And now that spring may be in the offing, I'll be walking.
Good game plan Shanny!

Congrats on how you've done with your first year. I'm new on the board, having been diagnosed 1/7/2011. I admit its been a very up and down month, and this board has been invaluable. It was good for me to read how well you have done.

I'm so far behind on reading posts... Way to go Eric. You have definitely been an inspiration to me. Not only the sustained way you pursue your health - but also the honesty on bad days. It makes me feel not so lonely with this disease. Thanks.
