Lost touch with this thread!

Bad news is Rosie tore her other ACL. As the vet said said, at least she's run out of ligaments to tear. She's back to full exercise now; went for her first solo run through the snow-covered pasture. I walked a little over half a mile. She went considerably further.

The good news is I've kept my weight below 130 all year so far. Scale said 126, most recently. Lowest I've weighed in years! It's mostly from moderation - less alcohol, less food. Better food. Certainly having been walking much this winter. Iowa is on the southern fringe of the polar vortex thingie and the temps have been brutal. Even Rosie's feet start hurting when it's in the minus teens.

It's been almost 2 years since I last posted on this thread. Am happy to report that I have kept my weight below 130 for this whole time! Was as far down as 121, but now I'm hovering around 123. I've replaced all my pants!

For various reasons I'm not walking for exercise anymore. Now it's mostly done on an old, free-off-Craigslist, stationary exercise bike. I have done as much as 33 minutes while reading book, and later the same day did 23 minutes while working my arms with 3 1/2 lb weights.

We've fenced in about 3/4 of an acre as our backyard, so Rosie doesn't need those walks anymore. The old gal is 11 now and still chases squirrels. She's got a doggie door and doesn't even have to ask to go out anymore.

Hope everyone else is still plugging right along!

That is so great!! I'm happy to hear that. I'm still plugging away. I was having difficulty lifting one of my legs so for the past year I've been working with a personal trainer at a gym I joined. It's been slow and steady and along the way I've taught each trainer I've worked with a little about MS and our challenges. I've finished my contract and didn't renew it but have learned so many new exercises and how they will help me keep myself stronger.

Here I am again. Went looking for this thread to see when I made that vow to keep my weight below 130. Has it really been 5 1/2 years? Wow. Happy to say I'm still on track. Down to 112 this morning. So much flab gone. I don't hold my stomach in anymore. Wearing Junior size 2 jeans.

Bizi, karousel, you folks still around?

I am sooo happy for you!! I'm the opposite - no matter what I do to try to loose weight I just can't. Very frustrating for me. That's why I'm so happy for you to accomplish your goal and stay at a healthy weight.
