Hello Everyone,

Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my info.

For the most part of my life I have not had a weight problem. The most I had ever gotten up to was 160lbs. Most of the time I weighed in the 140's.

In 2003 I started having health issues and the weight started jumping on. By November 2012, I weighed in at 299 in my nightshirt. One by one my health issues got me. It was harder and harder to walk because I was in so much pain. I had to leave my job earlier than I had planned.

I had given up and had thoughts of going to a nursing home. Then one day I decided to not give up. I went to Doctor after Doctor, pleading with anyone that would listen, to please help me. Most said I was having problems because I was getting older.

Please don't give me the age card. I KNEW there was something wrong with me. And, I believed in my heart that someone could help me.

I kept on and on and told them (the Doctors), that there is something wrong with me. I begged them to please fix me. I had been to 12 different Doctors. I finally found one that realized right away that I did have a problem.

I am not totally fixed, but I am currently doing physical therapy prescribed by Orthopedic Doc. I am taking prescribed vitamin D and taking Thyroid med.

I am down 30lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Thursday. November 08, 2018

I knew if I would put my mind to this, some more of the weight would come off. It is a slow process, but I do not want to give up.

I can use all of the encouragement I can get. Thanks.

May each of you be blessed, today and always.

    Stopping by with some warm tea to sit and chat. Oh I wish we could. I am tired, tired of the pain, tired of not being able to do all the things I used to do and still like to do. I know you are too. Getting older is no fun. My mind is fine and I think I Will do this today and then I stand up and I know...I won't to this today. Just thinking about you. Hope today is a good one for you. We may have pain and move slower but we aren't ready to quit. not yet. Hugs and smile. We are blessed.

    I asked my Ortho Dr for PT after falling and fracturing my spine. His comment was "Really, you want PT?". Hell yes! I don't want to end up sitting in a wheel chair peeing myself. LOL. PT helps so much. As a nurse I find drs annoying! 😊

    Sounds like a good financial plan!!!! I just bought a new car. I'm calling it my b-day present and last car. I love Subaru Impreza's and think this will be my last car. They go forever and I'm turning 70. I get at least 10 years out of them.

    Hope the journal can help you along the way. I don't have one myself, but many of my spark friends have done this and say it helps them.
