I am tired of this slow steady weight gain. My activities are limited by arthritis and degeneration of my spine and neck. I am finally back to walking and doing some very slow stretching .I do not want to sideline myself again .

Things to think about :)

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.
Mary Anne Radmacher

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

    My family isn't as spread out as yours. I have a Niece and her 6 kids who live in No. Calif. I haven't seen them for ages. In fact, I haven't met her youngest. 2 girls. Nieces who live in Orange County. My oldest Sister moved about a hour south of me about a year ago after her Husband died. They did live near Yosemite for years. Another Sister lives in Victorville, and the Sister I grew up with lives in Boise. Her Son lives there as well. My oldest Sister has a Daughter that moved near Boise. Laurie's kids moved there, so Laurie and her Hubby sold their house, and moved. A lot of people are leaving Calif. Kind of sad. Hope your having a good day!

    Our group derived from the Rookie Team, which they started last Fall. The Rookie Team was started for first timers to the 5% Challenge. Then we promoted up to the Warriors. Most of us decided we wanted to stay with that team.

    Where does your Mom and Daughter live? Same state? My family is all over the place lol.
