I got back home today from my younger sisters.
I had a wonderful time,
visited with her boys, fiance, and her best friend.
Had a very nice time.
I have to admit I was a bit discouraged because I weighed myself
and the numbers had stayed the same.
But I talked myself out of feeling blue about it because,
so many people are telling me Cindy you look so good,
What have you been doing,
Your like night and day to last time I saw you.
So it really is a wonderful feeling,
The other thing I am feeling is that I am saving my life just from walking and becoming more active.
This pass week is the first time I have not had to take Stanley with me.
for those of you who do not know whom Stanley is.
I named him because I had to take him with me.
I have to say proudly that I have retired Stanley the cane,
as I can walk better and am trying not to lean on him for support.
I really wish I could describe the feeling of knowing that my world is opening up again for me.
So long has been spent in my house, eight long, long years.
some days filled with hope, some where I had to think
This is a good as I am right now,
I had days being told I may never get any better than I was.
It is amazing how becoming dedicated every day on my treadmill
has changed my life.
I have more oompf, I am happier, I am more limber,
I am building my strength again, Clothes are fitting better,
I can lift my feet without feeling weighed down,
I no longer feel that every step takes most of my energy,
I am living every day healthier and happier,
Truly I am having my Very Best Days.
They are not perfect, but I know only with hard work will they be.
Goal now that I am back at home.
build to 15 minutes on treadmill,
increase water intake,
When I turned 39 I thought my life was coming to an end
as the doctors tried to figure out what I had,
Now I know it in some way has been a blessing,
as I face new challenges everyday,
and I am beating my limitations,
and one day I know there will be fewer limitations.
How do I know this,
because I am a fighter, a believer, a doer,
and never ever a quitter.
I hope you all find your inner strength,
and be in charge of your life.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Until next time,
