Ok, My story = Well, some of you have been with me for a long time but some of you are new friends. Many of you may not realize my past "glories" (lol) a couple of years ago I lost 98 pounds in one year by exercising and low carb. I was so happy and boy my doctor was happy with me too! Then my Daddy died and my world fell apart. I regained all I had lost and then some. I have restarted my journey as of February 2016. At this point...well I am nearly bed bound, I can barely walk and I must lose weight. my weight at restart is 435 pounds give or take a pound. I really want to do this so that my hubby does not have to be my caretaker anymore.

    Thank you for the kind words and the goodie. I think it would be easier to move on from my mother's passing if we could have her funeral. It was supposed to be on March 26th, but rules for gatherings went into place shortly before that. Now it's scheduled for May 21st, but now we're hearing that we may have to push it back into June.

    I also read your "corner" section; and will try to check in more often to see how things are going w/your surgery & keep you in prayer.

    You gotta look for. . .
    the GOOD in the bad,
    the HAPPY in your sad,
    the GAIN in your pain,
    and what makes you GRATEFUL,
    not hateful!
