013
Last November I damaged my Brachial Plexus - Neurosurgeon told me to learn to walk or pick an alternative. From Nov 8th until Jan 23, I received Occupational and Physical therapy to regain strength and get me upright ~ it never happened.

February found out my Osteo-arthritis in my knees were bone-on-bone. In March, the Orthopaedic Specialist told me I would be wheel chair bound - no bi-lateral knee replacements due to Chronic DVT's and the severity of my Lymphedema. Even IF I were a skinny chick, he recommended this surgery NEVER be performed. The risk of infection would be to high.

When I thought life couldn't get any worse....it did! Wayne died in his sleep on April 11th...most days I just want to curl up and die (interesting past time).

Hello and Happy New Year! I know I've been MIA for quite awhile while I've been working on several health issues, but I do still think of you often. I'm hoping to check in more with SP this year and hope we will be able to pick up where we left off. I'm doing a bit better lately so maybe I won't have to use so much energy on my actual health issues and will be able to handle more time on the computer. We'll see. Anyway, I wish you increased health and weight loss and of course as much happiness as you can handle in the new year and beyond.
Hugs,
-Karla
