So it begins or does it end this way. Life can evolve around circles or we can make changes that will really change it. Decided a long time ago to stop the circle. In doing so I've created a new, bigger, & better circle. A circle that can expand or get smaller. It all depends on what is transpiring in life at the time.
You are in control of your destiny. If you decide you're to scared to take the chance to change it... it will remain the same. If you decide to make the changes necessary to your health & well being, do so with plans.
Create a separate account, in a different bank. Make sure it's safe & secure & your info won't be devulged except to those you designate. Put things aside that you need, papers, personal items, decide if you have to leave quick that you have those things where you can get to them quickly. Don't look back. Look forward. Remember it's time to take charge of your life. Good luck & good wishes to you.

Wait awhile! Things change. Life happens even when we slow down to take a deep breathe. Life is still moving. Are you doing anything to improve, to feel better about you? We have joined a gym. While the weight is slowly coming down, the shape is being redefined. Muscles weigh more than fat. Muscles work better than fat. This was not a New Year's Resolution. This to me was a life changing for the better decision. Who knew that by going to the gym 3x a week, you'd have more energy. More get up & go. Where as before my get up & go, slowed down to get up.. ok sit down again.
Amazing that that change was not expected. We wear a "fit bit" on the wrist. It gives the amount of steps you take.. that includes when using the equipment at the gym. The "fit-bit" was a birthday gift from our son. It's encouraging because it keeps tabs. When you think nothing is happening .. then you look at "fit bit" on the dashboard & WOW! Just got an award for waling 50miles. Really you just don't realize that you've done that. It's a great feeling. (10 min up ).

Nicely said Irish! Since being in the hospital the first of the year I can say that I lost my get up and go. My sit back stay warm and nap however is working just fine! You may laugh but I have had whole days pass me by and not notice that that is just what I have done. I know this is not good for me or my heart but still that has how it is right now. People I live with tell me it's normal but for some reason that doesn't seem right. Not when my heart doctor tells me everything looks good and what I need to do to keep it that way. So, I get up every day and vow to do more and some days I actually do and other days I make it from bed to the livingroom and back and very little else. I'm tired all the time and my meds make it worse. I don't want to make it seem like I'm complaining but I am worried and just can'r find it in me to talk to the ones I live with. Not sure if it's been 10 minutes or not but I do know it feels better to have this written down.

crazymomma, try keeping a journal. It's not always easy to do. But if you write a little each day , you will see some changes along the way. It's ok to take a step back, just remember to try & take two steps forward each time you can. That way you're making progress. Even if it's a little at a time. Any progress is better than not making any. So keep it going. We all have days that are tougher to step forward than others. So long as you keep in touch with your doctor, follow his/ her directions... you are doing the right thing. Good luck & keep us posted. We care.

So anyway, what the heck is happening? Wish I had the answers. Don't. Hope it picks up soon. Hmmm!
Incredible I'm watching Ellen whom I think is an amazing woman. She has such a dynamic personality, & a wonderful giving nature.
Yes, a completely change of conversation. The other one I had no more to add to it at this point.
Hope everyone is well. That the reason they are not in here is because real life has taking over. We have been going to the gym appox 3x a week. Haven't had a big weight loss, but the inches are coming off. That in itself is a major step in the right direction. Can we say YEAH! We can we can & we did. It's exciting, have more energy, more good vibes, & most importantly feel a lot healthier. It was the right time to step up to the plate, and begin a new journey.

Yeah Irish!! Remember muscle weights more than fat so they say keep track of the inches.
Ellen is ok. I'm not much into tv lately. But I do LOVE my nook!! Keep up the good work!!
As for me well this weekend has been a little warmer here in central New York so, I feel better. Lots of sun and temps in the upper 30's to mid 40's. I'm ready for spring! speaking of spring did everyone here on the east cost remember to "spring" your clock a head?
