I need to lose 50lbs so that I can have hip surgery and to enjoy the rest of my life.
I enjoy the country life style,books(own10,000 plus)recently downsized. so my books and I now reside in a 10x50 ft mobile home in the high desert of California. I recently retired from the Probation Department after 26 years of working with troubled teens. I love Pine Trees,Books, animals,Books, movies,bingo,books, Indian Casinos,books and more books1I have so many books i had to start selling them on line to support my book habit. My dream is to see a real live moose!,I went to yellow stone in June and all the moose hid from me!

I had double Hip-Replacement surgery .The fright hip April 1st and the second June 3rd.I regained 20 plus pounds staying at my sister's house.I spent most of the time lying on my bed reading.
I had to use a walker and had a lot of trouble getting around.
By October,I was able to walk without a walker or cane.
I started hiking on the local Rez and BLM land.Dirt roads and hills. Last week I walked 3 miles in the Calif.heat.I wanted to vomit and my hips hurt but I did it anyway.Of course I complain the whole time,but I'm proud of myself when the torture is over.
My goal is 6 miles then we will see what to conquer.

    Thank you for coming by and supporting me on my blog,"slipping and sliding". I hope you continue to do well on your journey to a more healthy life style. I lived in California most of my childhood and early adult life. There is a lot to do. Walking the hills and anywhere outdoors is wonderful. I also read a lot. I don't even know how many books I have. Have a Great Sunday.

    Thank you for your comment. We went to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons in 2010 and did the Cascade Canyon trail in the Tetons. A bull moose literally walked right up on us on the trail - nothing but a tree between me and him. It was July and he was in velvet and very docile. He went on straight down the hill and off the trail. A mile or so down there was water and we saw 5-6 more including some calves with mamas. It was amazing. I would recommend that hike if you are ever up that way again.
