I love to dance. However with no cartliage in both knees this is a problem. There is the possibility of knee replacement in year (2015). I have come to realize that the healthy eating and weight loss is not easy. I have always taken the easy way as far as weight loss was concerned. I have tried everything. I knew that was not the correct way go go about it, but it was what I wanted. When I recently had minor surgery performed on both knees, I came to realize that I needed to face the reality that I had to do something about the weight. Stop making excuses and just do what I know I needed to do. My doctor told me that I did not want to make the effort and do the work. She was correct. So I made up my mind that I would make the effort. With a new year approaching

    Hi Roslyn - I just moved back up here about 2 years ago from Glen Burnie. We had moved back to take care of my mom in her last days. She was in Catonsville.
    For Christmas, my hubby ordered crab cakes from Jimmy's Seafood Restaurant and had them shipped up here!!! What a wonderful surprise! Miss my crabs!
    Take care and God Bless! emoticon

    I will say it again my friend, it is good to have you back!!! So glad you are feeling more like yourself again and are ready to get back into the swing of living healthier. I've missed you here on the team so I hope to see you back more regularly soon. Keep in touch, you can count on my support as long as I see you want it. When people drop off the radar and don't respond to some posts ore messages I just think they need time away from SP for whatever reason they have. I am here tho and am happy you are too. BIG HUGS !!!
