Kim and I have been good friends for quite a few years now. I love her wonderful attitude on life. I also have several wonderful pieces of art that I've received through trades with her. I am inspired daily by her art each time I walk past one of my treasured trades with her. Click on the link in the title of this post to visit her delightful blog.
Today she has issued a challenge for herself on her blog about losing weight. Losing weight for her health, to rid herself of pain, and to feel good about the way she feels in her clothes. I NEED to do the same thing for all the same reasons. I've eaten healthy most of my life. I take good care of myself, although I don't exercise as much as I should. I have Arthritis in the facet joints of my lower back. I also have it in my wrist and hands. My doctor told me the same thing as hers... I need to walk to be more pain-free. I need to eat better because I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol. So I'm taking the challenge with Kim. I'm going to report here every week on my progress. I'm posting this to keep myself accountable.
