The other day, I was chatting with my daughters about my physical therapy and that it was going well. I commented that I had told the therapist my goal was to be able to cook a full Thanksgiving dinner. He said OK if I didn't try to lift the bird.

I told my kids I'd cook if they agreed to come for dinner. They agreed to come for dinner and to help cook. I have been exercising like a fiend ever since. I'm always happiest when they are here to share a holiday with me.

I have to also appreciate the fact that SO is making a big sacrifice as Thanksgiving has never been a holiday she liked and she's diving in to do what she can.

Andy, sounds like you may have the best Thanksgiving ever.

I wish regular exercise showed improvement as quickly as physio exercising does. Then it would be easy to keep up the motivation.

I've been drinking low fat milk with cinnamon every night for about a week now and since I started doing it my bloodsugar is normal. I know cinnamon is good for diabetics, wonder if this is the reason why? haven't taken any meds for 2 days either and still I'm fine :)

You are right about that!

I can see almost immediate improvement when I do the flexibility exercises. My range of pain-free motion is growing daily.

Too bad I can't watch certain centrally located parts shrink daily when I exercise. It would be a great incentive to continue.

Mammogram turned out perfect, no lumps or anything that shouldn't be there.
