Thankyou Friday Fences

Stating the obvious........


BUT at the beginning of the year it was a different story,  this fence was in the middle of all the floods.




Thank you to Jan  for starting Fridays Fences, today is FF 1st Anniversary and I'm so, so glad I joined in this wonderful meme. I've really enjoyed visiting all the places and I feel like I've made a whole lot of new friends. Thank you to all of you. For me, not only was it the fun of  looking for and photographing fences, it has been a huge help personally, it brought a little fun into the new challenge i had ahead of me. One year ago today I had to start a newish life, I was diagnosed with diabetes, so a few changes in my daily habits had to be made. Diet had to change a little(a lot), and exercise was introduced!! Today also marked 365 days straight of walking, WOW!! I am really proud of myself, I never thought I could ever accomplish anything like that. I have to thank my friends Sandra and Hermione, without them I would have lost my my way long ago. My phone or camera went with me everyday, just in case there is a new fence or something interesting along my daily walk.
I've also lost some kilos too, bonus!! which has also been great.

Ramona - congratulations on the 1 year walking anniversary! That's a big achievement - so many people make promises to do this or that and never pull through - but you've done it ..... :-)

We have something in common - it was in August this year that I celebrated 14 years without eating any cakes, biscuits, chocolate, fried food etc ...... and it's been about 7? years that I've exercised each and every day. I normally walk but if I'm unwell or it's raining too bad then I use the stationary bike wheels inside. Pledging to do these things "each and every day" is the only way that I can succeed in not eating bad food or staying inside and not exercising ....... and mine was because of medical problems too - chronic hunger 24/7 and chronic fatigue 24/7.

Anyway, congrats and here's to many more anniversaries to come!! :-)
