I am a 45 year old married woman with grown children. I have a genetic kidney disease and am now in stage 5 renal failure. I am on dialysis now and so much happier! The weight is melting off. I have been on dialysis for about one month and have lost 17 pounds! I know that it will slow down but I always maintained that I was not eating too much and was going to the gym to exercise but still mu weight ballooned to 310 no matter how hard I tried. My team is taking off about 3 Kilograms each dialysis session and so I leave 2 pounds lighter twice a week and feel good.
I really dreaded dialysis so badly but did not realize how tired I was of fighting and sick I was from the toxin build up. I am able to do a little more each week without being out of breath and it is a treat!
I have a wonderful, beautiful husband with whom I am still so in love with, and we have 4 grown children(blended family).

My Goals:
I just want to lose some weight to make the renal failure and dialysis not so tough on my body.


My Program:
Dialysis diet. Low sodium,potassium,and phosphorus foods. Try to stick to 1800 calories a day. I was told to keep the protein to 6 0zs. a day so most of my protein is in the form of tofu,beans,chicken,fish.



Personal Information:
I am 45 and am in stage 5 renal failure. My kids are grown so my time is mine and my husband's. I love music,gardening, playing with our 3 Pugs and learning about lots of new things. I am currently studying herbology and experimenting with making my own lotions and potions and growing my own herbs for cooking.
