Wow, Donna, Happy Anniversary! That is so inspirational, hearing about your year of maintenance. For sure, one has to learn a lot about oneself to be able to keep the maintenance and not go too far back to old habits.

Do you have any ideas as to why your cholesterol is still high? Are you genetically prone to it?

Congratulations also to all you losers!

I am "taking it easy" today, watching my energy and dealing with the humidity. As such I was not able to exercise and so didn't meet my 7 hours goal. You are right Libby. I really don't pace myself well with the exercise. There is a big discrepancy between my general fitness level and the influence of the MS. I am not very good at juggling that. Walking for an hour in the heat is good for me but it sure doesn't feel good! The only thing that feels good is swimming. Oh well.

Other than that I did well with my goals.
