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 36 lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Sunday, October 10, 2020

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.

    Your attitude determines your direction. Stop doubting yourself. Work hard, plan ahead, and make it happen! Don't settle. Be a rebel.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I am fearing that this pandemic will lead to a reduced work force in my non-profit world, and I would be outta there at 68 and no real prospects. Yikes, there is so much to project that it gives me the jitters. It is time to calm down, Self!
    Have a great day!

    emoticon Your GGD is a Pisces with a Moon in Pisces meaning she will be a very sensitive child, who will want to help the downtrodden and bring home every stray cat/dog. Pisces has to watch out to not become a 'doormat" since a kind loving heart can be taken advantage of by those who are "users". She can be a fine artist or musician so guide her interest. Don't let her watch negative TV or movies as Pisces "absorbs" what is around and she can become 'down" if it isn't positive. With a Pisces Sun and a Pisces Moon this makes her even more so in all these areas. Pisces can be a healer. I wonder if the parents will have some strife, as she has several signs in Capricorn, which can give a child a harder life, and make the child need to take on more responsibility at a young age. Pisces have sensitive feet, so they must be cared for, so buy shoes that fit comfortably.. Rub her feet and she will relax and rest well.
