Hi. I am a 67 years old and have been overweight since 1995. The closest I have gotten to my goal weight of 135 (and maybe lower) was in October of 2018 when I landed at 158. Due to health issues and lack of being able to "get back in the rhythm" I am back to about 185, but don't intend to stay there! Starting the 5% Fall Challenge 2020 is the beginning of the END of this weight!

I had my cataract surgery during the Summer Challenge, and the Prednisolone eye drops that I have had to use daily for the last 5+ weeks has raised my blood sugar. I am cutting carbs but it hasn't brought the blood sugar down where it needs to be. Another 10 days and I will be off of them and I am praying that my blood sugar will return to normal.

Personal Information:
Married 46 years to a wonderful man. We are Christians and my faith is an important part of my life. I would not be the person I am today without Jesus and I am eternally grateful to have been born into a Christian family in a country in which I am free to worship, have my Bible, and practice my faith. I am blessed to live in a country in which our laws are based on the Word of God! We have two grown children, 6 grands and a great-grand. Love to cook. Also sew, knit, crochet, cross stitch and do crafts. Read. Play piano, saxophone, and accordion. Write music, prose, and poetry. Had a very hard time when the kids left the nest. Took 13 years for me to get over it. Gained this weight when I got something called Lichen Planuscaused by an antibiotic called Cipro that destroyed all of my gut bacteria


Other Information:
My true highest beginning weight was 227 in Feb of 2011. Somewhere I think there is a picture of me then. If I can find it, it will be my Before Picture. My fasting blood sugar was 116 at my highest weight. Lost 20 pounds in 4 months by just watching my portions but my blood sugar didn't change. Went on Atkins and in 3 days my fasting blood sugar was 98. I stayed on it from June 1 2011 until mid October lost 37 more for a total of 57 pounds lost but then ate a piece of birthday cake (though I didn't crave a thing) and fell way off the wagon.. Got off Atkins and gained 20 back. I have been rocking back and forth with those 20 or 30 pounds for years and now it has to stop! UPDATE! IT DID STOP! I lost 42 pounds from Jan 1 2017 to the end of Sept. and my A1C dropped to 5.2

    Thanks for the Thanksgiving message. After sitting out several seasons of the five percent challenge I got on the starfish team this time. I do miss some of you guys on the RRebels. Good to hear from you my friend.

    Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
    It turns what we have into enough, and more.
    It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
    It can turn a meal into a feast,
    a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
    Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
    and creates vision for tomorrow.

    There will always, always, always be something to be thankful for.
    Be thankful for what you have & you will end up having more.
