Here I Go Again...Again!

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have lost enough weight over the years to lose me at least three times. At 58 years of age I have become weary of the struggle.

I just said to my son the other day that once the calendar clicks over to Spring it should be a rule that we HAVE to have nice weather through the summer right into November (maybe even December) AND it can only rain at night!! I'm not asking for too much right? We thought if we could always have nice weather when we are suppose to have nice weather that would at least make the winters a little more bearable. Then when they are over, they are over and it wouldn't still be snowing in April!! emoticon emoticon
Anyway, I appreciate your kind comments, and I love it when I have it a nerve and other people know exactly what I am talking about. It's so nice to know we are not alone and we have good friends to reach out to that are on this journey with us. emoticon

Thanks so much for the goodie. I was surprised to see your congratulations on my fitness points. I didn't know I had crossed that many minutes. The beauty of it is (which should be encouraging to you) is that mostly all of it is simply walking. I have walked in sun, ice, snow, rain, whatever, but to me at least it's not hard and it really is a great workout. I have arthritis in both of my knees and I think since I have been walking my legs have gotten stronger and they don't hurt as much. It's just proof that you don't have to be a maniac in the gym doing all kinds of ridiculous workouts to be fit. Any kind of movement is great and the more you do it the better you get and it and you get stronger. Thanks for being a spark friend. I always feel empowered knowing that there are people sharing this journey with me. It's so hard to do this alone but when there are other people who care and are there to support and encourage us it makes the journey that much more pleasant. emoticon emoticon emoticon
