Wow! I've been with SPARKPEOPLE and you wonderful people for over 3 years now!...I lost 25 or so lbs. and learned so much about myself. I learned that I can have a lot more control over my choices than I thought I had. I began making better choices over what I ate.
Then my world was shot to pieces on Feb. 6,2010. I had a massive heart attack,died and was brought back . Now I am in end-stage renal desease and spend 3 days a week on kidney dialysis. This will be my life until God takes me home. I've put myself completely in His hands!
My weight is tightly watched so I will know if I'm gaining too much water weight! So far,so good!
I miss you guys,so will be popping in to say 'hello' and see how you are doing!
Take care and I thank you for all the prayers,Mona
I'll post some different photos soon!
