I want to wish my daughter Melinda in Florida a Happy Birthday.  Hope you have a great day.  Mom

Good Morning everyone, sure hope you are having a good week. I must say I am. I had to share with everyone this morning. You know I’ve told you that I had been setting for 5 years in my rocking chair. I did not like to go to stores and such. Well, let me tell you I had to go out to the bank yesterday and I can’t believe it, I went to 4 stores. And I walked and felt so good. I came home and told hubby, I can’t believe how well my legs and hips are feeling. It was wonderful to be moving. I just want to encourage anyone that is in that place to really try and get up and move. Please try to find some motivation that will let you get up a little and move. Call your city and see if they have a community pool, and start moving.

Tuesday, I had a dentist appointment and I could not go to my regular water walking class, so I decided to wear my bathing suit under my clothes and go afterward. When I got there, not too many people were there and most of them were in the swimming lanes, so I had this great big area all to myself. So, I just walked for 2 hours. It felt so good just to be moving. Then yesterday just walking in stores and not hurting was such a blessing. Please I beg you if you are setting in that chair, get up and move and lose. I would like to thank my children and a special friend for praying for me and encouraging me to continue on this path. Life is full of changes, God brings us here and there, but He has a purpose. I was not really listing to Him when I set for 5 years and really didn’t do much of anything but feel sorry for myself. Remember I told you back at the beginning sometimes we just think of self and what we want for self. I’m sorry that I did that to my children and friends, I should have been living the life that God has given me to live and enjoy. I thank Him for second and third chances and even more than that when we need them.

Well tomorrow is going to be my new weigh in day. So I’m excited and looking forward to see if I lost anymore weight. I sure hope everyone has a blessed day. Just remember lets move and lose
