I am married, my husband and I are both diabetic and have sleep apnea. We have 9 kids between us and currently have 5 grandkids. I am struggling with lots of health issues recently (diabetic, sleep apnea, overwieght, stabbing pain in lower right leg with pins and needle sensations, pain shooting through leg when touching just below the knee, bulging discs in lower back) needless to say I have several issues which make it difficult to do exercises to help with the weightloss program.

Over the last 13 months I have lost 54 pounds. I have dropped at least 2 pant sizes and am wearing pants that I haven't warn since sometime in 2006. The pants that I was wearing are so big that they almost fall off me and I can take them off without unbuckling them. I have noticed that my fasting blood sugar numbers have decreased which is a good thing and hopefully can decrease the amount of medicine I am taking for my diabetes. January 2010 weight and measurements are as follows:
weight: 245.2
waist: 44"
hips: 51.6"
neck: 15.5"
BMI: 42.1

    I didn't realize you left me a note, sorry for the delay.
    You are not going to believe this, I was just thinking about Margrit, I have kept her at the top of the friends list and saw her picture. She sure was a fireball, sure she is taking care of business in Heaven, when she isn't fishing! Yes, I know she smiles down on you, you (and hubby) have come through so much.

    Yes, it was great to finally meet you both, again, sorry we couldn't order the monsoons to go away! Sounds like it did not put a damper on the road trip though!
