LOVE , LIVE And LAUGH OUT LOUD , hi I am just a single mom on my late 50''s plus , trying to find myself in this new journey taking one day at the time , I joined SparkPeople on September 10 / 2012. I thought I was doing well , and I was ... I thought I was on my way of living healthy ; and for awhile I was ...! I was doing great and all the sudden life happened!!! and I gained all those stubborn pounds and weight back !!! So here I am one more time trying my best to get back on the saddle or wagon and dust myself up and start again , slowly and steddy ... Oooops did I forgot to mention I had an accident and I hurt myself ad to that physical and emotional pain rollercoaster !!! But my will is strong and like Gloria Gaynors said I will survive !!!! And here I am now , it''s May of the year 2015 , dusting myself up one more time dealing with osteoarthritis , been a caretaker , for an elderly parent and dealing with all that life throws at me , but instead of feeling defeated and overwhelm and feeling sort because I''m overweight , I''m taking baby steps , I''m taking one day at the time , I''m putting one foot in front of the other I''m taking those steps one at the times, I''m concentrating in taking care of my body and keeping a positive outlook . I feel blessed and I know the road ahead is bumpy and it''''s not easy but I know I have to try I mustn''t given up without a fight .., I have osteoarthritis ; osteoarthritis doesn''t have me ..., that''s going to be my mantra ... Working on keeping healthy , strong , energize and flexible as much as I possibly can .... Reaching out for my goals .... Wish me luck and pray that if I stumble and fall that I will get back up again more determine than before ..... April 17 , 2016 Well it has been awhile since I have post any updates about my journey, I am still struggling with my balance , but I am not giving up one day I know my balance is going to be better than what is right now , I got my fat yoga video and my walking sticks and I am ready to start again May 29 2015 Update . As I sit here today re starting my goals of getting strong and healthy . as I struggle with pain and my meds sabotaging my efforts of dropping this weight that I know I did not put on over night I know I put it on little by little ... I have become more relax on my approach to walking more and finding myself , this time I am not throwing in the towel , or going back to my old habits of sel-medicating myself with food ...This time I am doing this again , I am starting from the begining setting my goals . doing mini goals and doing mini challenges with myself , I am learning to love and accept myself as I am here , been happy is a state of mind and acceptance of myself ... Putting my goals out in the open ... I will do an update soon... Update . as of July 27 /2015 I went down to 205 pounds and I did found out I am pre diabetic , pre hypertention ( n0 on meds for that thank God .I am on a low sugar low carbs approach diet ) I have Spinal Stenosis and due to IVs and new meds I gained the pounds I worked so hard to dropp and burn I am back at 213 pounds but I am not giving up on getting healthy and burning fat ..... 8/25/2015 I am down to 207 pounds I haven't change my will of losing fat and gaining a strong body . I have balance and movility issues but I am incorporating exercise again on my daily routines I am back at walking sometimes with a walker , some times with the help of a cane and some days I walk without either one , and I know I need to do stretches . my goal now is to be able to tied my shoes , right now I can only tie my right foot my left I need help with that , but I am a fighter and I will work hard to get to my goal before the year ends . My doctor has gave me new meds for pain and so far I feel relief from pain ,I am not pain free and I don't know if i ever be pain free but I have faith and hopes that one day I will be more flexible and I will walk much better that what I am walking today ... Thank you for reading , wish me luck and pray for me ... I will update again when I can ... God bless you and keep moving , because if I did so can you ... Laugh out loud without cares , Live every moment with enjoyment and gusto Love yourself today and now and never ever stop believing in you !

Happy Valentines Day and God Bless, hope your day is blessed!

And you enjoy the following Valentine Poem! emoticon

You Are Often In My Thoughts

Love is a command
That Christians are called to do;
Our Lord says "Love your God,
And love your neighbor, too."

Some people are easy to love;
They are human rays of sun;
They light up every life,
And encourage everyone.

You are in that group,
So I sincerely want to say:
You are often in my thoughts;
Happy Valentine's Day!
