This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Sunday, November 5, 2017 – Sweet rest is what I’m doing right now. Trying to be kind to myself. I’m a side sleeper. They tell me after surgery I will have to sleep on my back for at least six weeks. That’s going to be tough but I will do it. I want to make sure everything goes accordingly, right. Miles Moved: -0-
