Hi-I'm Beckie. Like so many others....I'm on a life-long journey to lose weight and be healthy.

SInce I turned 50---my weight has kept creeping up , no matter what I was doing. I was at the highest I have EVER been in my life. I had no energy, the inflammation in my feet & legs was out of control & I just felt awful every day.

Then last February I quit smoking ( 2/14/15), & had a cough--so 2 days later went urgent care for checkup/xray. Well, their x ray machine was down, so had to go to the hospital--& was then admitted with Pneumonia.

When I got discharged-they had me on oxygen 24/7. I had a
sleep study done--which read I had chronic obstructive sleep apnea--which added the CPAP machine.

Fast forward------almost 9 months--after being diuretics for the inflammation (didn't work), oxygen, 2 inhalers, blood pressure meds, etc......

I was introduced to a GREAT company for health & wellness supplements. I re-started my journey on 12/6/15. So far I have lost 50 lbs & over 52.5 " overall....AND making additional income just from sharing my story.

I am now off of the oxygen, inhalers, blood pressure meds, & my Leg/feet inflammation is GONE!

1st 8 days I lost 16.2 LBS & 10.5 inches
Day 30---31.4 LBS & 27.5 inches
Day 75---46.8 LBS & 42.5 inches
Day 107--50.4 LBS & 50.5 inches


I still have a long way to go...but am feeling GREAT !

    Thanks for the comment on my blog - in spite of a lot of creaking, too many overpaid people at the top end, etc., our British National Health Service is still something which we hold very dear; healthcare free at the point of use for all, not just those able to afford private healthcare or insurance, is something which we all willingly pay into although there are areas which are badly in need of reform. I'm not convinced that what happened to me yesterday was quite what I think falls into the category of 'reform' but BOY did it take my mind off 5 weeks of agony for a while!!! And writing about it took my mind off the pain too, i even laughed as I wrote the blog!

    This pesky weight business is one thing but SP brings together all sorts of people and experiences and the whole thing enriches my life and weight struggle.

    Keep at it - you are a most attractive a lady whatever your weight!!

    Warm wishes from England.....

    Jo

    Thank you for the Birthday wishes! I'm so far behind on my emails that I'm wondering if I'm ever going to get caught up!
